Dr. Thomas Livingstone, general and cosmetic dentist at Livingstone Dental Excellence in Canaan, CT is helping adult patients with missing, failing, or broken teeth find a solution that once again provides a permanent, natural-looking tooth. With permanent dental implants, Dr. Livingstone can give patients a replacement for their missing teeth that looks, feels, and performs just like a natural tooth.
Dental implants are some of the latest technology available for restorative dentistry, and have already helped millions of adults finally get the look and function from their smile that they desire. Dental implants can be used to replace one singular missing tooth, or in the case of denture patients, can be used to replace entire top and bottom arches of teeth.
“Dental implants have been life changing in every sense of the word for our patients who previously suffered from missing teeth,” said Dr. Livingstone. “Not only do these implants restore function to their smile again, but the whole demeanor of our patients change when they feel like they can smile again without being self-conscious.”
Dental implants involve two main elements that allow them to function like a natural tooth. The implant itself is a small metal stud, or screw, that is surgically inserted into the patient’s jawbone in the void of the permanent tooth or teeth. This implant is given several weeks to heal as it also naturally fuses to the jawbone. Once healed, Dr. Livingstone then attaches a custom-made crown to the implant that is the proper shape, shade, and size that the patient desires. Once completed, the implant is just as strong—or in some cases, even stronger—than a natural tooth and can be cleaned just like a natural tooth as well.
Beyond placing implants, Dr. Livingstone offers a variety of other dental services to help patients get the best smile possible. Dr. Livingstone and his staff offer cosmetic dentistry like porcelain veneers, metal-free crowns, Lumineers, tooth-colored fillings, and teeth whitening, as well as other services such as treatment for TMJ, invisible braces, gum care, and more.
Dr. Livingstone has been practicing dentistry for nearly 40 years. As one of the most experienced dental professionals in the Canaan, CT area, Dr. Livingstone regularly contributes to the Sharon, Connecticut NPR station for the program entitled “Ask the Dentist.” Dr. Livingstone regularly gives back to the local community by providing free dental care through several organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, Volunteers in Medicine, and Give Kids A Smile. He is a member of several professional dental organizations, and has received numerous awards, accolades, and accreditations throughout his four decades in the profession.
