Dental implants effectively replace teeth lost to disease, injury, or some other malady. They look, feel, fit, and function like natural teeth. Jeffrey S. Thaller, DMD specializes in dental implants in Westfield, NJ
. At our dental office, our team has the knowledge, training, and equipment to give you new teeth that look and feel just like the ones you had before.
An implant replaces the full tooth and fits directly to your jawbone. A crown or denture fitted over the implant fills gaps left by missing teeth.
Dentures become loose and a bridge may require a clasp to hold it in place. Implants don't have these problems. Advantages of dental implants also include:
A good candidate should be physically fit and have healthy gum tissue. Given the nature of the procedure, adequate jawbone density is also required to support the replacement tooth.
Once a titanium post is in place, Dr. Thaller fits the restored tooth. It takes up to six months for the implant to integrate with your jawbone. Dental implants are like your natural teeth and require the same care. To keep your implants clean, brush and floss daily. Ensure your implants, teeth, and gums stay healthy with periodic dental visits as well.
