Dental Implants

Dental Implants Hartford CTThe loss of just one tooth can lead to a series of events that can seriously compromise your overall oral health. Surrounding teeth can shift into the space left by the missing tooth, and surrounding bone can start to deteriorate. Replacing missing teeth is important, and dental implants are one of the most effective options available today.

Dental implants require the placement of a titanium replacement root into your jaw. Dr. Chung’s experience with placing and restoring dental implants allows him to perform the entire procedure from start to finish here at our Hartford office.

Every case is different, but once the implant has been secured in the jawbone, healing usually takes several months. We’ll be able to give you a better estimate once we’re familiar with your specific case. Once the bone heals, we anchor a replacement tooth like a crown, bridge, or denture to the implant.

Dental implants have changed the way we look at tooth replacement. Dental implants are secure and durable and should be cleaned and cared for in the same way as your natural teeth. There’s a lot to consider when thinking about having a dental implant placed. We encourage you to contact our Hartford, CT dental office today at JP Dental! Our dedicated team is looking forward to helping you achieve your goals. 


Yes, there are actually a few alternatives to dental implants that can restore the look and function of your teeth. 

You can receive a prosthesis called a dental bridge. A dental bridge covers the missing space with crowns that are connected from either ends. The supporting teeth are called the abutments. The area covering the empty space is called the pontic. A dental bridge can cover any size of space. when the bridge gets longer, it may need more than two teeth from either end to support the dental bridge. 

Another option is a flipper. This prosthesis is removable. Although you can eat with it, eating may not be efficient because it isn't attached to any teeth in the mouth. It can certainly improve the smile as it fills up the empty space. 

However, implant is the best option out of all these choices. 

Here are the following reasons:

- It lasts longer or even lifetime.

- It can't get cavity. 

- It is more cosmetic.

- It doesn't destroy the adjacent teeth to support the prosthesis. 

- It is more maintainable. 

- It preserves the bone. 

- It boost your confidence when you smile because it looks so natural.
