Dr. Babushkin is

achieving optimal aesthetic results. As the only dentist in
Fairfield County that is board certified by the American Academy of
Cosmetic Dentistry, he and his associates are uniquely qualified to
provide patients with the best quality dental implant restorations
are a highly recommended, long lasting and durable solution to
replace missing teeth. Implants can also provide
afixedsolution to having removable partial or complete
denture and provide excellent support and stability for these
dental appliances. A titanium
implant is surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone and
then restored with a porcelain crown or crowns. The teeth attached
to implants are very natural looking and often enhance our patients
Here are some
examples of Dr. Babushkin's work...
This adult patient had
suffered a traumatic hockey accident as a child. His front tooth
was treated with a root canal and a crown.
The tooth recently fractured and required replacement with a dental
implant and crown.
Front tooth required
extraction due to a root fracture. It was replaced with a dental
implant and the space between the front teeth was closed with a
porcelain veneer on the other front tooth.
Reasons for dental implants:
Replace one or more missing teeth without
affecting adjacent teeth.
Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by
teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
Restore a patient’s confident smile.
Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
Restore or enhance facial tissues.
Support a bridge or denture, making them more
secure and comfortable.
What does getting dental implants
The process of getting implants requires a
number of visits over several months.
X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the
jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available
for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be
surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate
itself onto the bone for up to six months. Depending on the type
of implant, a second surgery may be required in order to place the
“post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. With
other implants the post and anchor are already attached and placed
at the same time.
After several weeks of healing the artificial
teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor.
Because several fittings may be required, this step may take one to
two months to complete. After a healing period, the artificial
teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent
stability and comfort to the patient.
You will receive care instructions when your
treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and
regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.
