Dental implants enable cosmetic dentists to create healthy, attractive smiles in an innovative way. Used to replace one or more missing teeth, dental implants are another cosmetic alternative to conventional bridges and dentures. In essence, dental implants can act and look like natural teeth. Furthermore, because they maintain bone mass, dental implants can help prevent additional tooth loss as well as self-conscious feelings associated with missing teeth.
Dental Implant Specialist in North Brunswick
North Brunswick, Central NJ area cosmetic dentist Dr. Irina Trakhtman is a dental implant specialist serving patients in the greater North Brunswick area of Middlesex County, NJ. Dental implants are an important part of her cosmetic practice at Rt 1 Dental as they allow patients with missing teeth to restore their beautiful and fully functional smile again.
A dental implant restoration consists of a bio-compatible titanium screw and post topped by a dental crown, bridge or denture. The dental implant is placed into the jawbone where it replaces the natural tooth root. In a few months, the dental implant securely attaches to the bone, allowing it to withstand biting and chewing forces identical to a healthy, natural tooth.
Are Dental Implants Right For Me?
The most common indications for dental implants are:
- Replacement of one or more missing teeth.
- Support of a non-removable “bridge” to replace multiple teeth.
- Support of removable dentures
- Patients who successfully pass a screening and evaluation can be considered as candidates for implant dentistry.
The primary factor in implant dentistry is the amount of bone available to create support for the dental implant. If it is determined that a patient does not have enough bone to support a dental implant restoration, a bone grafting procedure may be considered to add the necessary bone.
The North Brunswick, Central NJ cosmetic dentist Dr. Irina Trakhtman uses her cosmetic dental expertise to create a permanent tooth replacement.
