Dental Implants in Milford & West Haven, Connecticut

Dental implants are dental restorations used to replace lost or severely damaged teeth. This surgical procedure helps to restore the look and function of your smile and helps to preserve the jawbone. Dental implants look and feel just like your natural teeth and can be used to replace one tooth or all of your teeth and give you a beautiful smile.

Benefits of Dental Implant Treatment

Prevents Bone Loss

When you lose a tooth, your jawbone can begin to deteriorate if you do not replace it with a dental implant. A dental implant provides similar stimulation to the jaw bone that a natural tooth root does and keeps the jaw bone healthy.

Restores Your Smile

Dental implants restore your smile back to its original state before you lost any teeth. The implants function as your new tooth roots and provide a stable foundation for your replacement teeth.

Looks and Feels Natural

Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants are made to look and feel just as natural as your own teeth. You won’t notice any difference between your old and new teeth because they blend seamlessly together and are stable and secure.

Long Lasting Results

Traditional implants can last patients for 25 or more years with the right care and oral hygiene. Dental implants are a permanent restoration and can keep your smile healthy for years to come.

Types of Dental Implants At Shoreline Dental Care in Milford & West Haven, CT

Single Tooth Replacement

A single tooth replacement is when only one tooth needs to be replaced, and you have the majority of your adjacent teeth remaining. The single implant is placed in the upper or lower jaw, and a dental crown will be shaped to fit over the implant.

All-on-4 Dental Implants

An All-on-4 dental implant procedure involves placing four implants (one in each quadrant) into the upper or lower jaw bone. These four implants will act as support for your new replacement teeth. This treatment is ideal for patients who have lost an entire arch of teeth and is less invasive than a full arch of implants.

Implant-Supported Dentures

This type of implant involves placing two or three implants to anchor a denture to the jaw. The implants provide far more stability than just having your dentures resting on your gums. This also helps prevent further bone loss in the jaw, and the dentures cannot be removed, unlike traditional dentures.

Full Mouth Dental Reconstruction

The full mouth reconstruction is similar to the All-on-4 procedure, but it can also involve other dental procedures such as gum contouring, orthodontics, bone grafting, and more. Full mouth reconstruction is usually done in patients who need all of the upper and lower teeth restored because they have very few or no permanent teeth left.

Dental Implant FAQs

On average, dental implants are known to have a 95% success rate. Implant failure is typically preventable with good dental care and is most commonly caused by infection. Failure can be prevented by maintaining good oral health after surgery and keeping your mouth clean.

Not everyone will require bone grafting. Bone grafting is typically needed prior to dental implant surgery if there is not enough bone to hold the implant securely. Bone loss is typically caused by periodontal or gum disease and tooth loss.

It takes around three months for the implant post to fuse completely with the bone following the dental implant placement. After the implant has had time to complete the healing process and fuse with the bone, we will cover the implant with the replacement tooth.

The price of dental implants varies depending on what kind of implant you need, how many you need, and if you require bone grafting or other dental services. On average, dental implants cost $1,500 to $2,000 per tooth.
