The office of Donna Vagnozzi-Bucci, DMD, PC offers complete dental implant services in our Hopewell Township, NJ dentist office from extraction to surgical implantation to final restoration. Dental implants are the most natural-looking and advanced solution for the replacement of missing teeth. A durable, permanent treatment for tooth loss, dental implants promote healthy gums, a strong bone structure, and overall oral health.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone beneath the gum line. This titanium post will act as the tooth root providing a durable foundation for the replacement tooth. Then Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci will use that to attach a new dental restoration. There are many options available if you are missing teeth. The main difference between dental implants and dental bridges or dentures is that dental implants replace the actual root structure of a tooth. This means that the prosthetic tooth (or teeth) is permanently fixed in the mouth and does not require any support from neighboring teeth or use of adhesives.
Types of Dental Implants
Our Hopewell Township, NJ dentists will use dental implants to successfully and securely replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or to secure a denture when an entire arch of teeth have been lost or removed.
Single Tooth Dental Implant– Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth. Dr. Heering will place the implant post in the root canal. Once healed, the abutment will be attached, and a dental crown will be used to complete the restoration.
Dental Implant Secured Bridge– A dental bridge is often used to replace several consecutively missing teeth. Traditionally secured using prepared adjacent teeth; Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci usually recommends securing dental bridges with dental implants. Implants provide more structural support for the jaw and bite and need less maintenance.
Dental Implant Secured Denture– Many patients struggle with ill fitted dentures. Dentures are prone to slipping or falling out, causing embarrassment for patients. Dentures can be secured using about four strategically placed dental implants in is a process known as “all-on-four”. Dental implant secured dentures allow patients to enjoy a diet without restriction and can help patients feel more confident in their smile.
