What are Dental Implants?
Natural-looking dental implants can be used to replace missing or damaged teeth.
Dental implants are the most modern, practical, and cost-effective way to replace missing or damaged natural teeth. Implant-Supported Crowns look and feel like natural teeth. They give you a perfect smile and better dental health.
We offer Dental Implant Supported Dentures for individuals who have broken teeth or have lost multiple teeth. These titanium-based artificial tooth roots are implanted into the jaw to support the replacement tooth. We will next take a cast of your teeth and send it to a laboratory, where skilled experts will use the impression to create a custom-made crown for your implant.
We also have 3D Cone Beam Diagnostic Technology, which helps us understand your bone mass better. You should only receive a dental implant after first having a 3D picture created!
What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?
- Surrounding teeth do not support dental implants.
- Dental implants are long-lasting and stable.
- They will not fall out like dentures.
- They keep your other teeth from shifting as a result of tooth loss.
- Dental implants help to reduce bone loss in the jaw.
Is getting a dental implant painful?
Modern technology, such as CT scanning and sedation dentistry, helps to reduce the discomfort associated with having dental implants. Our staff has been trained and certified to provide sedation dentistry. This results in a very pain-free and easy process, regardless of the quantity of dentistry required.
Our patients report very minimal discomfort during and after treatment.
How should I go about selecting a dental implant specialist?
Selecting a dentist who has received advanced training in Implant Dentistry and has several years of expertise in placing and recovering dental implants is critical.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
A good candidate for dental implants will have healthy gums and sufficient jawbone to support the implant. If the bone in your jaw is insufficient (too thin or soft) to effectively anchor and sustain an implant, a Bone Grafting operation may be required before the implant can be placed.
A Sinus Lift may also be required if your upper jaw has an insufficient bone height or if sinuses are too close together.
Using a 3D Cone Beam CT Scan, your implant specialist can establish if you are a good candidate for dental implants. This form of x-ray will allow our experts to precisely and thoroughly assess your existing jaw architecture, which directly affects dental implant placement. This knowledge is critical to the success of dental implant treatment.
Do not have any dental professional install an implant without a 3D Cone Beam CT Scan!
The Dental Implant Treatment
The following is the implant placing procedure:
- Our dental implant surgeon surgically inserts the titanium implant into the jawbone. They will place the dental implants in the best possible site using the information from the 3D Cone Beam CT Scan and 3D software.
- Healing duration can range from a few weeks to a few months. During this time, the titanium implant will osseointegrate with your natural jaw bone. This will provide a solid foundation for the crown, which will be implanted after the healing procedure.
- An abutment is put on top of your gum line once the osseointegration procedure is complete and the implant has completely fused to your jawbone. When the time comes, the crown will be fastened to this.
- To complete the process, a single crown, an implant-supported bridge, or a denture is affixed to the abutment in the last phase.
Types of Implants that we offer
We use the highest quality, American-made implants in our procedures. There are several different options:
- Single Implant - Tooth Replacement: This is ideal for missing a single tooth. A single implant is placed, and a crown restoration is attached to the implant to replace the missing tooth. This is a full crown that is attached, not a tooth cap like what is normally used to cover a damaged tooth. A dental implant, if properly maintained, can last a lifetime. It is a much more reliable option than a bridge or flipper.
- Multiple Implants - Teeth Replacement: If you are missing more than one tooth but still has healthy gums and surrounding teeth, a multiple implant solution may be your best option. Two fixtures are implanted, and the crowns or fixed bridges are attached.
- All-on-4 and All-on-6: We can replace an entire arch using as few as four dental implants! Depending on each patient's jaw, we customize the number of implants to be placed. The implants are placed around your dental arch, with two angled at the back of your jaw for stability. A restoration (bridge or denture) is then attached. This gives you the look and function of a full arch of teeth without using an implant for every missing tooth.
