Missing or severely decaying teeth can cause problems for your oral health and diminish your self-confidence. At Marvel Dental in Clifton and Passaic, New Jersey, cosmetic dentist Anna Gazu, DMD, and her experienced team offer dental implants to replace missing teeth and perfect your gorgeous smile. Schedule an appointment by phone or book online to determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implants.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium. Dr. Gazu places dental implants in your jaw to support artificial teeth. You might choose dental implants if you have missing permanent teeth or severely decaying teeth that require extraction.
Choosing dental implants with Marvel Dental can offer you numerous benefits, including:
Dental implants are sturdy, long-lasting, and support artificial teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for dental implants, Dr. Gazu and her team review your oral health history. They examine your teeth and gums and take dental X-rays. You might first require a bone graft if you don’t have a strong enough jaw bone to support dental implants.
The process of getting dental implants involves numerous steps. During your first appointment, Dr. Gazu numbs the treatment area and surgically places implants into your jaw bone, where they remain permanently.
After a healing period, she and her team can take molds or digitally scan your mouth to develop new, custom-fit teeth. When they’re ready, you can return to Marvel Dental, where Dr. Gazu securely bonds crowns, bridges, or dentures to the implants to restore your smile.
Take good care of your new implants to reduce the risk of damage. Brush your teeth at least two times a day, avoid chewing on hard objects, and floss every day. Wear a mouthguard at night if you grind your teeth. See the experts at Marvel Dental every six months for dental cleanings and exams, and call the office if your dental implants get damaged or feel uncomfortable.
Don’t live with missing permanent teeth when a simple solution offers you a full set of teeth and a beautiful smile. Call the office to schedule an appointment with Marvel Dental or use the online booking tool today.
