Dental Implants

Restore your smile by replacing missing teeth

Dental implants are meticulously crafted to replicate the look and performance of natural teeth, consisting of three essential components: the implant post, the abutment, and the crown or multi-tooth prosthesis. The implant post, a minute screw, is skillfully inserted by your surgeon into the vacant socket, serving as a substitute for a natural tooth’s root, providing stability for secure chewing and biting. An abutment, a connecting piece, is then firmly affixed to the post, facilitating the attachment of your new tooth. After the implant site has properly healed, your new crown will be permanently fixed atop the abutment, completing the restoration process.

Dental Implants Benefits

Improved Functionality

Dental implants function just like natural teeth, allowing for comfortable chewing and biting. They restore the ability to eat a wide range of foods without restrictions.

Enhanced Aesthetics

Implants look and feel like natural teeth, providing a natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance. They can improve your smile and self-confidence.

Durability and Longevity

Dental implants are designed to be durable and can last a lifetime with proper care. Unlike some other dental restorations, they do not decay.

Preservation of Jawbone Health

Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving facial structure. This helps maintain oral health and prevents the sunken facial appearance that can occur with tooth loss.

Types of Dental Implants

A significant benefit of dental implants is their adaptability. Your oral surgeon can tailor the quantity and kinds of implants to match your specific requirements. We offer the following implants at Garden State Oral Surgery:

  • Individual Implants: We employ a single dental implant post for each missing tooth, and this process can be repeated as necessary throughout the mouth.
  • Immediate Implants: In cases where a tooth extraction is necessary, and there’s sufficient jaw bone, we can insert an implant post into the vacant socket during the same appointment.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: These bridges are designed to replace multiple adjacent missing teeth. Traditional bridges rest on neighboring teeth, potentially causing harm, whereas a dental implant can provide support for the bridge, safeguarding your remaining teeth
