Dental Implants – Granby, CT
Take Advantage of
Permanent Tooth Replacement
Many who have suffered tooth loss know that missing teeth can make eating and speaking more challenging, but did you know that when a tooth root is lost the jaw bone no longer receives nutrients? As a result, it eventually loses density and its shape, leading to a sunken look. While traditional dentures and bridges allow you to eat and smile again, they do not address the roots. Only dental implants can replace the entire missing tooth structure. At Salmon Brook Dental, we’re happy to offer this comprehensive option, so schedule your consultation to get started with dental implants in Granby, CT!

What Is a Dental Implant?
Unlike traditional bridges and dentures, a dental implant goes beneath the gums’ surface and resembles the structure of a natural tooth. A dental implant consists of three basic parts: the implant post, an abutment piece, and a restoration. First, the post is surgically put into the jaw bone, where it stimulates new growth. Once the post has fully integrated with the bone, the abutment is placed to connect the restoration on top.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants mimic a natural tooth in many ways, giving them benefits that you just can’t get with dentures or bridges alone. These benefits include the following:
- Traditional bridges require removing tooth structure to make room for the restoration, but dental implants stand completely independent of the surrounding teeth, allowing you to enjoy these teeth for as long as possible.
- Dental implants can last 30 or more years, which is significantly longer than dentures and bridges. These need to be replaced about every five to ten years.
- Because the jaw bone retains its shape with dental implants, you can keep your youthful appearance.
- With the implants firmly embedded in the jaw, you can have a nutritious diet of fibrous fruits and vegetables without worrying about your replacements slipping out of place.
Are Dental Implants Right for You?
Truly customized to your unique needs, dental implants can be used in basically every tooth loss situation, regardless of how many teeth you’re missing or where they’re located in your mouth. However, you do need to have enough jaw bone to support dental implants and be in good oral health before the placement procedure. That’s why meeting with either Dr. Endres or Dr. Chawla is so important! They can evaluate your oral cavity and get you ready for implant treatment.
For just one lost tooth, a single post is positioned in the socket, and a prosthetic dental crown is placed on top, completely replacing the missing tooth from root to crown. This treatment eliminates the need to reduce the teeth that are located on either side of the gap and keeps the jaw bone strong.
Missing Multiple Teeth?
If you are missing multiple teeth throughout the upper or lower arch or in a row, we can place just a few dental implants to secure a partial denture or bridge. Instead of clasping or being bonded onto healthy teeth, these restorations directly attach to the implants, giving them far more security and longevity.
Missing All Teeth?
Even those who have no natural teeth left can benefit from dental implants. In fact, with four to six strategically positioned dental implants, a full denture can restore significantly more biting power than dentures alone and enable you to have a high quality of life again.
Other dental offices in Granby need to refer patients to specialists for the implant placement procedure. With us, that’s not a problem. You don’t have to travel to another dental office for this complex part. Our team can handle every step of the process, from first consultation to final restoration, right here in our dental office. Our dentists have been highly trained and have years of experience, allowing them to confidently and competently perform implant placement.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
It’s true that traditional dentures and bridges are generally less expensive than dental implants. However, these restorations have to be replaced much more frequently, adding to the overall cost. In fact, most of the time, dental implants turn out to be the more cost effective solution in the end. When you come in for your consultation, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs based on the number and location of implants and the type of restoration. Then, we can provide details about the treatment cost that you’ll be responsible for paying. Our team is happy to work with you to make your restored smile more affordable.