- Implant-Supported Dentures: Dental implants can give you a superior level of support and stability when used with dentures. Implant-supported dentures use a few implants to keep your denture in place. A bar runs from one implant to the others and attaches to the back of the denture to keep it in place. This eliminates the need for messy denture adhesives and restores the full look of your smile. You can finally eat the food you want to eat!
- Implant-Retained Dentures – These are similar to implant-supported dentures in that they use dental implants to secure dentures but are still removable. The implants have ball fixtures on top of them, and the denture can snap into them.
Cost of Dental Implants
The Price of Dental Implants in New Jersey
Did you know? Dental implant costs can be spread out over time with convenient payment plans. Many patients mistakenly think they will need to pay the entire fee up front. The reality is that the entire dental implant procedure can take some time and involve several steps. That means that you will have the ability to pay for each procedure as it is completed.
The Cost of Dental Implants is a LIFETIME Investment in YOU
Dental Implants are a LIFETIME investment in your health as well as your appearance. A full set of teeth makes eating a pleasure again, making eating a balanced, healthy diet easier. A full set of teeth also preserves the contours of the face, keeping you from looking old before your time.
Dental implants may seem expensive, especially compared to tooth replacement methods like dentures and bridges. However, those methods typically must be repaired or replaced every 5 to 10 years. The cost of that regular maintenance can eventually equal the cost of implants. With regular brushing and flossing, the implant screw can last a lifetime, assuming you get regular dental check-ups every six months.
Dental implants also prevent your jawbone from deteriorating due to missing teeth. Dentures and bridges can’t do that. As your jaw deteriorates, your face shape can change. You’ll start to look older, and your existing teeth will become loose. The jawbone provides the structure that holds your teeth’s roots in place. Once it’s gone, you’ll lose your other teeth as well.
How can I determine what the EXACT costs of my implants will be?
A thorough examination can only determine the exact price of dental implants by our dentist. Each case can be slightly different, and each patient's needs can differ. We will use our state-of-the-art technology and 3D Diagnostic X-Rays to determine your needs. Our dentist will use the 3D scan image to determine the density of the bone and to see whether you’re a candidate for an immediate implant or if some additional grafting will be needed prior to implant placement.

Dental Implant Cost – Dental Insurance
Great News! If you have traditional dental insurance, it will likely cover some of the costs of dental implants.
Traditional insurance is welcome and accepted at our practice. As a courtesy, we will gladly file insurance claims on your behalf. Dental insurance generally does not cover all dental implant expenses. Dental insurance is designed to help reduce your out-of-pocket dental costs, and there will be some out-of-pocket expenses that you will be expected to pay at the time of service. Luckily, we also offer financing options (below).
Dental Implant Cost – Convenient Financing Options
First, check with your dental insurance carrier to see what portion, if any, of dental implants they cover. Third-party healthcare financing can be used to cover your out-of-pocket expenses. Third-party healthcare financing can work in several different ways. While all are based on your credit, some require down payments while others do not. The terms for how long you can extend your payments can also vary. Regardless of your financial situation, there may very well be a financing option that will work for you! We are pleased to offer several different financing options depending on your needs.

Full Mouth Dental Implant Dentures
Advantages of Full Mouth Denture Implants
You can eat the foods you want to eat (confidently).
You can smile without fear of your teeth falling out.
You can talk without using your tongue to hold in your teeth!
Traditional dentures are often ill-fitting and lack stability, cause irritation to the gums, and may make it difficult to eat certain foods. Patients who have received implant-supported dentures from us often report feeling like they have their natural teeth again. They report being able to eat all foods and enjoy smiling confidently. Read our patient testimonials.
All-on-4 and All-on-6
We can replace an entire arch using as few as four dental implants! The implants are placed around your dental arch, with two angled at the back of your jaw for stability. A restoration (bridge or denture) is then attached. This gives you the look and function of an entire arch of teeth without using an implant for every missing tooth.
Removable Denture Implants
Removable supported dentures can be removed but are far more secure than those without the support of dental implants.
