Dental implants are an effective way to replace missing teeth and an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile. In fact, the development and use of implants is one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past 40 years.
Dental implants is one of many services Dr. Mancuso provides at her Fair Lawn office.
Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. The posts, which are basically replacements for missing roots, are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth.
Most patients find their implants to be secure and stable, and a good replacement for their own tooth. Implants can make the sore gums and clicking noises associated with dentures a thing of the past.
