The Implant Process
To ensure that the full process runs smoothly, a patient must follow a certain protocol on their journey to receive dental implants. As part of our process in Gloucester City, NJ, we consider how an implant might help the patient, as well as what pretreatment requirements might be required in order to ensure a successful outcome. This process is as follows:
Starting with a consultation between the patient and doctor, the journey towards a new smile begins. A consultation offers the opportunity to ask questions and to develop a plan that addresses the specific needs of the patient.
If it is discovered that the patient requires treatment, this must first be completed. Problems like gum disease, poor bone density, untreated injuries, or severely decayed teeth are all treatable and this step must be taken to ensure the patient is in the best condition prior to placement surgery.
After determining the mouth is healthy enough, the placement procedure will take place. The doctor first creates a small incision above the implant placement area. Through this opening, a titanium post will be inserted and anchored to the jawbone. The incision site will then be closed and left to heal for between three and six months.
After having enough time to integrate with the supporting bone structure, the implant post should be stable enough to place an abutment. An abutment acts as the connecting piece between the implant post and dental crown, connecting the entire appliance together.
Based on the patient and doctor’s consultation, a customized crown is built to match the patient’s preference for color, size, and shape. Once the crown is cemented or screwed into place, the patient will enjoy a strong, healthy, and appealing smile for a lifetime.

What Others Are Saying
I’ve been going to this practice since September for dental work and it’s been a very pleasant environment and the team are great with people. They made me feel very comfortable in their care since I’m suffering from really bad anxiety around the dentist. I recommend 100%.
I found this practice while looking for providers since I just started a new job position in Gloucester City and I’m not familiar with much in town yet. I could not be happier with the services and the team – they’re super welcoming, understanding and patient. The personnel are very transparent when explaining procedures and help out however they can. Highly recommended.
I haven’t visited the dentist in many many years and was quite nervous my first time back. Throw everything bad you’ve heard about the dentist out the window because the team here was really so amazing from start to finish. The hygienist was so caring and really took the time to explain everything she was doing during the process. I ended up having 5 cavities which were filled by the doctor, and again the same 10/10 experience. Thank you for changing my previous bias against the dentist. I look forward to my next appointment!
I’m so glad that I chose Dental Arts Group in Gloucester City for my dental appointments. The team are all extremely competent and friendly. I couldn’t ask for better dental care and support.
