Five Important Things You Should Know About New Teeth Implants

If you have lost one or more of your original pearly whites, here are five important facts you should know about dental implants and why it is they are regarded by many as the best the dental industry has to offer!

New Teeth Implants # 1 New teeth implants are the only dental devices that replace the crowns AND the roots of the missing tooth or teeth. Both tooth-supported bridges, partials and removable dentures only replace the visible portion of the missing teeth and this can be problematic in the long run.

“The roots of your teeth play a fundamental role in keeping the underlying bone tissue stimulated and healthy. So when this functional stimulation is taken away, the jawbone can begin to atrophy and waste away, which can have terrible consequences for a person’s overall oral health, facial appearance and candidacy for implants,” explains a dental implants surgeon in Rutherford. “This is one of many reasons we encourage patients to consider implants.”

# 2 New teeth implants are often regarded as being prohibitively expensive, when in fact, if you compared the cost of this once-time procedure to the accumulative expenses associated with wearing removable dentures, maintaining them and undergoing periodic re-fittings (as is necessary with dentures), then you’d end up with pretty much the same amount of money!

“Patients who wear removable dentures often need to invest in products such as anesthetic creams for sore gums, adhesives to prevent their teeth from slipping and soaking solutions to store their dentures in overnight,” explains a dental implants surgeon in Rutherford. “Add these repeat expenses to the need to have ill-fitting dentures redone every few years and you’re looking at a teeth replacement technology that is deceptively expensive and frankly, poor value for money.”

# 3 New teeth implants are regarded as the best option available for most people who need one, several or even all of their teeth replaced, but they cannot rival the function and longevity of your biological technology: your own natural teeth. This is why your dentist always stresses the importance of good oral hygiene, a healthy diet and regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings.

Teeth Replacement Technologies# 4 Dental implants are made from titanium metal, which is the same stuff space crafts are made out of! Professional sports equipment and fighter jets are also made out of titanium, which is so useful because of its exceptional strength, durability, lightweight, non-corrodibility and non-toxicity. Additionally – and perhaps most importantly – titanium is bio-compatible, which means that the body does not typically reject it. It’s this property that allows the jawbone to heal around the new tooth implant, fixing it in place so that it functions like a natural tooth root.

# 5 If placed by an experienced oral surgeon and cared for properly by the patient – who is presumably in good general and oral health – new teeth implants have the potential to last several decades without any trouble. In fact, they have the potential to last a lifetime!

Save Tens Of Thousands Of Dollars On The Cost Of New Teeth With All-on-4 Dental Implants

This article explains why the All-on-4 is substantially less expensive than traditional dental implant techniques and how this can save patients tens of thousands of dollars.

Dental implants are typically the number one recommendation of dentists when it comes to addressing the need for new teeth. Not only do they look, function and feel more natural than other teeth replacement technologies, they also tend to last far longer and actively promote the health of the underlying jawbone. In spite of this, many New Jersey residents still opt for conventional devices, such as tooth-supported removable bridges or removable dentures. The reason for this is primarily a concern over the cost of new teeth. Dental implants are, unfortunately, more costly albeit for good reason.

This was especially the case with the traditional dental implant techniques used to treat patients who had lost most or even all of their natural teeth, or who had been diagnosed with a “failing” or “terminal” dentition as a result of gum disease. That was until the innovation of the All-on-4 dental implant technique, the key benefit of which is the much reduced new teeth implant cost! Let’s take a look at how this “breakthrough” technique is able to reduce of cost of new teeth by tens of thousands of dollars...

All-on-4 Dental Implants 1. The All-on-4, as the name suggests, only requires four dental implants to provide New Jersey residents with a complete set of replacement teeth. Traditional techniques could require six, eight or even ten implants per jaw in order to give patients new teeth again! Half the number of implants translates into half the cost of new teeth.

2. The All-on-4 typically only requires a single surgery, whereas traditional techniques could see a patient coming in for multiple procedures over the course of 18 months. With typically only one procedure necessary, New Jersey residents are spared the multiple treatment sessions, X-rays, follow-up appointments and bills associated with multiple surgeries.

3. The All-on-4 typically avoids the need for bone grafting surgery, which is often needed by patients who have been living without teeth and/or with removable dentures for many years. As a result of this, they've lost a lot of bone volume in the jaw to atrophy and therefore require bone grafting so that their jawbones can actually accommodate dental implants. With the All-on-4, the strategic array of implants almost always avoids the need for bone grafting, thereby eliminating the expenses (often tens of thousands of dollars) associated with this invasive procedure.

Cost of New Teeth 4. With only one surgery and one day out of commission, the All-on-4 also allows for indirect savings on the cost of new teeth implants. Patients spend much less time in recovery, which means that they can spend more time being productive and at work.

A Final Note on the Cost of New Teeth

Thanks to the innovation of the All-on-4 dental implant technique, the cost of new teeth implants has become substantially lower and therefore more accessible to a wider audience. For those who need it, most dentists and dental implant facilities in New Jersey offer the support of medical financing companies, so be sure to enquire about that.

