Once our patients have made the important decision to fix their missing or damaged teeth at Torrington Dental Care, their natural-looking replacement teeth will be made up of three separate parts; the fixture piece, the abutment piece and the crown or replacement tooth. These three parts are installed in five easy steps at Dr. Kuzmin’s Torrington, CT office:
Step 1: Patients will first undergo a comprehensive examination to check oral health, jawbone condition, and tooth placement.
Step 2: The next step involves a surgical procedure where the artificial root called a fixture is implanted directly and permanently into the jawbone.
Step 3: This step involves attaching a middle piece called an abutment, to the fixture piece that is attached to the jawbone.
Step 4: During this stage your doctor will carefully craft the replacement tooth to precisely match the texture, shape and color of your real teeth.
Step 5: In the final stage, Dr. Kuzmin will connect the crown or artificial tooth to the abutment piece. Once all pieces have healed properly, you can enjoy your beautiful new smile!
When you choose dental implants from Torrington Dental Care you gain many exceptional benefits. Here are some of those benefits:
Although it is rare, there are some risks associated with the installation of dental implants. The procedure itself can increase the chances of issues like: soreness, sinus problems, infection, pain, nerve damage, tissue or blood vessel damage, dental implant failure, swelling of the face and sensitivity in the mouth area. However, since dental implants have a success rate of around 95%, the minor risks associated with dental implant surgery are often outweighed by the benefits. In many instances, Dr. Kuzmin can prescribe medication to reduce symptoms or reduce most of the problems caused by your dental implant installation.
Patients considering who are considering dental implant should know the facts before they proceed. And while it is true that there are some risks to getting dental implants, after seeing the exceptional results of dental implants from Torrington Dental Care, most patients say that the benefits more than make up for the risks.
