Dental Implants in Williamstown, NJ
Tooth loss can occur for a number of reasons, but it’s always a devastating blow to your oral health and sense of self-confidence. What’s worse is that, if left untreated, remaining healthy teeth can begin to shift out of position to fill the space. Jawbone deterioration, periodontal disease, and additional tooth loss may also occur over time. Here at iSmile Dental Arts, Dr. Wael Kassem’s top recommended reconstructive solution is dental implants. This revolutionary solution is long-lasting, durable, and completely natural-looking so that patients can get back to enjoying a smile that feels truly whole again.
The Dental Implant Process
The secret behind the success of implants is that they replicate the entire structure of the tooth, not just the crown that shows when you smile. By providing a new tooth root as well, implants keep the jawbone full and healthy, helping patients lessen the chances of deterioration and additional tooth loss over time.
Once Dr. Kassem has determined that you’re a viable candidate for implants, the first step will be to recommend you to a trusted oral surgeon or periodontist in the area who can successfully perform their surgical placement. Then, patients will need to undergo a period of healing so that the new implant(s) can form a bond with your natural tissue. Finally, you’ll return to our Williamstown, NJ office so that we can design and place new, tooth-colored restorations on top, giving you back the complete, capable smile you’ve been sorely missing.
Implant-retained prosthetics are a great choice for patients who currently wear traditional dentures or have suffered a significant amount of tooth loss. Instead of restoring each placed implant with its own crown, Dr. Kassem can save you valuable time and money by instead creating a denture and/or bridge that can simply snap over the implants in your jaw, creating a sturdy and confident feel for your newly completed smile. Both fixed and removable options are available, depending on your unique preference.
