Indistinguishable From Your Own Teeth

Dental implants are true tooth replacements — root, crown, and all — so they are lifelike in function as well as appearance. Dental implants also keep your jaw bone healthy and maintain the harmony of your facial structure because they stimulate the bone in your jaw like natural teeth when you chew. Dental implants are incredibly versatile, with the ability to replace a single tooth or even an entire arch of teeth.

A single dental implant is a three-part tooth replacement solution that consists of:

Dental Implant Treatment

Patients who have received dental implants experience a lifelike tooth restoration with the functional abilities of natural teeth, and the oral health benefits that are a result of the natural fusion of the implant with the jaw bone, preventing jaw bone atrophy. Implants are full tooth replacements — root and all — and like natural teeth, they are anchored in your jaw for a completely stable restoration that can last a lifetime with proper care. It’s hard to beat a tooth replacement solution that looks good, feels good, and is good for your oral health!

No matter which tooth replacement solution is determined to be the best for your condition and needs, our team’s priority is to deliver patient-centered care that improves our patients’ overall health, oral health, and well-being. Drs. Friedman and Schulhof perform dental implants and dental implant-based restorations in the safety of our comfortable surgical suites at our practice in Teaneck, NJ, where attentive and compassionate clinical staff will continuously monitor you during your treatment.

Hear From Dental Implant Patients Like You

When patients have a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, self-esteem can suffer, and it can be harder to eat the foods you love or smile with confidence. Oral health problems can occur from missing teeth as well, such as your remaining teeth moving out of alignment and the onset of progressive jaw bone atrophy, which can cause you to appear older than you are. Because dental implants solve these problems and have many other incredible benefits, they are the preferred tooth restoration solution for broken, failing, or missing teeth. You can learn more about dental implants by watching the patient videos below. These stories will help you understand what to expect when you come in for your placement procedure.

What Are My Tooth Replacement Options?

Dr. Friedman, Dr. Schulhof, and Dr. Montazem offer multiple tooth replacement solutions at our practice, including precision-placed dental implants and other more traditional solutions like fixed bridges and dentures. When you have your consultation at Iconic Implant Institute, you and your oral surgeon will discover which solution is optimal for your condition and requirements. Some of the most common tooth replacement options include:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are new replacement teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth and can last a lifetime with proper oral care and regular dental appointments. With dental implants, patients can eat smile, speak, and laugh again with complete confidence.

dental bridge model

Bridges (Tooth-Supported)

Tooth-supported bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth that are next to each other. This solution bridges the gap created in the dental arch when teeth are missing. Bridges are fixed in your mouth, nonremovable, and secure. They will, however, require replacement every few years. Because the bridge is permanently cemented in place using the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth/teeth, your dentist will need to reshape the teeth that are used to anchor the bridge.

dentures mode

Full or Partial Dentures

Full or partial dentures are a common and relatively low-cost solution for missing teeth. Dentures typically last a few years, though they will eventually need to be replaced. Many people find that dentures are an acceptable solution, but others find them to be uncomfortable and are self-conscious about their tendency to slip or click during chewing or speaking.

Full-Arch Restoration

When patients need a permanent replacement for multiple missing teeth in one or both of their arches, there is a full-arch replacement solution that offers patients new, permanent, and very lifelike teeth using as few as four dental implants.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Unlike other tooth replacement options such as dentures, implants won’t slip around in your mouth or make clicking sounds when you talk, eat, or laugh.

Some of the key benefits of dental implants include:

From teeth cleanings to x-rays and oral cancer screenings we’re the hub for all your preventive dentistry care. Each visit will be tailored to your unique needs while always offering the highest level of care. Routine visits should be maintained twice a year in order to catch early signs of dental decay and disease and prevent them altogether.

With implants, you can enjoy your life as if you never had any missing teeth.

Improved self-confidence is a common side effect of receiving dental implants. Our patients report that they often forget they even have a tooth restoration — and that no one else can tell either!

Comfortably and confidently enjoy eating your favorite foods again.

Dental implants replace the entire tooth, including the root, so they stimulate the jaw bone to keep bone loss at bay, just like natural teeth do.

Dental implants can replace one or multiple missing teeth or even an entire arch of teeth.

