Dental Implants in Norwalk, CT

Straighten Your Teeth In Record Time

A missing tooth here and there may not seem like a huge deal at first, but the long-term consequences of missing teeth are very serious and could impact your health. Thankfully, Dr. Varky provides dental implants in Norwalk and can restore your smile like new, all conveniently in one dental office!

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. A small surgical procedure is required to place the implants, which can be performed in the comfort of our dental office in Norwalk, CT.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

The small titanium posts of the dental implants are inserted into your jawbone, and then a porcelain tooth crown is attached to replace the missing teeth. These porcelain crowns are custom-designed and crafted to resemble your natural tooth nearly identically.

Each dental implant case is different, as each patient is unique. In some cases, dental implants will need to fuse with the bone for several months before the crown is installed permanently. In other cases, you can have a temporary crown placed and a new set of teeth on the same day your implant is done.

Our dentist in Norwalk will consult with you to provide the best treatment plan depending on your unique case.

The Advantages of Dental Implants

It is no secret that dental implant technology has advanced in recent years and has become the ideal and go-to tooth replacement solution; This is because of the many advantages it boasts over other procedures. Because of the latest innovations in implant dentistry, you could benefit greatly from dental implants, even if you did not qualify before.

Dental implants provide many advantages and benefits in comparison to other teeth replacement options, such as:

  • Dental implants last a lifetime
  • They act and behave like natural teeth
  • Dental implants prevent bone loss
  • Adjacent teeth are secured when the implants are placed
  • Facial sagging and premature aging risks are reduced when missing teeth are replaced with implants
  • The success rate of dental implants is impressive, at 95 to 98%.
  • Dental implants can help keep gums disease-free
  • You can care for your dental implants just as you would your natural teeth
  • Patients experience better mental health and improved confidence with dental implants.

What Are the Downsides of Dental Implants?

Much like any other dental procedure, there can be potential downsides to dental implants in some cases. Here are a few reasons why you may not be eligible for dental implants:

  • Dental implants are not suited for everyone; those who may not be candidates include:
    • Smokers
    • Those with any health condition that affects bone mass
    • Those who are generally unhealthy
    • Patients with jaw structure that is not of adequate size to support implants.

  • Dental Implants can be more costly upfront when compared to other tooth-replacement alternatives. However, although implants cost more than dentures or bridges upfront, the long-term costs are less as they are permanent, while dentures need to be replaced regularly.
  • Several appointments. This is dependent upon your bone growth speed and the type of implant treatment you require. You may need to attend several appointments at our office in Norwalk before the implants are permanently fixed.
  • Unlike alternative tooth replacement treatments, minor operations on the gum and jaw are required for dental implant placement. A local or general anesthetic will be used for the procedures.
  • While dental implants have a high success rate, there is still a low risk for complications such as damage to teeth, blood vessels, and nerves and the risk of gum infections and potential for sinus issues.

Are Dental Implants Worth It? Yes, & Here’s Why

Dental implants are most certainly worth the expense and time if you need to replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth. Although dental implants seem expensive, they are a permanent replacement solution with a high success rate.

Unlike other teeth replacement solutions that can require daily maintenance and replacements or upgrades each year, dental implants require a one-time investment, and you can continue to live your life as you did when you had all your natural teeth. Considering the many benefits, factors, and long-lasting effects, dental implants are the ideal tooth-replacement solution in current times.

What Do Dental Implants Cost?

Dental implants cost between $3,500 to $5,500 per tooth for the abutment and crown - this includes extraction, anesthesia, follow-up costs, etc. If major grafting is needed, it can add up to $2,500 per site. A three-unit implant bridge (two implants with a pontic) can cost around $8000 - $10,000 if no major grafting is needed. When you see dental implants advertised for less, it is likely because the cost that is being promoted is excluding the necessary inclusions and procedures.

Dental implants will be priced according to your unique case and treatment requirements. If you require complicated grafting this will increase the cost of the implants. This will all be communicated to you during your first consultation.

Why Dental Implants Are Worth the Cost

You might be tempted to save on costs by selecting dentures or bridges over dental implants. However, other traditional tooth replacements can be more expensive in the long run due to hidden fees and additional procedures and replacements.

It is also essential to consider that dental implants not only save you money in the long run, but they are worth the cost short term solely due to the advantages and freedoms that you gain back in your daily life.

Why dental implants can help save money in the long term

There are many benefits to choosing Clear Aligners over traditional braces. Here are just a few:

Faster treatment time

Health costs

Without dental implants or tooth roots, your jawbone begins to deteriorate. This means that the risk of gum disease and additional teeth loss increases which will ultimately affect the amount you need to spend to fix these issues.

Reduced discomfort and sensitivity

The long-term costs

Dentures and bridges need to be replaced every five to ten years on average, which affects their initial lower price. You would also have to buy adhesives regularly to stabilize your dentures. Dental implants last for 30+ years, and you won’t need to spend any extra on maintenance.

cost effective

The social costs

Dental implants are solid and fixed in place, while dentures can slip or make noises when you are talking and eating, which can ultimately affect your confidence.

Versatile

The convenience costs

Dental implants mirror natural teeth; therefore they can be flossed and brushed normally. Dentures require regular cleaning, which can take up time during your day.

Alternatives To Dental Implants

Suppose you do not qualify for dental implants because of other oral health issues or because of costs. Dr. Varky will consult with you to provide the best alternative treatment plan to replace your missing teeth or tooth. Below are the three alternatives we have to offer our patients:

  • Bridges
  • Dentures
