IN WARREN, NJ
If you're missing teeth, you're not alone. Tooth loss is a far more common problem than you think. In fact, studies show that 178 million people across the United States are missing at least one tooth, and 35 million are completely missing all their teeth. Whether you have lost one tooth or multiple ones to gum disease, tooth decay, or a traumatic injury, the office of The Star Dental Group can help. We provide state-of-the-art care and offer the latest solutions to help patients reestablish complete, healthy, and beautiful smiles.
Dental implants are small, biocompatible surgical posts that behave in much the same way as the roots of natural teeth. Once placed and integrated with the surrounding bone, dental implants provide unparalleled support for single crowns, bridges, and dentures. As the most advanced method for the replacement of missing teeth, they offer satisfying, long-lasting, and functional solutions for rebuilding a complete smile.
Today, dental implants represent the most advanced system for the replacement of missing teeth. While conventional fixed bridges and dentures remain effective and satisfying ways to replace missing teeth, dental implants come the closest to replicating the look, feel, and function of a natural smile.
With dental implants, you can once again enjoy all your favorite foods and speak and smile with renewed confidence and ease. Because dental implants behave in much the same way as the roots of natural teeth, they provide unrivaled stability for the placement of a broad range of dental prostheses, including crowns and bridges up to a complete set of teeth. For patients who wear full dentures, dental implants provide the added stability and retention required to improve comfort and fit while preventing any embarrassing slippage. By not replacing missing teeth, the adjacent ones can shift towards the space over time and change your bite and compromise the health of your smile in many ways.
If you are struggling with tooth loss and looking for the best solutions for the replacement of missing teeth, visit the office of The Star Dental Group to learn more about dental implants and all the state-of-the-art services we provide. At the office of The Star Dental Group, we take pride in creating beautiful and healthy smiles!
THE BENEFITS OF
Dentist in Warren, NJ
Whether you're missing one tooth, multiple ones, or missing all your teeth, you can rebuild a complete and beautiful smile with dental implants! According to statistics, roughly 3 million people have already received dental implants, with that number increasing at a staggering rate of 500,000 per year! The soaring popularity of dental implants is attributed, in large part, to the numerous benefits they offer as compared with other methods of care.
While conventional fixed bridges and dentures provide effective and satisfying solutions for the replacement of missing teeth, dental implants offer several advantages over traditional methods of care:
Dental implants come the closest to replicating the look, feel, and function of natural teeth.
Dental implants provide continued stimulation to the underlying bone to prevent the bone loss that occurs when teeth are missing while preserving natural facial contours.
Since implants behave like natural teeth, there is no chance that they will slip or dislodge like removable dentures when speaking or eating.
With dental implants, it is possible to speak with ease as well as eat and taste all types of food with virtually no restrictions.
Dental implants do not decay and will not develop cavities.
BEFORE & AFTER
Dentist in Warren, NJ
This patient lost her lower left teeth. In just 3-4 months, 3 dental implants were placed and three beautiful porcelain crowns were placed over the dental implants. This totally natural appearance is equally functional and allows her chew comfortably with no removable teeth.
Replacing missing teeth with pure titanium dental implants is now a common occurrence. With the placement of porcelain bonded to gold alloy crowns for strength in the molar areas, these teeth feel and function like the real teeth they replace.

Frequently asked questions
Are dental implants right for me?
How are dental implants placed?
Why might I need a bone graft to get a dental implant?
According to clinical studies, dental implants have a demonstrated long-term success rate of well over 95%. However, the long-term stability and success of a dental implant depend upon the presence of sufficient bone at the time of placement. In cases of periodontal disease or following the extraction of a tooth, bone volume is often lost. By placing a bone graft in the extraction site, or prior to the placement of a dental implant, we can establish sufficient bone support for a sturdy and stable dental implant.
How much does a dental implant cost?
While rebuilding a complete smile with dental implants is a worthwhile investment, our office is sensitive to the costs involved in dental care. We customize care and will discuss all treatment options that address your oral healthcare needs, cosmetic goals, and budget. Our office is dedicated to making care more accessible and will help patients navigate their dental insurance coverage and optimize their benefits. We can also discuss payment plans as well as financing treatment to make things easier for you. Feel free to contact our team with all your questions regarding methods of payment and financing options.
Why is it so important to replace missing teeth?
Even if you've lost a back tooth that no one sees, it's essential to replace it. Missing teeth do more than cause embarrassing gaps in your smile. In addition to affecting your ability to chew and speak, missing teeth can also cause gradual changes to the alignment of your remaining teeth. These changes not only affect your bite, but they have the potential to create more unsightly and unhealthy gaps in your smile. Furthermore, without the support of a complete set of teeth, facial contours can begin to sag, creating a more haggard look over time.
Are dental implants suitable if I am missing more than one tooth?
In addition to representing the most advanced solution for the replacement of missing teeth, dental implants are also the most versatile. While an individual implant supports a crown to replace a single tooth, additional implants can also be placed to replace multiple teeth. Even if you're missing all your upper or lower teeth, dental implants can be used to reestablish a complete and beautiful smile.
How can dental implants help if I already wear full dentures?
Are dental implants safe?
Just like a new hip or new knee, dental implants are fabricated from the highest quality of medical-grade biocompatible materials. While most dental implants are made of titanium, some are fabricated from zirconia. Both titanium and zirconia are biocompatible materials, which integrate well with the hard and soft tissues in the jaw.
Will dental implants give me a natural looking smile?
How do I take care of my dental implant?
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants enjoy the highest success rate of any implanted medical prosthesis. However, their longevity depends on a number of factors. Enjoying the benefits of dental implants in the long term relies upon skilled placement, adequate bone volume at the time of placement, and the level of ongoing oral care. With proper care, well-planned and well-placed dental implants will serve you well for many years to come.
