Restore Your Smile With Dental Implants

Dr. Margaret Somers places dental implants for patients in Hawthorne, NJ, to restore smiles. If you are missing teeth, it's best to replace them to keep your smile whole and your mouth healthy. Dental implants are strong and beautiful replacements for teeth, but not everyone is a candidate for this method of tooth replacement, so if you are missing teeth come see us and find the best solution for you.

Missing teeth

Missing teeth leave unsightly gaps in your smile that may make you self-conscious and can cause many other dental problems. Missing teeth cause issues with chewing and speaking, and over time other teeth in the area will shift, changing your bite, and wreaking havoc on your mouth! Replacing missing teeth is best for the health of your mouth and smile.

Dental implants

Dental implants consist of a titanium post that is implanted in your jaw bone, and a ceramic crown that sits on top to replace the tooth. Together they make a strong and beautiful replacement for a natural tooth, and the implant blends in with your natural smile.

Getting an implant

To get a dental implant in Hawthorne, NJ, you first have minor surgery during which the implant post is placed. The screw-like titanium post is implanted into your jaw bone, and then you heal for a period of several weeks. During this time, you wear a temporary tooth cap and the implant fuses to your jaw bone. This process is called osseointegration and it gives the implant its strength. At a final appointment, once you are healed, your permanent custom crown is placed and you leave our office with a new tooth!

Caring for implants

When you have dental implants, it's important to keep up a great oral hygiene routine at home and schedule regular dental visits. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and coming into the office for a dental visit twice a year. When you have teeth cleanings twice a year, it prevents tooth decay, gum disease, and ensures you have regular exams to keep your teeth and implants healthy.
