HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOUR SMILE!
A dental implant is a small titanium fixture placed into the jaw bone beneath the gum in a procedure performed under local or general anesthesia. The implant can be placed in either the upper or lower jaw and will fuse with the bone over time, thus serving as an anchor for the replacement tooth/teeth. Following the healing time the fixture is uncovered and an abutment, the support for the replacement teeth, is attached to the implant. This abutment provides the base for the crown or prosthesis. The new tooth is constructed using a special technique that matches the size, shape and color of your own teeth.
Implant supported crowns and bridges are highly successful.
In fact, statistics confirm a success rate of nearly 95% for individual implants - even higher for the bridges they support if treatment is performed by specialists. Well-documented case studies show that implants placed in patients 35 years ago are still functioning today.
Cost of dental implants
The fee for tooth replacement with dental implants will depend on several factors, including the number of teeth being restored and the number of implants required to support your replacement teeth. Some additional procedures, such as bone grafting, may be required prior to the placement of your dental implants to ensure their longevity. Your dentist will recommend the treatment that is best for you. For more information call our office at (856) 783-5777 or email us
There is no age restriction for having dental implants. Health is more of a determining factor than age. If you're healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you're probably healthy enough to receive dental implants. Certain chronic diseases may contraindicate implant treatment. Your dentist will assist you in determining if you are a candidate for dental implants after a careful evaluation of your dental and health history.
Dental implants are often a permanent solution to dental problems.
The implants are stable, comfortable and look, feel and function like natural teeth. This means that you can eat and drink whatever you like without restriction. People who have felt embarrassed and worried because of their tooth problems are astonished by what new permanent teeth can do for their self-esteem. When dental implants are used in combination with modern restorative dentistry, their appearance, comfort, and function often exceed all expectations.
