Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.
Dr. Padovan first takes X-rays or takes a panorex scan to gauge the amount of bone remaining in the mouth. Once Dr. Padovan has used this excellent diagnostic tool to decide if you are a candidate, she schedules a time for the surgical dental implant procedure. After drilling into the bone the implant will be placed into the remaining space. The healing period lasts about three months, and once the process is complete the dental implant will integrate with the bone.
Dental implants can potentially last forever, and is considered by Dr. Padovan to be the best tooth replacement method available. It is the closest option to natural teeth, and does not require other teeth be prepared or affected at all.
Our Bound Brook dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they may have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.
Reasons for dental implants:
- Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
- Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
- Restore a patient’s confident smile.
- Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
- Restore or enhance facial tissues.
- Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.
