Do you have missing teeth? Our dentist may recommend dental implants for you! These custom-fitted implants look and function like your real teeth and are a great alternative to dental bridges. We encourage you to call Portale Dental, PA at 201-945-5777 to learn more about dental implants in Ridgefield, New Jersey, and schedule a consultation with Dr. Joseph Portale.

Dental implants are an excellent solution to missing teeth. They can be used to replace one or more teeth and are stable, long-lasting, and permanent oral appliances.

Dental implants comprise two parts: the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post is best described as an artificial “root” of the replacement tooth. Made out of titanium, it is fused to the jawbone to provide proper structure and support for the restoration. The implant restoration is the “crown,” or top, of the tooth and is placed like a cap over the implant to mimic a real tooth. The restoration itself is custom made to match your smile and can be used with the same utility as a normal tooth.

Dental implants will require multiple dental appointments to our office. Our dentist will discuss your treatment plan with you as you progress through the stages of the implant process to monitor your oral health throughout. We invite you to ask questions before, during, and after treatments so you can stay informed about your care.

If you would like more details about dental implants, give our office a call and schedule a consultation with our team. We look forward to your visit!

FAQs

Here are answers to the most popular questions we get from patients interested in getting Dental Implants:

What are the benefits of dental implants?

  • Implants are fixed in place and look and perform almost like natural teeth
  • Implants fit precisely without slipping or the need for adhesives
  • Implants preserve facial features, and restore a natural smile
  • Implants avoid damage to surrounding healthy teeth
  • Implants prevent loss of bone in the area of the missing teeth
  • Implants improve your appearance, your confidence, and your ability to eat the foods you like without worry about your teeth
  • plant treatment can last a lifetime

Am I too old to have implants?

Age is not a factor for dental implant success. Bone healing around dental implants occurs in patients from the 6th to the 10th decade of life with almost equal success as in younger patients. The only thing to stand in the way of dental implant treatment in the elderly is general medical health, your Portale Dental dentist can discuss this with you at your consultation.

How painful is the dental implant procedure?

This procedure, as any other oral surgical procedure, has some associated discomfort. However most implant patients comment that they were surprised at how minimal and short the duration of discomfort was.

How long will my implant last?

Dental implants are designed to last for a lifetime. You can keep your dental implant in good condition by practicing good oral hygiene at home and by visiting our office regularly for preventive care. Please remember that while the implant itself may remain firmly anchored in your mouth, you may need to replace the restoration at some point in the future if it breaks or wears out.

What are the disadvantages of dental implants?

Like any minor oral surgical procedure, there is a risk of infection, inflammation, and pain, but your prosthodontist will discuss how these can be managed for your specific situation. If there is no available bone to place the implant, then bone and gum grafting procedures may be required, which can increase the cost of your treatment. However, the upfront investment can pay off in the long term.
