Redefined Robert Graffeo, DDS
If you’re serious about replacing your missing teeth, and you want a solution you’ll be able to count on for literally decades to come, then you should definitely consider dental implants. Right now, they are the only treatment available today that restores an entire tooth from root to crown. They not only fill in any gaps within the smile, but they also bring back a person’s bite strength, plus they prevent the bone loss that normally develops after tooth loss. At the dental officeRobert Graffeo, DDS, we combine our dentists decades of experience with the finest materials to help patients rebuild their smiles for a lifetime to come. If you’re ready to have a complete set of teeth again, contact us today to get started with dental implants in Hoboken, NJ.
A dental implant is actually an artificial tooth root. A small titanium post is placed into the jawbone where a tooth used to be, and this provides the foundation for a crown, bridge, or denture. This enables implants to provide a host of benefits you just can’t get with other treatments:
Patients with any number of missing teeth can benefit from dental implants, they just need relatively good oral health and a jawbone strong enough to support the new roots. Once Dr. Graffeo has confirmed this with an exam, he can design an implant treatment to reverse any degree of tooth loss:
Instead of filing down the teeth near the missing one to support a bridge as we would have in the past, Dr. Graffeo can simply attach a dental crown to a single implant root without disturbing someone’s remaining teeth.
Traditional prosthetics like bridges and partial dentures can be secured within the mouth using a minimal number of implants. Compared to their removable counterparts, these teeth are much more stable and can be trusted to last longer as well.
For extensive tooth loss, all it takes is just four to six implants placed strategically along the jawbone to provide the base for a full denture. Implant dentures not only fit more comfortably than regular ones, but they also allow for a much stronger bite.
Most dental offices force their implant patients to visit multiple doctors in order to have the treatment completed, adding time, stress, and expense to the process. At our dental office, we turn this approach on its head by bringing the doctors to you. Dr. Graffeo works with a team of in-house specialists, including a prosthodontist and periodontist so patients can have their implants placed and restored right here in our Hoboken dental office. From your first consultation all the way until you leave with your new smile, you’ll be able to work with the same dentist and team that you trust.
In order to be as effective as possible, every dental implant treatment has to be personalized based on a patient’s unique situation. Because of this, the cost of the procedure is always different from person to person. While implants tend to be more expensive than other options, they are intended to last for decades, and they often help patients save tremendously in the long run. Over the life expectancy of a single implant, a patient would have to replace their regular bridge or denture multiple times, easily spending more than the cost of the implant.