With advances in bone and soft tissue grafting techniques, most of our patients can have a successful dental implant placement.

Iconic Implant Institiute’s oral surgeons perform a variety of bone grafting and soft tissue grafting techniques to allow successful dental implant placement for almost everyone — even our patients with extensive jaw bone atrophy due to extended tooth loss. If our patients are healthy enough to have a standard tooth extraction, dental implants are usually an option for them at our practice. We offer the full scope of oral surgery and dental implant restoration options to restore smiles. If you are interested in dental implants, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced oral surgeons. We look forward to providing you with the very best results and an excellent patient experience!

Avoid Making Costly Mistakes!

Dental implants are a lifetime investment in your health, function, and quality of life. Avoid the common mistakes people make when considering implants by following our recommendations.

The Dental Implant Process

Drs. Friedman, Schulhof, and Montazem have many years of training and experience placing dental implants with outstanding long-term results. As a matter of fact, they teach the implant course for the implant manufacturer in order train other practitioners. We perform implant placement surgery in the comfort of our Teaneck, NJ, practice, with the assistance of a highly skilled surgical team, and we are qualified to administer several kinds of in-office anesthesia, including IV sedation. A single implant placement at our practice will take between 30 and 60 minutes. Multiple implants can take from one to three hours. Since every case is different, and you are receiving personalized care at our practice, the amount of time that your dental implant procedure will take is going to vary based on the specifics of your treatment plan.

Step 1: Consultation

During this appointment, you will have a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health condition. You will work closely with your oral surgeon to develop a treatment plan based on your condition and goals, and we may take detailed diagnostic images. Your anesthesia options will be discussed in detail as well.

Step 2: Day of surgery

Talks about Surgical Guides and Navigation
Before your surgery begins, we will administer the anesthesia that you chose during your consultation so that you will not feel any discomfort during your procedure. Your oral surgeon will make a small incision in your gum tissue where he will place your implant, and the implant post will be inserted with precision into your jaw bone. He will then close the surgical site with dissolvable sutures (stitches). After the procedure, and if you opt for conscious sedation, you will have time to rest before your responsible driver takes you home to begin your recovery.

Step 3: Recovery period

As soon as your procedure is over, you are in the recovery and healing period. This healing time lasts until your implant has successfully fused with your jaw bone so that your tooth restoration is stable and permanent. Our patients are usually back to their regular activity level after just a couple of days; however, it takes a few months longer for the fusion of the implant with the jaw bone to be complete. Your healing time depends on the condition of your jaw bone, your overall health, your body’s healing capabilities, and other factors. Your doctor will cover these details with you before you have your procedure.

To learn more about the placement of dental implants at our Teaneck, NJ, practice, and to find out if dental implants are the best solution for your condition, budget, and oral health goals, please feel free to call the office to schedule a consultation with one of our oral surgeons. We look forward to meeting with you to discuss how we can help get you smiling again.

The Value Of Dental Implants

Dental implants change people’s lives for the better. They are nearly indistinguishable from natural teeth in both form and function and protect the health of your jaw and facial structure for the long-term. Implants can also last a lifetime if cared for well, just as you would your natural teeth, and allow patients to smile, eat, and laugh with complete confidence as if they’d never lost any teeth. More traditional tooth restorations must be replaced every few years and do not protect your oral health the way dental implants do. With all this incredible value, it’s no wonder so many patients choose dental implants to replace their missing or problem teeth.

Below are some of the many reasons patients choose to invest in dental implants:

Lifelong tooth restoration

Dental implants are permanent and will not need to be replaced. This benefit saves you the inconvenience, the discomfort, and the cost of more time receiving treatment for your missing teeth.

Protect oral health and youthful facial aesthetics

Dental implants fuse with your jaw bone during healing time through the process of osseointegration. Since they act just like the roots of natural teeth, they continuously stimulate the bone in your jaw when you chew. This keeps bone loss at bay, as well as maintains the proper alignment of teeth in the dental arch. These benefits are likely to save you costly dental work later.

Improved quality of life

It’s hard to place a numerical value on being able to eat the foods you love and speak, smile, and laugh knowing that your replacement teeth are indistinguishable from natural teeth. These everyday life enhancements are invaluable to our dental implant patients.

