What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are replacement dental devices that the dentist surgically inserts into your jawbone to replace your missing teeth. These devices consist of small metal posts with abutments, and prosthetic teeth attached to these abutments which can replace one, several, or all of your missing teeth in either jaw. At Paragon Dental we offer single-tooth and full-arch implants and implant restorations for damaged implants.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Restoring Full Chewing Functionality

With dental implants, you can confidently bite into that juicy steak or enjoy crunchy apples, ensuring that your dental health doesn't hinder your culinary experiences. Moreover, implants enable proper articulation of words, making it easier to pronounce certain sounds that may be challenging with missing teeth.

Long-Term Investment

With proper care, implants can last up to 30 years or more. This longevity surpasses other restorative dental treatments like dentures, which typically require replacement after several years. By choosing dental implants, you can avoid the hassle and expenses associated with frequent replacements. Maintaining implants is also straightforward – just brush and floss them like your regular teeth, ensuring good oral hygiene and extending their lifespan.

Enhancing Facial Aesthetics

Missing teeth can have a significant impact on your facial aesthetics and self-confidence. Fortunately, dental implants address this issue by providing a comprehensive solution. Implants replace all the missing teeth, giving you a beautiful smile that enhances your facial appearance. By restoring your complete set of teeth, implants help you feel more comfortable and confident in social situations, allowing your natural radiance to shine through.

The Dental Implant Process

Consultation and Treatment Plan

To begin the process, Middletown dentist Dr. Danielle Indelicato will examine your teeth and oral cavity to determine your suitability for the procedure. This phase will involve a comprehensive examination of your teeth, that includes X-rays, TMJ tests, and other tests. If suitable, she’ll create a treatment plan outlining the procedure, timelines, and crucial details about your treatment.

Implant Placement and Osseointegration

The actual treatment involves creating a small cut on the gum tissue to expose the jawbone. Once exposed, Dr. Danielle Indelicato will drill a hole and insert the dental implant (a titanium or zirconium oxide post) into the jawbone. After inserting the implant into the jawbone, you'll go home for the jawbone to osseointegrate with the implant.

Abutment Placement and Restoration

After osseointegration, Dr. Danielle Indelicato will schedule an appointment to place the abutment. She’ll open up the gums once more and attach an abutment to the implant. She’ll then compare your teeth to a color guide to find prosthetic teeth that match your tooth color. Dr. Danielle Indelicato will then attract the prosthetic tooth to the abutment, ending the process.

Frequently Asked Questions

One of the many benefits of dental implants is their ability to restore normal function to your mouth. This includes eating. Once your dental implants have healed and your new teeth are securely attached, you should be able to eat normally.

However, it's important to start slowly. In the weeks following your implant surgery, stick to soft foods and liquids to avoid putting undue pressure on your new implants. As your mouth heals, you can gradually reintroduce harder foods.

Once fully healed, your dental implants should function just like natural teeth. You can enjoy your favorite foods without worry. However, it's still important to avoid extremely hard or sticky foods that could damage your implants or the attached crowns.

Remember, while dental implants are designed to be durable and long-lasting, they still require care. Regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene, and a balanced diet will help ensure your dental implants serve you well for many years to come.

At Paragon Dental in Middletown, NJ, Dr. Danielle Indelicato and her team are committed to providing you with the information and care you need to make the most of your dental implants.

Caring for your dental implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth. However, there are a few additional steps you can take to ensure your implants remain in top condition.

Firstly, brush your teeth twice a day using a soft-bristle toothbrush. This will help remove plaque and prevent gum disease. Floss daily to clean areas your toothbrush can't reach. Consider using an interdental brush or water flosser if you find regular floss difficult to use.

Secondly, avoid abrasive toothpaste and mouthwash. Instead, opt for products specifically designed for dental implants or those that are gentle on teeth and gums.

Lastly, regular dental check-ups are crucial. Dr. Indelicato and her team at Paragon Dental can professionally clean your implants and check for any signs of potential issues. They can also provide personalized advice on how to care for your implants based on your specific needs.

The decision to get dental implants is a significant one. It's only natural to wonder whether you're a good fit for this transformative procedure. At Paragon Dental in Middletown, NJ, Dr. Danielle Indelicato and her team believe in personalized care, and they understand that every patient's needs are unique.

Generally, if you're missing one or more teeth, you might be a suitable candidate for dental implants. However, there are a few key factors that Dr. Indelicato considers. The first is your overall health. Dental implants require minor surgery, so it's important that you're healthy enough to undergo the procedure. Conditions like uncontrolled diabetes or heart disease may affect your eligibility.

Secondly, the health of your gums and jawbone is crucial. Dental implants are inserted into the jawbone, and healthy gums are necessary to protect and support the implant. If you have severe gum disease or insufficient bone density, additional treatments may be necessary before you can receive implants.

Lastly, commitment to good oral hygiene is vital. Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are essential to maintaining your implants. If you're a smoker, quitting will significantly improve your chances of implant success.

Dental implants last ten to thirty years, depending on the type of implant and how well you take care of it. That said, you can get the most out of your dental implants by maintaining proper oral hygiene, getting regular dental cleanings and cutting down on tobacco and alcohol use.

The healing of the gum tissue after dental implant surgery takes about two weeks. During this time, you’ll still have tenderness around the region, but no pain. The jaw bone will take three to six months to osseointegrate and heal completely.
