If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may well be thinking about getting dental implants. At our Stahl Dental Studio dental practice, patients can get dental implants in Fair Lawn from our top-notch dentist, Dr. Jerry Stahl; however, it is important that patients are first determined to be excellent candidates for the dental implant procedure.
If a patient wants to get dental implants in Fair Lawn to replace their missing teeth, it is important that they are excellent candidates for the procedure. If a person is not a good candidate for getting dental implants, the dental implant procedure may fail. If a person gets dental implants placed into the jawbone, but their jawbone is not thick enough or healthy enough to withstand the dental implant surgery, the treatment will not be effective. The reason that dental implant roots are such a secure base for new teeth is because the dental implants have firmly fused to the jawbone. However, if the jawbone is not healthy, this fusion process will not be able to occur, and the dental implant will never become stable. Our dentist will also want to review your medical history to make sure that you do not have a medical condition that will interfere with your jawbone’s ability to heal from the dental implant surgery. Once it is found that you are a good candidate for getting dental implants, our dentist will be able to proceed with the dental implant treatment process. At this point, one or several dental implant roots will be surgically inserted into your jawbone. The entire dental implant process will take several months, as the jawbone can take many months to heal, and for the fusion process to complete. Once our dentist determines that the healing period has ended, a beautiful porcelain crown will be created and be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant root. At this point, your dental implants will be complete.
