What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a restorative dentistry solution to missing teeth—whether they have been lost to trauma or infection. Teeth implants are comprised of two parts: a titanium post and a porcelain crown. Together, they function, feel, and look like your natural teeth.
Dental implants can be placed in-office at our Wakefield, North Andover, and Dracut locations. At our Billerica office, we work closely with a trusted oral surgeon who places all teeth implants for local patients.
The Benefits of Implant Dentistry
Dental implants do more than just fill the holes in your smile. They provide the jawbone the stimulation it needs to stay healthy and functional. Dental implants can also help maintain the integrity of the surrounding teeth by preventing the spread of infection as well as the effects of shifting teeth.
If you’re missing multiple teeth, implant-supported dentures are a great way to prevent gum deterioration and keep your mouth and cheeks looking full and healthy.
The Dental Implant Procedure in our Massachusetts Offices
Dental implants are placed over two or more visits to our office. During the first visit, we’ll insert the titanium post into your jawbone and fit you with a temporary crown. We’ll then give your jaw one to two weeks to fuse with the teeth implants, just like it would with natural tooth roots.
When you come in for your second appointment, we’ll make sure we’re satisfied with the fusing of the jawbone and titanium post. If everything looks good, we’ll proceed to phase two of the application, in which we insert your permanent dental crown made of beautiful, durable porcelain.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
We at Future of Dentistry encourage our patients to think of implant dentistry as a long-term investment in health rather than a short-term purchase or fix. Our teeth implants are considered permanent, meant to effectively replace your natural tooth in every way.
If you’ve lost a tooth, the cost of getting a dental implant is far less than the costs associated with doing nothing because missing teeth negatively impact both your oral and overall health. Dental implants protect the structures of your other teeth and help prevent jawbone deterioration.
A Relaxing Implant Dentistry Experience
We offer a comfort menu to help you feel comfortable at each and every visit. You can take advantage of the headphones, beverages, pillows, and blankets we offer. If you were not relaxed when you came in, you will definitely feel relaxed during your procedure.
For some patients, the home-like comforts we provide are just not enough to soothe dental anxiety. While we reconstruct your smile, we offer sedation options to offer you a carefree dental experience. If you are experiencing any anxiety, please alert our office. We will talk to you about your options for a calming dental appointment.
