Are you looking for dental implants in Northwestern NJ? If you have missing teeth, West Morris Dental has a solution for you. Dental implants will help improve your smile, confidence and dental health. They can support one or more missing teeth to supporting multiple teeth on a secure, fixed bridge.
A dental implant acts as an artificial tooth root in the place of a missing tooth. It is the best option to replace the loss of a natural tooth. Missing teeth present a challenge chewing and eating certain foods. Missing teeth should not be ignored as your other teeth will gradually shift and move to the open space. Also, over time your jawbone may shrink and change your facial appearance.
Dr. Jack Hyson of West Morris Dental can replace one missing teeth to an entire arch. A 3D image will be taken to plan where the implant will be placed. You implant can be placed under nitrous oxide sedation.
For single implants, you will leave the day of your implant procedure with the titanium implant placed beneath your gum. Your dental implant is left undisturbed for four to six months to integrate with the bone. Once the implant has healed, your dentist will attach a post (abutment) to the implant and take an impression to fabricate your new tooth.
To replace an entire arch of teeth, Dr. Hyson uses the FDA approved teeth in one-day system, All-on-4®. Four dental implants can be placed, and patients leave the day of the procedure with a fixed bridge attached. The All-on-4® technology can immediately restore your smile, your chewing capacity, your speech as well as preserving your jaw health.
