Dental implants are more like your natural teeth than many other dental restorations. When you need to replace a tooth, Sirin Ocharoen, DMD, of Sirinity Smiles in Florham Park, New Jersey, often recommends custom dental implants to restore your smile in both form and function. As a highly skilled family and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ocharoen assesses your oral health and recommends implants whenever possible. If you’ve lost a tooth to decay or injury, call or request an appointment online.
A dental implant is a custom-made artificial tooth that looks and functions just like a natural tooth. Like natural teeth, dental implants have a “root” made from a titanium screw that integrates into your jawbone. This provides stability for the top part of the implant, or the crown of the tooth.
Dental implants become a permanent part of your mouth, so you can eat and talk with ease. Replacing a tooth or several teeth with implants provides a dependable alternative to dentures or bridgework that doesn’t fit well.
If you have one or more missing teeth, and you’re in good overall health, you may be an excellent candidate for dental implant surgery. Dr. Ocharoen assesses your health and closely examines your mouth to determine if dental implants are a good choice for you. If your jawbone is fully mature and healthy enough to secure the titanium root of a new implant, they may work well.
