Dental Implant Restorations in Hamilton by Dr. Ricciardi
Missing teeth are a detriment to the function and look of a person’s smile. Dental implants are a comprehensive way to replace the roots and crowns of teeth. Dr. Joseph Ricciardi offers dental implants in his Hamilton, NJ dental office. Schedule a consultation to find out how dental implants can restore your missing teeth and improve every aspect of your smile.
While traditional restorations work as replacements for the tops of a tooth, they fail to address the tooth’s root, which is an essential component in the dental structure. Without tooth roots, the jaw experiences resorption, which causes atrophy and leads to signs of premature aging. Dental implants provide a solution for both one's oral health and an aged appearance.
Restorations with Dental Implants in Hamilton, NJ
Titanium implant posts act as natural tooth roots and are placed directly into a patient's jaw. This biocompatible material fuses to the bone and renews the strength of the existing dental structure, and it also provides support for new prosthetics. These are affixed to implant posts to complete treatment.
Dr. Ricciardi offers the following restorations with dental implants:
Single-tooth implants are suitable for restoring teeth at any point in the smile. A tooth lost due to avulsion, decay, or necessary extraction makes room for the post, allowing implant treatment to preserve the position and health of the existing dental structure.
Multi-tooth bridges use two to three dental implants to replace a short row of teeth. Implant-supported bridges rely on support from the jaw bone, which avoids the need to alter existing teeth as traditional bridge treatment requires.
Implant-supported dentures replace an entire arch of teeth using four to eight dental implants. These are placed in optimal positions for stability and strength. Paired with our custom dentures, you regain full dental function with this option.
Completely Replace Your Smile
Dental implants require adequate jaw bone size and density to successfully receive and support the implant posts. We work with a local specialist to coordinate proper preliminary procedures, such as bone grafting, ridge augmentation, sinus lifts, and extraction.
Once your dental implant has been placed by our neighboring periodontist, patients return to Dr. Ricciardi to have their prosthetic restored atop their new tooth root. We utilize a local lab to ensure quality, personalized restorations designed to last a lifetime.
