Dental Implants

Most patients qualify for dental implants with no problem. In some cases, however, if you have experienced significant bone loss, you may require a bone graft to create a stable enough foundation to hold your dental implant securely in place.

In some cases, patients may have other biological landmarks, such as sinuses, that can interfere with dental implant placement. We work with some of the best oral surgeons in our area to make sure you get the best care possible and that you have the greatest chance of success with dental implants.

With today’s dental technology, the latest in treatment, and the skills of our dentists and specialists, you are in good hands when it comes to replacing missing teeth with dental implants. 

Dental implants remain the best way to replace missing teeth because they have numerous health benefits. In addition to their natural appearance, they help to retain your bone, which supports your remaining teeth and facial structure. They also keep your natural teeth from shifting after tooth loss. Shifting teeth can cause problems with your bite.

If you have questions about whether you might be a good candidate for dental implants, contact our Naugatuck, CT dental office and schedule an evaluation with Dr. Almeida or Dr. Tannenbaum. We can help you determine the best course of treatment to improve your health and protect your smile.
