Dental implants enable cosmetic dentists to create healthy, attractive smiles in an innovative way. Used
to replace one or more missing teeth, dental implants are another cosmetic alternative to conventional bridges
and dentures. In essence, dental implants can act and look like natural teeth. Furthermore, because they
maintain bone mass, dental implants can help prevent additional tooth loss as well as self-conscious feelings
associated with missing teeth.
North Brunswick, Central NJ area cosmetic dentist Dr. Sonal Deshpande is a dental implant specialist serving
patients in the greater North Brunswick area of Middlesex County, NJ. Dental implants are an important part of
her cosmetic practice at Route One Dental as they allow patients with missing teeth to restore their beautiful
and fully functional smiles again.
The most common indications for dental implants are:
Replacement of one or more missing teeth.
Support of a non-removable “bridge” to replace multiple teeth.
Support of removable dentures
Patients who successfully pass a screening and evaluation can be considered as candidates for implant
The consultation for dental implants involves:
Dr. Sonal Deshpande first conducts an oral examination, including an assessment of bone density at the point from which a tooth was extracted. X-rays and CT scans are taken to understand how densely are the roots positioned and if there is enough space to insert an implant. Once this has been determined she discusses the treatment plans with you.
A dental implant restoration consists of a bio-compatible titanium screw and post topped by a dental crown,
bridge, or denture. The dental implant is placed into the jawbone where it replaces the natural tooth root. In
a few months, the dental implant securely attaches to the bone, allowing it to withstand biting and chewing
forces identical to a healthy, natural tooth.
The primary factor in implant dentistry is the amount of bone available to create support for the dental implant. If it is determined that a patient does not have enough bone to support a dental implant restoration, a bone grafting procedure may be considered to add the necessary bone.
The North Brunswick, Central NJ cosmetic dentist Dr. Sonal Deshpande uses her cosmetic dental expertise to create a permanent tooth replacement.
The cost of your procedure depends on the type and size of the implant you choose. After a thorough study,
Dr. Sonal Deshpande suggests which implants are fit for each individual case. She will also discuss costs with
you during this process so that there are no surprises or hidden fees.
