What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the most effective solution for missing teeth. Using implants — which are made from titanium screws called posts that are inserted into your jawbone to mimic the roots of your natural teeth and later topped with a crown or a bridge — we can replace your missing teeth and give you back your bite and smile. Implants are more durable and longer-lasting than other options and come closer than anything else to the feeling of having a full set of teeth again. You’ll be amazed!
The Implant Process
To ensure that the full process runs smoothly, a patient must follow a certain protocol on their journey to receive dental implants. As part of our process in Avon, CT, we consider how an implant might help the patient, as well as what pre-treatment requirements might be required in order to ensure a successful outcome. This process is as follows:
If your jaw isn’t ready to receive implants, you may need a bone graft to build up the bone structure to the point where we can move forward with the procedure.
Once your jaw is ready to go, your dentist or oral surgeon will place the actual titanium implants in your jaw.
Your jaw will need several months to recover from the procedure, during which time the implants will mesh with the bone structure — a process called osseointegration.
Once your jaw is fully recovered, we’ll place titanium abutments on top of the implants to help serve as a foundation for the crowns that will go on top.
Finally, we’ll place porcelain crowns on top of each implant — giving you a beautiful new smile!
Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a powerful tool for replacing missing teeth and giving you the elegant smile you deserve. With dental implants, you won’t have to worry about gaps in your smile, whether your dentures will fall out at the wrong time, or how you’re going to chew your next meal. Instead, you’ll enjoy the benefits of having artificial teeth that look and feel like the real thing and the confidence that comes along with that.
