Advantages of Dental Implants in Bernardsville

Bernardsville Dentist Serving Morristown, Basking Ridge, Mendham, Chester, and Far Hills, NJ

Tooth decay, gingivitis, and injury are responsible for millions of teeth lost each year by Americans of all ages. Modern dental technology allows more advanced and longer lasting treatments for these problems than were ever available before.

At Proud to Smile Dentistry, New Jersey, we stay up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques available to treat our patients. That is why we have invested significantly in adopting the equipment and techniques to provide dental implants.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are currently the most advanced method available for restoring teeth. Implants consist of three parts, including the implant, the abutment, and the restoration. Together, these parts complete the design of an independent and sturdy restoration that matches your natural teeth and can be used to replace one or more missing teeth.

Multiple Advantages

The advantages to using this method of tooth replacement include:

  • Longer lasting restorations
  • No need to rely on surrounding teeth for support
  • No damage caused to surrounding teeth during placement
  • No damage to surrounding gums during placement
  • Less recession of gums and jaw bone

Dental implants are designed to fuse with your jaw bone, resulting in a permanent and reliable replacement of a missing tooth that closely resembles your healthy teeth and provides an improved appearance.

Many dental patients have suffered for years with poorly fitting dentures. The dental implant has eliminated the need to rely on this out-dated form of tooth replacement. Implants do not slip, impair speech, or make eating a difficult task.

Overall, advantages of placing dental implants include:

  • improved comfort
  • durability
  • better oral health
  • convenience
  • increased self-esteem

The success rate of implant dentistry remains very high and is available to most patients who are in good general health, have healthy gums and bones, and are committed to good oral hygiene, regular dental care, and checkups.

The choice to have dental implants placed or to undergo any dental procedure is a personal one. You should be well-informed and take part in a thorough consultation with Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb before making any final decisions. If you are considering dental implants and would like more information, please contact Proud to Smile Dentistry online or call (908) 888-9858 today.

After a thorough, painfree cleaning by the dental hygienist (Karima), Dr. Patti repaired a molar for me. The injection and filling were painless and she explained everything throughout the process. The entire staff is professional and friendly. Best ever dental experience for someone with dental anxiety.The office very recently underwent renovation and it’s gorgeous.
