Dental Implants Hamden Connecticut
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed by into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge by an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist that we will refer you to. We work with only the "best" surgeons and have many offices we refer you to. After the Implant heals, known as osseointegration our office "takes over".
We place a "new tooth" on top of the Implant, generally 2-4 months after the initial surgery.
Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news! Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own!
