How Dental Implants Help Replace Missing Teeth

Dr. Nainesh Desai, Dr. Rahee Shah, and Dr. Warren Lorch are dentists at Central Jersey Dental Arts in Piscataway, NJ, who are here to serve you. They are well versed in dental implants and would be happy to consult, educate, and install dental implants for you. 

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants replace missing teeth. They look, feel, and even function like your natural teeth, and once installed, are nearly indistinguishable from your other teeth. Implants have titanium roots that are implanted directly into your jawbone, much like your natural teeth. A metal abutment and porcelain crown are then attached to the implant.

Dental implants are durable and will last as long as, or longer than, your natural teeth. 

The Process of a Dental Implant

If your gums and jaw are deemed healthy by your dentist, your implant will be inserted. 

Next, your jawbone must have some time to heal. You will wait a few weeks to a few months before returning for your next dental appointment. At this appointment, your dentist will attach an abutment and then a crown to the implant. 

Don’t worry; we match the crown to the natural shading of your other teeth so that your new implant looks and feels exactly like all your other teeth.

Dental Implants Never Move

Unlike bridges, crowns, or dentures, dental implants will never slip or slide. This is because they are rooted securely into your jawline, just like your other teeth. 

Implants Preserve Bone

Dental implants help you maintain your jaw’s integrity and prevent the resorption of bone. Because of this, your remaining teeth will never slide into the open space left by the previous tooth. 

Implants Help Surrounding Teeth

Implants do not attach or rely on the surrounding teeth. They are securely rooted into the jawbone, so they don’t endanger the integrity of your natural teeth that neighbor the implant.
