Dental Implants with Sedation Dentistry in Collingswood, NJ

Are you missing a tooth or several teeth? Imagine waking up with a beautiful, complete smile.

Dr. Arthur Thurm is a general dentist and certified dental anesthesiologist. He has three decades of experience repairing and replacing teeth to create beautiful, healthy smiles. Best of all, the dental work can take place while the patient is comfortably asleep or sedated.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a replacement tooth option. The implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw to mimic the roots of a tooth, and then topped with a crown that looks just like a natural tooth. It’s a long-lasting solution to a missing tooth; with proper care, a dental implant can last a lifetime.

Dental implants can also be used to replace several missing teeth. They can be used to anchor a bridge, a removable denture, or a non-removable denture.

What’s the Difference between an Implant, a Bridge, and a Denture?

If you’re missing a tooth, there are several ways you can replace it. A dental implant takes the place of the missing tooth. The post takes the place of the tooth roots, and then it’s topped with a crown that looks just like a natural tooth.

In contrast, a bridge fills the gap left by the missing tooth by using the teeth on either side to support the artificial tooth. The dentist files down the adjacent teeth and caps them with crowns that are attached to the artificial tooth. The artificial tooth rests on top of the gum, but does not extend into the jawbone. Over time, the jawbone beneath it can recede, leaving a small space between the gum and the tooth.

A partial denture, which is sometimes called a flipper, contains an artificial tooth that is attached to a wire frame that slips over the adjacent teeth. It is removable; you take it out at night to clean.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

If you are missing a tooth because of tooth decay, gum disease, or an accident, call our implant dentist in Collingswood today at (856) 335-1775 to schedule a consultation. Almost anyone who is generally in good health is a candidate for dental implants. There are several benefits to choosing to have a dental implant instead of a bridge or traditional dentures. These include:

  • Natural look and feel: Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth.
  • Improved appearance: Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that extend into the jawbone. This keeps the jawbone from deteriorating into a “sunken cheek” look, and keeps other teeth from sliding out of place.
  • Improved ability to eat: Patients with dental implants can eat apples, carrots, corn, and other foods that can be difficult to eat with a removable denture.
  • Improved speech
  • Long-lasting

What is All-on-4® Implant-Retained Denture Treatment?

If you are missing all of your top or bottom teeth, the All-on-4® Treatment method may be the best solution for you. Unlike a traditional denture, which sits on the gum line and is kept in place by denture paste, the All-on-4 treatment method secures a full set of teeth to four dental implants.

This is a popular choice for people who have trouble wearing dentures. Unlike a traditional denture, which can slip and slide, the implant-secured denture stays in place. It’s permanently fixed in the mouth, so you do not remove it at night. Best of all, it allows you to eat whatever you like – even corn on the cob and steak.

Excellent dentist and staff. Seen on time. State of the art equipment and most importantly, correct and good treatment with a conservative approach. Dr. Thurm’s approach is to assess the situation, range of options, whether the treatment is urgent or can wait and proceed from there. Everybody in this facility is both professional and friendly. I wish all businesses were like this.

Outstanding experience! I have avoided the dentist for 35 years due to fear. I honestly thought having my teeth taken care of was completely out of the question until I heard Dr. Thurm’s practice advertised on the radio. From the moment I walked in, everyone on his staff was incredibly friendly and were acutely aware of your trepidation. While in the room waiting to see the Dr. I felt myself…

It was the most positive dental cleaning appointment I have ever had! Carol was very gentle and thorough. I made my next appointment for six months, and now I will be calling to schedule a cleaning for my husband, on the same day.

I have had an abnormal fear of the dentist all my life which led to sever gum disease and I was terrified of what I needed to have done. Dr. Thurm took his time to explain everything that had to be done and he treated me with such kindness and care it was wonderful. I had extractions done, scaling and filings under anesthesia so I did not have to hear or feel what he was doing. I woke up and Dr. T…

My visits to Dr Thurm office is always treat. While that description of dental care may sound strange, from the receptionist to my hygienist Liza, to Dr Thurm himself, they are the best. The office is friendly, thorough, and comfortable. I’ve been going there too many years to count, but can’t I imagine going anywhere else.

If you had told me a few years ago that I would be smiling, and genuinely happy about the way my teeth look today, I would have told you that you were crazy. I have kept my smile hidden for years, not wanting to show my teeth…ashamed of the way they look after years of neglect. I experience dental anxiety, to the point of putting off the care, for years. I knew this was not a good plan, but…

I have an absolutely devastating fear of dentists, and had it not been for excruciating tooth pain, I was content to not visit a dental office. My first visit, while in such pain, was probably the most gentle experience I’ve had with a dental office. The staff was definitely sympathetic to my fear, and instead of treating it dismissively or by treating me like a child, they truly made me fee…

Always a pleasure going to our favorite dentist! Most people dread the trip to the dentist but not my family. As a matter of fact, we travel from West Chester, PA to come to our appointments and will continue to do so until I am no longer able to drive. Any work our teeth have needed has always been a pleasant experience — so far, never a painful moment. Will always be grateful to my friend…
