Dental Implants – Colchester, VT
You Don’t Have To Live With Missing Teeth
Dental implants are the best option in tooth replacement, as they are the only method that provides a truly comprehensive solution to tooth loss. By replacing the entire tooth structure, implants stabilize the jaw, prevent bone resorption, protect your oral health, and promote better overall wellbeing, too. And to make it easy and convenient, your Colchester, VT dentist can perform every step of the procedure, including the implant placement and final restoration, all right here at Liscio Dental.
Benefits of Dental Implants
For eligible candidates, implant dentistry offers a host of benefits, including:
- Replaces the roots and crowns of missing teeth to prevent bone loss in the jaws
- Eliminates needs for denture adhesive
- Gives you the freedom to eat hard, tough, or crunchy foods
- Provides a natural, comfortable feel
- Can last a lifetime
- Has a high success rate
- Doesn’t affect other teeth in your mouth like a dental bridge would
When all of these benefits come together, the result is a smile that looks and feels like your own. This not only enhances your oral health, but your self-confidence as well. The only regret most of our patients have is that they didn’t get dental implants sooner!
Indications for Dental Implants
Generally speaking, good candidates are in suitable health to fully recover from the implant procedure and have sufficient bone structure to support dental implants. If you’ve gone for a while with missing teeth, we may recommend a preliminary bone augmentation (bone grafting, sinus lift, etc.) to create sufficient space for the dental implants.
But you’ll be glad to know that, whether you’re missing one tooth, several teeth, or all of your teeth, there’s a way that dental implants can restore your smile.
Missing a Single Tooth
For just one missing tooth, we’ll attach a single dental crown to your implant. To make sure it blends in seamlessly with your smile, we’ll precisely match it in shape and color to your other teeth.
Missing Multiple Teeth
If you’re missing several teeth, a single implant can be used to anchor a dental bridge and replace several teeth at once.
Missing All Teeth
If you’re missing all the teeth in the upper or lower arch, an implant-retained denture will provide superior strength, stability, and chewing function than a traditional denture alone.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Every patient faces unique circumstances, so the cost of implants can vary quite a bit. After Dr. Liscio or Dr. Maier have evaluated your needs during a consultation, we’ll create a treatment plan so we can give you an individual cost estimate.
But one thing is certain: Dental implants are one of the best investments you can make in your oral health because they’re the only option that can last a lifetime. Not to mention that they look and feel more natural than anything else.
Here at Liscio Dental, we look forward to helping you enjoy all the benefits of a complete tooth replacement. To find out more, schedule an appointment with us today!
