Whether you are missing one or more teeth, the consequences can be both physical and psychological. Physically, just one missing tooth can impact your ability to maintain a nutritious diet. Psychologically, missing teeth can affect the way you interact with people and weaken your self-confidence. Thus, tooth replacement is a must. Dental implants are an excellent choice because they most closely imitate the look and feel of natural teeth. In Florham Park, dental implants are often the reason patients come to Dr. Rynar and the team at Metropolitan Periodontics & Implantology. A student of Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark who is considered the father of dental implantology, Dr. Rynar has restored many smiles with dental implants and he can do the same for you.
While most people are qualified candidates for dental implants, there are some prerequisites that ensure greater success. These include:
- Sufficient bone volume to support an implant
- Teeth and gums that are healthy
- A dedication to maintaining good oral hygiene
- Not being a smoker or a willingness to quit before receiving implants
- Controlled diabetes or other autoimmune disorders than can affect healing
Taking you medical history and oral health into consideration, Florham Park implant dentist Dr. Rynar will determine if dental implants are the best tooth replacement option for you.
Receiving Dental Implants in Millburn
In most cases, the dental implant process requires two appointments separated by several months. At your first visit, Dr. Rynar places implants in your jaw beneath the open sockets of your missing teeth. Made of biocompatible titanium, the implants will fuse with the surrounding bone tissue as you heal over the course of the next few months. This fusion of post and bone creates a stable foundation for your replacement teeth and encourages healthy new bone growth in your jaw. Once you’ve healed completely, Dr. Rynar makes an incision in the gum tissue covering the implant and attaches your new tooth restoration.
Some patients who come to Metropolitan Periodontics & Implantology are qualified to receive dental implants in a single visit. This process begins with a CAT scan of your jaw that allows Dr. Rynar to develop a precise surgical plan, so your smile can be restored with minimal discomfort, bruising and swelling.
