When it comes to tooth replacement, dental implants are the solution dentists recommend most often. They closely mimic the function of healthy, natural teeth, and with improved stability and longevity, dental implants are the gold standard in dental care. Unfortunately, that gold standard does have a higher price tag than some other restoration options. However, with a potentially lifelong restoration and flawless appearance and function, many patients consider dental implants worth the additional upfront cost. If you want to learn more about the cost of dental implant placement and restoration, continue reading this post, or call a trusted implant dentist near you to schedule a consultation.

Missing teeth challenge how a person looks, speaks and eats. Left untreated, empty tooth sockets quickly lead to jaw bone recession. Dental implants and fixed bridgework are 2 common tooth replacement options offered by Thomas G. Peters DMD MAGD at Farmington Valley Dental.
When accident, periodontal disease or extensive decay cause tooth loss, immediate replacement is important to retain normal speaking, chewing and aesthetics. Plus, the human body naturally resorbs jaw bone vacated by missing teeth. Less bone impacts the strength of surrounding teeth and also the overall facial structure.

If you are missing even one tooth, you understand how much of an impact adult tooth loss can have on your everyday life. From discomfort while eating to slurred speech and embarrassment in social situations, missing teeth affect nearly every aspect of your life. Fortunately, modern advancements in restorative dentistry now allow men and women with missing teeth to enjoy a complete smile and a strong bite in a way that looks completely natural. At Farmington Valley Dental, Dr. Thomas G. Peters offers dental implants, the gold standard of tooth replacement.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Though prosthetics like dentures and bridges replace only the crown portion of missing teeth, dental implants effectively restore the entire structure of the tooth, including the root. This is a vital advantage over traditional tooth replacement methods. The bone in the jaw begins to deteriorate when natural teeth are lost, but implants stimulate this tissue to keep the jaw strong.
Another benefit of dental implants is their stability. Because the implant is anchored firmly within the bone of the jaw, your restoration looks, feels, and functions just like a natural tooth. You can feel free to eat your favorite foods again without fear of a slipping denture or discomfort.
While many other dental offices require their patients to travel to a separate practice to have their dental implants placed, we perform both the placement and the restoration phases of the procedure right here in our Farmington, CT office. A board-certified specialist will strategically place your implants here and, following a period of healing called osseointegration, your custom restoration will be attached to complete the process.
Schedule Your Consultation
Our patients love the comfort and freedom that come with dental implants as opposed to any other type of tooth replacement solution. Experience the difference for yourself with top quality dental implants in Farmington, CT.
