Dental Implants :
Tooth loss can make it difficult to chew, enunciate, or smile with confidence. Without the help of a dentist, the side effects can worsen.

Benefits of Implants :
With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Because titanium is biocompatible, it fuses with your bone tissue and creates a stable, secure foundation for the long-lasting success of your restored smile.
Implant-supported restorations are the next best thing to natural teeth. They are incredibly stable, allowing patients to eat, laugh, and speak without worrying their dentures will slip out of place.
Prevent Bone Recession
Implants can help maintain your jawbone and facial features. Unlike any other forms of tooth replacement, dental implants prevent the jawbone deterioration that accompanies the long-term absence of tooth roots.
What exactly are dental implants?
A dental implant is a small, threaded titanium post that is surgically embedded in the jawbone to replace lost tooth roots. The implant naturally fuses with your jawbone during a process known as osseointegration to become a solid anchor for your restorations.
When the process of osseointegration is complete, your dentist will place an abutment at the top of your implant. Together, the implant and abutment will support your final restoration. Dental implants and abutments can be used to support crowns, bridges, and dentures, which are all custom-made to replicate the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth.
Missing teeth can compromise the enjoyment of eating your favorite foods, and speaking and laughing with others. If you are ready to restore your smile and your quality of life, dental implants can help. Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace lost tooth roots and provide the ultimate anchor for dentures and crowns. Dr. Michael Bixby can coordinate a dental implants procedure for you at his practice serving Red Bank and the greater Monmouth County area to restore your oral health and the appearance of your smile.
