When it comes to restorative dentistry, dental implants are the best way of repairing a smile after the extraction or loss of natural teeth.
Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. This is why Dr. Krieger and Dr. Hur of the Franklin Lakes area are excited to tell new and existing patients all about dental implants.
Dental implants are titanium posts. These posts, which look like small screws, are surgically placed into the bone of the jaw. This provides a solid, dependable structure for strength and stability. No other restorative dental method can compare. By placing the implant in the jaw, this stimulates bone growth in the area through a process called osseointegration. Bone fuses to the implant and holds it in place just as it does a natural tooth root.
While the patient is comfortable with anesthetics and sedation, the dental implant treatment begins. The process of osseointegration, takes several weeks while your natural healing process begins. Once the healing process is complete a crown will replace the empty area and you can enjoy the improved function and beauty of a new smile.
Built to last. Dental implants are a long-term solution.
Dental implants may cost more than alternative solutions upfront, but their value holds over a lifetime. Most dental implant patients can enjoy them for many decades—most the rest of their lives! This makes dental implants for eligible patients the best treatment option for restoration.
Dental implants can repair a smile that affected by tooth loss or extraction in a way that is both functional and aesthetic. While bridges and dentures are also ways for patients to address tooth loss, neither are nearly as popular nor as long lasting as implants.
