Find out whether these restorations could replace your missing teeth for life.dental implants

Dealing with tooth loss doesn’t have to feel like the end of the world for your smile. Thanks to ever-changing dental technology, our Ramsey, NJ, dentists Dr. Robert Boff and Dr. Banafsheh Goujani make it possible to regain a healthy, full smile with dental implants. While dentures or bridges can also help you achieve a complete smile, if you want a restoration that could truly last the rest of your life then it’s time you considered getting dental implants.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a restoration often made from titanium that functions just like natural tooth roots and provides a stable, long-term foundation from which to support a single dental crown, dental bridge or dentures. Whether you are missing a single tooth or all of your teeth, dental implants can restore your smile the way you want.

How do dental implants work?

Since implants are designed to take on the role of tooth roots they will need to be placed into the jawbone. Our Ramsey, NJ, general dentists will open up the gums to reveal the jawbone, and the implant will then be placed.

From there, the mouth is given ample time to heal. During this time, the bone and tissue around the implant will begin to grow around it. The implant is biocompatible, which means that it’s very unlikely that the mouth will reject the restoration once it’s placed. Therefore, as the jawbone heals it will fuse together with the implant.

Unlike dentures or bridges, implants are the only restorations that could last you the rest of your life with proper care. If you are looking for the next best thing to real teeth then dental implants are it.
