Dental Implants in Cherry Hill, NJ - Replace One or More Teeth in Camden County
Problems after Losing a Tooth
No matter how you lose a tooth, replacing it is essential to your oral health. Not doing so can lead to a variety of dental issues including bone loss, unwanted movement of existing teeth, gum disease, and poor oral health. Moreover, when you lose a tooth, it can affect your smile as well as your facial appearance.
Tooth loss is more than a cosmetic concern -- it can impact your teeth’s alignment and lead to loss of bone volume in your jaw. While some dental interventions can replace a lost tooth in terms of appearance, dental implants can help restore your smile and improve your oral health without involving other teeth unneccessarily.
What Is a Dental Implant?
Otherwise known as an artificial tooth, a dental implant provides a fabricated tooth with roots to replace the missing one. A dental implant consists of a titanium rod, which preserves bone in your jaw in absence of your natural tooth root; an abutment, which attaches to the portion of the titanium outside of the gums; and a crown or cap that is specially designed to blend in with your existing teeth.
What Makes You a Good Candidate to Receive a Dental Implant in Cherry Hill?
If you have any of the following conditions, a dental implant might be a viable solution:
• Missing tooth or teeth (current or from a long time ago)
• Existing bridges or dentures that don't fit or are hard to clean
• Severely decayed tooth or broken down teeth that is beyond repair
What Should You Expect with Your Dental Implant Treatment?
During the initial appointment, Dr. Ahlo will discuss your medical and dental histories, along with your current concerns. We then move onto the planning stage where all options will be reviewed. After your implant is placed by Dr. Ahlo, gum tissue will be given time to heal before the new tooth can be made and attached by Dr. Espinoza. The entire dental implant process can vary, depending on the patient and the situation.
What Are the Benefits of Getting Dental Implants in Our Cherry Hill/South Jersey Office?
Our experienced professionals provide the highest quality of dental care. Dr. Joesph K. Ahlo DMD, MS, Board Certified Periodontist, has comprehensive training in the placement of dental implants and has received training in both surgical implant therapy, as well as the bone grafting that might be necessary prior to implantation. In conjunction with Dr. Espinoza and Dr. Wessner, Haddonfield Dental can both place and restore dental implants in the conveniecne of one place, without having to send patients to outside professionals. We can complete even the most difficult cases for dental implant placement and restoration at the specialty level of care.
Dental implants offer an appealing alternative to bridges or a partial denture for patients who have experienced tooth loss. The dental implant is a permanent way to replace the tooth that is more secure than a partial denture and requires no alteration to surrounding, healthy teeth and gum tissues as with a fixed bridge or removable denture. Only a dental implant can encourage jawbone growth and prevent further bone loss from the lack of a natural tooth. While the crown over your dental implant should last for a decade or more, Haddonfield Dental can restore your dental implant in the face of wear and tear by creating a new crown.
If you could permanently restore your missing or severely damaged teeth via a treatment that benefits your overall oral health, why wouldn’t you? Contact our Cherry Hill dental office today to find out how our dental implant specialists, Dr. Ahlo and Dr. Espinoza, can help restore your smile’s natural beauty and function.
