Dental Implants

Dental Implants New JerseyDental implants serve as anchors for teeth that don’t move when you speak or chew. They may be used to replace all teeth missing in a jaw
or to replace only one or several missing teeth.

A dental implant most often takes the form of a small, screw-shaped titanium or ceramic post that replaces the root-part of a missing tooth. The surgical procedure used to place an implant is actually quite minor and routine, requiring only local anesthesia in most cases. After a healing period, the implant is topped with a lifelike crown custom-made to match your existing natural teeth. Implants have a high documented success rate of over 95%, which is significantly higher than any other tooth-replacement option.
