What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Because dental implants are crafted to replicate the structure of our natural teeth, they provide a highly stable support system for replacement teeth or dentures. Other benefits include:
What Risks are involved?
Denial implant surgery has proven to be successful for hundreds of thousands of people over the years. Negative effects such as bleeding, infection, injury to the nerves or sinus cavity or incomplete healing of the bone around the implant, resulting in implant failure, are rare. We have carried out many dental implant procedures at our New Jersey dental clinic for patients from all around the world.
During the healing process it is possible that some patients will experience discomfort, swelling and inflammation of the gums, and other minor responses to oral surgery may be present in varying degrees. If you have questions about your individual situation or would like to discuss ?what is considered normal? in the healing process, we will be happy to address your concerns.
How Do I Know if I am a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
If you face the loss of one or several teeth, or if you are dissatisfied with dentures or other options available to you, you may find that dental implants are right for you. Age is not typically a major factor. Successful dental implant surgery has been performed on young people as well as the elderly. During your initial consultation, we will help you decide. In general, we look for the following characteristics:
- General good health
- Healthy gums
- Sufficient underlying jawbone to support the implants
- A good attitude to ensure that you follow through with vital oral hygiene habits
What Type of Care is required for Dental Implants?
The care you give to your dental implants makes a tremendous difference to the overall satisfaction you experience, as well as to the longevity of the implant itself. With proper oral hygiene habits such as brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups your implant(s) will serve you well.
