Tooth loss can significantly affect your quality of life, and adequate dental care is imperative to help you restore your smile. In Wayne, New Jersey, the Avant Garde Dental Arts team knows how tooth loss can impact chewing, eating, speaking and much more. They offer the most advanced dental implants — a treatment to stabilize and secure crowns, dentures or bridges. When dentures aren’t comfortable, don’t fit right, keep falling out or just don’t look good, dental implants are the perfect solution. Book online or call the office today to make your appointment.
Dental implants are artificial, screw-like hardware that mimics your tooth roots and holds the dental prosthesis in place. Dental implants can be used to replace missing teeth and can preserve a jawbone that’s been damaged. For people who are unable to wear dentures, dental implants are an excellent treatment solution that can improve your oral health and speech.
Dental implants don’t deteriorate and decay like your normal teeth. They also allow you to bite down with up to 70% more force, so you can eat all the foods you love.
During the dental implant procedure, your Avant Garde Dental Arts dentist surgically bonds your dental implants to your jawbone. The implants are made from materials that are safe and work alongside your tissue and bone.
The Avant Garde dentists provide the All-on-4® procedure for patients, which involves replacing your full mouth using only four implants that support a full arch of fixed, non-removable artificial teeth. All-on-4 allows you to have a full set of teeth without multiple surgeries and replacements later down the line.
The All-on-4 dental implants procedure can be performed on the upper, lower or both arches at the same time.
The All-on-4 dental implants procedure is typically performed in four steps. First, your Avant Garde Dental Arts dentist conducts a detailed examination of your dental records and current oral health.
Next, CT scans produce 3D images of your teeth and jawbone. The scans include the positions of the replacement teeth using special Sicat software to help your dentist determine where your sinus bone and nerves are located.
In the third step, your dentist creates a computer simulation of the implants to plan your surgery. The Sicat software helps them digitally position the implants into your jawbone at the right location to give you the most support.
The final and most important step is the oral surgery. During surgery, your dentist administers anesthesia and surgically attaches the dental implants to your jawbone.
