Dental Implants in Florham Park
Replace Missing Teeth
Dental implants are designed to provide patients with replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Thanks to this versatile restorative service, patients who have lost teeth can regain the ability to eat virtually anything and smile with confidence. The implants themselves are made of titanium and are placed in the jawbone where teeth are missing. Over time the bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for the patient’s new teeth. What’s more, implants can preserve facial structure, preventing the bone loss that occurs when teeth are missing.
Dr. Rynar has received extensive training in implantology and continues to stay informed of the most recent developments in implant dentistry.
Are Dental Implants Right for You?
Do you want to know if dental implants are right for you? Then we invite you to come in for a consultation and exam. During your visit, we can assess your smile and your medical history, in addition to answering your questions and concerns.
Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are metal anchors that act as substitute tooth roots. They’re surgically placed in the jawbone during a special procedure. Then, small posts are attached to the implant to provide stability to the patient’s replacement teeth.
For most patients, complete implant care involves two surgical procedures. In the first, one or more implants are placed in the jaw. Then, for the next three to six months, the implants are given time to bond with the jawbone. During this time, the patient will wear a set of temporary dentures. Once the implant(s) has finally bonded with the jaw, Dr. Rynar will uncover your implants and attach a small healing collar. When the patient’s replacement teeth are finally ready, they’re attached to the posts that were previously connected to the implants, completing the patient’s restorative procedure.
Advanced Tissue Grafting Procedures
Before beginning a dental implant tooth replacement plan, we may need to perform one or more advanced preparatory tissue grafting procedures. This may include bone graft procedures like sinus lifts or soft tissue grafting. While not everyone needs these services, tissue grafts may be recommended to improve the chances for successful dental implant placement. These graft procedures increase the availability of supportive structure to ensure the placement of one or more dental implants has the highest possible chances for success.

How Do Dental Implants Work?
As the only comprehensive tooth replacement available, dental implants work thanks to something called “osseointegration” -- which means the implant posts are able to actually fuse together with the jaw bone. Once this process occurs, the replacement tooth/teeth have a sturdy foundation to anchor to. And it’s one that can easily last for decades with proper care and maintenance!
Learn How Dental Implants Work
While a lot of advertising is dedicated to convincing patients they can get a completely new smile – including dental implants -- in a single visit, do not believe everything you see or read. Dr. Rynar and his team are among the best-trained implantologists in the United States, and they are very familiar with this technology. At the same time, it is not for everybody. This is why they take the time to thoroughly evaluate your unique situation before making any promises.
For some patients, receiving fully-functioning dental implants in a single visit is possible. When indicated, Dr. Rynar uses computer-guided implant surgery without any flap reflection. This results in less post-surgery discomfort, swelling, and bruising, and most patients can resume their normal activities the next day. The treatment process starts with a CAT scan of the patient’s jaw. In turn, a 3D model of the jawbone is generated through this scan, allowing us to create a detailed, surgical plan. With this plan, the results are more accurate and require far less chair time.
