In the past, dentures and bridges were the only way to replace missing teeth. These days, patients and dentists of Hartford, CT choose dental implants as the preferred tooth-replacement solution. Dental implants by a skilled Hartford area dentist, like Dr. Ravin, restore function, preserve bone health, and provide a naturally beautiful appearance.
Dental implants are a direct replacement for the missing tooth and tooth root. Small dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, becoming the new root. Over time, the implants and jawbone will fuse, creating a solid foundation for your new tooth. Once this fusion is complete, an abutment will be placed on the implant, where a beautiful porcelain crown will be attached. The end result is a sturdy tooth or set of teeth that will look and feel as natural as the teeth you were born with.
Dental implants are as close to a natural, healthy tooth as any dentist can get. In fact, many of our patients find implants to be indistinguishable from their natural teeth! Plus, implants are the most stable and natural-looking tooth replacement option. With modern cosmetic dentistry materials, your dental implant will look incredibly lifelike, restoring confidence in your smile.

Tooth loss affects confidence as well as the oral health of the mouth and remaining teeth. In the past there were few options to regain tooth function and appearance in a natural way. Now all tooth loss solutions – bridges, dentures and dental implants – offer Hartford area patients amazing results, through advances in dental technology.
The entire dental implant process can take up to a few months, but offers a 95% success rate–making the results worth the treatment time! Our Hartford area dental implant patients go through this two-step process:
- First, Dr. Ravin places an implant root form into your jaw right in the Hospital Dental Group office. Over a few months, the implant root integrates with the surrounding bone. This is what makes the implant so sturdy.
- After the implant root form and bone have healed, the process is completed when Dr. Ravin restores the crown, securing it to the implant root form embedded in the jaw. The result? A breath-taking new tooth!
Some dental restorations are like replacing a few boards in a fence. Full mouth rehabilitation is giving the fence a whole, new frame, foundation and boards. The end result of this comprehensive process is a smile that functions the way it should and looks great! It can restore a mouth that is struggling with severe decay, trauma or unappealing orthodontics back to it’s youthful, dazzling beauty.
