Dental Implant Restorations
Missing teeth can not only affect your ability to eat and speak naturally, but also make your smile look incomplete.
At Drs. Hadden and Whidden, LLC, our dentists can provide custom dental implant restorations to restore smiles affected by tooth loss.
Here's why patients from Vernon, CT, and Coventry are visiting our office for complimentary dental implant consultations...
3 Reasons Why Dental Implants Are the Best Treatment for Missing Teeth
Your Healthy Teeth Stay Intact
In order to place a traditional prosthetic such as a dental bridge, dentists need to resize and reshape healthy adjacent teeth. However, implants can be used to attach dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures directly to the jawbone so healthy teeth can stay intact.
Your Jawbone Is Protected
When you lose a tooth, your jawbone begins to recede in the area where tooth loss occurs. By acting as artificial tooth roots, implants can prevent this bone loss and keep your facial structure looking full and healthy.
The Results Can Last a Lifetime
Over the last several decades, implants have shown outstanding long-term success rates. Although you will need to replace your dental implant restoration every decade or so, your implants are likely to last a lifetime.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
During your complimentary consultation, our dentists will perform an in-depth dental exam to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. During this evaluation, we will assess:
To ensure the stability and long-term success of your implants, you will need a healthy amount of bone tissue in the treatment area. If you are lacking sufficient jawbone density, you may need to undergo a bone grafting or sinus lift procedure to restore your candidacy.
Prior to receiving dental implants, you will need to be in good oral health. If you have active tooth decay, gum disease, or tooth infection, our doctors will need to address these prior to beginning implant treatment. Because we offer comprehensive dentistry, we can address most oral health issues on-site.
Because dental implants are placed during a surgical procedure, you will need to be in good overall health prior to your implant placement. Our office will review your health history, list of medications, and lifestyle to rule out any risk factors that could interfere with the success of your surgery.
But Aren't Implant Restorations Expensive?
Many patients opt for traditional restorations rather than implant-supported restorations because they are nervous about the cost of treatment. To help patients from all financial backgrounds experience the unparalleled benefits of dental implants, our practice proudly accepts CareCredit®. CareCredit is a trusted third-party lender that offers flexible repayment options and low-interest rates to help you pay for your dentistry on any budget.
Dr. Whidden and all the staff in the Vernon office have been absolutely amazing. For years, I've been terrified of going to the dentist, and have had several bad experiences. Dr. Whidden made me feel so comfortable, and I couldn't be happier with the level of care my teeth and I have received! :) Thanks so much!!
I just had some bonding done by Dr.Whidden. He did a fantastic job and could not be happier. The staff was polite and professional.

Tips for Taking Care of Your New Teeth
At Drs. Hadden and Whidden, LLC, we are renowned for our restorative dentistry work, and our goal is to deliver restorations that are natural-looking and long-lasting.
Although you will need to replace your prosthetic every ten years or so, you can take measures to ensure the longevity of your results, including:
- Brushing twice each day and flossing daily
- Attending your biannual dental exams
- Refraining from smoking
- Abstaining from opening packages with your teeth or chewing on pens to avoid premature damage to your prosthetic
If your prosthetic becomes damaged, do not attempt to fix it yourself. Consult with one of our doctors to discuss the next steps.
