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. 

Call our Chelmsford location at 978-970-2089 to learn more and let our implant dentists customize the right procedure for you.
