Are you wondering what amazing features dental implants could offer your smile?

Dealing with tooth loss as an adult can be frustrating; however, you’ll be relieved to hear that there are so many incredible ways to replace missing teeth and to give you a beautiful smile. Many adults are turning to our Budd Lake, NJ, dentist Dr. Steven Abrams to get dental implants because they are permanent, lifelong tooth replacements that are as close to the real thing as you can get. As you might imagine, dental implants offer some pretty cool and unique benefits including,

They Can Last a Lifetime

Once your implant fuses with the jawbone you don’t ever need to worry about needing to replace it in the future. It’s now part of your mouth for the rest of your life (as long as you maintain good oral hygiene). While the dental crown, which is placed over the implant, may need to be replaced every decade or so, the metal post itself will probably never need to be replaced. This means that once your implant treatment is complete, you’ll have your new tooth for life.

They Act Like Real Teeth

Who doesn’t want a restoration that mimics the look, feel and function of a real tooth? This is why so many people come to our Budd Lake, NJ, office requesting dental implants. Our team understands that the top priority of most of our adult patients dealing with tooth loss is to find a restoration that is as close to a real tooth as possible. If you want a tooth that no one will be able to tell isn’t yours then you want to consider dental implants.

You Don’t Have to Worry About Bone Loss

One of the biggest downfalls of tooth loss is bone loss. If tooth loss isn’t properly treated this can lead to significant bone loss, which is why it’s important to treat tooth loss as soon as possible. Even waiting a year to treat the problem could lead to significant jawbone damage. The good news is that an implant replaces the missing tooth roots, providing the jawbone with the stimulation it needs to stay healthy and strong.

Maintain a Healthier Smile

Another benefit of dental implants is that this artificial structure cannot develop decay, which means that you don’t ever have to worry that it might develop a cavity. However, this doesn’t mean that you can neglect the health of your implant. You will still need to brush and floss it regularly, just like you do the rest of your smile, but implants certainly make it easy to practice good oral hygiene.

Have missing teeth? If so, you will most certainly benefit from dental implants from Dr. Steven Abrams in Budd Lake, NJ. After all, these dental-implantsrestorations look, feel, and fit into your smile just like natural teeth do, and they can last a lifetime with proper oral care and maintenance. Additionally, unlike some other dental restorations, implants also stimulate bone growth to prevent jawbone loss and facial sagging.

Read on to see what these restorations from our Budd Lake office can do for you!

 

Benefits of Rebuilding Your Smile with Dental Implants

  • Upgrade smile aesthetics
  • Improved speech and enunciation.
  • The ability for your restorations to last a lifetime
  • Enhanced confidence and self-esteem
  • Protected facial bone structure

 

Different Types of Dental Implants

  • Endosteal: Typically inserted in the jawbone and made of titanium, these implants are shaped like small screws and are considered the most common type of implant.
  • Subperiosteal: Often placed on, above, or in the jawbone, these implants are frequently used for patients who don't have a healthy enough jawbone to undergo the procedure.

The planning process of placing a dental implant requires a thorough evaluation, X-ray screening, and tooth modeling at our Budd Lake office in order to ensure patient comfort. Additionally, prior to surgery, Dr. Abrams will discuss anesthetic options with you in order to determine what will work best for you during the operation. However, regardless of the adminstration route, you can expect to be fully sedated, and therefore you will need a friend or family member to drive you home following treatment.
