There are millions of Americans who are walking around with missing teeth. This problem reaches every community around the country, including right here in Bordentown, NJ.

You can schedule a quick consultation with us by calling the office at 609-298-1124. Before you do that, we have five special facts for you about dental implants.

Dental implants are nearly as strong as natural teeth. Your natural teeth are your best teeth. Until dental implants, there was no real substitute for missing teeth. We used bridges for single missing teeth, but those require a great deal of tooth preparation. Dentures rely on suction and fit, and only have about 50 percent — at best — of the power of natural teeth. Dental implants match the power of natural teeth by about 90.

Dental implants fuse to the jawbone. Dental implants are so secured because they fuse to the jawbone. This is possible because the implants are made from titanium, a material that is biocompatible, which means your body accepts the material and doesn’t try to reject it. Once the implant is placed, it will need to heal around the bone. Once the healing process is complete, the implant is officially part of your body and nearly as strong as the root of a natural tooth.

You can eat whatever you want. Missing teeth make it difficult to eat the food you love, or even those healthy foods like vegetables, fruits, and nuts. People without teeth or even removable dentures often switch to a soft-food diet or unhealthy food options. When you have dental implants, your favorite foods are back on the menu.

You can live longer. This fact sort of goes with the earlier fact. But not only can you enjoy more foods, but dental implants can help you live longer. According to the renowned Mayo Clinic, people without teeth may live 10 years less than people who do have their teeth.

Dental implants have a 98 percent success rate. Placing a dental implant is considered oral surgery, but the success rate is outstanding. At Premier Dental, we are experts are placing dental implants. We make sure you are a candidate for the procedure and access which implant is right for your mouth and smile goals.

What Type of Implants Are Available to You?

Dental implants are revolutionary in that they are extremely versatile. We can use dental implants to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or all of your teeth. If you have dentures and need a little extra support, we can place a few implants around your mouth and then retrofit your dentures. You’re then free to remove the dentures as you see fit.

The patients we’ve helped with dental implants no longer have to worry about the embarrassment of missing teeth or worry about their teeth popping out of their mouth. Dental implants can improve your health and your overall confidence. It’s a win-win.
