What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a tooth root-shaped prosthesis that is designed to replace a missing tooth or teeth. The basis for modern dental implants is a biological process called osseointegration, in which materials such as titanium form an intimate bond to bone, allowing us to use these implants for restorations such as crowns, bridges and screwed-in prosthesis.Not only do implants replace missing teeth, but they also maintain the natural aesthetics of your smile. Dental implants are a permanent solution that do not move or slip inside of the mouth and require no extra daily maintenance outside your regular brushing and flossing. Dr. Rana and his team provide the Greater North Jersey area with painless and precise implant dentistry services.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best method of replacing missing teeth? Are dental implants worth it?


If you've lost a tooth due to injury, decay, gum disease, or any other reason, we recommend dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dental implants come the closest to replicating the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth.

Are dental implants painful?


Dental implants are placed into the jawbone and mirror the same function as the root of a tooth. The procedure for dental implants is usually performed while a patient is sedated. Patients who undergo IV sedation must have an empty stomach and transportation home following the procedure. Most sedation patients will have little to no memory of the procedure occurring.

What are dental implants made of?


Generally, dental implants are made out of a biocompatible metal such as titanium. Biocompatible metals are also used for other common bone implants (such as shoulder, hip, and knee replacements). The visible portion of the implant is usually made out of porcelain and is custom-made to match your existing teeth.

Are dental implants permanent?


Dental implants are designed to fuse to the bone, which makes them become permanent fixtures. Typically speaking, the success rate is nearly 100%. There are few cases in which the implant will not fuse as intended and must be removed. If this happens to occur, the procedure can be attempted again a few months later.

Are dental implants expensive?


Dental implants are not usually covered by dental insurance, but may be covered under a patient's medical insurance. Our office and your insurance company can discuss coverage options with you based on your individual case and treatment plan.

How do I care for my dental implants?


It's easy... just take care of an implant as if it's a natural tooth! This involves regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups. If you have any concerns about your implant, contact us immediately.
