What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants offer numerous advantages, including a natural appearance and functionality that closely resemble your own teeth. With their durability and longevity, dental implants provide a permanent solution to missing teeth, promoting oral health, and preventing bone loss. Experience enhanced comfort, improved speech, and preserved surrounding teeth with this innovative dental restoration option.

Types of Dental Implants

Dental implants consist of a crown and biocompatible post to mimic natural teeth in form and function and are surgically implanted into the jawbone. Somerset Oral Surgery offers diverse implant options tailored to your needs, under the expert guidance of Drs. Hecht, Jacobus, and Gordon. We prioritize your comfort and satisfaction throughout the implant process, ensuring a seamless experience from consultation to recovery.

  • Single Implants: A single dental implant is made up of three essential components: an implant post, an abutment, and a custom-made crown. Surgically anchored into the jawbone, this implant replaces a missing tooth with a natural-looking crown that matches adjacent teeth, ensuring both durability and aesthetics.
  • Multiple Implants: To address the replacement of several missing teeth, multiple dental implants may involve a dental bridge or partial denture. These implants restore chewing ability and prevent bone loss by securely replacing missing teeth, enhancing overall oral function.
  • Full-Arch Restoration: For individuals necessitating the replacement of all upper or lower teeth, full-arch restoration offers a permanent solution without the need for removable dentures. Strategically placed dental implants secure a full-arch prosthesis to the jaw, delivering both beauty and functionality to the smile.
  • Zygomatic Implants: Zygomatic implants present an alternative for patients with significant jaw bone loss. Anchored in the cheekbone rather than the jawbone, these implants offer stability without requiring a bone graft, providing a reliable foundation for a dental prosthetic. Dr. Jacobus is one of a handful of oral surgeons in the state qualified to perform this procedure.
  • Zirconia Implants: Providing a metal-free alternative, zirconia dental implants are crafted from biocompatible ceramic, offering durability and lifelike aesthetics. Suitable for single or multiple tooth replacements, these implants seamlessly integrate with natural teeth, enhancing both appearance and function.

Dental Implant Surgery

At Somerset Oral Surgery, we prioritize your comfort and satisfaction throughout your dental implant journey. We understand how much trust you place in our hands when you choose our practice. Our promise is to deliver a straightforward, comfortable, and efficient experience.

Your journey begins with a consultation with one of our surgeons, where they will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your mouth. They will also take the time to understand your needs and goals fully.

Before your dental implant surgery, you’ll receive detailed instructions to prepare for your procedure. These instructions often include dietary adjustments and arrangements for postoperative transportation.

After you receive anesthesia, your surgeon will begin the surgery by creating an incision in your gum tissue to access the jawbone. After the incision, a dental implant post is securely anchored in the jawbone to serve as an artificial tooth root.

Following implant placement, you may receive a temporary crown or healing cap to protect the implant during the healing process, which involves osseointegration over several months.

Once the implant is fully fused and healed, you'll return for the final crown attachment. You'll receive comprehensive instructions for post-surgery care, including oral hygiene practices and how to manage any discomfort or swelling.

Types of Anesthesia

We offer several forms of anesthesia to ensure your comfort.

Cost of Dental Implants

The cost of any oral surgery treatment is dependent on a variety of factors, all contingent upon the needs of each individual patient. The final cost will be determined by several factors including:

  • The type of anesthesia used.
  • The number and type of implant used.
  • The complexity of your case.
  • Your insurance coverage.

During your consultation, we will provide a cost estimate. We offer financing and accept different payment methods. To learn more about your options, contact our office to schedule a consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Are there differences between flipper teeth and dentures?

Flipper teeth, temporary and removable dentures, are commonly used as interim solutions until more permanent options, like dental implants, are available. Crafted from acrylic, they lack the stability and durability of dental implants, which are surgically implanted in the jawbone, offering a durable and natural-looking replacement for missing teeth.

2. Can dental implants still get gum disease?

It's possible to develop gum disease with dental implants. However, practicing good oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing, and refraining from smoking can reduce this risk, promoting the long-term success of dental implants.

3. How should I be careful after surgery?

Following dental implant surgery, it's important to adhere to post-operative instructions to ensure proper healing. This includes avoiding hot foods and beverages, adhering to any dietary restrictions, minimizing physical activity, and refraining from aggressive mouth rinsing. Individuals taking opioid pain medication should also avoid tasks requiring full concentration, such as operating heavy machinery or driving.

4. How much does a dental implant cost in Lebanon, NJ?

Dental implant costs in Lebanon, NJ, can vary based on factors such as the number of implants required, the complexity of the procedure, and any insurance coverage. For a personalized cost estimate, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our experienced team.
