A New Life Awaits With Dental Implants
- May 22, 2016
Welcome to the Gentle Dental Care blog! If you live in the central Connecticut region, we’d love to see your smiling face in our office sometime soon. And if you don’t feel much like smiling because you are missing one or more teeth, we have a viable solution for you to improve your quality of life: dental implants.
Dental implants are much more stable and natural-looking than bridges, and they eliminate the instability issues associated with dentures. They also help preserve your healthy tooth structure because there’s no need for us to file down healthy teeth in order to place your implants.
And, since Dr. Thomas Peltzer is a member of The International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and has had extensive experience surgically placing dental implants as well as restoring implants with crowns, bridges, and implant-retained dentures, you know you’ll be in good hands here.
If you are struggling with the aftermath of tooth loss, you’ll love all that our implants can do for you. Follow along this blog post to see why, and then be sure to follow up with us to arrange for your dental implant consultation! We’ll help you get back on-track fast.
We Make Implants Convenient
This simple surgical procedure involves a two-step process. Here’s the deal: your implant will first be inserted and allowed to fuse with your bone. This will mimic the function of your root.
Once sufficient healing has happened, a dental crown will be placed during your second visit to our office. This is the part that will look like the top of your natural teeth.
Implants Make You Look Better
With holes everywhere, your smile will suffer. And when your cheeks collapse, it will make you look older than you really are. But lucky for you, the crown we place over the implant will look and feel completely natural, it will give you a fuller smile and facial support. You will look great and have new confidence!
No Pain Or Discomfort From Dental Implants
As far as artificial teeth go, nothing will be as easy or as comfortable as a dental implant. Our implant and crown combination feels so much like your natural teeth that you’ll forget that they aren’t your own.
Implants Make Eating Worthwhile
Once both parts of the procedure are through, you will once again have real biting power. This means that you can go back to eating the foods you love, and the fiber-rich stuff that keeps you healthy and feeling good.
Taking Care Of Implants Is A Breeze
Here’s the deal: you simply brush your “teeth” twice a day and floss like you normally would, and then come into our office for regular 6 month checkups to make sure your teeth and gums remain healthy. That’s all there is to caring for your implants that should last a lifetime.
There are several options besides individual implants when more than one of your teeth are missing…
All-on-4: an upper or lower arch of replacement teeth are attached to four implants.
All-on-6: an upper or lower arch of replacement teeth are attached to six implants.
Implant-retained dentures: removable dentures that snap onto an implant-supported bar or are connected by balls and sockets.
Implant-supported dentures: permanent full or partial dentures secured to several implants.
Fixed bridge: two or more implants supporting a few teeth to permanently fill a gap left by missing teeth.
