Should I Get Dental Implants?

Do you have a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth? You could be eligible for dental implants.

Dental implants can act as durable replacements for one or more missing teeth. This restorative option gives patients the form and function of real teeth with many benefits.

Benefits of Dental Implants

There are multiple benefits that dental implants can offer patients:

  • Durability
  • Improved speech
  • Reduced bone loss
  • Improved appearance
  • Long-lasting results

Dental implants can also be used to secure dental bridges and dentures for replacing several teeth or full arches of teeth.

The Dental Implant Process

Before replacing teeth with dental implants, the professionals at Montclair Plaza Dental will assess your oral health and go over your budget and goals with you. An assessment is used to ensure that dental implants are the right choice for you.

Dental implants are made up of titanium posts. These posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone where there are gaps left by missing teeth. Over a period of 3 to 6 months, the titanium posts heal and fuse to the jawbone. After this period, an abutment and permanent dental crown are placed on the post.

Dental crowns protect the post from damage and make it easier for patients to bite and chew. Dental implants are custom-made to fit each patient and fill out their smile for a natural appearance. Many patients may even forget that they have dental implants because they act and look just like natural teeth.
