What are Dental Implants?
Simply put, dental implants are any appliance that is anchored in place with titanium rods that are attached to your jawbone. They can be used to replace individual teeth or a full bridge, and can have replacement teeth mounted to them permanently or as removable appliances.
Why Dental Implants are Better than Dentures
Dentures are designed to be removable, and instead of resting inside of your jaw like real teeth, are temporarily fasted to your gums using dental adhesive. While they have helped many people smile and enjoy more foods after they have lost their teeth, they are very much an outdated technology.
Because dentures sit on top of your gums, they rarely feel right. Most people have a lot of trouble learning how to effectively chew and speak with dentures in, and they can leave your mouth feeling very sore. Adhering them inside your mouth is a struggle that never really goes away, and you’ll probably have to deal with dentures that slip and detach themselves while you’re talking or trying to eat.
In addition to being uncomfortable and difficult to adjust to, dentures can create a host of problems inside your mouth that can feel like more trouble than they are worth. If you fail to clean them thoroughly enough, food particles can begin to rot, causing bad breath and a terrible taste in your mouth. If you wear your dentures for a long time, food can get trapped between your dentures and your gums, causing irritation, sores, and bad breath.
Permanent dentures, a form of dental implant, are attached directly to the bone of your jaw thanks to implanted titanium rods. Not only do permanent dentures look much better than traditional dentures, they also feel better because they sit in your mouth in what is essentially the same way as your real teeth did. The permanent dentures are permanently affixed to the titanium rods by your dentist so you’ll never have to deal with slipping, frustrating dentures!

Full Arch Replacements
If you have lost all of your teeth due to an accident, age, or for any other reason, you might feel like you are limited to wearing uncomfortable dentures. Luckily, this isn’t the case any longer. Thanks to the specialized process of creating full arch replacements, the dentist here at the Dental Group of East Brunswick can restore your smile to its former glory while also helping you to live a normal life. A full arch replacement makes it possible to enjoy all of your favorite foods without having to deal with uncomfortable dentures, and these dental implants will also help stop the bone loss that comes with having lost all of your teeth.
The Full Arch Replacement Process
The dentist will begin the process by examining your mouth to ensure that you are a candidate for a replacement. If you are, the dentist will start the process by surgically implanting anchors into your jaw that will take the place of missing roots while also providing a place to attach the implants. This part of the process may not be completed all at once, especially if you need to have both your top and bottom teeth replaced. However, the dentist will attach temporary teeth to help you eat while you permanent teeth are designed and all of the anchors are implanted.
Over the course of several visits, the dentist will attach your new permanent teeth that have been designed to perfectly fit inside your mouth. These teeth are made from extremely strong materials to be durable and they also look wonderful. Once all of your new teeth have been implanted, you’ll be able to eat and speak normally. Our patients who have undergone full arch replacements are always incredibly happy with the results because they feel like we have given them a new lease on life. Contact Dr. Nahel Yanni’s dental office in East Brunswick today if you are interested in learning more about a full arch replacement.

Dental implants is a broad term that encompasses many different types of permanent dental appliances. From full arch replacements that can replace all of your teeth to a single or partial permanent bridge, dental implants tend to look and function the most like real teeth because they are permanently attached to your jaw like real teeth.
Dentures are appliances that have been designed to replicate the look and feel of your teeth and some of the surrounding tissue.
Today, dentures can be removable or permanent. Permanent dentures are a form of dental implant while removable dentures are kept in place using adhesives or suction. While removable dentures do last a long time, they can take longer to get used to than permanent solutions and they can cause irritation as well as difficulty eating and speaking.
A bridge is useful if you are missing several teeth and are looking for a permanent way to fill gaps in your teeth. Using your existing teeth as anchor points, the dentist will create molds of replacement teeth to fill the gap. These replacement teeth are then bridged by the remaining teeth for a permanent solution.
