Dental Implant Services in Mendham, NJ
Before developing dental implants, crowns, bridges, or dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth. Since then, implant dentistry has become an advanced treatment that is now a widely used procedure in cosmetic dentistry and restorative services. However, not everyone is a good candidate for a dental implant; for a successful implant to take hold, you must have proper amount of bone and a strong immune system.

Implants for Missing Teeth
We provide implants for the following common reasons:
- Replacing All Teeth: If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them.
- Replacing Multiple Teeth: If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them
- Replacing a Single Tooth: If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. If you are missing one tooth in a given area of your mouth, we may recommend that you consider one dental implant to replace the root of the missing tooth, and an implant crown to rebuild your tooth in a beautiful and natural-looking manner.
How Dental Implants Can Help
Dental implants are titanium posts placed into the jawbone and function much like the root of a natural tooth. An artificial tooth, called a crown, is attached to the implant to replace your missing tooth.
Dental implants can be a viable solution if these conditions apply to you:
- You have missing teeth
- There’s enough bone to support an implant
- Your oral health is good
How Can I Care For My Dental Implants?
Preventative care is an important factor in ensuring that your dental implants function properly. Continue to practice good oral hygiene by brushing at least twice a day, using a toothbrush with soft bristles. It is also a good idea to floss and use a small interdental brush to care for hard-to-reach areas.
