Tooth loss occurs when one or more teeth come loose and fall out.  As a child, tooth loss is normal for baby teeth when replaced by adult teeth.  Aside from losing baby teeth, losing teeth, as you are older, is an undesirable result of injury or disease.  Also called edentulism, tooth loss can occur for the following reasons:
  • Poor oral hygiene habits
  • Poor diet
  • Bad habits, such as smoking
  • Lack of education about tooth loss
  • Fear and embarrassment
  • Finances
  • Trauma
  • Systemic conditions
  • Medical treatments
Replace Missing Teeth in West Hartford with Dental Implants
Over the past years, dental implants have increasingly grown in popularity as they are seen as an attractive alternative to missing teeth.  A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically attached to the jaw to secure a replacement tooth.  Permanent and stable, implant-supported restorations look, feel and function like natural teeth. 
Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for an implant and place the implant in the mouth.  Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for the bone tissue to build up and anchor the device.  In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect the tooth. 
Benefits of Dental Implants Explained
Dental implants are stronger and more durable than their restorative counterparts, such as crowns and bridges that are cemented into place, or dentures that are removable.  Dental implants also offer West Hartford patients:
  • Restore the mouth as closely as possible to its natural state
  • Preserve the integrity of facial structures
  • Improve your smile as they maintain a natural appearance
  • Do not compromise adjacent teeth to replace missing teeth
  • Improve overall quality of life
  • Offer convenient oral hygiene
  • Improve a person’s appearance
  • Restore self-esteem and offer renewed self-confidence
Implant patients are of all ages, and may be an appropriate solution for anyone missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or decay.  By visiting our West Hartford cosmetic dentist, we can determine if you are a candidate for dental implants after careful evaluation of your dental and medical history, in addition to the condition of your oral health.
