Dental implants in Rochelle Park, NJ

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are restorative dental devices that dentists surgically insert into your jawbone to replace missing teeth. They consist of titanium or zirconium oxide posts attached to an abutment. The posts act like your tooth’s root, while the abutment holds a prosthetic tooth that replaces your natural tooth. Dental implants are permanent, typically lasting for 20 to 30 years before they need replacement by your dentist.

Dental Implant Treatment Process

Consultation and Examination

The dentist will first have to determine whether you're a suitable candidate for dental implants. During the consultation, the dentist will ask you questions about your medical and dental history. They will take X-rays of your mouth and conduct dental tests like TMJ tests and others to determine your candidacy for the procedure.

Treatment Planning

If deemed fit for the procedure, the dentist will create a treatment plan for your implants. The treatment plan will include the number and type of implants, the treatment dates, and the duration of the treatment.

Implant Placement and Osseointegration

The implant placement is a crucial step in the implant treatment process. Your dentist will make a small incision in your gum to securely place the dental implant into your jawbone. Following this, we'll meticulously clean the area and apply sutures to initiate the healing phase. Over the next few months, your jaw bone will gradually integrate with the post through a process called osseointegration, creating a strong and stable foundation for the replacement tooth.

Abutment Placement and Final Restoration

Once the gums heal and the posts sufficiently osseointegrate, the dentist will schedule an abutment placement appointment. This appointment involves installing the abutment on the titanium post and placing the prosthetic restoration on top of it. The dentist will then release you with instructions for caring for your dental restoration.

Do Dental Implants Hurt?

Although considerably invasive, dental implants don't hurt because the dentist will administer local anesthetic to numb the affected region. Patients will experience mild discomfort and pain after the procedure that dissipates in a few weeks. Meanwhile, the dentist will prescribe OTC painkillers to alleviate the pain.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Anyone with reasonably good health (general and dental) is a good candidate for dental implants. However, patients with insufficient jaw bone might need bone and gum tissue grafting before they proceed. Alternatively, they could settle for zygomatic implants that are attached to the cheekbone instead.
