Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the best option for replacing missing teeth. A dental implant consists of two parts, a titanium rod implanted into your jaw and a porcelain dental crown that our implant dentists affix to the rod. 

The finished replacement tooth looks, feels, and functions like your natural teeth and doesn’t require any special cleaning or care. You’ll brush and floss your teeth like normal.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Teeth implants don’t just look and feel like natural teeth; they also provide health benefits similar to natural teeth. 

Teeth work as a team, so it can destabilize the whole system when one is lost. The other teeth need to work harder, which can cause undue wear and tear, and the other teeth may also shift their positions to fill the gap. This shifting can even lead to additional tooth loss. 

The dental implant doesn’t just replace the tooth, as a bridge or denture might; it also replaces the root. Without a natural tooth root or an implant, the space left in the jaw can degrade.

Stability

As a dental implant heals, the jawbone and even gum tissue grow around it, making teeth implants as stable as normal, healthy teeth. 

Functionality

Teeth implants are so secure that they function like your natural teeth. You’ll be able to talk, sing, eat, and chew the way you did before the implant procedure — and possibly even better! 

Unlike some other tooth replacement options, with teeth implants, you’ll be able to eat all your favorite foods, even apples, corn, and steak.

Natural-looking

Because teeth implants are paired with porcelain crowns, they can be customized to match the look and color of neighboring teeth, leaving you with a healthy, natural-looking smile you can feel good about. 

Smile improvements

Missing, damaged, or decayed teeth can have a detrimental impact on your smile and confidence. 

Because teeth implants can preserve and even help restore jawbone, implants can also help restore face shape that can be lost when the jawbone degrades.

Dental Implants Process

Receiving dental implants is a process that takes place over multiple visits. 

The first step working with the implant dentists at our Wakefield practice to evaluate whether dental implants are right for you. Ideal candidates for dental implants are in good overall health and have enough healthy jawbone to support the implants. 

Next, if necessary, any damaged or broken teeth the implant will replace are removed. 

The placement of the implants will take place over two or more visits. First, the titanium rods are implanted and given time to heal. During this time, the jawbone will fuse with the implants, and you’ll have temporary crowns. 

At the next appointment, we’ll evaluate the implant, and if it is sufficiently fused with the jawbone, we’ll attach the permanent porcelain crown. 

After a dental implant procedure, some soreness can be expected. But in many cases, recovery takes only a few days. Your implant dentist will make sure you understand what to expect from your recovery and healing process based on the details of your procedure.

Cost of Dental Implants

Dental implants are an investment in your health. Many other tooth replacement options, such as dentures or bridges, require maintenance and even replacement every five-to-ten years. 

Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. 

While it may be tempting to ignore a gap left from a missing tooth, the costs of this decision will add up. A missing tooth leads to damage of the remaining teeth and can even contribute to other teeth being lost. Not only that, but a missing tooth will lead to bone loss in the jaw, which over time can impact your appearance and can also limit replacement options in the future. 

Receiving dental implants is a highly customized procedure. Costs vary depending on the work performed, such as the number of teeth being replaced and the amount of prep work necessary before beginning the implant procedure.

I honestly couldn’t have been more happy and satisfied with my experience with Dr.Nguyen and his assistant Olivia in the Billerica location! I had numerous fillings on my front teeth that were not done correctly by a different Doctor.They were making me feel insecure and worried about my smile, and after consulting and having my appointment with the doctor and Olivia, I feel I have a renewed lease on my smile and confidence. Dr.Nguyen made me feel very confident in his professionalism and knowledge in dentistry the moment we first spoke and through my appointment, Olivia was amazingly professional, while at the same time made me comfortable and re-assured in the whole process , it made everything so easy mentally. I cannot wait to continue using them for my cleanings and future appointments, and to recommend them to anyone I know!

I moved to Billerica and was unhappy with my prior dentist. Future of Dentistry got me in same day for an emergent toothache and was able to refer me to an oral surgeon who removed the tooth. Future of Demtistry’s reception team helped me through all the paperwork without me finding my insurance card. The entire team was happy and helpful throughout my entire experience. I’m happy to have a new dentist!!

Switched to this dentist a couple years ago and have never had a bad experience. Had a crown made, couple fillings and cleanings here. The team is great to work with and Dr. Nguyen does excellent work! The operations are well run and appointments / procedures are communicated efficiently which is refreshing. Do yourself the favor and go here for your chompah maintenance!

I went for a consultation and as soon as I walked in the decor in the office was very calm and home-like. The front desk employee, Erin I believe, was very kind and courteous making sure that I was able to get my previous dental office to get my records sent over to help my appointment go smoother. When Dr. Nguyen looked at my teeth he explained everything clearly so that I would understand exactly what they had planned for me and was even able to start my deep cleaning in that same appointment, which saved me another trip and time off from work. I appreciate all of the effort they put in to make sure I was comfortable and taken care of. Definitely the best staff I've encountered in a dental office. There were no attitudes in sight and it was a quiet and relaxed environment.

Very welcoming and friendly staff. Dr.Nguyen was caring, informative and excellent service.Highly recommend.
Can’t say enough about this place. Everyone is so nice. The office is immaculate. The waiting room is so cute, but I never actually spend time there because they run on time. Tara the hygienist is the sweetest and Dr. Nguyen is awesome too. They were great with my 2 year old as well!

I can't overstate my satisfaction with Future of Dentistry. Becoming a patient was quick and easy, and every visit has been nothing but pleasant. All of the staff are courteous, friendly, and personable. They were very helpful working with me to figure out my options for procedures and what my out-of-pocket costs would look like. As someone with a storied dental history, I'm very satisfied to have found such a great experience in my own backyard.The dental assistant, hygienist, and Dr. Nguyen are all top-notch professionals. Everyone took time to check in and make sure I was comfortable and aware of next steps throughout my visits. And at risk of sounding too hyperbolic, I left my latest appointment thinking Dr. Nguyen is an artist with the precision of a watchmaker. Both me and my fiancé are very happy with his work.If you're seeking a better dental experience, Future of Dentistry is highly recommended!

Had my first appointment here and am super happy with everything! The doctor helped me pick the best option for me and my situation. The assistant taking molds of my mouth made sure I was comfortable the whole time. Front desk staff was great with making sure they could fit me in for my next appointment and made sure it worked with my personal schedule

Future of Dentistry is an amazing hidden gem! Conveniently located with plenty of parking. This is an updated and state of the art office. Upon arrival I was greeted by the most caring and professional staff. The hygienist who did my cleaning was spectacular. I went back to complete dental work and was once again very pleased with the levels of professionalism and dedication by the Dentist and his entire team. I will recommend this practice to all my friends and family.
