Losing a tooth to decay or damage can be a devastating blow, both to one’s oral health and their self-confidence. It can be difficult to even leave the house, much less smile with confidence when you’re suffering an unsightly gap, not to mention all the potential oral health problems that can occur because of it, including a heightened risk of gum disease, severe shifting of the other teeth, and even additional tooth loss. Here at Resnick and Rosenfeld, DDS, we want to provide patients in Edison, NJ and beyond with a tooth replacement solution that they can feel proud of – one’s that comfortable, steady, and blends in seamlessly with their natural smile. That’s why we offer dental implants, a relatively new, revolutionary procedure that will help you regain both your confidence and your quality of life.
What sets dental implants apart from other tooth replacement methods?
While other restorative methods such as dentures and bridges only rest atop the gums and replace the crowns of missing teeth, dental implants are the only solution that effectively replicates the entire structure, including the root. This helps keep the jawbone from deteriorating and maintain the health of your mouth as a whole!
Dr. Resnick and Dr. Rosenfeld both work hard to stay up-to-date with all the changes the rapidly growing field of implant dentistry goes through, and they maintain relationships with excellent oral surgeons who can masterfully carry out the first step of the dental implant procedure – the surgical placement of a titanium rod, which will serve as the “root” of the new tooth. Then, once your jaw has had an appropriate time to heal from the procedure, you’ll return to our office where we’ll carefully place your custom-made crown and send you off with a beautiful, revitalized smile!
