Gaps in your smile can make you feel self-conscious. However, aside from aesthetics, these gaps have various effects on the dental implantsfunctionality of your smile. Fortunately, dental implants can fill in your gaps and more. Find out more about dental implants with your dentists at Seaview Dental Arts in Galloway, NJ.

What can dental implants do for me? 
Dental implants can fill in your gaps, regardless if you have one or many missing teeth. For a single missing tooth, your Galloway dentist surgically places one implant into its socket. A dental crown sits on top of the implant to replace the missing tooth. If you have several teeth missing in a row, your dentist will not necessarily place an implant for each tooth. Instead, strategically placed implants, usually one on either side, hold a dental bridge in place. To replace an entire arch of teeth, four or more implants throughout the arch of the mouth secure a full denture in place.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Quality: Made from implant-grade titanium, dental implants are made to last a lifetime with the proper care. You can rest assured that your dental implant is made with the best quality materials available.
  • Peace of Mind: Unlike traditional dental restorations, dental implants are a permanent addition to your mouth. Since they are completely non-removable, implants stay put and will never fall out or move around.
  • Permanent: Dental implants are permanent. While the crown which sits on top of the implant may eventually require an adjustment or maintenance, your implant integrates into the bone itself, becoming a solid and permanent part of your mouth.
  • Lifelike: Dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth. With their light-reflecting qualities and your dentist’s careful attention to detail, your implants will blend into your smile seamlessly.

Dental Implants in Galloway, NJ
Candidates for dental implants should be healthy enough to undergo the general anesthetic the procedure requires. They should also be in good dental health with a strong at-home oral care routine. Additionally, candidates should have enough bone volume in their mouth to support their implants. If the bone volume is not adequate, your dentist may recommend a bone graft to replace it.
