Dental implants and their benefits
A dental implant is an artificial tooth. Made of a titanium screw, metal abutment post, and porcelain crown, a single implant replaces a missing tooth from roots to crown. The titanium fuses right to the jaw through a process known as osseointegration, making the bond between implant screw and bone virtually inseparable.

Sure, you can if you are in good overall health and have sufficient quality bone in the alveolar ridge of your jaw bone. Dr. Frechtman will examine your teeth and gums, review your health history and take some three-dimensional scans of your jaw bone. If all looks well, you can have the dental implant surgery right at our Edison, NJ, dental office.
