Rebuild Your Smile With Dental Implants

For those who are missing teeth as a result of injury, or because excessive decay has taken its toll, a dentist may recommend dental implants. These provide a permanent solution for restoring appearance as well as the ability to eat and speak. If you avoid looking in the mirror or laughing with friends, our professionals at Stephen A. Solomon, DMD & Associates are committed to helping patients look and feel their best. Read on, or schedule a consultation in our Putnam, CT, dental office to learn more about rebuilding your smile with dental implants.

What is a Dental Implant?

Also known as an artificial tooth root, the structure consists of three parts: a titanium screw, abutment, and a porcelain crown that resembles the natural tooth. A dentist may recommend a dental implant to support a prosthesis, such as a bridge or dentures. But there are many different types available depending on your specific needs.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants rehabilitate the facial structures, revitalize your mood, and are a long-lasting investment in your health, comfort, and well-being. As few as two can support the removable lower dentures and as little as four can deliver a full set of the bottom and top teeth. There are many other advantages to this restorative dental service because they help:

  • Reinstate a strong bite.

  • Improve your quality of speech.

  • Last many years with adequate oral hygiene.

  • Look and feel like your natural teeth.

  • Eliminate pain and discomfort.

What to Know About the Procedure

At Stephen A. Solomon, DMD & Associates, our dentist places dental implants in two phases. Several deciding factors play a role in how long treatment will take. We can substitute a single tooth or multiple if your oral and overall health are both in good standing. During a minimally invasive surgical procedure in our Putnam, CT, dental office, Drs. Stephen Solomon or Jonathan Solomon insert the titanium post into the jawbone. Once it's in the proper position, you'll begin the healing process, as it fuses with the bone over a series of months.
