The Gold Standard in Tooth Replacement

We offer a number of treatments that can replace missing teeth. However, we always recommend that our patients opt for dental implants if possible. Dental implants rebuild teeth from the roots up and thus provide the most natural-feeling and natural-looking way to restore full dental function. At Comprehensive Dental Associates of Central Connecticut, we are proud to be able to provide complete dental implant services. Contact us today to learn how dental implants in our East Hartford, CT dental office may be able to benefit you.

Why Choose Comprehensive Dental Associates of Central Connecticut for Dental Implants?

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small cylinder (sometimes called a post) that acts as a substitute tooth root. After it gets placed in the jawbone, it fuses with the tissue around it via a process called osseointegration. It thus becomes a sturdy base for the crown, bridge, or denture that will replace the visible portion of the lost dentition. Dental implants are usually made out of a titanium alloy, which is extremely durable and biocompatible.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Here are just a few of the reasons why dental implants are the best tooth replacement solution that modern dentistry has to offer:

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Dental implants are a versatile treatment that is able to address any level of tooth loss. Whether you need to fill in a small gap or replace all of your teeth, they may be an appropriate solution for you.

Missing One Tooth

For single tooth replacement, we insert one dental implant into the jawbone during a minimally invasive surgery. After osseointegration (the process of the implant bonding with the tissue around it), we place a custom crown on top of the implant to replace the visible portion of the lost tooth.

Missing Multiple Teeth

If your missing teeth are all adjacent to one another, we will likely recommend that you receive an implant-supported bridge. This type of restoration is similar to a traditional bridge. However, instead of requiring the support of your natural teeth, an implant-supported bridge is anchored in the jawbone via a few strategically placed dental implants.

Missing All of Your Teeth

We can replace an entire arch of lost teeth with just a handful of dental implants, which we will place at precise, pre-planned positions throughout the jawbone. The denture that goes on top of the implants may be removable, or we may permanently screw it into place.

Start to Finish Convenience

Many dental offices have to coordinate dental implant care with outside specialists. In particular, they may find it necessary to refer patients elsewhere for the implant placement surgery. However, our team is different. We have all of the experience and expertise necessary to perform the entire dental implant procedure, from the initial consultation all the way to the final restoration. We are diligent to make sure that you receive top-quality care at every stage of your implant journey.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Every patient is unique, which means that every dental implant treatment is unique. The cost of your procedure will depend on a number of factors, including the extent of any preparatory work (such as extractions or bone grafts), the number of teeth we are replacing, and the nature of your final restoration. During your consultation, we will strive to provide you with an accurate, easy-to-understand estimate of the costs associated with your treatment plan.

We will also help you explore various resources that may help you to afford dental implants. For example, your dental insurance may cover at least a part of one stage of the treatment. For patients without insurance, we have a savings plan. Many individuals are also candidates for affordable financing through CareCredit.

Although dental implants present a significant upfront cost, the many benefits they offer make them a worthwhile investment. Plus, their outstanding longevity may make them even cheaper in the long run than prosthetics that need to be replaced every few years.