Dental implants add value to our patient’s lives in so many ways. If you are interested in a permanent, healthy, and lifelike tooth restoration, we recommend you give us a call to discover if dental implants are something you would like to invest in. Our oral surgeons are available to meet with you for a consultation to discuss how dental implants can be a part of your treatment plan for improved oral health and a confident new smile.

Denture Replacement With Dental Implants

Dentures may be a quick fix for missing teeth, but they have limited function and many patients find them to be cumbersome. Dentures do not prevent jaw bone loss or maintain the structural integrity of facial features, which can lead to facial sagging and extensive bone repair treatment. Ill-fitting dentures can cause sores or slip when speaking.

Dental implants solve these problems by providing long-lasting, secure tooth replacement. Through full-arch restoration, our oral surgeons can attach a fixed denture to implant posts. This stability allows you to enjoy eating and speaking with full functionality while preventing jaw bone loss.

3 Things Your Dentist Probably Won’t Tell You About Dental Implants

Dental Implant FAQ

The dental implant process can range from a few months to more than a year for more complex conditions. When you meet with your oral surgeon during your consultation, you will receive a treatment plan that will include the estimated amount of time to complete your dental implant process. This plan will consider many factors: your needs, condition, medical and dental history, and the health of the bone in your jaw.

An experienced oral surgeon, not a general dentist, should place dental implants, to minimize complications and ensure that your implants have long-term durability. An oral and maxillofacial surgeon is the dental professional with the experience and training in the complex surgical procedures required to place successful dental implants. A general dentist usually provides the temporary and permanent replacement teeth (custom crowns) that will be attached to the implants that have been placed by an oral surgeon.

All types of oral surgeries have some degree of discomfort. We want you to know that the team at North Jersey Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is dedicated to both an optimal outcome for you and your comfort. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Drs. Friedman and Schulhof have many years of hospital-based anesthesia training and offer several types of anesthesia options at our practice, including IV sedation. Also, our surgeons are experts in the precision placement of dental implants that are minimally invasive and require the least amount of downtime. We often find that our dental implant patients are back to their regular routines rather quickly!

When teeth are missing for a prolonged amount of time, bone loss in the jaw can occur. When this is the case, dental implants can be a challenge to place correctly. We offer treatments that solve this problem for our patients: bone grafting can restore lost bone in areas where an implant is going to be placed. Bone grafting procedures often allow patients who may not otherwise have been candidates to receive implants.

When your oral surgeon has given you the green light that you’ve healed enough to brush and floss around the implant site, you can take care of your new implant the same way you do your natural teeth. Dental implants are a true tooth replacement, which means if you keep your mouth healthy and see your dentist regularly, your implants have the potential to last a lifetime.

Your implants need to fuse with your jaw bone successfully, and this tends to take a few weeks. Sticking with a diet of soft foods and avoiding chewing on the implant sites is recommended during the healing phase, though we find that most patients are back to their regular routines within a few days after the placement of their implants. Don’t worry; our team will give you detailed post-surgical instructions before your treatment begins. We are dedicated to guiding you through your recovery so that you have the very best outcome without any complications.

Don’t worry; it won’t be long before you’ve healed enough to receive your custom, permanent crown. In the meantime, you will not have to live with a gap in your mouth! While your jaw is healing, you will have options for temporary replacement teeth, such as a temporary bridge, or a modification of your current denture. If you prefer nonremovable teeth during the healing phase of your treatment, you can have a temporary transitional crown placed. You and your doctor will discuss all your options before your procedure.

When children lose permanent teeth due to an injury or accident, dental implants can be an excellent long-term solution. We recommend meeting with an oral surgeon as soon as possible after the tooth is lost to discuss options. In many cases, the surgeon will want to wait until your child’s growth has completed before performing a dental implant procedure, usually around age 16 for girls and age 18 for boys.

We thank you for the opportunity to offer you the best care possible. If you have any questions or would like to schedule your consultation with one of our oral surgeons, please contact us at (201) 801-3440 . to speak with one of our knowledgeable and friendly staff members.

Dental Implant Cost in Teaneck, NJ

Iconic Implant Institute is dedicated to delivering the best oral surgery care at competitive prices for our area.
