The loss of one or more natural teeth can negatively affect a person’s quality of life in various ways, from their sense of self-confidence to their ability to speak and eat properly. Here in Red Bank, Dr. Peter Silver can provide state-of-the-art, biocompatible replacements that are virtually indistinguishable from the original structure: dental implants. Implant succeed where other, more traditional tooth replacements fall short because they replicate the ENTIRE natural tooth, including the root hidden beneath the gum line. The final result is durable, aesthetically pleasing, and long-lasting. If you’re ready to schedule a consultation, contact The Jazz Dentist today.
Mini dental implants are an excellent reconstructive option for patients who may not have the proper jawbone density to support traditional implants. Their thinner shape allows for faster healing and more preservation of healthy, natural tissue, which is ideal for Dr. Silver’s holistic approach. Mini dental implants are available for eligible candidates, with benefits including quicker restorations, less drilling (even compared to fillings!) and shorter recovery time.
Dental implants replace missing or damaged natural teeth, which means they must be surgically inserted into the patient’s jawbone. Dental implants gradually form a bond with surrounding tissue and bone, creating a strong and stable foundation. Once the dental implant has been placed, the patient will receive the finishing touch – a high-quality, custom-made dental restoration. For eligible patients, start-to-finish mini dental implants are available in as little as one appointment.
One of the benefits of dental implants is their versatility – they can be used to replace a single tooth or an entire arch, depending on the patient’s personal needs. If Dr. Silver is rebuilding one tooth, a metal-free, implant-retained crown is the ideal choice. Alternatively, implant-retained bridges can replicate several teeth in a row. We can even anchor a new or existing denture to a small number of strategically placed implants. As long as the patient’s new “teeth” are cared for properly with regular maintenance and professional checkups, they can last for several decades or even the rest of their life.
