Implant Dentistry Prevents Problems Associated with Missing Teeth
Implant Dentistry is a safe, effective, and wonderful option for those who seek to improve their smile. And, while implant dentistry provides the means to remedy missing teeth, it serves a greater purpose above and beyond producing a beautiful cosmetic outcome. Did you know that when teeth are missing a number of potential problematic issues can occur? Today, modern implants are stronger than ever, match the look and feel of natural teeth, and most importantly—serve as an effective and vital preventative dental option.
Aside from the aesthetic issues associated with missing teeth, there are other concerns that affect the function and health of the teeth and gums. When there are vacancies in the mouth due to a lost tooth or several teeth, the following health conditions can develop:
- Surrounding teeth can shift due to an open space
- Misalignment in the jaw, leading to TMJ and other similar painful and uncomfortable issues
- Disproportionate bite, again from a shift in the alignment of the jaw
- Extra pressure to the joints of the remaining teeth to compensate for missing teeth
- Troubles with eating and speaking
To ensure that you don’t experience any of the previously mentioned issues, Dr. Anatoliy Ravin will help to guide you through a variety of dental implant options.
Finding the Perfect Dental Implant Option For Your Specific Needs
Implant dentistry, also referred to as restorative dentistry offers patients multiple options for natural-looking, comfortable, and lasting solutions. As a destination practice for comprehensive implant dentistry, Hospital Dental Group (HDG) in Hartford, CT and surrounding areas has a host of dental implant options, including:
- Single Implants
- Double Implants and a Bridge
- Implants with Locators
- Relining Dentures
- Complete Reconstruction

A dental implant serves as an anchor for a natural-looking tooth replacement. Many people wonder if the process of the implant placement affects surrounding teeth. The answer is no! Provided your surrounding teeth are healthy, treatment won’t disrupt them at all.
Five Fantastic Benefits of Dental Implants
We’ve already mentioned that dental implants are “natural-looking,” but what are the full benefits beyond protecting the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw?
- Maximum Dental Health ROI
Will insurance cover dental implants? Aren’t they expensive? At HDG we will always work to find you the most affordable method of payment, so you can check that off your worry list! It’s important to recognize that by opting for dental implants to replace missing teeth, you will avoid some of the most potentially costly, continuing, and extensive future dental treatments to correct serious dental problems.
- Effective, Safe, and Long Lasting
The full process of dental implants typically requires several visits, but did you know that once this safe procedure is complete it offers patients a 95-percent success rate? Once you complete the two-step process of root implantation followed by crown placement, you will enjoy a secure and lasting replacement for a missing tooth.
- Strong and Reliable
While dental implants can be counted on for years to come, so can their strength and reliability. Dr. Ravin can take small dental implants and surgically place them into the jawbone, becoming the new root. Over time, the implants and jawbone fuse, creating a solid foundation for your new tooth.
- Accommodating to Your Lifestyle
One of the most frustrating aspects of missing teeth is the prospect of disrupting the most mundane of routines. Things we take for granted like chewing and speaking can become altered as a result of a missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants make sure that life can proceed like “business as usual.”
- Confident Smile, Confident YOU!
Not only do dental implants mimic the look at feel of real teeth, they often appear even whiter, brighter, and even more beautiful!
