Is your tooth loss taking a toll on your confidence? Are you finding it difficult to speak clearly, or chew your food normally? These are common issues that people with missing teeth struggle with. Our Greenwich implant dentist from My Creative Dentist would love to help you resolve these problems so that you can go back to living live as you should. Dental implants have helped many patients get their confidence back and relieve the difficulties they were facing as a result of their tooth loss. Dental implant surgery is a restorative procedure that is completed through a series of steps.
The first thing you will need to do is to visit our Greenwich implant dentist at Creative Dentist so that we can evaluate the current state of your teeth, and make sure that you meet the qualifications needed to proceed with dental implant surgery. In order for dental implants to be successful, you need to have a sufficient amount of surrounding bone mass in the jaw, and a sturdy foundation in the sinus areas if you need implants in the upper part of your mouth. You also need healthy gums and good oral hygiene in general in order for the implants to function at their best. If any preliminary procedures are needed in order to properly prepare your mouth for implants, our Greenwich implant dentist will make suggestions accordingly. From there, the implant procedure can begin. The actual implant is a small metal post that is placed directly into your jawbone. Over a period of three to six months, the metal will begin to combine with your natural bone, forming a solid foundation for your new replacement tooth to depend on. The replacement tooth, in the form of a dental crown, will then be attached to the dental implant. It will be color matched to the rest of your smile, allowing it to look, as well as function, just like a natural tooth.
To learn more about dental implants and the potential they hold for you, along with the other dental services provided by our Greenwich implant dentist, we encourage you to visit the main My Creative Dentist website and contact us if you have any questions. We hope to work with you in the future.
