When it comes to quality, you can trust Quality Dental Care in Bennington for your dental implant needs. As a full-service dental practice, we not only restore implants, but we place them as well. This allows us to provide complete dental implant treatment from start to finish without having to refer you to a specialist.
What is an implant?
Dental implants are replacement teeth, made of metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow our doctors to mount replacement teeth (crowns) onto them.
Dental implants are known for their versatility. If you are missing a single tooth, a single implant can replace it. If you are missing several teeth, an implant can stabilize a permanent bridge or partial denture. Dental implants outshine all other dental restorations in providing improved speech, comfort, eating, and oral health, along with increased durability and aesthetics.
If you and our doctors decide that dental implants are right for you, your first visit will involve placing the implant and doing any bone grafts if necessary. The healing time after implant placement averages four to six months, after which you’ll return to our office and have an impression taken for your crown. When your crown is complete, our doctors will attach it to the post, and your new tooth will be finished.
Implant Home Care
Caring for teeth restored with dental implants is just like caring for your natural teeth: brush, floss, and maintain regular dental cleanings and checkups at our Bennington dental office. Our doctors and our team may recommend additional cleaning aids to help you keep your teeth healthy at home.
