With just three simple components, we at Stamford Dental Group, LLC can give you a replacement tooth that has the appearance of a real tooth, feels like one when you speak and chew, and can last you up to a lifetime with proper care. That’s an exciting proposition, but it’s one that is not only possible, but has been proven to work over and over.
Our 06905 dental implants begin with the surgical placement of a titanium post beneath your gums, directly in your jaw. It serves the role of a root, just as your natural teeth have. Your jaw tissue grows around the post, and then fuses with it. The result is a solid and dependable foundation for your new tooth. The second component is a support or anchor that is added. By adding it, your tooth will feel optimally secure and steady. It is at that point that our 06905 dental implants reach the home stretch. Impressions are taken, which are then used by the dental lab to make your tooth-colored crown. It is cemented to the post, and held in with the assistance of the anchor. When you compare an implant to a traditional bridge or dentures, it is easy to see the differences. A fixed bridge requires the loss of material from the two teeth that surround it, while dentures as held in with clasps and adhesive, leaving them not quite 100% reliable, tending to move around, sometimes at inconvenient times.
Our 06905 dental implants can also be used as the basis for a more state-of-the-art type of bridge or dentures, supported by titanium posts. It’s even possible under some circumstances to get them done in a single day. Regardless of how many teeth you need to restore, or the time frame in which they’re done, isn’t it time you contacted our office and scheduled a consultation and examination to get things underway?
