Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is one of the best options for replacing missing teeth. While the term “dental implant” is often used to describe the entire replacement tooth, it actually consists of two parts. First, there’s a titanium rod that is implanted into the jaw to replace the root of the tooth; then a porcelain dental crown is attached to the rod, replacing the tooth. 

When the procedure is finished, you’re left with a tooth that is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth in form and function.

Benefits of Dental Implants

A dental implant is the tooth replacement option that comes closest to a natural tooth. Not only will the implant look natural, but it will integrate into your gum line and jawbone like a natural tooth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Low maintenance

Dental implants are cared for the same way as your natural teeth. All you need to do to keep them in good shape is to brush and floss your teeth the way you’re used to. 

Stability

Because a dental implant replaces both the root and the crown of the tooth, a dental implant is as stable, if not more, than your natural teeth. 

Functionality

Dental implants restore full function to your teeth. Once healed, you won’t notice a difference between your implants and your natural teeth.

Natural-looking

We custom make your tooth implant with a porcelain crown that matches the color of your other teeth. You won’t be able to tell the difference between your implant and your natural teeth — and no one else will know, either! 

Smile improvements

Replacing a missing tooth has obvious benefits to the look of your smile. But it also has benefits you may not know about. 

When a space is left where a tooth used to be, the jawbone degrades. Over time this can even impact the shape of your face. An implant not only preserves bone but can help restore bone that’s been lost, as the bone will grow around the implanted rod. 

Dental Implants Process

Receiving dental implants is a multi-step process. It begins by having our dentists evaluate your unique needs to determine whether or not implants are the right solution for you. 

The dental implant procedure takes place over two or more visits. If the tooth is still present, the first step is to extract it. The next step is implanting the titanium rod that replaces the root of your tooth. These implants then need time to heal so that the jawbone can fuse with the rod. The gums will also grow and form their place around the implant. 

During the healing process, you may have the option of a temporary crown to help protect the implant and allow you to speak and eat comfortably. Once the implant is healed, we’ll attach your permanent porcelain crown. 

In most cases, the physical recovery from a dental implant procedure only takes a few days. Our clinical team will provide you with verbal and written details of what to expect from your healing and recovery process. 

Cost of Dental Implants

Dental implant procedures are customized to your specific needs. As such, the costs vary depending on how many teeth need to be replaced and how much preparation is needed. 

When the dental implant procedure is complete, you’re left with a replacement tooth that should last for decades. This makes dental implants an investment in your long-term, over all health and wellbeing. 

While the immediate investment in dental implants may be higher than other replacement options, those other options require additional maintenance and possibly even replacement every five to ten years — and those costs add up. 

The cost of doing nothing may also surprise you. A missing tooth leads to many forms of damage, including extra wear on the other teeth and bone loss in the jaw. These issues can lead to additional teeth being lost. 

When you’ve lost a tooth, it’s best to explore your replacement right away. Allowing too much time to pass can limit your options.

I just started going to this dentist and I love it. I have an extreme dentil phobia and everyone makes me feel welcome and assured that I will be okay. I just got a temporary filling and the numbing works so well, I didn’t feel a thing. They even gave me a blanket to calm me down and explained everything they were doing to me. Definitely recommend this place.

Everyone at this practice is welcoming and helpful. Tanya, who has been my Dental Hygienist for many years, is excellent and the reason that I stayed with the practice after Dr. Vermette left. I have been very happy with that decision and happily drive the 25+ miles to get there.

Can’t say enough wonderful things about this team at the Dracut location. I have such a phobia of the dentist and I had a dental emergency and was in agony for days over the holiday weekend. After seeing my regular dentist and being disappointed with their recommendations, I called this office after it was highly recommended by a friend. This was the best decision I could have made. I called and explained my situation, they got me right in, provided me with all the information I needed in order for me to make the best decision possible. They made me feel comfortable, cared for, like family. Dr Oliver Austria and his assistant Courtney were top notch. For any and all dental needs, please run to this office, you will not be disappointed!

I had Dr Oliver Austria for invisalign. There was an add for a free consultation online. I set an appointment, had a full consultation with x rays, advised of several options available to me and walked out without spending one penny. Dr Austria is fiercely meticulous, graduated from Tufts university and is the best of the best.
