Livingston Dentists Discuss the Advantages of Dental Implants

The loss of a tooth threatens the health and stability of your smile. Fortunately, at The Silverstrom Group, we offer the latest in restorative dentistry with dental implants. Dental implants allow a patient to receive single tooth replacement or even a full set of fixed dentures. In today’s blog, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, discuss the benefits of choosing dental implants for your smile restoration needs.


Strong and Natural Looking Restoration

Dental implants begin as biocompatible titanium posts inserted directly into the jawbone tissue. The bone will bond with the implant in a process known as osseointegration. This secures the implant for decades to come. After the area has healed, the implant will be topped with an abutment that holds a custom-made crown into place. For others, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will place a set of specially designed full or partial dentures. Dental implants provide durable and esthetically pleasing restorations that blend seamlessly with your smile.

Facial Structure Preservation

When you lose a tooth, the body stops supplying the surrounding jawbone with doses of calcium and phosphorus. Deprived of these essential nutrients, the jawbone dissolves. The loss of jawbone density leads to further tooth loss and an aged appearance. In fact, many patients develop jowls, sunken cheeks, and ptotic chins. When implants are placed, the body recognizes them as natural teeth, resuming the flow of nutrients to the jawbone and preventing bone loss.

Are Implants Right for You?

In order to place dental implants, you must have enough jawbone tissue to support the posts. Your Livingston NJ cosmetic dentists will examine your smile and decide if implants are the best choice for improving your smile. For patients lacking the necessary jawbone density, we may be able to perform a bone graft to shore up your bone tissue and prepare your jaw for implants.
