Teeth are remarkably strong, not just because of the enamel, but also because they are rooted in the jawbone, which provides a sturdy foundation. When a tooth is lost, most traditional replacements only restore the part of the tooth you can see. Therefore, such treatments are much less stable and reliable than natural teeth. Dental implants in Branford, on the other hand, bring back both a tooth’s crown as well as its root, providing a replacement that is almost as good as the real thing. At New Haven Dental Group, we may be able to fill in any gaps in your mouth using this one-of-a-kind solution. Unlike other dental offices in our area, we can perform every stage of the treatment in one convenient location.
No matter how many teeth you have lost, dental implants may be a viable treatment option. One of the following types of restorations might be ideal for you:
Instead of using a traditional fixed bridge to replace a single tooth (which requires us to modify the teeth surrounding the gap), we can place an implant-supported crown directly into the empty space without disturbing any of the remaining natural dentition.
While single implant crowns can be used to restore nonconsecutive missing teeth, just two dental implants can anchor a bridge that replaces up to four teeth in a row. This a conservative and cost-effective solution that delivers fantastic, long-lasting results.
If you are missing all or most of your teeth, or you are tired of your regular denture always slipping out of place, we can use 4 – 6 dental implants to support a prosthetic you never have to worry about. Implant dentures are much more secure than traditional ones, and you can trust their initial fit to endure for many years.
Dental implants have to be surgically placed into the jawbone. Most other dental offices must refer patients to expensive outside specialist to have this part of the dental implant procedure completed. At New Haven Dental Group, however, we are able to perform the entire implant treatment ourselves in-office. We thus save patients time, money, and stress while they undergo tooth replacement. With us, you will enjoy the peace of mind that comes with being able to work with the same doctor and team throughout your entire dental implant journey.
One of the best things about dental implants is that they are so versatile; they can be used to replace practically any number of teeth. Because of this, there is no set price for the treatment — it varies from patient to patient and depends on how many implants are needed as well as what kind of restoration is used. Before we begin treatment, we will go over all pricing information with you so there are never any unpleasant surprises.
While implants may cost a significant amount of money, we believe they are a worthwhile investment. In addition to offering better aesthetics and function than any other treatment, they are also extremely durable. Implants often last for 30 years or more — much longer than regular dentures and bridges, which normally need to be replaced every 5 – 7 years (the need for frequent replacement may even make traditional treatments more expensive than dental implants in the long run).
