Your teeth are extremely strong not just because of the enamel, but also because they are rooted in your jawbone, which provides a stable foundation. When a tooth goes missing, most replacement options only bring back the part of the tooth you can see, which inherently makes them much less sturdy and reliable than natural teeth. Tooth repalcement with dental implants in Woodbridge, CT, on the other hand, brings back both the crown and the root, imitating the structure of real teeth as closely as possible. At New Haven Dental Group in Woodbridge, we can fill in any gaps in your dental arches using the remarkable dental devices, and unlike other dental offices, we are able to perform every phase of the treatment right here in our dental office.
No matter how many teeth you are missing, dental implants may be a viable treatment option.
Instead of using a traditional bridge to replace a single missing tooth (which requires us to file down the teeth surrounding the gap), we can place an implant-supported crown directly into the empty space. Thus, we can preserve as much of the remaining dental structure as possible.
While single implant crowns can be used to restore nonconsecutive missing teeth, just two implants can help secure a bridge that replaces multiple teeth in a row. This is a conservative and cost-effective solution that delivers study, reliable results.
If you have suffered extensive tooth loss and are tired of your denture continually slipping out of place, we can use 4 – 6 dental implants to support a prosthetic you never have to worry about. Implant dentures not only have a much stronger hold compared to regular ones, but the initial fit can also be trusted to last for years at a time.
Dental implants have to be surgically placed into the jawbone, and with most other dental offices, they will refer you to an expensive outside specialist to have this procedure completed. At New Haven Dental Group, however, we are able to perform the entire implant treatment ourselves in-office. Thus, you can save patients time, money, and stress while you rebuild your lost teeth. With us, you will have the peace of mind of being able to work with the same team throughout your treatment.
One of the best parts about dental implants is that they are so versatile, as they can be used to replace any number of teeth. Because of this, there is not a set price for the treatment—it varies from patient to patient depending on how many implants are necessary and what kind of restoration is used. Before we begin treatment, we will go over all pricing information with you so there are never any surprises.
While implants are certainly a big investment, we believe they are more than worth the cost. In addition to having better aesthetics and function compared to other treatments, they are also extremely durable. Implants can be expected to last for 30 years or more — much longer than regular dentures and bridges that may need to be replaced every 5 – 10 years (which means they usually end up costing a patient more in the long-run).
