Dr. Menasha Provides Quality Dental Implants in Linden, NJ
For patients who have missing or damaged teeth, dental implants are a stable and permanent
way to rebuild a smile that works for both your smile’s aesthetic and oral health. Dental implants are now widely used to replace missing teeth and are often preferred over other methods of teeth replacement, such as fixed bridges and partial dentures. If your smile had been adversely affected by missing teeth, Dr. Isaac Menasha offers treatment with dental implants in Linden, NJ.
What are Dental Implants and Why Consider Them?
A dental implant is a whole replacement tooth, tooth root, and dental crown.
The root of the implant is titanium post that is surgically placed into your jaw at the site of the missing or extracted tooth. Titanium is naturally compatible with bone and is able to integrate to establish a stable hold for the implant crown. Because it fuses with bone, your dental implant post is able to nurture dense bone volume, which is excellent for your oral health. Once your dental implant post has completed the aforementioned osseointegration process and your gum tissues have healed properly, the post is topped with a custom-made crown, finalizing your seamless and natural-looking tooth replacement from our Linden dental office.
Dental implants are a popular choice as they:
- Maintain natural facial aesthetic
- Are permanent, fixed solution
- Restore bite function
- Resolve joint pain or bite problems from by teeth shifting
- Support a denture, for security and comfort
- Replace one or more missing teeth
- Fix missing, chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Are designed to look and feel like your natural teeth
- Easier to clean than other restoration options
Dr. Menasha will conduct a thorough initial evaluation for patients with missing teeth to ensure that they are an ideal candidate for teeth replacement with dental implants from our Linden dental office. Generally, if you are not experiencing signs of periodontal disease and do not have diminished bone in your jaw from long-missing teeth, you could benefit from the dental implant procedure.
Dental Implants vs. Fixed Bridges and Dentures
Dental implants are often the preferred alternative to fixed bridges and dentures for patients who are looking for a permanent way to replace missing teeth. While fixed bridges are not removable, like dentures, they require the teeth surrounding a missing tooth to be filed down in order to accommodate the bridge’s placement and do not carry the same biting power as a natural tooth. Dentures, both full and partial, can fill in gaps in your smile from extracted or lost teeth, but they are not stable and rub on gum tissue, causing tissue shrinkage and alteration of your natural facial aesthetic. Dental implants are unique, in that they do not require you to compromise on oral function or health in order to get teeth replacements that work.
