If you’re missing one or more teeth, particularly if there are visible gaps in the front, it’s likely that you’re more than a little uncomfortable with showing off your smile. Lost teeth not only affect your appearance and self-confidence, but can also contribute to more serious oral health problems if left untreated. At Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, Dr. Sasson and his caring staff help patients just like you reclaim their complete, beautiful smile with permanent dental implants.
Replacing Teeth with Dental Implants
When a tooth is removed from the oral cavity, whether by force of injury, gum disease or via professional dental procedure, it leaves behind an empty space and an unstable section of jaw. In the absence of the missing tooth’s stability, surrounding teeth begin to drift and jaw bone can begin to deteriorate over time. Patients with missing teeth also tend to have a higher risk of developing periodontal disease, a condition that can negatively affect other parts of the body.
With advanced dental implants from Boston Smile Center, Dr. Sasson replaces your lost tooth with a sturdy, natural-looking prosthetic tooth, restoring stability to the jaw and keeping other teeth in their proper place. First, a tiny titanium post is implanted into the jaw bone, serving as an anchor for the tooth-colored crown that is to serve as your new permanent tooth. You care for your implant in the same way you would your natural teeth – brushing, flossing and visiting Dr. Sasson’s office for routine cleanings.
