Implants and Dentures

 
(978) 777-5200

Dental implant surgery is a modern procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screwlike posts, and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones.

Dental implant surgery can offer a welcome alternative to dentures or bridgework that doesn't fit well and can offer an option when a lack of natural teeth roots don't allow building denture or bridgework tooth replacements.

     

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures.  Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or Periodontist - a specialist of the gums and supporting bone.  The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!

Dental implants are strong and durable and will last many years.

Reasons for dental implants:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile.
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues.
  • Support a bridge or denture, making it more secure and comfortable.

What does getting dental implants involve?

X-rays and impressions are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant.  An implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself for up to six months.  The final visit is to place the “Abutment Post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place creating a beautiful implant.

.

After several weeks of healing the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor.  After a healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.

You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed.  Good oral hygiene and eating habits, alongside regular dental visits, will aid in the life of your new implant.
