At Molinare Dental Group, the dental practice of Dr. Jon Molinare in Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, we are pleased to offer dental implants for our patients looking for a natural looking smile after losing one or more of their pearly whites. Our dental implant restorations will allow you to eat, smile, talk and laugh with confidence again, as they are designed to look and feel like your natural smile.

When a tooth is lost or removed, both the crown and the root are gone. Your dental implant will be placed into the jawbone to fuse with the natural bone, allowing new teeth to be attached. You can get a dental implant for one tooth, or for multiple missing teeth with a bridge or a denture.

Replacing Missing Teeth

— First, a cylindrical and or tapered post made of titanium is surgically placed into the jawbone to replace the root of your tooth.

— Once the implant has fused your natural jawbone, a connector (called an abutment) is built into the top dental implant. This will connect it to the replacement tooth.

— Finally, a crown (a replacement tooth) is made to match your natural teeth, or even a bridge or dentures supported by the implants.

— To care for your implants, brush and floss regularly, and keep your regular scheduled check-ups and cleanings.

If you have a missing tooth and are tired of feeling self-conscious of your smile, Dr. Jon Molinare and our team are here to help. With our dental implant restoration you can once again smile with confidence!
