Dental Implants in Montville
Individuals with loose, missing, or infected teeth are very often good candidates for dental implants. Dental implants offer a revolutionary option designed to mimic the aesthetic and function of your original tooth, or teeth. Each dental implant is custom-crafted for the best possible fit and appearance. Dr. Kenneth Gluck and his team provide exceptional dental implant services to Montville, Towaco, Pine Brook and surrounding Jew Jersey Communities.
When you begin dental implant treatment, you will start off with one of our comprehensive evaluations to determine if your oral health and overall health is compatible with the procedure. Healthy gums, bones, and a healthy immune system are all important factors needed to make implant surgery a success. Some benefits of dental implants include:
- Improved self-confidence
- Encourages new jaw bone growth
- No damage to surrounding teeth
- Easy to clean and maintain
Dental Implants for Single-Tooth Replacement
Implant treatment for one tooth usually involves three basic steps; Placement of the implant, a healing period, and placement of the crown. We use x-rays and other pictures to assist in the planning process. Then Dr. Gluck surgically places the implant into the jawbone.
Implants are made of titanium and other materials that are well accepted by the body. Implants are also a good value because they can last a lifetime with good care. The healing process involves osseointegration, the process of the jawbone growing around the implant to firmly hold it in place. It may take several weeks until the implant is fully integrated into the bone. During this time, you will have a temporary tooth placed on top of the implant so you can eat and talk normally.
After your healing is complete, you will get your new, custom-made dental crown. This crown is designed to look just like your other teeth and is attached to the implant post.
Other Implant-Supported Options Available
Many people choose to replace several teeth with dental implants. This process involves the strategic placement of two or more implants. Some people may require bone grafting which adds more time to the healing process. However, our implant-supported bridge and denture patients find this method of replacing teeth much more reliable as provides stability and feels more natural than traditional bridges or dentures.
