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.
