More Precision, Predictability, and Function
Discover the full benefits of dental implants.
Dental implants look and feel just like your natural teeth, and they’re fully customized to your ideal shape, size, and color.
Each restoration utilizes the latest advancements in technology along with the highest quality materials for a long-lasting smile you can feel confident to show.
Implants permanently fuse with your jawbone to stabilize your oral health and prevent future bone loss. Plus, implants won’t slip or slide while eating.
The Placement Process
What’s it like to get an implant at Drs. Goodman & Rosenberg General Dentistry?
Having missing teeth can be stressful, so it is our goal to not add to this stress but rather bring it to an end.
Discover how dental implants are placed at our office.
Our Pleasantville restorative dentist meets with you to see if you qualify for dental implants and explains how the process works. This procedure requires you to have adequate jawbone density and overall good health.
We then perform a CBCT scan to get 3D images of your mouth, which help us get a 360 view of your mouth and plan the procedure.
We prepare the site if needed, which may include a tooth extraction and bone graft (this uses transplanted bone to rebuild and strengthen the jaw). Once the site is ready, we insert a titanium post in place of your missing tooth root, which begins to fuse with your jawbone.
The implant placement is a relatively simple process and completely comfortable as we use an implant guide (from the CBCT scan) for better precision and comfort. You’ll also receive anesthesia for a painless procedure.
The last step is the part we see when you smile – the crown or denture on top of your implant. Digital impressions help us create your life-like and fully customized smile, which is perfectly crafted to match your existing teeth or to create a new, improved appearance.
Your implant-supported restoration may include:
- A single tooth using a crown
- Multiple teeth with a bridge
- A full set of teeth with dentures
FAQ: Implant Dentistry in Pleasantville, NJ
How painful are dental implants?
Dental implants are comparable to extractions in that you may feel very mild discomfort, but overall, it’s a pain-free experience. Our restorative dentists ensure your procedure is comfortable from start to finish.
In addition to using a local anesthetic to prevent any pain, we plan your procedure using 3D imaging. This allows us to insert the implant into the best location while avoiding nerves.
After the procedure, our team explains how to care for your mouth at home to promote successful healing.
Is a dental implant worth it?
Yes, dental implants are worth it because they’re a long-term investment in your oral and overall health. There’s no other tooth replacement that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth!

How long does a tooth implant last?
Implant dentistry lasts a lifetime for most people because the implant fuses with the jawbone. As for the restoration itself, which may be a crown, bridge, or denture – this lasts on average for ten years or more.
Restorations are above the gumline and help you chew and speak, so naturally, they will wear over time. In addition, how you care for your dental work affects how long it lasts.
Please care for your new smile just like you’d care for your natural teeth. Be sure to brush and floss, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and visit your dentist for regular cleanings and checkups.
How soon after tooth extraction can you have an implant?
The entire procedure takes a few months because your mouth must heal while the implant fuses with the jawbone. Once ready, our dentist creates and places your new tooth or teeth on top of the implant.
On average, we wait 10-12 weeks for the area to heal.
Can I get a dental implant years after extraction?
Yes, you can get a dental implant years after extraction. It doesn’t matter if you’ve recently experienced tooth loss or have been living with missing teeth for years.
Our 3D imaging allows us to analyze what’s underneath the gumline, including your bone, so that we can plan out your procedure. We also work with denture patients who are ready for an upgrade.
Restorative dentistry in Pleasantville, NJ lets you regain control of your smile and your life! The benefits are endless, and it’s never too late to get your oral health back on track.
