Dental ImplantsBranford, CT

Losing teeth goes beyond just affecting your smile’s aesthetics; it impacts your eating habits, self-confidence, and overall oral health. At PureSmilesCT, we are dedicated to restoring all of that and more, empowering you with a complete and healthy smile using advanced dental implants.

We invite you to visit our Branford, CT office to learn more about dental implants and how they can replace your missing teeth and restore your smile. We will work with you to develop a dental implant treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Benefits Of Dental Implants

Using dental implants to replace missing teeth offers our patients a number of benefits.

  • They look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
  • They help prevent bone loss, which is a natural effect of missing teeth.
  • They provide stability to surrounding teeth and keep them from shifting.
  • They preserve facial shape.
  • With proper care, they can last a lifetime.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are one of the most preferred methods for replacing teeth. Using a dental implant in the place of a missing tooth allows us to fill in the space and give you a complete smile.

The implant itself is a titanium screw that we place into the jaw bone in the space left behind by the missing tooth. Titanium is biocompatible, meaning that it will, over time, fuse with your jawbone and give us a stable and secure base for the rest of the restoration. The abutment fits onto the screw and connects the implant to the restoration, whether that’s a crown, bridge, or full-arch restoration. The number of missing teeth and their placement in your mouth helps us determine the best restoration for you.

Types Of Dental Implants

Our team can place single dental implants or replace an entire arch. During your initial appointment, we’ll do a thorough exam and even take images to help us determine which type of implant is best for you. With both implant options, the process takes multiple appointments over the course of many months, but rest assured that the end result is a smile that looks and feels great.

Single Tooth Replacement

This one-for-one replacement option allows us to place one implant in the spot left by one missing tooth. We use this dental implant type when you have a single missing tooth or a few teeth missing throughout your mouth. 

Full-Arch Replacement

When you’re missing most or all teeth in an arch—upper, lower, or both—we can use a few dental implants strategically placed in the mouth to support a full-arch replacement. With this replacement method, we place implants along your arch, often four or six. We then create a full prosthetic that connects to the implants, giving you a beautifully restored smile that feels strong and secure.

Something To Smile About

You deserve a smile that is full, healthy, and beautiful, and you shouldn’t let missing teeth keep you from that. At PureSmilesCT, we use dental implants to replace missing teeth and improve the look of your smile. Call us today to schedule an implant consultation.
