Our New Haven dental implants are the most advanced way to replace missing teeth. You can get them for single teeth, or as the foundation for a bridge or dentures, which makes for a new and more reliable version of those traditional restorations. Here at the office of James M. Quigley, D.M.D., we’re dedicated to making the best possible treatment options available to you, our valued patient.
When it comes to being eligible for our New Haven dental implants, the most crucial qualification involves your jaw bone. With traditional dentures and bridges, they sit on top of your gums, held in with adhesive or cement, respectively. Implants are different. They are anchored in your jaw like a natural tooth is. The titanium post that is surgically placed in your jaw serves the role of a root. Your jaw bone grows around it and fuses with it, and that’s what makes an implant so dependable. If your jaw structure does not meet the necessary standards, you can have bone grafting done as a remedy. Bone is simply taken from another part of your body, and then transplanted into your jaw, spurring the growth of new and denser bone material. You will also need to have healthy gums for our New Haven dental implants. Our dentist will discuss other possible factors that can affect your qualifications, such as being diabetic or a smoker. And when you consider the fact that with proper care, an implant can last a lifetime, you can clearly see the value of one. There are no messy adhesives to use, and your other teeth remain unaffected.
To get things started, all you have to do is contact our office right now and we will schedule you for a convenient time to come in for an examination and consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for our New Haven dental implants.
