Find out how this tooth replacement option could have you smiling again.
We understand how stressful and upsetting tooth loss can be; however, we live in an amazing age where dental technology makes it possible to create incredible, lifelike replacement teeth. In fact, dental implants are the closest thing you can come to a real tooth. They both look and function just like a real tooth. Are you wondering if this is the tooth replacement option for you? If so, it’s time to talk to our Ramsey, NJ, dentists Dr. Robert Boff, Dr. Banafsheh Goujani and Dr. Kenneth Gluck.
What is a dental implant and how does it work?
This metal restoration, often made from titanium, is designed to take the place of your tooth roots. In order for this to happen, our Ramsey, NJ, restorative dentist will need to place the implant into the jawbone during a minor procedure. The implant will become the foundation from which to support your false tooth.
The implant itself is not visible, as it will be hidden within the jawbone. Once the implant is placed into the jawbone the bone and tissue will fuse together with the implant, making your restoration a stable tooth replacement. While nothing can take the place of real teeth, dental implants can offer you the next best thing.
What makes someone a good candidate for implants?
In order to get dental implants, our dentist will need to make sure that you are right for this treatment. In order to do this, you will need to come in for a thorough evaluation. We will go through your medical history and discuss your goals when it comes to treatment. A good candidate for dental implants will:
- Maintain good oral and overall health
- Have a strong, healthy jawbone to support their implant
- Not smoke (or will quit smoking prior to getting implants)
- Be dedicated to the maintenance and care of their restoration
