Are Dental Implants Right For You?

Dental implants are the restoration of choice for dentists and patients who want the most life like replacement for teeth that are missing. There are many benefits to dental implants: they look and function just like natural teeth and allow you to speak, chew and smile confidently.

Dental implants are used to:

  • Replace a single tooth that is missing or broken
  • Restore teeth with significant decay
  • Replace multiple teeth
  • Anchor a dental bridge or denture

To determine if you are a candidate for dental implants, you will meet with the dentist for a examination and consultation. The periodontist will be looking for adequate bone structure to support the dental implant and evaluating the overall health of your mouth and neighboring teeth.

We will also discuss the cost associated with dental implants prior to treatment. We accept most dental insurance and can help you maximize your benefits. We also offer flexible payment options including interest free financing through Care Credit to help make dental implants affordable.

Dental Implant Procedure

Implantation – A dental implant is a tiny titanium post that serves as the root for the prosthetic tooth (dental crown or denture). The metal root will be placed into the jaw bone by the Periodontist. The dental implant will take approximately 3 to 6 months to heal. During this time, you may have a temporary crown or bridge in place for healing and cosmetic purposes.Dental Impants Pennington NJ

Implant Restoration – After the dental implant has integrated with the bone, it will be uncovered and the cosmetic dentist will attach the dental crown to the dental implant. The dental crown is typically made of porcelain and looks like a natural tooth.

If you are having several teeth replaced, the dentist may use a dental bridge, partial denture or full denture. These types of restorations are typically secured on a few strategically placed dental implants.

After Care – The dental implant will look and function the same as natural teeth, in fact, you might even forget you have a dental implant. With dental implants, you will be able to floss and brush normally. Routine visits to the dentist are very important to ensure long term health and function of the dental implant.

Dental Implant FAQs

What is the cost of dental implants?
The cost of dental implants varies based on your specific condition. Several factors including the number of dental implants to be placed, location of those implants and your health will affect the cost for your dental implant treatment. We help make your treatment easy and affordable  through flexible payment options including interest free financing for qualified patients.

Is the dental implant procedure painful?
Our goal is for you to be as relaxed and comfortable as possible during treatment. Dental implants are placed under local anesthesia, most patients report little or no pain or discomfort associated with the procedure. Once the dental implant has healed, you will not experience any dental implant pain and may even forget you have a dental implant!Dental Implant FAQ

What are denture implants?
Denture implants, sometimes called “All on Four” or “Teeth In an Hour”, are a type of dental implant procedure that replaces most or all of a person’s missing teeth using four or more strategically placed dental implants. These dental implants serve as anchors for a denture or over bridge.

What is the difference between dental bridge vs implant?
While dental bridges and dental implants both replace missing teeth, the two types of restorations are very different. A dental implant is the most life like replacement for a tooth and requires the least amount of long term maintenance. A dental bridge costs less than a dental implant initially, however, a dental bridge is more likely to need future work and maintenance. A dental bridge does not offer the same support and stability that you get with a dental implant. And dental bridges often require the dentist to compromise healthy teeth to create a foundation for the restoration which can lead to future problems.

  • You have been such a great support in the care for our mother over these years. I wanted to keep her pain free and you helped us with that. The last miraculous feat was the saving of that front tooth that broke. It made me smile because she hated that her teeth were discolored. She would have LOVED that shiny white tooth!! Thank you for that and, for contributing to alzheimer's research in her name.

  • I didn’t go to the dentist for a while because I had bad experiences. Then a friend referred me to the Spa Dentistry office. I usually see Dr. Silk. I have a lot of confidence in him and am very comfortable with everyone in the office now. The office is beautiful and comfortable. Everyone is friendly and professional and always makes you feel comfortable. I had two bridges done that have worked out great! I highly recommend the dental group to anyone because they are very personable and always make me feel comfortable.

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Vagnozzi Bucci Spa Dental Practice since April 2002 and I’m extremely happy. I have dental insurance that I cannot use at the office however, I still choose to go there. The whole staff is superior in their technical abilities, attitude and professionalism. Every procedure I have had done there has exceeded my expectations. Painless dentistry at its finest. I can not use enough adjectives to describe and praise these doctors and professional staff. It’s not the dentistry you remember from your childhood; this is the dental practice of the future.

    Gayle D.

  • I just wanted to thank all of you for taking such good care of my aunt while she and my uncle were in the states from Australia. They were thrilled with her new teeth and told us you were amazing! I know medical/dental care is no where near as good in the U.K. or Australia as it is here, so I am glad if she had to have treatment, it was done by you. Thanks you again; I owe you one, but hope you don’t need any physical therapy anytime soon...

    David, Priscilla and Lynn
