Benefits of Dental Implants
Unlike any other tooth prosthetic, dental implants replace both the root and the crown. This allows you to enjoy the next best thing to your natural teeth. A titanium implant post is placed into your jawbone to act as a new root. Your custom-made restoration is attached to the post to fill the empty space in your smile. Together, they provide unmatched benefits, including:
- Over a 95% 10-year success rate.
- Regain as much as 70% of your biting force as you enjoy a stable foundation for your replacement tooth.
- Natural-looking results using all-ceramic material.
- Preserves your oral and facial structures by stimulating new bone growth in your jaw.
- Reduces your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and additional tooth loss.
- Long-term, cost-effective solution because it can last for several decades, so you never need to worry about having it replaced.
Indications of Dental Implants
Dental implants can be used to treat all cases of tooth loss if you have good oral and general health. They can be used as an alternative to a traditional bridge, partial, or denture. Depending on how many teeth you are replacing, your treatment process varies.
A biocompatible implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone. An abutment is attached to the post after your jaw has healed to connect a custom-made restoration.
Multiple Missing Teeth
One or two implant posts are inserted into the jaw to anchor your dental bridge. It is carefully crafted to match the appearance of your remaining teeth to blend in seamlessly when you smile.
Missing All Teeth
You never need to worry about any slipping or irritation again by using dental implants to secure your denture to your jaw. An average of 4 posts are used to replace the need for suction or an adhesive to restore your ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of the treatment is determined by your individual needs. Your dentist in Ellington provides you with a customized estimate during your consultation process. There are several factors that influence how much you can expect to pay, such as the number of teeth being treated and if you need any additional procedures.
We help you maximize the value of your dental insurance to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. We accept a variety of payment options to cover the remaining balance, including CareCredit.
