Implant Dentistry in Wayne

Replacing Your Teeth & Restoring Your Smile

If you have difficulty eating or speaking, or have been experiencing self-consciousness due to missing teeth, implants may be the right solution for you. Dental implants are often an effective solution for people of all ages, except for those who have experienced significant gum disease. At Aesthetic Smile Design, we strive to use dental implant restorations to provide patients who have missing teeth with a long-term solution.

What to Expect from the Implant Process

The purpose of dental implant surgery is to permanently place a dental implant in your bone. This procedure is performed to replace a missing tooth and restore both the functionality and health of your smile. Before the procedure, our Wayne implant dentist will perform an examination, take X-Rays, and consult with you to decide if implant dentistry is right for you and which type is right, if so. Depending on how much bone is available, a bone graft may be necessary before the procedure.

The actual dental implant surgery is typically performed in three steps:

  • The implant will be placed to connect with the jawbone. This can take three to six months for full recovery, on average.
  • An extension will be attached to the implant, known as the post. This is used to attach a replacement tooth.
  • A crown will be created which is the same shape, size, and color of your teeth, and is then attached to the implant.

Types of Dental Implants & Uses

When you are considering dental implants as a solution to losing a tooth, there are a few different types to consider. The type of implant you will get may depend on a number of factors, such as how the tooth was lost (extraction, decay, damage, etc.) and what your implant specialist suggests. We can consult with you to discuss your desired outcome and examine your current oral health before making a recommendation.

The main types of dental implants are as follows:

  • Implants to support fixed bridgework
  • Mini and micro implants
  • Subperiosteal implants
  • Single tooth implants
  • Multi-tooth implants
  • Transosteal implants
  • Temporary implants
  • Endosteal implants
  • Over-dentures
