Gloucester Township Implant Dentist
Living with missing teeth is a very common reality for many people. Many individuals end up experiencing the loss of teeth at some point during their lifetime, whether it is due to decay, disease, injury, or even simply old age. No matter how your teeth have been lost, it is very important that you have them replaced as soon as you can. Doing so will not only improve the appearance of your smile and instill you with confidence again, but it will also help to improve your dental health. Dental implants are one of your options when it comes to replacing missing teeth, but it is important to know whether this method is truly right for you. Here at South Jersey Family Dental our Gloucester Township implant dentist can provide you with the evaluation you need in order to find out how best to replace your missing teeth.
Dental implants are sometimes a much sought after dental replacement method because of their appearance. Dental implants are known for looking, feeling, and performing closer to natural teeth than other dental replacement methods. This is because the dental implants are surgically inserted into your jaw bone. First, titanium posts are anchored into the bone. These will act as artificial tooth roots that will keep your artificial teeth in place. These titanium posts will meld with your jaw bone as they heal over time, and when this process is complete your artificial teeth can be set into place. Each tooth is specifically designed to look completely natural and to match your mouth so that it looks as convincing as possible. If you happen to have any remaining teeth, your artificial teeth will be modeled to match them. Here at South Jersey Family Dental our Gloucester Township implant dentist can thoroughly examine your mouth in order to determine whether the surgical procedure is right for you. People who have poor dental health should not undergo this procedure, especially if they do not have enough bone mass to support the titanium posts.
Regardless of whether dental implants turn out to be right for you, it is important that you replace any missing teeth as soon as you can.

As we get older, realistic choices for permanent dental replacement, such as dental implants, become increasingly more important. Dental implants are very durable and will last a long time. Looking and feeling remarkably like your natural teeth, dental implants are used to replace missing teeth with artificial teeth. Our Glassboro implant dentist will explain to you how dental implants provide dental replacements that are natural looking as well as completely functional. In addition to being much more cosmetically appealing, implants also feel better than conventional removable bridges. Whether you have one missing tooth or several, our Glassboro implant dentist understands the importance of a full smile and the confidence it encourages. Made from biocompatible titanium, dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like your own natural teeth. Dr. Baqir Jaffery, and our well-educated staff, have advanced training in state-of-the-art implant dentistry procedures.
Although dental implants are a great alternative to removable bridges, there are some downsides to consider. Depending on the number of implants being done, the procedure can easily be a substantial investment. In order to achieve the best results, extensive use of dental implants can cost tens of thousands of dollars. When having several implants placed, the procedure is also quite time consuming. Our Glassboro implant dentist goes over all the pros and cons and will explain that the process is definitely a surgery. For some patients there are varying degrees of pain, which usually subsides after a few days. In addition to some pain, there is most likely going to be swelling and some bruising, and the crown (the false tooth that is placed on top) will need to be replaced in ten to fifteen years.
Our Glassboro implant dentist will want to make sure you are in good over-all health in order to have the optimum success with dental implants. We will need to know about any pre-existing health conditions, such as high blood pressure, or badly controlled diabetes, as well as any prescription drugs that could affect your treatment. We also let all our patients know that any periodontal disease, or related problems, will need to be stabilized before dental implant surgery can be contemplated.
