If you have missing teeth, then replacing them with dental implants is typically the best option for lifelong results. Without replacing teeth, your jaw bone will begin to recede due to lack of stimulation from tooth roots and surrounding teeth may shift into the empty space. This can throw off your bite and make eating difficult, not to mention alter your overall facial appearance too! You should consider dental implants if:
Missing one or more teeth
Teeth are loose or shifting
Biting and chewing is difficult or painful
Teeth are heavily infected or decayed
Dental Implants - the closest thing to real teeth.
Why Dental Implants are Important
Dental implants offer patients many benefits to both their health and quality of life. Your new teeth will be just as strong and stable as natural teeth, giving you the confidence to go about your daily routines without any anxiety, discomfort, or embarrassment. Whether you replace a single tooth or even a full arch of teeth, your benefits will include:
Long-term replacement with proper care
Eat the foods you love again
Speak more clearly
Increased confidence and self-esteem
Preserve the jaw and improve oral health
Beautiful, natural-looking smile
Our Dental Implant Process
When placing dental implants in Plymouth, MA, we utilize state-of-the-art technology combined with advanced surgical experience to ensure successful and long-lasting results. Our process begins with an in-depth examination and consultation of your oral health and smile goals. We then perform a 3D CT scan using our digital cone beam scanner, which gives us detailed images of your jaw bone volume, location of tooth roots and nerves. If you have been missing teeth for some time or have suffered oral trauma, you may need bone grafting to restore adequate volume in order to support an implant. Once the bone has proper volume, your dental implant will then be placed into your jaw in the ideal location to look natural in your smile. After the dental implant has healed, your general dentist will be able to restore it with a lifelike dental crown so you can enjoy your natural and beautiful smile again.
