What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants typically consist of body-safe titanium posts that serve as artificial tooth roots. They are surgically inserted into the jaw by one of our oral surgeons, and once placed, natural tissue and bone grow around the implant post in a fusing process called osseointegration. It is this bonding process that allows implants to become a permanent part of your jawbone.
Dental Implant Anatomy 101
Dental implants commonly consist of multiple components which help to replace a missing tooth entirely:
The post serves as a replacement for your tooth roots. Most implant posts contain medical-grade titanium that won’t corrode, helping provide you with a lifelong tooth replacement benefit. Depending on your case, we may use only four posts to help restore an entire arch of missing teeth.
The abutment connects your implant post and your restoration. This tiny piece reinforces the connection between your post and your new replacement tooth or teeth.
The final restoration can either be a crown, bridge, or denture appliance. Once your implants and gums heal properly following surgery, you’ll be referred to your general dentist’s office to place your chosen restoration.
Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that can fuse with living tissue and bone. Not only do they replace missing tooth roots, but they also provide your jawbone with the essential stimulation it needs to remain healthy and strong. This is vital for helping restore function such as daily speech and chewing, which, in turn, promotes proper digestion.
A healthy, full, and functioning jawbone also helps protect natural facial features from sagging due to prolonged tooth loss. This enhances your self-confidence and improves your overall quality of life as well. With success rates of over 95%, dental implants are a reliable and long-lasting treatment for replacing one to all teeth missing in your smile.
Why Receiving Dental Implant Treatment from Skilled Oral Surgeons Matters
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are dental experts who receive specialized training to treat a wide variety of conditions affecting the face, jaw, and mouth. Many general dentists refer patients to oral surgeons when more complex care is required. As experts, our Nutley oral surgeons possess in-depth knowledge of intricate surgical procedures, such as dental implant placement, and know how to place them with precision and skill.
When it comes to restoring your smile, dental implants must be placed correctly. With decades of experience between them, Dr. Steven Bogart, Dr. Hubert Gugala, and Dr. Camille Marquis can help renew your oral health and rebuild your smile with the specialized placement of dental implants. Choosing the right specialist to place your implants helps ensure more successful and effective treatment.
Dental Implants FAQS
Ideal candidates for dental implants must be in good oral and overall health. The determining factor for treatment is the fullness and health of your jawbone. Candidates must have enough jawbone density to support implants successfully.
If your jawbone is weakened from prolonged tooth loss, or there’s simply not enough room between your jawbone and sinuses, we can help! As specialists, our oral surgeons also provide pretreatment procedures such as bone grafting, sinus lifts, and ridge augmentations to help increase your chances of successful implant treatment.
Dental implant treatment involves many steps and can take anywhere from six months to over a year to complete. The process includes detailed consultations, planning, and possible initial treatment with bone grafting and implant placement surgeries.
During placement, 3D and panoramic scanning technology help our oral surgeons place implants in the jawbone as precisely as possible. Innovative tools help measure the correct amount of force to place on the implants as they are inserted. These technologies allow experts to provide skilled placement, accurate positioning, and promote successful healing.
Overall costs of treatment vary from patient to patient. Your specific cost depends heavily on the following factors:
- The need for extractions
- The need for bone grafting, sinus lifts, or ridge augmentations
- Number of implants needed
- Location of implant
- Level of treatment complexity
