Dental Implants

Losing a tooth to an accident or oral health issue can be traumatic. Left untreated, tooth loss can also lead to health issues.

At New Jersey Dental Centers, we offer dental implants—artificial tooth roots that secure crowns, bridges, or dentures to your jawbone.

Implants are a popular tooth replacement option for patients at our six offices throughout Neptune, and Saddle Brook, and Old Bridge, NJ...

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are designed to replace your tooth roots and support a restoration. If you are missing only one tooth, your dentist can place a single implant, topped with a dental crown. In most cases, he can support a dental bridge with two or more posts. Full dentures will require four or more implants per arch. If you have suffered bone recession, or if you are going to receive a larger restoration, Dr. Eldin or Dr. Amer may recommend mini dental implants. Our dentists will always place the minimal number of posts while still providing full support for your restoration.

Same Day Dental Implants

Our office offers same day implant options, a cutting-edge solution to the lengthy healing time and painful side effects of normal teeth replacement procedures. With computer assistance a precise temporary crown will be attached to the implant the very same day as if you have your own tooth back. The temporary crown will stay in place till the final crown is placed. By doing this technique it allows the gum and bone healing to be completed before the final crown is placed. This eliminated the risk of having gum recession after the final crown is placed. If this occurs it results in an area of metal showing between the gum and the crown — something that no one wants to see in the final result when they smile, we can send you home with a completed dental implant. With the new technology and diagnostic tools that available in our office the procedure for same day dental implants, is so precise results in significantly shorter healing time. 

A Missing Tooth Is More Common Than You May Think

What to Expect During the Procedure

To begin planning your treatment, Dr. Eldin or Dr. Amer will take x-rays of your jaw. With these images, your dentist can determine your candidacy for treatment, look for signs of bone recession, and find the best positions for your implants. When you are ready to begin treatment, your dentist will numb your gums and jawbone. He will also provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or in some cases, intravenous (IV) sedation for even deeper relaxation. Then he will create small incisions in your gums and insert the implants in your jaw. 

Your bone will fuse securely with the posts, usually over a period of three to five months. During your recovery, Dr. Eldin or Dr. Amer will provide a flipper, a removable restoration crafted to match your smile. In some cases, your dentist can attach a temporary restoration directly to your implant posts. After you have completely healed, your dentist will place abutment pieces on top of your implants. Then he will attach the permanent dental prosthetic, restoring the strength and appearance of your bite.

The Primary Parts Of a Dental Implant

"My mouth feels perfect."

A patient explains the many benefits she has experienced by undergoing dental implant placement and other treatments at New Jersey Dental Centers. She was so impressed with their work that she also brings her father to their offices.

Are You a Candidate for Implants?

If you are missing one, several, or even all of your teeth, implants can be a good solution. However, your dentist will consider a number of factors before recommending this treatment option. First, he will examine your jaw health. If you have suffered bone recession, you may not have enough tissue to support the posts. In many cases, however, Dr. Eldin or Dr. Amer can perform a bone graft or sinus lift. These procedures can restore lost bone tissue or build up a smaller area of the jaw, providing a strong base for the implants. Your periodontal health will also affect your candidacy for treatment. Gum disease can cause tissue recession and implant failure. However, after proper care, you may still be able to receive implants. Finally, Dr. Eldin or Dr. Amer will evaluate your physical wellness since you should have overall good health before undergoing elective surgery.

Reasons to Consider Dental Implants

Implant-supported restorations are the most durable and stable treatment available. When you practice good oral hygiene and attend regular appointment, implants can last for life. Because of their unparalleled stability, you will not typically need to make any changes to your diet. Your new restoration will also look incredibly lifelike. It will be custom-made to match your smile, and you will not have to worry about metal clasps or adhesive. Finally, implants can prevent bone recession and additional tooth loss, protecting your appearance and overall oral health for decades.
