What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are restorations that replace compromised or missing teeth. We offer a full range of implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures to meet your specific needs. Dental implants consist of an implant post, abutment, and prosthetic teeth. The implant post is unique because it performs the same job as your natural tooth root and stimulates your jawbone, which prevents bone loss and preserves your facial structure. It also creates the firm base that anchors your prosthetic teeth so you can eat, speak, and smile confidently, knowing your restoration won't slip.

Our Dental Implant Process

The moment you walk into our office, you notice the friendly and inviting atmosphere. A member of our team will extend a warm greeting and assist you through the check-in process before inviting you to enjoy our relaxing waiting area. Our compassionate oral surgeon takes the time to get to know you and asks questions to ensure we understand your needs and smile goals.

We perform a gentle exam of your teeth, gums, and jaws, complete with scans of your dental structures, to bring to light any underlying issues. This allows us to craft a treatment plan tailored to your specific oral health concerns and ensure we address potential issues before they develop into larger problems. Our office is equipped with state-of-the-art technology like CBCT, intraoral cameras, and 3D-printed surgical guides to improve accuracy and maximize your comfort.

Our oral surgeon uses computer-guided surgery to strategically place the implant posts for your restorations. Typically, we'll place a single post for a dental crown, two for a bridge, and a predetermined number for dentures. Once your procedure is complete, we'll provide helpful tips and instructions to guide you through the next steps in your treatment plan.

Pretreatments for Dental Implants

When you select a dental implant as your restoration, it's important to undergo any necessary pretreatments to ensure a successful procedure. That's why we offer the array of pretreatments you may need to prepare your dental structures for an implant-supported restoration. Here are some of the dental implant pretreatments we offer:

  • Extractions: We do everything we can to maintain your natural teeth, but if you have compromised or decayed teeth, an extraction may be necessary. Our team carefully reviews your medical history and performs a complete exam to determine which teeth require extraction to protect your overall oral health.
  • Bone Grafts: If your jawbone is too thin or brittle, then you may need a bone graft to ensure the implant post has sufficient material to fuse with. Our oral surgeon places additional material along your jawbone to increase its density and strength.
  • Sinus Augmentation: When your upper jaw is thin or your sinuses are too close to the bone, it can create problems when your implant post is secured. That's why we offer sinus augmentation to create adequate room between your sinuses and your dental implant.

Tooth Implant FAQs

Renewing your smile can seem like a complex process, and it's natural to have questions. That's why we encourage you to voice your questions and concerns. We are happy to provide the answers and information you need to feel confident in your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about dental implants in Fairfield:

How do I take care of my dental implants?

Dental implants are easy to care for because you simply brush and floss them like your natural teeth. It's important to maintain your biannual dental appointments so your dentist can verify the integrity of your prosthetic teeth.

Yes. While dental implants allow you to enjoy many of your favorite foods again, there are some foods that you should avoid, like ice, hard candies, and certain nuts.

Dental implants are durable, and the implant post we place is permanent because it fuses with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. Properly cared for, prosthetic teeth can last a decade or longer.
