Dental Implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution. They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Dental implants can replace a single tooth or an entire arch of teeth.
Montville Oral Surgery Associates uses the latest technology for dental implant placement, including CT guided surgery. During your consultation, the doctor will obtain a 3D image of your mouth in order to carefully evaluate the anatomy of your jaw and develop a surgical treatment plan.
There are three parts to a dental implant: the post, the crown, and the abutment. Dental Implants are engineered from medical-grade titanium. The dental implant post is surgically implanted into the jaw bone and will act as the root for the replacement tooth. Through a process called osseointegration, the post will fuse with the jaw bone and is responsible for the dental implant’s stable foundation. The crown is a custom-made prosthesis perfectly designed to blend in with the surrounding teeth for the most natural look possible. It sits on top of the dental implant post and is the visible part of the implant. Dental Implants are a great solution for a complete tooth replacement!
