Dental Implants in Wayne, NJ

According to the American College of Prosthodontists, over 175 million Americans are missing one or more permanent teeth. While missing teeth can impact your oral health and self-confidence, there’s good news! Dental implants are a permanent solution that can significantly improve your life by restoring your smile. Dental implants eliminate challenges such as difficulty chewing, shifting teeth, jawbone loss, and speech problems. With these titanium tooth roots, we can help you regain your confidence and enjoy a beautiful, functional smile once again. And, with innovative mini dental implants, you can experience all the benefits of dental implants with less pain, less time in a dental chair, and less impact on your wallet.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are today’s most advanced replacement for missing teeth. A dental implant fully replaces a missing tooth, including its root. We use high-end implant materials.

The dental implant process begins by extracting the damaged tooth. If the tooth has been missing for some time, you may need a bone graft to allow the implant to bond with your jaw bone during a process known as osseointegration.

Conventional implants consist of a titanium post that is placed into the jaw bone and an abutment that holds a lifelike dental crown, bridge, or denture. The surgery site and dental implant post take several months for the bone to grow around it before the dentist can place the abutment and crown.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants provide a seamless look, blending in perfectly with your existing teeth. We can use implants to replace single teeth or a full arch.

They last for years, with the post lasting a lifetime with proper care and the crown lasting for decades or the rest of your life.

Dental implants prevent teeth from moving out of position, which can cause misaligned teeth and a greater risk of tooth decay.

With dental implants, you can eat or drink anything you like and will not have to adapt your diet as you would with traditional restorations like bridges or dentures.

These tooth replacements are easy to care for, requiring the same routine as healthy natural teeth.

Mini Dental Implants: A Minimally Invasive Solution

Dental Implants in Wayne, NJ | Dr. Bruce Fine | Fine Dental CareA mini dental implant is a less invasive alternative to a traditional implant. It is ideal when a standard implant may be too large, or the bone density is insufficient without prior bone grafting. These implants are smaller in diameter but function similarly to secure dentures or replace missing teeth.

The procedure for placing mini dental implants is straightforward and minimally invasive. This approach reduces both the procedure duration and the recovery period compared to traditional implants. Often, Dr. Fine can place mini implants in a single appointment, offering immediate improvement in the stability of dentures or other prosthetics.

Mini dental implants are particularly beneficial for patients looking for a faster solution for replacing missing teeth. Additionally, they can be an ideal option for patients who are not candidates for conventional implants due to insufficient bone volume and who do not wish to undergo extensive bone grafting.

The Mini Dental Implant Difference

Mini dental implants offer several advantages over conventional ones:

  • Less discomfort and downtime: Due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, patients generally experience minimal discomfort and a quicker recovery.
  • Immediate results: In many cases, mini implants can be loaded immediately, allowing patients to enjoy the benefits of new teeth right away.
  • More cost-effective: They are often more affordable than traditional implants because they require less bone grafting and fewer visits.
  • Long-term outcomes: Like traditional implants, mini implants stimulate the jawbone, helping to maintain its health and prevent deterioration. They also last just as long as conventional implants, serving the same purpose without complex surgery.

The team at Fine Dental Care uses the latest technology and techniques to provide innovative prosthodontic treatments, such as mini implants. With his extensive experience and credentials in implantology, Dr. Bruce Fine ensures that patients receive the most appropriate and effective treatment for their dental needs.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Dental Implant?

People with missing or compromised teeth are often excellent candidates for dental implants. People who get implants should be in generally good oral health, with tooth decay and gum disease under control. Good candidates for implants also have adequate bone mass in the jaw.
