Dental Implants in New York & New Jersey
Implants are definitive replacements for natural teeth. Implants replace the root of your natural tooth with a titanium post, providing the needed foundation for a single tooth, multiple teeth, or the entire upper or lower arch of teeth. One of the best advantages of dental implants is that they last a lifetime.

Dental implants are typically the preferred choice for tooth replacement. A few benefits include:
Can Last A Lifetime -
Dental implants can last a lifetime in comparison to the 10 years that a dental bridge may last. Dental implants are bio-compatible and do not produce any sort of toxins from the materials used and your body will not reject them.
Implants Can Help Adjacent Teeth Feel Stable -
If you are missing a tooth, this can impact how the rest of your teeth shift. When their is a gap, your teeth will naturally shift towards that gap and can affect your bit. Dental implants can help keep your adjacent teeth stable and keep your bite healthy and natural.
Implants Support Restorations That Look, Feel, & Function Like Natural Teeth -
With dental implants, one major benefit is that they can restore you full chewing power. Most people with dental implants are unable to tell the difference between an implant and one of their own natural teeth.
The best way to know if you are a candidate for implants is to visit a dentist with training, education, and experience with dental implants for a consultation.
Some signs that you might be a good candidate are:
- If you have dentures and they become loose throughout the day.
- If your dentures move and are ill-fitting and hurt while you are eating
- Your bridge is loose.
- You are missing a tooth or several teeth.
- You have a broken or cracked tooth.
- Your tooth appears to be infected.
- Your facial appearance is sunken-in.
- You are feeling insecure about your smile because of how your teeth look and feel.
- You are having trouble chewing your food.

The cost of dental implants can vary depending on the type of implant you need and how many implants you need overall. Your dental insurance coverage can also make a significant difference in how much you have to pay out of pocket for your dental implants. We would be happy to give you an overview of the costs of dental implants before you decide they are the right choice for your smile.
Dental implants are a great choice for many patients. Yet some people might be more prone to procedure complications than others, such as people with blood clotting disorders or certain bone cancers. We will only recommend dental implants to a patient if we know they will be safe.
After receiving a dental implant, you may enjoy a variety of benefits. A dental implant can improve your quality of life by correcting certain oral health problems and maintaining your jawbone’s structure. Dental implants are also often recommended by dentists because there is no need to file your teeth to complete the procedure, and the implants are very close to natural teeth in form and function.
Most patients who receive dental implants report only mild pain or discomfort that fades within 48 hours of the procedure. Over-the-counter painkillers are often enough to reduce this pain.
Dental implants are highly reliable when installed by a professional dentist. About 95% of dental implant patients report that the implant is still solidly in place and comfortable at least five years after the procedure.
As long as you continue to treat your dental implants with proper dental care as you would any other teeth, the implants can easily last for decades before needing work. Some patients will never need any work done on their implants thanks to routine visits to the dentist.
The average dental implant procedure can take about one hour per jaw being worked on. Therefore, if you need one implant on the top row of teeth and one on the bottom row, then the procedure could take about two hours. However, this isn’t a guarantee. Some procedures will take less time, and others could take longer. We will give you an honest estimate of how long it should take based on the specifics of your dental health needs.
You should care for your dental implants as you would your teeth. Brushing twice a day is the best way to care for them. Usually, a toothbrush with soft bristles and low-abrasive toothpaste are best for dental implant care. Using a water pick and oral rinses can also provide great care for dental implants and natural teeth alike.
