You have several options to replace missing teeth and create a stunning smile, but they are not all equal.
Only dental implants can restore smiles and prevent the jawbone deterioration that introduces new dental woes.
The Offices of John G. Fatse, DMD, in Monroe, CT, excel at placing dental implants that create smiles you love and protect dental health.
Why Are Dental Implants the Preferred Treatment for Missing Teeth?
Traditional tooth replacement methods look like teeth, but they lack a crucial feature: tooth roots. This hidden part of your natural tooth stimulates the jawbone, preventing it from wasting away. Without stimulation, the jawbone recedes and more teeth can be lost.
A dental implant, which is a titanium post inserted into your jaw, is an artificial root that encourages bone growth and keeps your jaw strong. It also supports the natural-looking tooth restoration that fills the gap in your smile and gives you the strong bite that allows you to eat the food you enjoy.

Have You Been Told You Are Ineligible for Implants?
Mini Dental Implants May Be an Option If You Lack Bone Density
One of the downsides of missing teeth is the accompanying loss of bone density in the jaw. Without enough bone, you may not be able to support a traditional dental implant. If this is the problem you face, there may be an alternative: mini dental implants.
Mini dental implants, which are made of titanium, are similar to traditional ones, just smaller. They are about the diameter of a toothpick, which makes them small enough to fit where a traditional implant can't. In addition to not requiring as much bone density, mini implants are less expensive and the procedure is less invasive, which makes recovery faster.
New Implant Material Offers
Hope for High-Risk Patients
In addition to titanium implants, we offer Trabecular Metal™ Dental Implants, which have been shown to speed up bone formation and healing.
In some cases, final restorations can be placed in as little as two weeks as compared to the months required with titanium implants.
Trabecular Metal Dental Implants are giving new hope to patients whose risk factors, such as diabetes or cancer treatments, have made them ineligible for conventional implants.
Trabecular implants may also be an option for people who have experienced implant failure with standard implants.

Professional and friendly. Hygienist Melissa was a real pro, concerned about my comfort, explained each part of her process and made sound suggestions for improving my dental health. Dr John Fatse also did an excellent job analyzing/diagnosing a new patient and communicating needed procedure. Much more comfortable when you are in the company of actual professionals.Read More Reviews
