Complete Dental Care in North Bergen, NJ
Welcome to Renaissance Dental Group
Implant DenturesDentures have long been a go-to solution for replacing missing teeth, but traditional dentures come with limitations. We offer a modern and effective alternative – implant-supported dentures. These dentures not only restore your smile and chewing ability but also address the issue of bone loss in the jaw.
How Implant-Retained Dentures WorkUnlike traditional dentures that rest on the gumline, implant-retained dentures are secured by metal posts surgically inserted into the jawbone. These posts, through osseointegration, naturally fuse with the jaw, providing a stable foundation for the dentures. Depending on your preference, the implants can be permanently fixed or removable.
Candidates for Implant-Retained DenturesThe success of implant-retained dentures hinges on your oral health. Our dentist in Cliffside Park will evaluate your mouth and if necessary, perform bone grafts to ensure sufficient jaw height for osseointegration. Smoking can disrupt the healing process, making it imperative to quit before and after the surgery.
Process for Getting Implant-Retained DenturesAfter an initial consultation, our experienced dentist, Dr. Shulman, will schedule the implant placement surgery. The number of implants required depends on the teeth to be replaced, typically ranging from four to eight. The process involves placing the implants, allowing time for healing, and then securing the dentures.
Benefits of Implant-Retained DenturesImplant-retained dentures provide numerous benefits, including preventing bone loss, stability without slipping, comparable chewing power to natural teeth, durability with proper maintenance, and a natural-looking smile that sits below the gumline.
All-On-4For those seeking a comprehensive solution to replace an entire row of teeth, All-On-4 dentures offer a remarkable option with just four strategically placed implants. This innovative approach minimizes recovery time and delivers strong, beautiful implant-retained dentures.
How Do All-On-4 Implants Work?All-On-4 involves placing four implant posts, with the back implants set at a 45-degree angle to maximize contact with areas of higher bone density. This allows for immediate support of temporary dentures without the need for additional procedures like bone grafts.
Am I A Candidate for All-On-4 Implants?All-On-4 is ideal for those needing a full arch replacement due to extensive tooth loss or extractions. Dr. Shulman will assess your oral health, considering factors like gum disease and smoking habits. Even with existing jawbone loss, All-On-4 implants may still be a viable option.
Benefits of All-On-4 ImplantsAll-On-4 offers advantages such as improved appearance, the ability to enjoy a varied diet, faster results with fewer implants, and easy maintenance. Compared to traditional methods requiring more implants and potential bone grafts, All-On-4 simplifies the process, reducing healing time.
Dental Implant SalvageWhile dental implants have a high success rate, there is a small risk of failure. Here at Renaissance Dental Group, we specialize in dental implant salvage, addressing the causes of failure and working to save your smile.
Why Do Dental Implants Fail?Implant failure can result from peri-implantitis, an infection around the implant leading to bone breakdown. Smoking and diabetes can increase the risk by impeding proper healing. Recognizing symptoms like pain, inflamed gums, and difficulty chewing is crucial for prompt intervention.
Symptoms of Failed Dental ImplantsSigns of implant failure include radiating pain, red or inflamed gums, difficulty chewing, and any movement of the implant post. Early and late failures present distinct symptoms, emphasizing the importance of immediate attention to any unusual discomfort.
How Does Dental Implant Salvage Work?Dental implant salvage involves a thorough examination, including X-rays, to determine the cause. Treatment varies based on the issue; antibiotics and improved oral hygiene may address infections, while advanced procedures like bone grafting may be necessary for significant bone loss. Dr. Shulman will tailor a treatment plan to restore oral health, potentially allowing for the placement of a new implant once the mouth is healthy.
Yes, implant-retained dentures provide significantly more stability than traditional dentures. Traditional dentures rely on adhesives and the natural suction of the gums, which can lead to slippage and discomfort. Implant-retained dentures, secured by surgically placed implants, offer a secure and stable foundation, preventing slipping and providing enhanced chewing power. The implants also stimulate the jawbone, preventing the bone loss commonly associated with traditional dentures.
The All-On-4 implant procedure typically takes a few hours per arch. It is an excellent option for individuals who need to replace an entire row of teeth due to extensive tooth loss or extractions. All-On-4 minimizes the number of implants required by strategically placing four implants to support a full set of dentures. While suitability depends on individual factors such as oral health and bone density, All-On-4 often provides a faster and more efficient solution compared to traditional implant methods.
If you suspect your dental implants may be failing, it’s crucial to schedule an appointment with our experienced dentist, Dr. Shulman, as soon as possible. Signs of implant failure include persistent pain, inflamed gums, difficulty chewing, and any movement of the implant post. Early intervention is key to addressing potential issues.
During the consultation, Dr. Shulman will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays, to determine the cause of the problem. Depending on the issue, salvage procedures may be employed, ranging from antibiotics and improved oral hygiene to advanced techniques like bone grafting. Prompt attention to implant concerns increases the likelihood of successful salvage and restoration of your smile.
