Over the last two decades, dental implants have become one of the most desirable alternatives to tooth replacement for individuals in and around the area of Dumont, NJ. At Palisades Dental Care, Drs. Yael Kryzman, Jesse Small, and David Lefkowitz find that their excellent success rates, the versatility of use, and permanency make them the ideal option for patients looking to replace lost teeth within the smile.
Using Dental Implants to Restore the Smile
If a patient has experienced the loss of a single tooth, the remaining teeth around this area may begin to shift. This can cause gaps in the smile or misalignment of the rest of the dental arch. In the past, many dentists recommended dental bridges to help prevent movement, but the surrounding teeth had to be filed down in order to place the bridge. Instead of damaging the surrounding teeth to replace a single tooth, dental implants became a popular alternative. Dental implants maintain the alignment of the teeth while acting as a stand-alone restoration that does not rely on adjacent teeth.
The implant has the look, feel, and function of what once was a natural tooth while maintaining natural bone and preventing movement of the other teeth around them.
Who Qualifies for the Placement of a Dental Implant?
During a consultation and evaluation appointment with our dentists at Palisades Dental care, patients can find out if they are good candidates. The best patients for this treatment are those with adequate bone in the jaw to support the implant. This can be determined with the use of imaging such as CT scans and x-rays before placement.
What are the Benefits of a Dental Implant?
Dental implants have several benefits, including:
- Better aesthetics/appearance
- Protection from bone resorption/bone loss
- Improved retention
- Preservation of other natural tooth structures
