So What Is a Dental Implant?

First, a titanium implant is placed within the jaw, where it fuses to bone and replaces the missing dental root. The post is then capped with a small connector piece known as an abutment. Finally, we secure your implant-supported restoration to the abutment to complete your smile. 

Candidates for Dental Implants

While dental implants have given many of our patients in the greater Wilton area life-changing results, treatment is not right for everyone. In order to qualify for dental implants, patients must:

Have Sufficient Bone Density

A dense jawbone is crucial for the success of dental implant treatment. If long-term tooth loss has caused bone recession, we may recommend a bone graft. In that case, we can recommend you to a trusted oral surgeon. 

Be Non-Smokers

Smoking and the use of other tobacco products will increase your risk of complications during implant treatment. If you currently smoke, you will need to quit several months before undergoing implant surgery and refrain from smoking throughout the duration of your treatment. 

Be In Good Health

In order to receive dental implants, you must be healthy enough to undergo oral surgery. If you suffer from certain medical conditions like heart disease, uncontrolled diabetes, or auto-immune disorders, you might be at higher risk for implant failure.

Dental Implant Treatment Timeline

While dental implants involve a lengthier procedure than traditional tooth replacement methods, most patients at our Wilton office find the long-term benefits well worth the wait.

Implants

Treatment begins with a surgical procedure to place the dental implants into the jawbone. Dr. Arbuckle can refer you to a trusted doctor for this portion of your implant treatment. We will provide a custom surgical guide to ensure precise placement.

Osseointegration

​Over the next three to six months, the implants fuse to your jaw in a process known as osseointegration. It is crucial to practice good oral hygiene throughout this time to ensure you heal properly.

Abutments

Once osseointegration is complete, you will return to the oral surgeon for a second minor procedure. During this visit, the doctor will expose the implants and secure abutments to each post. 

Prosthetic Design

Our practice uses the latest dental technology, including digital impressions, to design your prosthetic teeth. This information is then sent to our partner dental lab where skilled technicians hand-craft the restoration.

Tooth Restoration

When your restoration is ready and your gums have healed from the abutment procedure, you will return to our Wilton, CT, practice for the final step. Our dentist will inspect your implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture and make sure it is up to our high standards. After making any necessary adjustments, we attach the prosthetic teeth to the dental implants and your treatment is complete. 

Are Implants Covered By Insurance?

Generally, no. While your crown, bridge, or denture might be, implants themselves are not. We accept many types of dental insurance and will coordinate directly with your provider to get you the most coverage possible.

Our Wilton office strives to keep costs fair and affordable. We also offer flexible financing through CareCredit®, allowing patients to better manage the remaining out-of-pocket treatment costs. Keep in mind that with proper hygiene and checkups, implants can last a lifetime and substantially improve your quality of life.

Took me a lifetime to find a great dentist to actually enjoy going to. I will not dare go anywhere else. Always a great experience from the positive vibe of the professionals at the front and great care by each hygienist. Dr Rob also finds the best options for you always. He cares about his patients! Been going here for a few years strong and more to come! Makes my 40 minute commute worth it!

From the start to the finish, my first visit to Wilton Dental Care was precisely what I had hoped for. Upon arrival I felt welcomed and quickly felt relaxed. The staff are efficient and friendly; the dental assistant and hygienist were both well-versed in their skills and gentle. Dr. Arbuckle has put together a wonderful team and I can tell he leads by example. I am recommending them to my family, friends, and anyone who wants an excellent dentist!
