What Are Dental Implants?
When a tooth has been lost or pulled, it's vital to have it addressed so you can protect the health and appearance of your smile. To help Danbury, CT patients move forward after losing a tooth, Dr. Shweta Gujaran is pleased to offer lifelike dental implants. This restorative dental treatment is done using a sturdy post embedded in the jaw that acts as a stand-in tooth root. A unique crown, bridge, or full-arch piece fills in for the visible portion of the lost tooth (or teeth). When you are dealing with missing teeth or need a tooth extraction, schedule an oral exam at The Tooth Studio and discover your dental implant possibilities.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Fixed dental implants at The Tooth Studio can benefit the health and appearance of your smile in a number of ways. As effective tooth substitutes, oral implants:
- Mimic the look and function of natural teeth
- Are long-lasting with proper care
- Improve your ability to eat a range of foods and speak comfortably
- Don't require abutment (adjacent) teeth to remain in place
- Integrate with the jaw to help retain jawbone health and strength
- Allow for improved confidence and a more appealing smile
Am I A Candidate for Dental Implants?
If you are missing any teeth, whether it's one or all of them, you may be a good candidate for an implant-based restoration at The Tooth Studio. A dental implant may also be recommended if you are in need of an extraction or if you're not happy with your current replacement. To function, implants require proper jawbone tissue, healthy gum tissues, and a good oral environment. Sometimes, patients may require additional procedures before they are considered proper candidates. Implants might not be right for you when you are pregnant, smoke cigarettes, or have specific health disorders. During your appointment, Dr. Gujaran can help you decide if implant-supported restorations are ideal for you and your needs.
What Is the Treatment Process for Dental Implants?
Dental implant treatments begin by placing the post, which is done surgically. To start, your teeth will be cleaned and your mouth numbed to keep you relaxed and comfortable. If dental anxiety is a significant problem for you, we can discuss sedation dentistry options that will allow you to enjoy peace of mind while undergoing your treatment. The fixed post will be strategically positioned within your bone at a specific area and allowed time to fuse with the jaw through a phenomenon referred to as osseointegration. Once the treatment area has totally recovered (commonly at least six months later), Dr. Gujaran will attach a specially made implant crown, denture, or full-arch piece and evaluate the alignment of the biting surfaces. After your surgery, you may experience mild puffiness, bruising, or soreness around the implanted post. Prescription or over-the-counter pain meds and cold compresses can help lessen any post-surgery discomfort. To maintain your dental implant, it's important to keep up a good oral care routine that includes brushing, flossing, and regular visits to The Tooth Studio to keep up your dental health.

Dental Implants FAQs
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are designed to be a long-term solution for missing teeth. With proper care and maintenance, your dental implants can last for decades or even the rest of your lifetime. To care for your implant, floss your teeth daily and use a soft brush and nonabrasive toothpaste to brush at least twice a day. You should also try to avoid hard or sticky foods as well as tobacco and alcohol. Finally, we recommend visiting The Tooth Studio for regular cleanings and exams so our Danbury, CT dentists can check on your dental implant and recommend if further steps are needed.
Are there any potential downsides of dental implants?
While dental implants are an effective treatment for missing teeth, they are not suitable for every patient and can have some drawbacks. These include the need for surgery to place the implant, which carries the usual risks associated with any surgical procedure. Some individuals may also experience minor complications such as infection, gum irritation, or implant failure. However, these risks are relatively rare, and most patients have a positive experience with dental implants.
How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of dental implants can vary depending on several factors, including the number of implants needed, your oral health needs, and any additional procedures required. During your dental implant consultation at our Danbury, CT practice, Dr. Gujaran will review your case, let you know what to expect with your treatment, and provide a cost estimate.
Are dental implants covered by insurance?
Dental insurance coverage for dental implants can vary widely depending on your insurance provider and policy details. In some cases, dental insurance may cover a portion of the cost of dental implants. It's best for you to review your dental insurance policy or consult with your insurance provider to see if your coverage includes dental implants. Our office can also provide financing options for patients who want to make their dental implant treatment more affordable.
