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.

Moving teeth requires the placement of pressure. That pressure shifts the root system of the tooth breaking down supportive alveolar bone tissue. Once the tooth reaches its new position, the bone and gum tissue reattach. No matter how you perform these movements, there will be some discomfort, but unlike other orthodontic solutions, Invisalign may be a much more comfortable solution that limits patient discomfort throughout the course of treatment, especially compared with traditional bracket and wire braces.

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.

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.

Regain Your Smile and Your Self-Confidence with a Variety of Tooth Replacement Options from Dr. Sasson

Losing one or more teeth can be a devastating blow, both to your oral health and your confidence. When you have unsightly gaps in your smile, it can be hard to even get out of bed, not to mention interact with your peers for fear of embarrassment or ridicule. Worse, if left untreated, those gaps can cause your other teeth to start to shift so as to fill the space, resulting in an increased risk of periodontal disease, bite collapse, and additional tooth loss. Thankfully, Dr. Sasson and his dedicated staff have a variety of tooth replacement options available to you at Boston Smile Center. How are you supposed to know which solution would best fit your unique needs, though? Do you find stability and sturdiness most important? The speed of the treatment? Affordability? We want you to be well-informed of all the procedures and services available to you before you make a decision; that’s why below, we’ve provided some descriptions of our restorative services. Please contact our Brookline office directly if you’d like to learn more!
In most cases, we will suggest dental implants as the ideal option for patients who’ve lost one or more teeth. Dental implants provide a stable, sturdy, and practically seamless solution to unsightly gaps. Better yet, they’re the only tooth replacement option that replicates the root of the tooth as well as the crown, which helps keep the jawbone healthy and full. Dr. Sasson can perform every stage of the treatment right here in his Brookline office, from the placement of the implant to the custom restoration.
Additionally, dental implants can be used in conjunction with crown and bridges and dentures in order to add extra support.
Crown and Bridge
If you’re looking for the stability of dental implants but aren’t willing to wait the extended amount of time it will take for that treatment to be completed, crown and bridge may be a restorative solution that’s more suited to your needs. A bridge is a prosthetic tooth (or teeth) that can be attached in a gap between natural teeth that have been prepared with crowns.
Dentures and Partials
Dentures and partials offer both a convenient and affordable tooth replacement option. Dr. Sasson will have the piece custom-made to fit your specific needs, and it stays in place with the help of clips and natural suction. Dentures and partials are removable, making cleaning much more easy!
If you have any questions about our tooth replacement options, or if you’re ready to schedule a FREE consultation with Dr. Sasson, please call our Brookline office today. We can’t wait to give you a reason to smile!

When you think about your smile, do you ever consider what effect it might have on your overall health? If you don’t, don’t worry. It’s normal to think of your smile and your overall health as being completely separate.
But the truth is, the human body is much more interconnected than that. When your oral health is allowed to suffer, your overall health can suffer too. In recent medical studies, periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) has been linked with a wide range of health conditions, including:
- Heart disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Diabetes complications
- Preterm birth, and more
All of which is why regular visits to Dr. Sasson’s Boston dental office are so important. Through regular dental exams and cleanings, Dr. Sasson and the rest of our Boston team, we can help maintain a healthy smile that will support your overall wellbeing.
How often should you visit? The answer to that question is different for every patient, but in general, we recommend that patients see us twice a year, or at least once every six months.
Has it been longer than that since your last visit? Then why not call us today? At Boston Smile Center & Laser Dentistry, Dr. Sasson and his team are dedicated to friendly, helpful service that will improve your oral health, your general wellbeing, and your quality of life.
We look forward to helping you!
