When it comes to tooth loss, most of the focus tends to be on the cosmetic toll that missing teeth take on your smile and overall dental implantsappearance - and rightfully so. From self-esteem issues to professional opportunities, a damaged smile can impact your overall quality of life in many ways. But tooth loss can also have damaging effects behind the scenes (or gums, to be more accurate) which can ultimately hurt your oral health as well. The dentists at Family Dental Care in Rocky Hill, CT, Dr. Edward and Dr. Mary Pergiovanni recommend dental implants to improve your smile and oral health.

Dental Implants in Rocky Hill, CT

Implants do more than just restore basic function and the cosmetic appearance of your smile. Below the surface of your gums, bone tissue starts to erode as soon as a tooth falls out or gets extracted. While other dental restorations restore the crown portion of the tooth, implants are like a prosthetic root that anchors the crown permanently in place and helps to preserve and grow healthy new bone tissue, which is critical for your oral health.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Whether you have recently lost one or more teeth or have been living with missing teeth for years, dental implants offer a number of benefits for adult patients who qualify (must be in good general health, have sufficient bone density in the gums to support an implant, and the ability to commit to rigorous oral hygiene and follow up care with your dentist):

  • A new and improved smile
  • Healthier gums and potentially lower risk of gum disease
  • Convenience (dental implants are secure and permanent, once in place they do not have to be removed for cleaning or secured with adhesives)
  • High success rate
  • Closest dental restoration to your natural teeth
