Improving Florham Park Smiles with Dental Implants
Dealing with one or more missing teeth can be an embarrassing situation. Dental implants can provide patients with an ideal restorative solution that can both replenish your smile and boost your self-confidence. Dr. John A. Carollo specializes in dental implants here at his Florham Park, NJ practice, and our team always takes the time to ensure that you have a comfortable and unique experience. We will formulate and discuss an individualized treatment plan to help you achieve the revitalized oral health you’ve been searching for.
Single Tooth Dental Implants
For patients who are missing one tooth, dental implants can help complete their smile in a truly exceptional manner. A single implant can be placed very precisely in the appropriate socket without requiring the surrounding teeth to suffer negative health benefits, and the new restoration will look and function normally – no changes to your diet or oral hygiene routine required! Better yet, your new tooth root will help sustain and even rejuvenate the health of your jawbone, which can deteriorate due to tooth loss.

All-On-4™ Teeth In A Day
The Teeth in a Day procedure (using the All-On-4™ technique) is the optimal solution for patients who have lost or are about to lose all of their upper and/or teeth. This treatment option allows you to come as close to having a new set of permanent teeth as is currently possible. Patients can clean and maintain their new smile just like they would natural teeth, and they no longer have to struggle through the negative qualities of traditional dentures, such as slippage, messy adhesive, or bad breath.
The A-on-4™ technique consists of a prosthesis that is supported by four strategically placed dental implants. These implants are designed for immediate function and do not require bone grafting, meaning that even patients who lack the bone volume required for traditional implants can enjoy instant and permanent satisfaction by being able to go home that same day with a brand-new set of teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants provide patients with several valuable health and cosmetic benefits, including:
- When was the last time you were able to bite into a crisp apple or a juicy steak? Now, with a stable and permanent restorative solution, you can enjoy your favorite foods again.
- Enjoy a boost of self-confidence from having a stable smile again.
- All-on-4™ technology makes permanent teeth more affordable than ever before by simplifying your treatment down to only four implants per arch.
- You no longer have to deal with the many frustrations associated with removable appliances.
- They create a new, youthful appearance by stabilizing your jawbone health.
- We can ensure long-term results that have the potential to last a lifetime with good oral health maintenance and scheduled check-ups at our New Jersey practice.
Zygomatic Dental Implants
One of the most common roadblocks patients face when pursuing traditional implant treatment is being told that they have insufficient bone volume to support the implants. Instead of electing to undergo time-consuming and costly bone graft surgery to correct the problem, though, why not choose Zygomatic implants? This revolutionary dental implant technique eliminates the need for bone grafts altogether by instead having the implants directly embedded into your cheekbone, where there is enough bone support. With this procedure, patients heal much faster, and treatment time is minimal, as the whole process is guided by computers.

Dental Implant Costs
A single implant with a crown carries a very different price tag than a full set of dentures supported by four implants. During your initial consultation, we can help you figure out the various factors that will contribute to the cost and use them to make a plan. Remember that dental implants can last for years and can prevent health issues from arising as a result of bone loss; over the long term, they’re well worth the price.

Dental Implant FAQ’s
Are you still curious about dental implants? Dr. John A. Carollo wants his patients to have all the information they need to feel confident in their treatment of choice.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
The best way to know if dental implants are right for you is to visit our office for a consultation. Dr. Carollo or Dr. Sonia will carefully examine your smile, the number of teeth you’re missing, and the condition of your jawbone. This appointment also catches any preexisting oral health issues like gum disease, which must be treated before getting dental implants. Good candidates for implants are usually those missing at least one tooth who have a strong enough jawbone for surgery. Additionally, you must have a commitment to a positive oral healthcare routine. However, there are procedures like bone grafts that allow even those with weaker jawbones to enjoy implants, which is why the initial consultation is so important.
What Happens if I Don’t Replace a Missing Tooth?
You may understand how missing teeth affects your appearance, but did you know that they can also impact the rest of your oral health? Unlike other medical conditions that can get better with time, dental problems will only grow worse. When you lose teeth, your jaw loses the stimulation it was getting from their roots, causing it to deteriorate. This can lead to additional tooth loss and a more sunken facial appearance. Plus, your remaining teeth may drift out of place because they don’t have the surrounding dental structure to support them.
How Many Dental Implants Do I Need?
The number of dental implants that you need will directly depend on your pattern of tooth loss. For a single missing tooth, we can use an implant-retained crown. However, for multiple missing teeth, we may be able to support a denture with an average of 4 implants, or a bridge with 2. It will all depend on your smile. In some cases of large molars, we may even need multiple implants to support them. After your initial consultation, we will have developed a personalized treatment plan that includes the number of implants that you need.
Does it Hurt to Get Dental Implants?
Patients may hear that dental implants require surgery and automatically assume that it’s painful. However, those who have received implants relate it to a simple extraction. In fact, we will ensure that you’re numb, comfortable, and completely relaxed before beginning. Dr. Carollo, Dr. Sonia, and the rest of our team takes all the necessary precautions to make surgery easy. The only discomfort you may feel is some slight soreness after your procedure is complete.