Removable supported dentures can be secured with as few as four implants. With more implants, the denture becomes more secure. After a complete examination, we will provide you with the best teeth replacement options for your unique needs.
Fixed Denture Implants
Fixed dentures permanently replace a complete set of teeth and prevent bone loss. Because of their strength, dental implants are the ideal anchor for dentures. Dentures will never become loose or slip when they are attached to implants.
Implant Secured Partial Fixed Denture
A bridge (the partial fixed denture) replaces one or several missing teeth. The bridge is secured to the remaining tooth or teeth without an implant. In some instances, this can cause the loosening of the anchoring teeth (abutment). With an implant, the bridge (the partial fixed denture) is not reliant on surrounding teeth.
Whether you are considering a full set of dentures or a partial denture (or bridge), implant-supported dentures provide strength and durability for a long-lasting, functional, beautiful smile.
Bone Grafting and Buildup
Some people do not have enough healthy natural bone to support dental implants. Natural bone insufficiency can be caused by:
- Gum disease
- Tooth development defects
- Wearing dentures long term
- An injury to the face or trauma
- Spaces left empty in the mouth after teeth are removed
- Dental procedures where efforts were not made to restore natural bone
In these cases a Bone Graft will need to take place before the implant can be surgically inserted. In this procedure bone material, either from your own body or a cadaver, is filled into the area of your jaw where the implant will eventually be placed. An incision is made in your gum to accomplish this. The site is then stitched up and may be covered with a thin membrane during the healing process, which can take from 3 to 6 months. During this time your dentist may create a “flipper” tooth to wear in your mouth as you heal. This is a removable denture made of acrylic that is intended to fill in the gap until it is time to place the implant. There are other temporary options for tooth replacement during the healing process, as well. Be sure to discuss them all with your dental implant specialist.
Sinus Lift Procedure
A Sinus Lift is surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane must be lifted or moved upward. This procedure is done when there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw for dental implants to be places. A Sinus Lift will also be done in cases where the sinuses are too close to the jaw for dental implants to be places.
There are several other reasons why a Sinus Lift is needed:
- If you have lost teeth in your upper jaw and your jaw does not have enough bone to support dental implants.
- Bone loss caused due to periodontal (gum) disease.
- Tooth loss may lead to bone loss. The bone resorbs once teeth are gone, if you have been missing teeth for a long time there may not be enough bone left to place dental implants.
- The maxillary sinus may be too close to the upper jaw for dental implants to be placed. The shape and size of sinus varies from person to person. Age may cause sinus to get larger also.
Prior to the Sinus Lift Procedure, the doctor will require a cone-bean CT scan before your Sinus Lift so the doctor can study the jaw and sinus. We use cone-beam CT scans to accurately measure the height and width of of your existing bone.
After the Sinus Lift procedure there will be some swelling in the area. There may be some minor bleeding. Do not blow your nose or sneeze forcefully while healing. We will ask that you return to the office within 7 to 10 days to evaluate the surgical site and remove stitches if they do not dissolve on their own. After the Sinus Lift procedure it will take a few months for healing. Once healing is complete, dental implants may be placed four to nine months.
3D Diagnostic X-Rays
3D Cone Beam X-Rays
To continue offering our patients the newest and safest technology, our dental office has implemented cone beam 3D diagnostic technology. In many ways, this technology surpasses traditional two-dimensional technology, such as digital X-rays and classic film. The benefits of cone beam 3D technology include the following:
- More accurate images
- Less exposure to harmful radiation
- Ability to comprehensively evaluate all bony anatomy
- More cost-effective for both the patient and the dentist
- Better patient understanding of their dental health
- Images are taken in an open environment, increasing patient comfort
With cone beam 3D imaging, we can be more precise in diagnosing dental problems, including conditions that are more difficult to diagnose with traditional X-rays. Cone beam 3D diagnostic imaging also helps our dentists predictably and successfully place dental implants. We can utilize cone beam 3D imaging to assist in planning and completing several types of treatment, including dental implants, root canal treatment, and more.
