It’s Never Too Late to Rejuvenate Your Smile with Dental Implants in Ridgefield
Dental implants have become one of the most popular methods to replace one or multiple missing teeth. If you have any missing teeth, you may have a hard time smiling freely around friends, family, and social events. With the help of Dr. Ritzcovan, we can begin your smile transformation with our dental implants in Ridgefield, CT.
This restorative procedure has completely rejuvenated smiles of all ages for years and years, for patients of all ages, and you could be next. In this procedure, there is a titanium post acting as the root of your tooth that is surgically fused with your jawbone. This will be the anchor for the natural-looking false tooth/crown that’s placed on top. After proper healing, this dental implant will look and feel just like the rest of your teeth. This procedure is not only for replacing one individual tooth but can replace multiple teeth and has become a popular alternative option to dentures.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
This advanced procedure may be the right choice for patients who have lost their teeth due to injury, dental disease, or dental decay. Like we mentioned, this is also a great replacement choice as opposed to uncomfortable removable dentures. There are different kinds of implants and, depending on your current oral health, Dr. Ritzcovan will discuss which option is best for you. After a careful evaluation of your dental and medical history, we’ll be able to see what’s the next best step.
What are the Advantages of Dental Implants?
When looking into dental implants, one of the most important concerns that patients have is to ensure their smile looks the same as it used to so no one can tell the difference. Thankfully, that’s one of the easiest areas to address! The crowns that are placed at the top of the titanium post are created to look, feel and act like your surrounding teeth. When you smile, you’ll be able to smile without a care in the world.
Patients will also have an easier time eating, speaking, and keeping up with their oral hygiene routine. Ill-fitting dentures make things difficult, so your speech patterns can change over time, as well as your eating habits. If your dentures don’t fit, your speech sounds mumbled and slurred. You’ll have difficulty chewing and enjoying your favorite foods, or you may not be able to enjoy those foods anymore.
Because our Ridgefield dental implants are just like your natural teeth, your speech habits stay the same and you’re able to return to your favorite meals!
If you’re missing one tooth or multiple teeth, everything within your mouth is thrown off. Because your teeth surround and support each other, they’ll be “off-balance” and start shifting to accommodate the missing space. If your dental alignment changes, you’re at a higher risk for cavities, decay, dental disease, and other issues.
