If you are suffering from complete tooth loss in one or both arches, you are not alone. In fact, the American College of Prosthodontics estimates that 36 million Americans do not have any remaining natural teeth. To restore your smile and quality of life, you have likely tried dentures; however, they did not give you the results that you wanted. Not to mention, they did not stop the deterioration of your jawbone. To regain the next best thing to your real teeth, dental implants in Brookline can help. You will regain a complete smile while preserving the density in your jawbone.

What are dental implants?
Although the words dental implant are often used to refer to the entire structure of a tooth replacement, they are technically a threaded titanium screw that is implanted in your jawbone to substitute for a missing tooth root. If you’re considering dental implants, Boston Dentist Dr. Alan Sasson at the Boston Smile Center has years of experience.

For thousands of years, people have relied upon removable dentures to restore smiles following tooth loss, but with the introduction of dental implants, patients are able to choose between removable and semi-permanent smile restoration. In many cases, the choice is clear, but some patients need a little extra help choosing between the two options. We encourage patients to schedule consultation appointments to allow our team to walk through the process, benefits, and drawbacks of each option before making a decision. To find out more before your appointment, visit our dental implant or dentures pages, keep reading, or feel free to give the friendly Boston Smile Center team a call.

Dental implants have become one of the most popular tooth replacement options because they are the only dental restoration that restores the root and crown (visible portion) of the tooth. Because dental implants replace the root structure, they are not reliant on surrounding teeth for support, and the implant posts provide necessary stimulus for bone and gum tissue retention. Innovations in dental implant techniques and technology have made them increasingly viable, and they now have a 98% success rate. When it comes to successful dental implant placement, your Boston Smile Center team works hard to provide the skill and quality materials necessary for a successful surgical procedure, but after the procedure, the success of implant placement is in your hands.

Missing teeth are more than just a matter of appearance. Just one missing tooth can hamper your ability to speak and to chew. The consequences, therefore, may degrade your self-confidence and impair your ability to eat a nutritious diet. Dental implants replace missing teeth in the most natural way possible. The dentists at the Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, will give you dental implants that restore your smile, your confidence and your overall health.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant not only looks like a live tooth, but with a “root” it even mimics the function and structure of a natural tooth. This root is actually a titanium post that is surgically embedded into the bone beneath the space of the missing tooth. As the implant and bone tissue fuse, the implant provides the added advantage of helping to prevent bone loss and maintain your facial features. After the implant is securely anchored within the bone (a process called osseointegration that usually takes between three to six months), Dr. Alan Sasson or Dr. Ray Dempsey will then secure your custom made crown to the post.
Actually, implants are often the solution for when you have more than one missing tooth, in that they are used to secure bridges or partials for multiple tooth replacements and can even be used to secure full upper and lower dentures. Your doctor will be able to determine what the best course of treatment for you is. So, whether you are missing one tooth or more, dental implants may provide the most natural and the most comfortable solution.
