Have you lost one or several of your teeth? Have you noticed a change in your bite and appearance as a result of your tooth loss? Are you looking for a permanent smile makeover? Dental implants offer a long-term solution for tooth loss. Dental implants are artificial or fake tooth roots that support dental restorations such as crowns and bridges. Before you get dental implants, a dentist must ascertain that you have sufficient bone tissue and healthy gum to support this kind of dental restoration. If your jawbone has undergone degeneration, the dentist may recommend bone grafting before dental implantation.
Our dentist in ENFIELD, CT offers dental implants to patients who want to restore the beauty and function of their mouth. Don’t allow the loss of your teeth to stop you from living a full life of smiles and your favorite foods. Visit our dental offices today for a solution that will enable you to smile and live without inhibitions.
Here at ENFIELD FAMILY DENTAL, we begin all our dental implant procedures by creating a personalized treatment plan for the patient. This treatment plan includes all patient information, including dental x-rays, and the projected outcome.
Once an individualized treatment plan is in place, the next step involves placing the artificial tooth root inside of the bone socket where your tooth once was. Dental implants are manufactured with titanium alloy, which fuses well with natural bone. You’ll need six to twelve weeks for the new roots to fuse properly with your jawbone, and for your surrounding gum tissues to heal well.
After healing, you’re ready to receive the abutment, or connector post, which holds your replacement tooth in place.
The success of dental implants requires patience and utmost cooperation with the dentist. You must come in for your scheduled appointments so our dentist can monitor whether you’re healing and progressing as needed.
Dental implants are advantageous in many ways, including:
