Bring Back Your Smile With Dental Implants
Whether you’re suffering from a diseased tooth or have lost teeth due to an accident, a permanent dental implant can brighten your smile again.
No matter what your current oral situation is, dental implants are a great option to help you restore your smile and normalcy during your daily routine. Even if you wear dentures, the addition of implants can help anchor your dentures in place to avoid slippage and increase comfort.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Although installing dental implants is a surgical procedure, it is far less complicated than one might expect. Each procedure is performed under local anesthesia at our Suburban Essex office, and because we use only the latest technology, most patients will be able to return to work the next day with little to no discomfort.
Permanent dental implants can be your best solution for a variety of purposes, including replacing a single lost or damaged tooth, supporting a bridge, or as a fixed or removable denture solution.

Dental Implant Benefits
Permanent dental implants have many advantages over removable solutions:
- Implants look and act just like real teeth.
- More comfortable and durable than removable dentures.
- Easier to clean and install than a bridge.
- Does not impede eating or chewing.
- Cannot get cavities.
Permanent dental implants are made of titanium, a durable metal that is often used in orthopedic joint replacement surgeries. In the case of dental implants, a small, titanium anchor is placed within the jawbone, acting as an artificial root. After a period of three to six months, your bone will grow around the anchor.
