For our patients who are looking for an even more reliable, stronger, and permanent solution to tooth loss, we also offer dental implants. This is one of the latest tooth replacement methods, and it offers unmatched benefits compared to its traditional counterparts, which is why it comes so highly recommended by patients and professionals alike. To learn more about dental implants in our Barnegat, NJ dental office, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Gizachew by contacting our dental office today.
A dental implant is a small, titanium post that is surgically placed below the gumline and in the jawbone to restore the missing root structure of a tooth. This is the only tooth replacement procedure that does this. Due to its biocompatible nature, the titanium implant is able to chemically fuse with your jawbone, providing your restoration with a long-lasting and strong foundation to be attached to, and encouraging jawbone growth with stimulation and blood flow. Once the integration process is complete, a small, metal connector piece called an abutment is attached to the implant, followed by a customized dental crown, bridge, or denture.
Dental implants are able to offer a vast list of unique benefits that distinguish them from traditional restorative options, making them the golden-standard for replacing missing teeth. Some of the benefits you’ll be able to enjoy when you get dental implants include:
The best way to learn whether dental implants are the right tooth replacement treatment for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gizachew today. We’ll conduct a thorough examination of your mouth and ask you about your medical and oral history to help determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. If you aren’t an ideal candidate right away, we offer different preparatory treatment options to help get you there. Then, we’ll create a customized treatment timeline and walk you through it.
If you’re missing a single tooth, we can replace it with one dental implant. This will hold a connector piece and a customized dental crown. Once placed, you’ll be able to enjoy a complete row of teeth and won’t have to worry about any of your surrounding teeth drifting out of place to fill the gap.
If you’re missing two or more teeth, instead of placing a traditional bridge that requires the alteration of your surrounding teeth, we can place an implant-retained bridge. To do this, we’ll insert two dental implants at either end of the space in your smile. The prosthetic can then be attached to these instead of your healthy teeth.
We also offer implant-retained dentures that can be secured to anywhere from four to eight dental implants that are strategically placed along your arch. This will eliminate any slipping or shifting that may occur when you chew your food or speak, eliminating embarrassing moments and making sure that your smile functions and feels natural.
Unlike many dental offices, NU Dental of Barnegat can complete the entire dental implant treatment in-office, including the placement surgery. Dr. Gizachew has completed additional training and education to be able to conduct your implant placement himself, allowing you to continue working with the same, trusted team of professionals that you started out with.
To determine a cost for your dental implant procedure, we’ll need to know how many implants you need, what type of dental restoration you require, whether you need any preparatory treatments, and the location of your missing teeth. We can determine all of these details during your initial consultation. At the end of this visit, we can breakdown the cost for you and discuss your insurance and financing options.
