Dental Implants in Newington, CT
A lost tooth can cause even the most self-confident person to feel insecure. Regardless of the reason for that gap in your smile, if you’re like most people, you probably want to hide the gap and restore your smile with the most natural tooth replacement available. Newington Family Dentistry provides patients with dental implants to fill that need. This procedure can not only result in natural looking teeth when one or more teeth are missing, it can help strengthen the jawbone and prevent the bone loss that naturally occurs due to missing teeth. Dental implants can also be used to replace an outdated bridge and stabilize a full or partial removable denture, resulting in more natural chewing and speech.
As the name suggests, the dental implant process begins with a small titanium post being surgically implanted into the jawbone. After a period of time, the post will fuse to your bone in a process called osseointegration. When this occurs, an impression mold will be taken of your mouth, which will be used to create your new tooth. This tooth will then be placed onto the implant to create a permanent replacement for your missing tooth. Your new dental implant will function just like a natural tooth. Your oral hygiene routine can seamlessly include your new dental work, as you can brush and floss it just like you do any tooth.
The best candidates for dental implants are patients who have healthy gums and adequate bone mass. After assessing the patient’s condition and need for tooth replacement, Dr. Dibner will make a recommendation regarding the tooth replacement procedure. Some patients may be suitable for and benefit greatly from implants, others may benefit more from another dental procedure. Patients are advised to visit Newington Family Dentistry to discuss the best treatment plan available for their individual condition.
Dr. Dibner is not only highly skilled and experienced with advanced prosthodontic and dental techniques, but she will also earn your trust by taking the time to listen to you and addressing all of your concerns.
