So a number of implants are being placed these days when there's a single tooth that may have been knocked out maybe in the front or so. We have people hitting the bottom of a pool, basketball injuries, sledding injuries, various things where the tooth might actually be lost. So to replace that area, we do have the ability to trim the adjacent teeth – that is, to grind them down – and then place a bridge over top, which is cemented and it stays in place; however, it does require me as a dentist to actually trim those adjacent teeth.
Now, if there's big fillings in those adjacent teeth, well then I think the bridge is still a very good option. But a lot of times, if it's a tooth that had gotten knocked and the other teeth are just fine next door, to trim those down is a little aggressive. And so by having a single implant placed and then basically a screw and a crown placed on top of it, this allows us to replace the tooth, make everything look nice and even, and not have to trim those other teeth.

Refill Your Smile With Implants
You want the best smile you can have. You also want replacement teeth that look and feel like your natural teeth. Implants are the best way to achieve those goals.
Bone loss is one of the most overlooked consequences of losing your teeth. Without roots to stimulate your jawbone, your jaw will shrink. This can change the shape of your face, cause wrinkles that can make you look older, and increase your risk of losing more teeth if you have any left.
With implants, you are replacing your lost tooth roots. Implants can support a crown to replace a single tooth, a bridge to replace multiple teeth, or dentures as part of a full-mouth reconstruction procedure. When you have implants, your jaw preserves bone tissue, preventing bone loss that can occur with other tooth replacement options.
Keep Your New Teeth Secure
You have multiple teeth replacement options at our dental practice. In addition to our premier Nobel Biocare standard implants, we also offer mini implants for people who don’t have enough bone to support full-sized implants. Mini dental implants can save you the time and expense of an additional procedure to rebuild your jaw.Dr. Chase Talks about Restoring Dental Patient's Normal Function of the Mouth after Implants
Dr. Chase also has the training and experience to help you enjoy your new teeth faster with the All-on-4® implant procedure. Using four precisely placed implants, you can reduce your recovery time and still support a full set of teeth, often the same day.
Your implant placement can be performed painlessly with our dental sedation. At Friendly Smiles Center in Mount Laurel, NJ, dental implants are changing lives for the better. Eat what you want. Say what you want to say, and smile when you feel like it. If you want to do all these things, call 856-359-4000 for an appointment.
