Do you need to replace teeth but want to avoid dentures? Dental implants could be for you. Find out here.
If you need to have teeth removed due to tooth decay or periodontal disease, you might be thinking you’ll need dentures or bridgework — but you may have another option. Dental implants are a great alternative for replacing missing teeth and have a 98% success rate.
At Dental Specialists of New Jersey, we want you to be confident in your smile, and we offer dental implants to help you achieve that.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that replace your tooth root. Once the post is in place, we top it with an artificial tooth to match the rest of your natural teeth.
Unlike dentures, implants don’t need to be removed nightly, and over time, your bone will naturally fuse with the titanium post.
Who qualifies for dental implants?
Dental implants could be a viable option for you if you fit into one of the following categories:
- You’re missing one or more of your teeth
- Your jawbone is fully developed
- You have no oral tissue health problems
- You aren’t able to wear dentures
As long as you have sufficient bone in your jaw to anchor the implants, dental implants could be a great option for you.
Why you should choose dental implants
There are numerous reasons dental implants could be a very beneficial treatment option for you.
Improve overall appearance and confidence
Dental implants look very natural, making you more likely to smile and show off your pearly whites. They’re also secure, so you won’t have to worry about them slipping around like dentures. This means you can eat, talk, and smile with confidence.
You care for your dental implants just like your natural teeth. You can brush and floss them along with the rest of your teeth daily — nothing to remove and no messy adhesives.
Dental implants can also improve your oral health by promoting bone growth and your overall nutrition by enabling you to eat food that contains essential vitamins and minerals.
If you’d like to consider dental implants, our team at Dental Specialists of New Jersey offers a few different procedure options. We offer same-day implants (a single surgery) and All-on-4®, which involves four implants along your jawbone to replace a whole row of teeth.
