If you’re missing teeth tempt you to feel self-conscious, or you find that it’s more difficult to eat and speak and the thought of dentures sound unappealing, there are other options. One excellent choice is dental implants.

Dental implants function exactly like strong, healthy natural teeth. They are made up of crowns and titanium posts which are carefully implanted into your jaw.

Gradually, the titanium post integrates with the surrounding tissue of the jawbone, tapering the space around it and strengthening its bond so that your implant can last a lifetime. This process is called osseointegration, which literally means “combines with the bone.” This process is just one of the reasons why dental implants are among the largest innovations in dentistry in the past 4 decades.

Dental implants can be customized to the exact qualifications of your mouth, no matter whether it is the size, shape, color or form of the teeth.

It is important to take care of your missing teeth soon. If you delay for too long, your bite pattern may gradually shift out of position. This may also create a sunken appearance in the face and diminish your jaw strength.

If you would like an implant, speak with Dr. Richard J. Gawarzewski as soon as possible. You can book a consultation with Richard J. Gawarzewski DMD, PA in Berlin, New Jersey by ringing 856-767-0053.
