What your dentist in Norwich, Connecticut, wants you to knowdental implants

You’ve probably already heard about dental implants. The truth is dental implants are the best solution available to replace missing teeth. If you are missing teeth, you may have become used to an incomplete smile, and that may be a mistake.

Living without teeth causes your jaws to lose bone, resulting in you looking older than you actually are. Your face may begin to sag and lose youthful fullness and contours. Dr. Edward Yates at Norwich Aesthetic Dentistry in Norwich, Connecticut, wants to share why dental implants are an important choice for you.

A younger-looking face isn’t the only reason why dental implants are a great choice. When you choose dental implants, you will experience:

  • Natural-looking tooth replacement because implants look just like your natural teeth
  • Stable tooth replacement because implants are placed in bone and the bone fills in around the implant, locking it in place
  • Healthy tooth replacement because you can brush and floss dental implants just like your natural teeth, keeping your teeth and gums healthy
  • Worry-free tooth replacement because your new dental implants will never decay and they are stain resistant too
  • Successful tooth replacement because dental implants have a success rate of over 95%, according to the American Academy of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Your dental implants will be placed during a simple procedure done right in the office. During the healing period, the bone will grow around and fuse with the dental implant, securing it firmly in place. After the area has healed, Dr. Yates will cap the implant with a sparkling implant crown.

You can choose dental implants to replace a single, or multiple missing teeth, or to provide support for a denture, which is snapped in place over the implants. For more detailed information about dental implants, please visit the dental implants page on the website at
