Get The Smile You Deserve With Rolling Hills Dentistry
Dental Implants in Danbury, CT
Whether you are missing one tooth or need multiple teeth replaced, dental implants can offer the most natural solution. Using the latest dental technology, surgical techniques, and imagery, Rolling Hills Dentistry offers dental implants that can give you back your complete smile that looks and feels like your natural teeth.
Dental implants are surgically placed titanium posts that replace the missing teeth roots and bond to the jaw bone for a permanent structure for your new teeth. Once the posts heal, a new dental crown is bonded to the post to create a durable, single tooth that looks and functions like a natural tooth. Dental implants are designed to last for the rest of your life if you keep up with good oral health.
Dental implants have many advantages over other restorative options like removable dentures or dental bridges. Because the implant is secured in the jaw bone, bone growth is stimulated which helps to maintain the structure of your jaw for appearance and tooth stability. The implants become a permanent part of your jaw, with no need for adhesives or other supplies to keep your new teeth in place. This makes a dental implant the best tooth replacement option for your smile.

The Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are a surgical procedure the requires local anesthesia. First, you come in for a consult with Dr. Winokur, our implant dentist, to go over your goals and overall health. This will help determine if you are a good candidate for implants. An important thing to note is that if we suspect any bone loss on your jaw or weakened areas on your jaw, we must place a bone graft on it to strengthen it. This is critical to help sustain the integrity of the implant.
Dental Implant Placement
Next, once we determine you are a good candidate or strengthen your bone, we remove your broken tooth and a maxillofacial and oral surgeon anchors the implant into your jawbone. Remember, your replacement tooth will be anchored to your gums like the rest of your teeth. Upon the completion of the anchor, we wait a couple of months until the implant fuses with your jawbone. The timing is very important because we want to make sure the implant won't ever be damaged over the course of your life.
Finally, we place the new tooth on the abutment once we determine the implant is properly connected to your bone. There are a couple of types of implants.
Removable: These are similar to dentures. It contains the artificial tooth that is surrounded by pink plastic gum. The implant is mounted on a frame and snaps into place on the abutment. Additionally, it can be removed to be cleaned daily or repaired. Due to the nature of this implant, it can contain several artificial teeth like a dental bridge.
Fixed: These are permanently attached to the individual abutment. You can't remove the implant and with this type, each crown is attached to its' own dental abutment.
Whatever you choose, we make sure that the final product looks and feels like your teeth. If you have more questions about the dental implant procedure process, give us a call today to schedule a free consultation.
