Life-Changing Benefits of Dental Implants

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a post that replaces the missing root of a tooth. The artificial root fuses with the bone tissue and becomes a permanent part of the jawbone.  After the surgery, an abutment and custom-crafted dental prosthetic are attached to the implant, restoring the entire structure of the tooth.
While we offer traditional tooth restoration methods like dentures and bridges at our Hamden practice, dental implants are an increasingly sought-after solution for our patients in the greater New Haven, CT, region.

Optimal Implant Results With Cutting-Edge Technology

Our Hamden practice ensures the highest quality implant treatment by relying on digital dentistry. Digital dentistry replaces traditional dental tools with superior computer-based technology to improve the precision and safety of your procedure. Learn more about the technology we are equipped with at our state-of-the-art office.

Cone Beam Imaging

Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a type of digital X-ray that takes precise images of your teeth and bone structure. During a CBCT scan the machine rotates around your head, compiling a 3D picture of your musculoskeletal system. Within seconds we can diagnose any existing dental conditions and carefully plan your implant procedure.

Surgical Guides

Surgical guides are custom-made components that maximize the accuracy and safety of implant surgery. The surgical guide fits into your mouth and contains strategically placed holes indicating the optimal position for each implant. This reduces the chance of complications and speeds up the length of the implant placement procedure.

What to Expect During Your Implant Procedure

Our dentists can often perform all the steps of your dental implant procedure in a single appointment at our Hamden practice.

Our practice uses surgical guides during implant placement procedures to reduce the risk of complications.

Anesthesia

We will begin by administering local anesthesia to numb your mouth and ensure your comfort.

Implants

Next, your dentist will make incisions in the gums and carefully insert the implant posts into the jaw.

Abutments

When the implants are secure, we will attach small connector parts known as abutments to the top of each post.

Restoration

Finally, your temporary crown, bridge, or denture will be secured, and the first phase of your treatment will be complete.

Completing
Your Treatment

/

When you leave our office after your implant procedure you will have a fully functional set of teeth. However, we must wait until you recover to complete the final steps of your treatment. Over the next few months, your implants will fuse to your jawbone in a process known as osseointegration. When osseointegration is complete we can confidently design a permanent crown, bridge, or denture that fits the precise dimensions of your jaw.

Can You Believe They Are Not Natural Teeth?

Pictured below is one of our real New Haven–area patients who received dental implant-supported restorations. 

Before Implants
Before Implants The patient suffered from complete tooth loss in their upper dental arch, as well as several missing and decayed teeth in their lower dental arch.
After Implants
After Implants Once the implants healed, we secured custom dental restorations that look virtually indistinguishable from the patient's natural teeth. 

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

office

Since dental implants are priced individually, the cost of your treatment is mainly determined by the number of teeth you need to have replaced. While insurance plans often include benefits for your crown, bridge, or denture, they typically do not cover the cost of the implants themselves. However, our practice is happy to offer flexible financing to help keep treatment costs as affordable as possible. We will also work directly with your insurance provider to make sure you get the most coverage from your plan. If you are interested in getting a personal cost estimate for your implant treatment, please request a consultation with your dentist at our Hamden, CT, office today.

Are Implants Worth It?

Smiling Couple

It is important to understand that dental implants are an investment. While their up front costs are more expensive than traditional tooth restoration options, they pay off in several ways down the road. First, by preventing bone recession implants can save you from developing serious oral health problems and needing expensive future treatment. Certain implant-supported restorations like dentures also last longer than their traditional counterparts, and will need far fewer replacements over the course of a lifetime.

Most of our patients would agree that regardless of the long-term savings, the comfort and convenience of dental implants make them well worth the cost in the end.
