Our East Haven dental implants restore your full smile, and they do so without the drawbacks that are part of traditional bridges and dentures. In order to determine your eligibility for implants, we at the office of Carl P. Prota, DMD, want you to know some of the common aspects of candidacy for them.
The key qualifications are that your gums should be healthy and your jaw bone strong and thick enough to hold the implant. As part of your exam and consultation, other factors will be discussed, including if you have diabetes or you are a smoker. Bridges and dentures lay on top of your gums, but they do not look, feel, or function like natural teeth. They are a good choice so that you don’t have empty space where you used to have teeth. And you will be able to chew your food more effectively. Our East Haven dental implants, on the other hand, are not just a solution on the surface. They extend below the gum line, and are anchored in your jaw, just like your real teeth are. This is done with a titanium post that our implant dentist surgically places. Your jaw bone grows around the post, and eventually fuses with it, giving you a dependable and long-lasting new root. The second step is to take impressions that are used by the dental lab to fashion a tooth-colored crown. It acts as the tooth portion of our East Haven dental implants, and is cemented to the top of the post. Unlike with fixed bridges, your surrounding tooth material is not affected. And unlike with dentures, you don’t have to restore to messy and not always reliable adhesive.
