What is a dental implant?

A dental implant (prosthesis) interfaces with the skill or bone of the jaw to support a dental prosthesis, such as dentures, crowns and bridges, or facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.

Litchfield Dental Care team performs:

Surgical implant

The team uses modern dental anesthetic to numb the site, and experienced hands carefully place your dental implant. A teeny guide hole provides a path for threading a small implant into place. The sterile piece is inserted into the exact location, and a smooth cover (healing cap) protects the implant during the healing period.

Implants can’t withstand regular bite forces until the bone fully integrates. The team will help you decide what will work best during the healing period, ensuring you can function while protecting implants, and usually lasts 3-6 months as bone grows.

Most patients experience minimal discomfort after placement, especially compared to extraction, and many find the procedure easier than they anticipated. Various types of sedation may fit your comfort level best.

Restorative dental implant

A carefully developed treatment plan which includes an implant placement sets a solid foundation for an array of restorative options.

After healing, bridges or crowns will be custom-made and attached to the dental implant with small screws or dental cement.

Customizing your case from initial planning to final placement makes all the difference, allowing for a full range of services to be considered, from replacing one tooth to restoring the entire mouth.

What can I expect from a dental implant?

A long-lasting choice, dental implant-supported dentistry brings you as close to growing new teeth as possible. The team of experts places dental implants in the same bone that once supported teeth so that patients can enjoy the function of a natural tooth.

Modern porcelains produce a result so life-like you may forget they aren’t your natural teeth. Dentures can also be attached to dental implants when more than one missing tooth needs to be replaced. The confidence and stability you develop with implants will leave you smiling.

The Litchfield Dental Care team of experts uses the latest technology to collect all the data necessary to help plan your restorative case. Digital X-rays, 3D mapping, models, and photographs prove valuable. The team also works with highly regarded specialists to bring all components of your case together.
