A dental implant is a small titanium post that is placed directly into the jawbone to restore the root structure of a lost tooth. No other treatment does this, and that’s why dental implants provide the most stable and natural-looking solution to missing teeth available today. They can be used to replace everything from a single tooth to an entire smile, and if you’re looking to say “goodbye” to the gaps in your teeth, we can help you get them right here at South Windsor Dental.
If you are hoping to replace a single missing tooth, an implant-retained crown is simply the best way to do it. After you have healed from having the implant post placed in your jaw, Dr. Sara Curcio will then attach something called an abutment to it, which is a small metal screw that will be used to support an all-porcelain crown. This will all come together to give you a restoration that is completely indistinguishable from your other teeth in every way.
And, if you have a few missing teeth right next to one another, these crowns can even be bonded to other prosthetic teeth to form a fixed implant-retained bridge.Learn more about Implant-Retained Crowns & Bridges
Rather than relying on small metal clasps or natural suction to keep your denture in place, dental implants can give you a set of teeth you can always rely on. Dr. Curcio can supply you with a denture that attaches directly to multiple implant posts, and with this, you’ll enjoy:
