Dental implants in Riverside CT
If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you already may be thinking about getting dental implants. Many patients come to our practice to get dental implants because dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. If you would like to meet with our cosmetic dentist to see if dental implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth, contact our office, My Creative Dentist, and let them know that you want to meet with our dentist regarding getting dental implants in Riverside CT.
At our dental practice, our expert and highly trained dentist is Dr. Masis Yeterian Jr. When patients come to our practice wanting to get dental implants, our dentist will first need to thoroughly assess their individual dental situation. The jawbone will need to be checked to make sure it is thick enough and healthy enough to permanently hold the titanium dental implant roots. Once it is determined that this is the case, our dentist will surgically implant a dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Dental implants can also be used to securely hold dentures in place. Once the dental implant roots are inserted, there will be a healing period during which time the dental implants in Riverside CT will thoroughly bond to the jawbone, and the jawbone will completely heal.
Once this healing time is completed, our dentist will then permanently attach a porcelain crown to the top of each dental implant root. At this point your dental implant will be complete, and you will be able to enjoy all of the benefits that dental implants have to offer. Your smile will look great and you will be able to speak in total confidence. You will also be able to eat anything you want without worrying that your dental implants will be painful or cause you embarrassment in any way. Best of all, if well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic dental cleanings, your dental implants should last you a lifetime.

Greenwich cosmetic dentistry
My Creative Dentist has been providing excellent adult and Greenwich cosmetic dentistry to the Cos Cob and surrounding areas for many years. We replace missing teeth and broken teeth with the latest in porcelain restorations and dental implants, so those patients who once suffered from missing teeth can once again have a full set.
Our general and restorative dental procedures include dental implants, dental crowns, bridges and dentures. Dental implants are an ideal solution for those who are missing teeth and want a permanent and complete set. Dental crowns are used when a patient has a highly damaged or decayed tooth. The crown acts as a protective cover by making the tooth stronger and reinforcing the jaw area. Bridges are for those who are missing one or more teeth, bridging the spaces between the teeth and stabilizing the rest of the jaw. Dentures are a good option for patients who are missing more than two teeth and who don’t want to go through the costly procedure of having multiple implants put in. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone, making them a permanent and secure anchor to place an artificial tooth over.
Implants are also stronger than a natural tooth root, making them durable and without the need for ever requiring a root canal or filling. The implant helps retain the shape of the bone and the jaw and to maintain the facial aesthetics. This is important because missing teeth can cause a sunken look to the facial structure and deform the jawbone. Also, the surrounding teeth do not need to be filed down as is the case with veneers. Our Greenwich cosmetic dentistry offices also provide complete dental exams, preventive, hygienic and periodontal therapy, teeth bleaching and whitening, root canal therapy, extractions and pediatric dental care.
Greenwich cosmetic dentistry
Do you have missing teeth that need replacement? Or do you have removable dentures that you would like to replace with permanent dental implants? If so, you will do well to come to our practice for Greenwich cosmetic dentistry to have your individual situation assessed, and possibly to get new dental implants.
At our practice, My Creative Dentist, our expert and highly-trained dentist is Dr. Masis Yeterian Jr. When patients come to us for Greenwich cosmetic dentistry services they know that they will receive excellent treatments as well as be treated with great care by all members of our staff. Dental implants are becoming more and more popular with our patients who are looking for teeth replacement. Dental implants are the closest thing you will be able to get to replacing your missing teeth with other permanent teeth. Dental implants look, feel and function just like regular teeth. They are not right for everyone, and our dentist will need to evaluate if you are a good candidate for dental implants; basically, your jawbone must be healthy and you should not have any medical conditions that will interfere with your jawbone’s ability to heal. Once Dr. Yeterian sees that you are a great implant candidate, he will begin by implanting titanium roots into your jawbone. This procedure is done using local anesthesia, while you remain perfectly comfortable. The titanium root will need to bond to the jawbone during the healing process so that it serves as a strong, life-long base for the new ceramic porcelain “tooth.”
Once the healing of your jawbone has completed, our dentist will be able to permanently attach the porcelain crown portion of the implant. Once this is done, your dental implant is complete. Other Greenwich cosmetic dentistry procedures that can use the implant roots are the replacement of removable dentures, or to anchor full lower dentures. The way you will take care of a dental implant “tooth” is by regular brushing and flossing and dental cleanings. If this is done, the implant will be able to last a lifetime. Also, no one will be able to tell you have an implant since the porcelain tooth will be color-matched to your other teeth. Once you have the implant you will be able to eat anything you like, and you will be able to speak perfectly clearly. If you would like to meet with Dr. Yeterian and see if you are a good candidate for dental implants, contact our office today.
