DENTAL IMPLANTS - WINDSOR, CT
Replacing Teeth with Dental Implants in Windsor
When it comes to your options for tooth replacement, dental implants are usually at the top of the list. Dental implants are a unique way to restore a missing tooth because they give you back a tooth as well as its root. With the stability and security provided by these devices, you enjoy all the benefits of a fully-functioning smile once again! . With dental implants, Dr. Bloom, Dr. Farber, Dr. Chu, and Dr. Meltzer can help you regain your teeth -- and your quality of life.

Dental Implant Placement
The treatment for dental implants is divided into two phases. The first part is the surgical placement procedure. Day Hill Dental’s in-house periodontist, Dr. Meltzer, implants the device into your bone in the space where there was a tooth. The dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions by bonding with the jawbone over 3-6 months -- a process known as osseointegration. By forming one solid unit, an osseointegrated implant screw provides a stable spot for your new tooth replacement. Once your implant and jawbone have bonded together, the second phase can begin: restoration of your dental implant.
Dental Implant Restoration
Phase two begins with taking an impression of your stabilized implant screw. This enables us to secure the small custom post (called an abutment) onto the top of your dental implant. This abutment is what we will place a brand new custom dental crown on, so you can have use of the area again. The restoration is perhaps the most exciting phase of the dental implant procedure, as it’s the one that gives you a new, complete smile. Patients who are dealing with one or more missing teeth in Windsor, Enfield, Suffield, Windsor Locks, Bloomfield and all surrounding areas are benefitting from dental implant placement and restoration completed under one roof at Day Hill Dental.
Implant Retained Prosthetics
There are many benefits to having your prosthetic teeth retained by dental implants:
- Unsurpassed stability of your denture.
- Improved oral health. Because dental implants provide the stimulation your jawbone needs to stay healthy, bone structure will not be lost where teeth are missing. This helps your jaw and facial profile stay youthful-looking.
- A better fit. Aside from being very uncomfortable, a prosthetic that slips around can actually make sores on your gums that are more likely to get infected. Dental implant-supported dentures, however, have a stabile fit and will not slide around causing these sores.
- The best investment you can make. Because your denture won’t need to be refitted to the changing shape of your mouth, dental implants are a worthwhile, long-term solution.
