The Dental Implant Process in Bernardsville

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

Dental implants are the most beautiful, functional, and durable solution for replacing missing teeth. Receiving a new dental implant is a multi-step process.

Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb is a qualified implant dentist and places dental implants to ensure they are in the most advantageous position for lasting strength. This process entails a brief surgical procedure followed by the later addition of a prosthesis.

Dental Implant Placement

A consultation and thorough dental exam will determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants. If so, the first step to enjoying the benefits of dental implants is the placement of the implant “root”.

The implant itself is a tiny titanium post that is surgically placed in your jaw and will act as the replacement root for your dental crown. In the following months (usually three to six) your jaw will grow around this post and anchor it firmly in place. During this time, you may wear a temporary crown to protect the implant and give you functionality.

Dental Prosthesis Placement

After your dental implant is secure, you will return to our office for the placement of your permanent dental crown, which will serve as an artificial tooth. This porcelain crown is custom crafted to look and perform just like a natural tooth.

With proper care, which includes brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing your teeth at least once daily after brushing, your dental implants can last a lifetime. The prosthesis, however, might need to be replaced at some point.

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience at Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville and Patti Swaintek-Lamb, DMD along with her tremendous staff. I have been to dozens of dentists over the years and hands down this has been my best experience and I loved my last dentist before I moved away. They are a wonderful combination of professional and caring. Great kindness and respect is shown to their patients. It is very welcoming environment. For those who dread the dental visit I recommend this office that works to create a calming and supportive atmosphere. The dental work/care was excellent from beginning to end and I look forward to my next visit.

My two sons, 8 and 10, are both receiving orthodontic treatment from Dr. Patti and I’ve been so happy with their progress. She is very thoughtful and thorough with her plans to give them both a healthier smile.

Dr. Patti and her incredible staff perfectly mix professionalism and brilliance with an ability to make patients feel right at home. I have been a patient for almost 10 years and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. From teeth cleanings to more invasive procedures, Dr. Patti's team is unmatched. Lately I have been treating for my sleep apnea. I can say without exaggeration that the device Dr. Patti prescribed and developed for me changed my life. I went from fitful nights of frequently-interrupted sleep all while snoring like a jackal, to sleeping through the night without making a sound. My wife may be happier at this development than I am. In short, whatever your dental/sleep needs, look no further than Aesthetic Dentistry.
