If you need dental implants in North Brunswick, you have come to the right place. Our practice offers high-quality dental implants to restore your smile.
At Your Expressions Family Dentistry, we understand that tooth loss can impact not only your dental health but your confidence as well. That is why we are passionate about helping our patients recover from tooth loss with permanent dental implants. Our office offers endosteal dental implants.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth. Unlike dentures which are removable prosthetics, your dental implant will look and function just like natural teeth. We offer endosteal implants, which are surgically implanted in your jawbone and capped with a durable and natural-looking dental crown.
You will undergo a simple surgical procedure to place your implant. The implant must be allowed about three to six months to heal. While you heal, the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time, you can have temporary crowns installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.
After the implant has healed, it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. Once this is placed, an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration.
Once the restoration is completed, you can return to the office to attach the restoration permanently. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant, it will feel just like one of your own teeth. Be sure to brush and floss every day to keep your dental implant and your surrounding teeth in optimal condition.
Every case is different, and your treatment costs will depend on your needs. Our dentist will provide a breakdown of all treatment costs and fees during your consultation. We flexible financing options and accept insurance for your convenience.
