Replace Your Missing Teeth – Roots and All

Traditional dental bridges use your natural teeth for support while dentures rest on your gums. Dental implants, on the other hand, can go one step further and act as new tooth roots. Not only does this make them stronger and more stable than other tooth replacement options, but it also means they offer various benefits that you wouldn’t see with other treatments. Set up a consultation at AV Dental Associates of Jersey City so that Dr. Arash Vahid can help you determine whether or not dental implants in our Jersey City, NJ dental office are right for you.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are durable, natural-looking prostheses that replace lost teeth. An implant is a small titanium post that is compatible with the oral tissues and bones that integrates into the jaw, and it acts as the missing root while supporting an artificial crown.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

The dental implant process isn’t exactly the same for everyone, but it can be broadly divided into four stages:

  • First is the initial consultation. We’ll examine your mouth, take note of how many teeth are missing, and determine what preliminary treatments might be needed to prepare you for implant surgery.
  • Once you’re ready to get dental implants, we’ll set an appointment to perform the procedure in-house. The implants are surgically inserted into pre-selected areas of the jaw.
  • After about three to six months, the implants will have fully bonded with the jaw, at which point we can attach a metal connector piece called an abutment to each post.
  • We’ll take impressions of your mouth to design a crown, bridge, or denture. Then, once the final restoration is ready, we’ll attach it to your implant posts and put the finishing touches on your new smile.

Who Dental Implants Can Help

A big advantage of dental implants is that they can be used to replace missing teeth in many different scenarios. If you’re an adult with good oral health and a jaw with plenty of bone density, odds are that you’re a good candidate for dental implant treatment no matter how many teeth you’ve lost. During your consultation, we will go over the dental implant process with you and explain what kind of treatment you can expect depending on how many teeth need to be replaced.

Missing One Tooth

You only need one dental implant post to replace a single missing tooth. Once the area around the post has healed and an abutment has been placed, we can attach a dental crown to the implant. Said crown will fill in the space in your smile so that your remaining teeth don’t start to drift out of place.

Missing Multiple Teeth

There’s no need to get a separate implant post for each missing tooth. If you’ve lost three or more consecutive teeth, we just need to place a couple of implants to support a dental bridge. When a bridge is held by implants, it means that we don’t have to make any alterations to your existing tooth enamel to secure the restoration in place.

Missing All of Your Teeth

Even if you’ve lost all of the teeth in your upper or lower row, dental implants can still help you restore your smile. With four to six implant posts, we can secure a full denture to your mouth. Implant dentures are in no danger of slipping, and they offer better chewing strength and stability compared to traditional dentures.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

The cost of dental implants varies from person to person, and we never want to give an estimate we can’t stick to. We will, however, always provide a treatment estimate before beginning any procedure so you know what to expect. A full evaluation will give us the information we need to get started. Additional treatments, such as bone grafting and addressing any oral conditions like gum disease will impact the cost of your care.
