Are Dental Implants Permanent?

Oradell Dentist Serving Bergenfield, Dumont, and Oradell, New Jersey

Dental implants are unique among tooth replacement options in that they address the missing root, not the tooth itself. Inserted directly into bone, dental implants undergo the process of osseointegration, whereby they become accepted as a new part of the body. Once this process is complete and barring trauma or future issues such as advanced periodontitis, your dental implants will be a permanent part of your smile.

If you have implant dentistry questions in Bergenfield or surrounding New Jersey communities, call Dumont Cosmetic Dental at (201) 384-9292 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Howard Perlmutter.

Things that may interfere with the success of your implant dentistry procedure include:

  • Failed osseointegration
  • Infection
  • Sinus issues
  • Nerve or tissue damage
  • Premature restoration

The last two potential causes of dental implant failure may be related to the skills and ability of your implant dentist. The best way to guard against these complications is by working with an experienced implant dentist like Dr. Howard Perlmutter.

While there is no way to guarantee against implant failure, Dr. Perlmutter takes great care to provide our patients with the most effective treatment possible. If you are looking for an implant dentist in Bergen County, please contact Dr. Perlmutter to learn more.
