If you’re considering a dental implant tooth replacement plan, you probably have some questions. While these restoration plans have become the gold standard for many dentists, most patients are still unfamiliar with dental implant treatment. In this post, we’ll talk about some of the things that patients should know about dental implant supported tooth replacement before starting their treatment.
November 24, 2015
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.

For many patients who struggle with crooked, gapped, or misaligned smiles, treatment often seems just as bad or worse than the current state of their smiles. A mouth full of metal, months with diet restrictions, extra time spent on oral hygiene, and hours in the orthodontist’s chair, may seem like more trouble than they’re worth. Lucky for our patients, Boston Smile Center offers a wide variety of orthodontic treatment options to avoid a mouth full of metal, hours spent in the office, and any other concerns patients may have with traditional orthodontic treatment.

An attractive, open smile is an invaluable asset in your personal and professional life, conveying confidence, charisma, and a whole host of positive attributes in a single flash of your pearly whites. If your teeth are crowded, misaligned, or unevenly spaced, you may find yourself hiding your smile in public and in photographs. Fortunately, there is a teeth-straightening solution that doesn’t involve the use of metal wires and brackets: Invisalign clear aligners. Dr. Alan Sasson at Boston Smile Center is a 2014 Invisalign Preferred Provider serving Brookline, MA and the surrounding areas. Our team would love to show you how much of a difference Invisalign can make in your smile and in your life.
Choose Invisalign for a Confident Smile
If you are a candidate for Invisalign orthodontic treatment, we’ll begin the process of straightening your teeth by taking precise digital measurements of your dentition. This data will be sent directly to an Invisalign lab where your custom aligners will be created. When we receive your aligners, we’ll assess your bite to ensure optimal fit and comfort. The rest is easy! Simply wear your clear, comfortable aligners for the designated amount of time each day for a period of about two weeks for each set. As time passes, you’ll graduate to the next set of aligners in the series until treatment is complete. With Dr. Sasson’s guidance, you’ll begin to see your new smile emerge in no time!
Because we want you to begin enjoying the innumerable benefits of straighter teeth as soon as possible, Dr. Sasson also offers Propel Orthodontic technology. This revolutionary solution actually improves the restructuring process within your jaw as your teeth are shifted into their final positions. Capable of reducing orthodontic treatment duration by up to 60 percent, Propel has been successfully utilized with both traditional braces and the Invisalign system. We genuinely look forward to becoming your partners in your journey toward a healthier, more balanced smile with Invisalign clear aligners.

Do you often find that you avoid laughing or smiling in public because you’re ashamed of the condition of your teeth? Has the condition of your mouth caused you embarrassment due to deep staining, gaps, or chipped teeth? At Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, Dr. Sasson and his team want you to know how easy it can be to get a brand new smile you’ll actually want to show off with porcelain veneers.
Why Should I Choose Dental Veneers?
Hand-crafted of only the highest quality dental porcelain, dental veneers are incredibly thin, durable layers that are affixed to the front surfaces of your natural teeth. They can correct a variety of common cosmetic concerns, allowing you to finally smile with confidence. The most frequently corrected problems include:
- Teeth that are too small or oddly shaped
- Persistent yellowing, staining and discoloration
- Chipped or cracked enamel
- Minor misalignment
- Gaps between front teeth
Unlike many other cosmetic procedures designed to completely change the appearance of your features, the applications of porcelain veneers is simple and relatively quick. In fact, using only the latest technology available in the industry, Dr. Sasson can give you the bright, even smile you’ve always wanted in as little as two visits to his Brookline office.

In an earlier blog post, we discussed the dangers of gum disease, as well as what symptoms and risk factors you should be aware of when going through your daily oral health routines. If you’ve just discovered that you’re suffering from the disease, the idea of pursuing treatment can make you anxious. After all, you might remember that dentists used to get rid of infected tissue by cutting it out with sharp tools – a terrifying thought, especially if you’re suffering from tenderness and pain already. At Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, we don’t want you to have to worry about messy consequences like blood and stitches. You deserve treatment that is both quick and effective, while still holding your comfort as a top priority. That’s why Dr. Sasson is happy to offer Laser Periodontal Therapy™ to his patients. With Laser Periodontal Therapy™, your gums will be cared for much faster, no cutting, scalping, or stitching required!
A Pain-Free Alternative to Conventional Surgery
The way it works is simple – instead of using a scalpel, Laser Periodontal Therapy™ employs a dental laser that removes infection in the spaces between your teeth and your gums. The laser also seals each new, healthy site with a clot, altogether eliminating the need for pesky stitches, as well as leading to a quicker healing time.
There are several benefits to using Laser Periodontal Therapy™ besides the obvious ones – for instance, the treatment is much more conservative than traditional surgery, meaning that we won’t have to compromise your teeth in order to ensure your gums are healthy. In addition, Laser Periodontal Therapy™ has also been proven through several studies to not only heal tissue, but also to reconnect it. Best of all, there’s no downtime required after the procedure takes place. You’ll be able to return to work, drive yourself home, or even go to lunch once you’re finished!
Our team wants to give you a reason to smile, here at Boston Smile Center. Call us today to schedule your FREE consultation with Dr. Sasson, or to learn more about Laser Periodontal Therapy™. Our Brookline dental office is easily accessible from Boston, Brighton, Cambridge, and Newton as well.

Today, a staggering three out of four American are suffering from some level of gum disease and its effects. That’s a big percentage, and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly, by any means. Gum disease is a serious oral health condition that can result in serious pain, inflammation, and even the deterioration of bone and tissue in your mouth, resulting in the eventual loss of teeth altogether. Research has even shown that gum disease can contribute to serious conditions like diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
What’s worse is that gum disease isn’t always indicated by obvious symptoms like pain. At Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, our team is committed to doing all we can to keep you healthy and happy, and that includes making sure you’re well-informed about the risk and symptoms of serious oral health issues such as gum disease. Here are the most common tell-tale signs:
- Red, swollen, and/or tender gums
- Constant bleeding that occurs while eating or flossing
- Bad breath that even mouthwashes and other treatments don’t fully help
- Receding gums (your teeth look longer)
- Pockets of pus forming between your teeth and gums
- Loose or wobbly teeth
- A change in the way your bite feels or fits together
However, even if you aren’t currently experiencing any of these symptoms, you could still be suffering from gum disease. If many cases, symptoms remain invisible until the disease has progressed into the last, most destructive stage. This is why regular check-ups with Dr. Sasson are very important to maintain. He’ll be able to notice more subtle indicators of gum disease and provide effective treatments quickly. This is especially important if you are at a higher risk. Risk factors include being 65 or older, if you smoke or use tobacco, if you suffer from system diseases such as diabetes or arthritis, or if you take certain medications such as oral contraceptives or anti-depressants. In a later blog post, we’ll discuss the revolutionary treatment we can offer you for gum disease here in Brookline, MA: Laser Periodontal Therapy™.
Don’t let your gum disease go untreated! Our team will help you feel your best, here at Boston Smile Center. Call us today to schedule your FREE consultation with Dr. Sasson. Our Brookline dental office is easily accessible from Boston, Brighton, Cambridge, and Newton as well.

What Is SmileMagic?
SmileMagic uses digital imaging to let our specially trained imaging technician manipulate a current photo of you to reflect what your smile will look like when your treatment is complete. The technician will work from very specific instructions outlined by Dr. Sasson himself and will serve as an accurate example of what you can expect to see weeks or months down the road.
Why do we offer this service?
Because we understand that changing your smile can feel like changing your identity, and we want the experience to be as stress-free as possible.
