New Providence Dental Implants
If you’re suffering from tooth loss, dental implants can help restore and strengthen your smile. Dental implants are custom made to look and feel like your natural teeth, and if cared for properly, they can last a lifetime. Schedule a consultation with New Providence dentist, Dr. Herko, to see if this permanent solution for missing teeth is right for you.
How Dental Implants Work
Once Dr. Herko has determined that your gums and jaw are healthy enough to support a dental implant, the process begins with a surgical procedure to place the post into your gum and jawbone. Your mouth is then given time to heal, allowing the gum and jaw to fuse to the post and creating an artificial root for your new tooth. The healing process usually takes around 12 weeks. When you are fully healed, a permanent, custom crown is attached to the post with an abutment. The crown will replicate the color, shape, and size of your natural tooth and look seamless in your smile.
