What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are sophisticated prosthetics crafted to replicate natural teeth, and consist of a titanium post, abutment, and crown. These implants mimic the entire tooth structure, preventing bone loss and ensuring a lifelike appearance and functionality. Experience the benefits of dental implants, including improved oral health, durability, and enhanced comfort in speech and eating.

Types of Dental Implants

Dental implants replicate the natural look and function of teeth, comprising a crown and biocompatible post surgically implanted into the jawbone. At Somerset Oral Surgery, we offer various implant options tailored to your needs. Drs. Hecht, Jacobus, and Gordon will guide you through the process, ensuring optimal oral health restoration. Trust our practice to provide a seamless dental implant experience.

  • Single Implants: A single dental implant is a comprehensive solution consisting of an implant post, an abutment, and a custom-made crown. Surgically anchored into the jawbone, this implant restores a missing tooth, blending seamlessly with neighboring teeth for a natural-looking smile.
  • Multiple Implants: When replacing multiple missing teeth, dental implants may involve a dental bridge or partial denture. These implants restore chewing ability and prevent bone loss, offering a stable solution for individuals with missing teeth.
  • Full-Arch Restoration: For those requiring replacement of all upper or lower teeth, full-arch restoration eliminates the need for removable dentures. Using strategically placed implants, a full arch prosthetic is secured to the jaw, improving aesthetics and functionality.
  • Zygomatic Implants: Zygomatic implants are anchored in the cheekbone for stability, offering an alternative for patients with severe jaw bone loss. These implants provide a stable foundation for a dental prosthetic. Dr. Jacobus is one of the few oral surgeons in New Jersey certified to perform this procedure.
  • Zirconia Implants: Offering durability and natural aesthetics, zirconia dental implants are a metal-free alternative suitable for single or multiple tooth replacements, seamlessly integrating with natural teeth for an enhanced smile.

Dental Implant Surgery

Somerset Oral Surgery is dedicated to ensuring your dental implant journey is as comfortable and efficient as possible. You’ve placed your trust in us. We pledge to prioritize your comfort to provide a seamless experience from start to finish.

Your journey begins with a consultation with one of our surgeons, where they will conduct a detailed assessment and facilitate a conversation to fully understand your unique needs and preferences.

If you opt for dental implants, you'll receive comprehensive pre-procedure instructions to ensure a smooth process. This may include dietary guidelines and arrangements for post-surgery care.

Your surgeon will perform the surgery, starting with the creation of a small incision in your gum tissue to access the jawbone. Then, the dental implant post is precisely placed to serve as a sturdy foundation for your restoration.

After implant placement, you may receive a temporary crown or healing cap to protect the implant during the healing period, allowing time for osseointegration to occur gradually over several months.

Once fully fused and healed, you'll return to have the final crown attached, meticulously crafted to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. You'll receive comprehensive instructions for post-surgery care, ensuring a smooth recovery process.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the difference between a flipper tooth and a dental implant?

A flipper tooth is a temporary, removable denture often used while awaiting a permanent solution such as a dental implant. Crafted from acrylic, it lacks the durability and stability of a dental implant, which is surgically inserted into the jawbone to provide a long-lasting replacement for missing teeth, mimicking both function and appearance.

2. Can you develop gum disease with dental implants?

Yes, gum disease can develop with dental implants. However, adopting healthy habits such as maintaining proper oral hygiene and avoiding smoking can help prevent gum disease and ensure the success and longevity of dental implants.

3. What should I avoid after surgery?

After dental implant surgery, it's crucial to follow post-operative instructions carefully. This includes avoiding hot foods and liquids, adhering to any dietary restrictions, limiting physical activity, and refraining from vigorous mouth rinsing to protect the surgical site. Additionally, individuals taking opioid pain medication should refrain from operating heavy machinery or driving.

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

The cost of a dental implant in Somerville, NJ, depends on various factors, including the complexity of the case, the number of implants needed, the type of anesthesia administered, and potential insurance coverage.