Want To Get New Teeth? Cosmetic Dentistry Could Save You The Trouble! PART 2

Welcome to the second half of this article series on the various steps one can take to drastically improving the quality of their smile, short of getting new teeth! In Part 1, a New Jersey dental implants surgeon explained the incredible benefits good oral hygiene, a professional teeth cleaning and frequent visits to the dentist can have upon the appearance of your smile. Good oral health is first and foremost what keeps your teeth and gums looking beautiful!

The next step for those who are essentially in good oral health but who still have discolored teeth would be a professional teeth whitening treatment, which can be done in-office or in the comfort of your own home. Now, in Part 2, we shall look at some of the restorative dental options for people who are simply not happy with their smiles.

Camouflage Imperfection with Dental Veneers

Cosmetic Dentistry"Dental veneers are wonderful cosmetic restorations that can make it look like you have new teeth," says the New Jersey dental implants surgeon. "The concept is the same as covering a battered, stained table with a beautiful table cloth. Veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic material that are custom-made to fit over the outer surface of a tooth. The tooth surface is typically prepared by being slightly ground down or reduced, so that there is space to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. The veneer is then cemented in place, effectively covering up the appearance of surface and deep stains and any imperfections in the actual tooth structure, including chips, cracks, and erosion."

"Veneers not only improve the appearance of a worn and/or stained tooth, making it look new, they also reinforce the strength of a tooth that has been damaged. By covering up cracks, chips and areas of erosion, the tooth structure is effectively protected against infiltration by oral bacteria, thereby rendering it stronger and more likely to withstand decay. For this reason, veneers aren't only cosmetic in benefit."

Completely Restore With Dental Crowns

New Teeth"The last measure that can be taken to restore a damaged and/or decayed tooth is a dental crown, with or without root canal therapy depending upon the recommendations of your dentist," says the dental implants surgeon in New Jersey. "Dental crowns are used to replace the visible portion of teeth that have become so damaged or decayed that a significant portion of it needs to be removed. The crown is custom made to fit the remaining tooth and resume its appearance and function."

A Final Note

"Many celebrities with gorgeous smiles have had many, most or even all of their teeth capped with crowns. Yet in spite of the benefits of these and all of the cosmetic treatments discussed really - aside from teeth whitening - the very best approach to maintaining a beautiful and healthy smile is a good standard of oral hygiene and frequent visits to the dentist and oral hygienist. Nothing can rival the strength, beauty, resilience and comfort of your own biological technology, so make sure you take all the necessary measures to keep it in fantastic lifelong condition. Do this and you won’t be likely to face the need for new teeth!"

Want To Get New Teeth? Cosmetic Dentistry Could Save You The Trouble! PART 1

This two-part article series takes a look at the various cosmetic procedures available for people who feel that their smiles could do with some improvement.

How do you feel when you look in the mirror? Are your eyes automatically drawn to your teeth? Do you find yourself comparing their color to that of your yellow wood dressing table? More importantly, does your concern over the appearance of your teeth have you hiding your smile behind your lips and feeling terribly self-conscious in company?

Dental ProblemSmiling is a fundamental tool for human communication, so if your teeth are preventing you from doing it with confidence, it’s time to learn about what can be done to improve your situation. You don’t necessarily need to get new teeth! Here’s what a Rutherford dental implants surgeon has to say about getting back a confident smile!

When Last Did You Get Your Teeth Professionally Cleaned?

“The very best way to keep your teeth looking beautiful is to keep them healthy,” explains the surgeon. “Nothing can really rival the strength and appearance of healthy teeth, not even dental implants, which are often regarded as the best solution to missing teeth. So, if you are unhappy with the quality of your smile – if your teeth are looking a little yellow and unattractive, the best thing you can do is book an appointment with your dentist and oral hygienist.”

“A thorough teeth cleaning can lift years off your smile by removing deposits of plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) that have accumulated on them. Since plaque - which is essentially legions of oral bacteria, dead cells and other debris - irritates the gums, the removal of it allows them to heal and become nice and pink again. Improving your own efforts at home prevents bacteria from destroying your teeth, thereby keeping them beautiful and pearly white. It’s the easiest way to avoid ever needing to get new teeth!”

Teeth Whitening Treatments

Cosmetic Dentistry“If your teeth are essentially healthy, but still appear an unattractive yellow it’s most likely that they have become stained or discolored through repeated exposure to the tannins and dyes in the foods and beverages you consume. Coffee, tea, dark berries, sodas or anything with dark pigmentation can cause your teeth to become permanently stained,” explains the Rutherford dental implants surgeon.

“If this is the case, then a teeth whitening treatment is the quickest, simplest and cheapest way to get your teeth dazzlingly white again. Most dentists sell professional teeth whitening kits, which you can take home with you and do yourself. These kits typically require that you wear a mouth tray containing a special bleaching gel for an hour or two per day, every day for one or two weeks (or as prescribed by your dentist).”

The Important Thing To Remember Is

An unattractive smile doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to get new teeth. Sometimes, a little cosmetic improvement can make the world of difference! Your first and most beneficial step is to book an appointment with your dentist and find out what they recommend.

Stay Tuned for Part 2

Dental veneers and crowns can also be used to drastically improve the appearance of one’s smile, so stay tuned for the next installment of this two-part article series to find out how!
