Millions of Americans suffer from tooth loss each year, limiting their dental function and impacting their self-confidence.
At Jersey City Dental, we are proud to offer a superior form of tooth restoration with dental implants.

What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants replace and restore the entire structure of a missing or severely damaged tooth. Implants are small posts that act as artificial tooth roots. These posts are made from biocompatible materials that fuse with the jawbone. Our practice uses titanium implants and zirconia implants.
Once the dental implants have fused with the bone, the implants provide a durable, stable, foundation for a custom-made restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or denture. Implant-supported restorations bring back both the appearance and function of your smile.
How Are Implants Placed?
What Benefits Do Dental Implants Provide? They...
Offer Maximum Stability
Implants are the most secure option for tooth restoration, fusing with your jaw to provide the next best thing to a natural tooth. Unlike traditional forms of restoration, they are fixed in place for maximum stability and convenience.
Prevent Bone Recession
Tooth loss actually causes bone recession when the missing roots no longer provide stimulation to the jaw. Because implant posts replace the tooth roots, they can halt bone loss and even help patients maintain a more youthful facial structure.
Enhance Your Appearance
While dental implants are not considered cosmetic dentistry, they deliver a beautiful smile you'll be happy to share. When you take greater confidence in your smile, the people around you will notice. Implants allow our dentists to restore missing teeth and create a secure, natural-looking smile.
Provide a Long-Lasting Solution
Dental implants themselves can last decades or even a lifetime. The prosthetics that attach to implants can last for decades with proper maintenance. Many dental patients find their longevity makes them a worthy investment.
Visit a Dental Practice That Puts You First
Living with tooth loss or decay can be isolating. Sadly, many patients who do not feel confident in their smiles may shy away from activities they once loved, like smiling in public or trying delicious foods. They may even avoid photos or events.
If this sounds familiar, we can help. Our caring dental team works hard to put you first by explaining your options thoroughly. Not to mention, we also accept financing, bringing you one step closer to the smile you've been missing.
We even offer Saturday hours by appointment as well as free video consults, so that you can enjoy healthy teeth on your own timeline. If you're ready to see if you're a dental implants candidate, contact our Jersey City dentistry practice or call
"I wouldn’t have anyone else doing work on my teeth." Why Jersey City Patients Visit Us for Their Dental Care
This place is unreal. We’re talking about a Dentist office here. Historically, I’ve had the most traumatic experiences with Dentists as it can get. I came to this office to see Dr.Paek for the first time and was referred to him by my brother. I was terrified to go given it’s been as while due to the pandemic. When I walked in I thought I was in the wrong office because it’s so beautiful and modern inside! Never met such nice front desk personnel and staff, everyone was super helpful and very empathetic. My appointment itself couldn’t have gone any smoother and the best part? DIDN’T HURT (had to get a hefty procedure done) and I have extremely sensitive teeth. They have massage chairs while working on your teeth, piña colada numbing cream not that disgusting weird dirty mint flavor that gives you headaches, flat screen tv right in front of you to watch, accepts almost all insurance and the best smiles all around. I highly recommend this Dentist Office believe me you won’t regret it.View on Google
I always have a great experience at Dr Paek’s office.
I give them a hard time at every turn, and believe me I am a tough customer!
My hygienist Jessica is top notch, thorough and yet super gentle and always informative, all of which is obviously extremely important.
Dr. Paek I give the worst time of all…. But I wouldn’t have anyone else doing work on my teeth.
He’s just super smart and knows the issues and how to solve them asap. I feel like my mouth and gums health are in good hands. Highly recommend him to all my family and friends.

What are my options to restore missing teeth with implants?
Two Types of Dental Implants
Titanium is a traditional implant material, boasting a high success rate for osseointegration. Many patients will wind up with titanium implants given their long history of effectiveness.
A newer implant option, Zirconia dental implants are good for patients who'd prefer a metal-free approach to dentistry. Zirconia is tooth-colored, which eliminates aesthetic flaws at the gumline.
Dental Implant Treatment Timeline
Here is a general outline for implant treatment at our Jersey City, NJ, dental practice. Before treatment begins, our dentists will use a 3D cone beam scanner to determine bone density and identify the ideal locations for implants. Your dentists may also design surgical guides or use computer-guided technology to position your implant during surgery for optimum placement, which promotes long-lasting results.

Bone Grafting for Dental Implants
Tooth loss can lead to bone atrophy over time. This occurs because the jawbone no longer has a tooth to support, which causes the bone to deteriorate from lack of use. If you've experienced major bone loss, you will need to get a bone graft before you can get dental implants.
The Bone Graft Procedure
Bone grafting adds hard tissue to the jawbone to restore its density. This bone can be harvested from a donor site from the patient's own body. We can also use bone from a bone bank or synthetic bone graft materials depending on your needs.
In addition to traditional bone grafting, a sinus lift may be performed for dental implants placed in the back of the upper arch. This procedure repositions the sinus membrane and adds bone to the area so implants can fuse with it and create a solid foundation for the restoration.
Added Treatment Time
Bone graft patients will need a few months to heal from their procedure before implants can be placed. This will add several months to the overall dental implant treatment time.
Your New Dental Implants Can Last a Lifetime
Worried about having to replace your dental implants? That may not ever be necessary.
One of the best benefits of dental implants is their longevity. For many patients, implants can last a lifetime, provided they are cared for properly.
Of course, crowns, bridges, and other cosmetic dental restorations attached to the abutments will need to be replaced periodically, but even these can last for decades with good care.
How do I take care of my dental implants?
Dental Implant Maintenance
Practice Good Oral Hygiene
Without proper oral hygiene, your implants can develop complications or become infected. Brush twice daily with non-abrasive toothpaste and floss at least once a day.
Use an Oral Irrigator
An oral irrigator, also known as a water flosser, helps clean hard-to-reach areas around the gums and remove particles stuck between teeth.
Attend Regular Check-Ups
Make sure to schedule regular dental appointments. Your dentist can clean areas you are unable to access and routinely check the health of your implants.
