Have you been told that you are not a good candidate for dental implants, but still wish that you could get them? If so, you will want to visit with our local Oral surgeon. Many patients are told that they cannot get dental implants because the jawbone is not thick enough. However after getting a jawbone gum grafting procedure, they become a good candidate for getting dental implants. If you would like to meet with our Mahwah NJ best oral surgeon, simply make an appointment to visit us at our Ramapo Oral & maxillofacial Surgery practice.
At our oral surgery practice our expert and highly trained oral surgeons are Dr. David J Caponigro and Dr. Anthony Pavone. We know that many patients thoroughly enjoy dental implants because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. With dental implants you will be able to have total confidence in your smile, as well as eat anything you want in total comfort. If you are interested in getting dental implants, our Mahwah NJ best oral surgeon will want to meet with you to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedure. If it is determined that your jawbone needs to be made thicker and healthier, our oral surgeon will most likely be able to provide you with a bone grafting treatment which will then make you a good candidate for getting dental implants.
Dental implants are comprised of two sections. There is the lower root portion which is made out of a very strong titanium material. Our experienced Mahwah NJ best oral surgeon will be able to surgically insert a dental implant for each tooth which is going to be replaced. Once the healing procedure is completed, a porcelain crown will be permanently attached to the top portion of the dental implants. It is very important that the dental implant roots are precisely inserted into their correct position. Healing time takes several months during which the jawbone thoroughly heals from the surgery and the titanium root fully fuses to the jawbone. Afterwards, It is important that you carefully brush and floss your teeth every day, and have regular dental exams to make sure that your gums stay healthy. However, when well taken care of, dental implants should last for a lifetime. For an appointment to meet with one of our expert oral surgeons regarding dental implants, contact us today.
