Implants dentist Montclair
Dental implants represent a level of tooth replacement that simply cannot be matched by old-fashioned bridges and dentures, as serviceable as those options are. There is nothing quite like the reliability and confidence that come from being able to speak, laugh, and chew without any worries. At Montclair South Dental, we proudly offer this magnificent way to restore your full smile again.
There are two essential components to an implant. First is the root, which is a titanium post that is surgically placed in your jaw. The second is the tooth, which is a crown made of material like porcelain. Together, they mimic the operation of a natural tooth. Bridges and dentures are more cosmetic than practical, since they lay on top of the gums. Our implants dentist Montclair
provides you with a new tooth that is anchored deep below the gums. In addition to reliability, having a new root preserves your facial contours, and keeps gum and bone tissue from atrophying. It also means that your surrounding teeth do not have to lose any material and that you don't have to use messy adhesives to hold it in place. Once the post is placed by our implants dentist Montclair, there is a waiting period of several months during which your jaw tissue grows around it and fuses with it. Only then are impressions taken for the tooth-colored crown, which is then cemented to the top of the post. You can also replace multiple teeth with implants, using them as as the foundation for an advanced version of dentures that give you the best of both types of tooth replacement.
