Benefits of Dental Implants
The biggest benefit of choosing dental implants is their valuable, lasting advantages regarding oral health. Unlike more traditional services, the implant starts by replacing the tooth’s natural root, which is well-hidden beneath the gum tissue. Without a functioning tooth root in place, the jawbone is likely to weaken and deteriorate over time, which can increase a patient’s risk of additional tooth loss and damage their physical appearance as well. Implants help preserve this important structure well into the future for the sake of your overall wellbeing and quality of life. Other benefits include:
- Your new “tooth” will be virtually seamless from the original in terms of form, function, and cosmetic appearance.
- Remaining healthy tooth structure will be better preserved – no damaging alterations required.
- The longevity of dental implants is unparalleled; they’re meant to last for decades!
Indications for Dental Implants
Whether you’re struggling with a single gap in your smile or an entire missing arch, dental implants may be the right solution. Take a look below to learn more about how Dr. Cohen restores capable, confident dental structure for patients all across the spectrum:
Missing a Single Tooth
Individual implants can be paired with all-ceramic dental crowns for a beautifully lifelike replacement that will fit right in alongside natural teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, this modern technique won’t require healthy dental structure to be negatively altered.
Missing Multiple Missing Teeth
While implant-retained crowns can be secured in several places throughout the place, implant-retained bridges may be the better option in cases where several missing teeth were located next to one another. Dr. Cohen will place just two dental implants – one on either side of gap. The implants will function as “anchors” that hold the full prosthetic safely in place, allowing for full function and stability.
Missing All of Your Teeth
Implant-retained dentures provide a cost-effective solution to more extensive tooth loss – instead of having to replace each missing tooth with its own personal dental implant, we can place a full, highly lifelike prosthetic over a small number of strategically implanted posts for the same high level of confidence and durability.
As a Fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (one of the highest honors for doctors who place dental implants), Dr. Cohen’s expertise in the Trumbull community is truly second to none. He’ll be happy to personally guide you through every stage of rebuilding strong, attractive teeth with dental implants right here in his practice – no outside specialists or tedious extra travel time required.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants closely mimic the natural structure of teeth because of each component used to replicate a tooth. A biocompatible implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to act as a new root. A special fixture called an abutment is attached to it to connect your custom-made crown. The number of posts and the type of restoration used varies depending on how many teeth you are replacing. Dr. Cohen carefully explains the treatment process and answers your questions during your consultation, so you can feel confident in your decision to replace your missing teeth.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Determining the cost of a dental implant procedure is a more complicated question than most patients realize at first. This transformative process has multiple components to it, including:
- The surgical placement of the dental implant or implants
- The addition of an abutment (connector) that secures the restoration to the implant(s)
- The design and creation of a customized, implant-retained dental restoration (crown, bridge, denture, etc)
As a first step, Dr. Cohen will want to welcome patients in for a dedicated consultation regarding their specific smile needs and goals. After assessing your oral health, our team can devise confident estimates for the overall cost. Please keep in mind that while implants are certainly an investment, the benefits will be more than worth it – this tooth replacement solution is designed to last for several decades or even a lifetime, while more traditional options will very likely require costly repair and replacement over time.
