Dental implants are small posts placed beneath the gum to work as the roots of missing teeth. A crown, or artificial tooth, is then fitted to match your teeth and mouth and improve your smile. An implant can replace one tooth or multiple teeth for a full, healthy smile that looks and feels natural. Once the implants are in place, you’ll be able to comfortably eat, drink and talk. For more information on dental implants, Newark, NJ, residents should call Gentle Dental of NJ to schedule a consultation.
