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 Pennsauken, 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.

I have been going here for years! The hygienist is the best. I never have any discomfort when cleaning and he does a great job. The doctor has taken over this practice and she is so nice, very thorough and up-to-date on the latest technology and procedures! My kids have tried other dentists and prefer Dental Arts Group in Pennsauken!
Very understanding team. I highly recommend them. They are a fine group of people.
I recently had my first cleaning at Dental Arts Group in Pennsauken and the experience was fantastic. I asked them about an issue with my gums. I have been asking dentists for years and for the first time ever I got an actual answer! They took the time to actually sit down and teach me about my mouth and what I can do better. Even cooler, they take high resolution pictures with this cool camera of any potential problem areas so that at my next cleaning they can compare to see if it’s getting better. I feel like I’m in such great hands here I will definitely be back!
