Are Dental Implants

Right for You?

You don’t have to live with missing teeth. If you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, the Rothenberg Dental Group can help with dental implants.
Missing teeth is more than just a cosmetic problem. The gaps from missing teeth can cause the occlusion (bite) to shift, adding to more complicated and costly issues down the road. Replacing missing teeth with implants where applicable is an ideal way to restore dental health.

What Are Dental Implants?

One of the biggest breakthroughs in modern dentistry, dental implants are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw. Replacement teeth fit snugly on top of the implant, serving as a powerful anchor. The end result: one of the most reliable and most popular long-term solutions for restoring missing teeth.

Why Choose The Rothenberg Dental Group for Dental Implants

The Rothenberg Dental Group has extensive experience with dental implants. We start by conducting a thorough examination of your mouth and jawbone to see if you’re a candidate for implants. Your jawbone and gums must be healthy and strong enough to receive the implants.

Once the implants are placed, there will be a period of time for the implant to heal (integrate) into the bone it was placed into. From here, the process can be as simple as an impression to fabricate the missing tooth. When multiple units are being restored, a series of painless impressions and try-ins are utilized to replace the missing units. The process is painless and moves quickly.

Dental implants don’t decay like natural teeth. That means they can’t get cavities! However, they can still get bone loss and gum disease, so you still need to brush, floss, and care for it like your other teeth. Regular professional cleanings are also essential.

Frequently Asked Questions

about Dental Implants

Q: When two teeth next to each other need to be replaced, is it smart to get just one implant, attach it to a natural tooth, and make a bridge?

A: While that can be done, we don’t recommend it. Here’s why: Generally, it’s preferable to avoid attaching implants to natural teeth. What works better is attaching implants to each other. This improves their strength, and often achieves positive results. While it may be more expensive short-term, in the long term it far increases the chance of success.

Q: Can missing upper back teeth affect sinuses?

A: Yes. The evidence is clear that people with upper back teeth missing for long periods of time frequently experience increased downward growth of the maxillary sinus. That means that patients who are thinking of getting implants for upper back teeth may need a sinus elevation procedure to allow room for placement of the implants.

Q: If someone has lost a lot of jawbone as a result of years of wearing dentures, are implants still an option?

A: In most cases, yes. New technology advancements in the field of Dental Prosthetics means there are more types of implants designed to accommodate multiple oral problems. But we encourage anyone thinking of implants after years of dentures to act quickly. The sooner the problems are corrected, the more treatment options are available.

Q: If someone has lost a lot of jawbone as a result of years of wearing dentures, are implants still an option?

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms listed below, the Rothenberg Dental Group can help remedy with dental implants: - Excessive use of denture adhesives - Ability to chew only soft food - Constant mouth sores - Unpleasant appearance - Uncomfortable bite position

Q: Do people without upper or lower teeth need implants for every tooth they’re replacing?

A: No. The number of implants needed to provide support depends on the type of implants being considered, and the type of teeth (removable or nonremovable) that will be attached to implants. The Rothenberg Dental Group can perform a thorough oral exam with panoramic X-ray to determine what is needed. In most cases, additional X-rays or CT Scans are needed.

Q: If a tooth breaks after a root canal, can it be replaced with an implant?

A: Teeth with root canals tend to be more brittle, which can lead to fractures. In the past, the best remedy was to remove the tooth, and file down the adjacent teeth to make a bridge, i.e. caps on the adjacent teeth and a dummy tooth in between. Sometimes, this is still the most viable option. However, in many cases an implant can replace the fractured tooth, meaning no teeth need to be ground down at all.
