Dental Implants in Union City, NJ
If you are missing one—or even multiple—teeth, dental implants from our Union City, NJ dental office are a great way to restore missing teeth while maintaining the integrity of your jawbone. Dental implants are essentially small titanium rods that are placed into the jawbone to act as the root of a missing tooth. An artificial tooth is attached to the dental implant to complete the restoration.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- They stand in as the root of your missing tooth to prevent the jawbone deterioration in that area.
- They provide a secure foundation for an artificial tooth or dentures.
- They don’t require support from the adjacent teeth, avoiding any added pressure placed on them.
Dental Implant Procedure
The dental implant procedure takes several months from start to finish. First, our Union City dentist will place the implant. After the procedure, a few months are needed for the implant to heal, as during this time it must become integrated into the jawbone. The time it takes depends on your situation, but your dentist will be able to gauge when it is best to schedule a follow-up appointment.
During the final appointment, a crown or artificial tooth is placed over the implant and secured in place; this restores your ability to use the tooth for normal function.
