Why Choose Cappello Family Dental for Dental Implants?

What is a Dental Implant?

An implant is a titanium post that mimics the roots of your teeth. Titanium is a biocompatible metal; once it is in the jaw, it will start to fuse with the nearby tissue in a process called osseointegration. This turns the implant into a permanent fixture in your mouth that feels both comfortable and natural. An implant can support a crown or another type of restoration that replaces one or more teeth in an arch.

Benefits of Dental implants

Dental implants in Trumbull are considered the gold standard of tooth replacement. Because they rebuild lost teeth from the roots up, they offer benefits that non-implant treatment options cannot measure up to. For example, they can provide a strong bite force and promote jawbone health. If you would like to learn how they can benefit you personally, contact us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cappello.

Lifestyle Benefits

According to one survey, 34% of denture wearers say that dentures limit their ability to live life to the fullest. If you can relate to them, dental implants may be the solution you have been hoping for. Some of the lifestyle benefits they offer include:

  • The ability to eat most foods. There are very few foods that are off-limits with dental implants. Most types of implant treatments enable patients to dig into that crisp salad or hearty steak without worrying that their new teeth will become destabilized.
  • A confident smile. Implant-supported restorations are custom-designed to complement a patient’s unique facial features. Your implant dentist in Trumbull will make every effort to ensure that your new smile is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
  • Speak easily. Ill-fitting dentures may slip out of place during eating and speaking, but implant restorations are designed to stay put for the long haul. Whether you are giving a boardroom presentation or enjoying a social outing, the chances that your new teeth will disappoint you are next to nothing.

Health Benefits

The benefits of dental implants in Trumbull extend beyond improving everyday quality of life. They offer some health advantages, including:

  • Jawbone preservation. Following tooth loss, the bone at the site of a missing tooth begins to be resorbed. Over time, the resorption can reach the point where the jawbone is noticeably smaller, which can affect facial shape. Dental implants help to stimulate the jawbone and keep it as whole and strong as possible.
  • Protection for natural teeth. When you lose a tooth, the adjacent teeth may begin to drift out of place. Implants serve as a placeholder so you can maintain a well-aligned bite.
  • No need to modify the remaining natural teeth. A traditional fixed bridge requires that the abutment teeth be filed down in order to fit beneath crowns. Implants are self-supporting, so in most cases, placing them doesn’t require that any of the nearby natural teeth be altered.
  • Systemic health benefits. Tooth loss has been associated with an increased risk of several diseases. As the next best thing to natural teeth, it doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to think that dental implants can help to lower suck risks.

Long-Term Benefits

Dental implants are designed to permanently replace teeth. In most cases, they accomplish that goal. In fact, they boast a 90 – 95% success rate even 10 years after placement. Plus, their longevity makes them an excellent monetary value. Over the course of a few decades, they may be even cheaper than non-implant tooth replacement options, such as dentures, that need to be replaced every 5 – 10 years or so.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

That’s a question we can only answer once we’ve had the chance to thoroughly examine your mouth. We need to confirm that the bone structure is strong enough to hold a dental implant. Also, your gums need to still be healthy and safe for treatment; gum disease and other infections typically lead to implant failure. Potential complications will be dealt with before the implant surgery.

You can consider having dental implants placed in any of the following circumstances:

Missing Single Tooth

A single dental implant can be placed in the gap where missing tooth originally was. Once the mouth has healed around the implant, a crown is created and anchored to it. Using an implant-retained crown means we don’t have to remove enamel from nearby teeth for a dental bridge.

Missing Multiple Teeth

When missing a few or several teeth in a row, some patients are afraid that they’ll have to get multiple implants to replace each and every single one of them. Instead, we can use a pair of implants to support a dental bridge to fill in the entire space at once.

Missing All Teeth

Even patients who are facing life without any natural teeth can get dental implants. In many cases, a full denture can be anchored to as little as four dental implant posts. Implant dentures don’t have to be removed at night, and they can be brushed and flossed as though they were real teeth.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

There is no universal price for the dental implant procedure. It’s different for every patient based on their circumstances. The number of implant posts, the need for preparatory procedures, and the current state of your oral health all need to be considered. Getting implants is a long-term investment; not only will you enjoy the benefits for decades to come, but since the implants are less likely to need to be replaced over time, you’ll save time and money in the long run.
