What Are Dental Implants?

One of the most effective ways to protect your health following tooth loss is a dental implant. Their design is meant to mimic your natural teeth all the way to the root. Unlike dental bridges or partial dentures, dental implants integrate naturally with your body in a process called osseointegration. Because we place the dental implant surgically into your bone and the metal is made of biocompatible titanium, it will actually fuse with your natural bone. This creates greater stability and reduces bone loss.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

We can perform every step of the dental implant process in-house, so you don’t have to worry about driving across town to see a specialist for the surgery. You can expect the implant process to follow these four steps:

  • Initial Consultation: During your dental implant consultation, we’ll need to determine whether or not you’re a candidate for dental implant placement surgery. Depending on our findings, you may have to undergo bone grafting or other preparatory procedures before moving on to the next step.
  • Dental Implant Surgery: Your mouth will be numbed for your implant surgery. After making an incision in your gums, we will insert the dental implant post(s) at carefully chosen locations in your jawbone.
  • Osseointegration/Abutment: It will take about three to six months for your dental implant posts to fuse with your jawbone. Once they have, an abutment can be attached to each post. The abutments are what will eventually anchor the final restoration in place.
  • Delivery of the Dental Implant Restoration: We’ll take an impression of your mouth in order to design a lifelike crown, bridge, or denture. Once it’s ready, we can schedule one final appointment to attach it to your dental implant post(s).

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Dental implant restorations are designed to mimic the appearance of your natural teeth. Meanwhile, the dental implants themselves will feel like a natural part of your body once they’ve joined with your jaw.
  • Dental implants offer enough chewing power to allow you to eat all of your favorite foods.
  • Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants will stay firmly in place at all times.
  • The implant posts will provide your jaw with the stimulation needed to prevent bone loss.
  • Dental implants can potentially last a lifetime provided that they receive proper maintenance.

Who Dental Implants Can Help

You might be a candidate for dental implants if you meet the following criteria:

  • You are missing at least one tooth.
  • You don’t have any health issues that would prevent you from having surgery done.
  • Your mouth is free of gum disease.
  • There is enough bone in your jaw to support dental implant posts.

We’ll help you figure out whether you’re a candidate for implant surgery during your initial consultation. Then, we’ll explain what kind of implant treatment you’ll need based on the number of teeth you’re missing.

Missing One Tooth

A single dental implant post can be placed in the area of the jaw where the tooth used to be. After it has fused with the bone, we can restore it with a dental crown that matches the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. Choosing a dental implant crown over a traditional dental bridge means we won’t have to remove any of your natural enamel.

Missing Multiple Teeth

The implant bridge allows for the replacement of multiple missing teeth while providing stability and bone-retention. By adding dental implants to your dental bridge, you can replace multiple missing teeth and avoid a partial denture.

Missing All of Your Teeth

One of the greatest challenges that come from dentures is a good fit. A few dental implants can hold your denture in place and give you greater confidence while eating and speaking.

All-on-4 Dental Implants

Model of All on 4 dental implants

The All-on-4 procedure is a special kind of dental implant treatment that involves replacing an entire row of teeth with just four implant posts. Said posts are placed at specific angles that let them take advantage of the areas of the jaw where bone density is highest; this makes the All-on-4 procedure a viable option even for those who have experienced bone loss.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

The overall cost of dental implants in West Caldwell can vary based on several factors, such as the number of implants required, the type of restoration needed, and whether bone grafting or other preparatory procedures have to be performed. Our team can give you an estimate of how much you can expect to pay for dental implants during your initial consultation. Keep in mind that insurance typically won’t pay for the actual implant posts, but it might still cover other parts of the process.

Cone Beam CT Scanner

Cone beam C T dental scanner

Our state-of-the-art cone beam CT scanner allows our team to capture detailed, high-quality 3D renderings of your entire facial structure, allowing us to view your sinuses, facial nerves, and jawbone density. We typically utilize this instrument to help us plan for dental implant placement. Not only are we able to see details we can’t with a traditional X-ray, but it’s fast and effective, only taking about 30 seconds to capture.

Digital Dental Impressions
