If you are missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Bethaney B. Brenner may recommend dental implants in Burlington, Connecticut. Dental implants consist of a titanium implant post and a dental restoration. The implant post is surgically placed in your jaw by our dentist, where it acts as replacement tooth roots. The dental restoration, which can be a dental crown, dental bridge, or dentures, is attached to the implant post.
Dental implants have many advantages. They improve the appearance of your smile because they look like natural teeth. The restoration will match the shade of your natural teeth. Dental implants become a permanent part of your smile because the implant post fuses with your jawbone. Dental implants are very durable. They will last for many years, or even a lifetime if cared for well. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not require tooth reduction for placement. Because of this, dental implants improve your long-term oral health. Implants are more convenient than dentures. Dental implants are not removable and do not require adhesives to keep them in place. Dentures can slip, which impairs your speech and makes chewing difficult. Dental implants are a part of you, so you can eat and speak with ease.
