When you have decayed or missing teeth, everyday activities like eating, speaking, and socializing become frustrating and embarrassing. Today’s premier option for replacing a single decayed tooth, multiple missing teeth, or even a full set of missing teeth—dental implants—can enable you to live life again with unprecedented confidence. Dental implants include a screw-like post made of biocompatible titanium that acts as the tooth root, a crown that looks like a completely natural tooth, and an abutment that attaches the two components. Few people will be able to tell that you have dental implants; all they’ll see is an amazing, bright, self-assured smile.
Our dental and periodontal team has an exceptional record of accurate dental implant replacement and custom restorations, due to both our extensive training and our GuidedSMILE CHROME guided surgery technology. Our revolutionary process starts with digital imaging of your mouth. From this we create a precise, customized blueprint of your new teeth to send to our lab and to show you. You’ll be able to see a simulation of what your finished smile will look like before we even get started! By doing this before your actual implant placement, and by using custom-fabricated guides, we can achieve quicker, more accurate results and see your custom, new smile in fewer appointments!
At Downtown Dental Arts of Montclair, we manage every facet of your dental implant treatment right in our one Montclair, NJ office. If you need any tooth extractions before you can receive dental implants, our skilled clinicians can generally perform them during the same visit as your dental implant placement. If missing teeth have caused you to lose a significant amount of bone in your jaw, your jawbone will need to be built back up to successfully support dental implants. With bone grafting, we place new bone tissue in the area of the decayed jawbone. This will eventually become a permanent part of your jaw, allowing us to perform your dental implant restoration. To make your experience comfortable and stress-free, we provide IV sedation and local anesthetic for these and other procedures.
With a multi-specialty team like ours, we’re also able to collaborate on your treatment and not only place but restore your dental implants, letting you skip a separate appointment. As a board-certified periodontist, Dr. Sophia Chadda specializes in the placement of dental implants and as a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Konstantine Trichas offers the cosmetic skill to restore your implants with the crowns and bridges you need for a seamless smile.
