Dental implants offer stability and durability where other restorative dental treatments fall short. At Dental Specialists of New Jersey in Verona and Westfield, New Jersey, dentists Shalom Mintz, DDS, MS, and Louis Galiano, DMD, offer single tooth implants, multiple tooth implants, and same-day implants, as well as All-on-4® dental implants. Most frequently, the implants are placed that same day that your tooth is removed. This allows for fewer surgical procedures as well as a shorter overall healing time. Implants are typically ready for their final crowns two and a half to three months after the implant is placed. In many cases, the team can place immediate interim teeth that you can have while the implant is prepared for the final crowns.

Dental implants are small titanium posts that support crowns or dentures. After implants are placed by your surgeon, the dental implants stay in your jawbone. Unlike removable dentures, implants do not need to be removed nightly.
Dental implants are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible metal. Your bone naturally fuses with the metal over time, making the implants extra stable and durable. This also helps with chewing, and you can use the full force of your bite when you have implants and restorations.
You can get just one implant to support a custom dental crown at Dental Specialists of New Jersey or multiple implants to hold multiple teeth or to secure a denture. After your initial evaluation and treatment consultation, the team may tell you that you need a bone grafting procedure, a sinus lift, or ridge augmentation, to make your jawbone more supportive.
Dental Specialists of New Jersey offers several dental implant treatment options. You can get:
Traditional implants involve a multi-appointment, multi-surgery process that can take months to finish. With same-day implants, you can enjoy your new smile after a consultation, a single surgery, and a final follow-up visit. Your bone fuses to the implant after the surgery, and you get immediate loading, meaning your temporary restorations are placed shortly after surgery.
All-on-4 is a dental implant treatment that involves the placement of four implants across the jawbone. The four implants hold onto a denture to replace either your upper or lower row of teeth.
Crowns or dentures attached to dental implants make the best tooth replacements for several different reasons. They look and feel natural, and after you heal, they don’t require any more care or maintenance than your natural teeth.
Some other notable advantages of dental crowns are:
If you’re missing one or more teeth and would like to compare dental implants with other options, the Dental Specialists of New Jersey team can make sure you’re a good candidate and help you make your decision.
