If you are missing teeth, dental implants are the most natural way to replace them.
Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, several teeth or all of your teeth. Because they are so similar to natural teeth, maintaining dental implants is also very similar.
Implant restorations, also known as crowns or bridges, are made of material that is stronger than natural dentin and enamel. As such, you should care for these restorations just as you would for your natural teeth -- with a daily regimen of brushing and flossing -- and regular checkups with the dentist.
Our family dentists at Westford Family Dental in Downtown Everett have plenty of experience making implant-supported restorations. We will work closely with you to determine which type of restoration is best for your situation and if any additional procedures need to be done before we place your new restorations.
At Westford Family Dental, we want you to have the best dental experience possible. Our team of professionals is committed to providing you with the best in patient care. We focus on your comfort, as well as your health and appearance.
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth and provide a permanent solution for patients who are unhappy with traditional dentures or bridges. Using specialized surgical procedures and dental technology, we can place titanium screws into the jawbone where the natural tooth once stood. These screws act as false tooth roots, allowing us to place an implant-supported crown that will serve as a replacement for the missing tooth. For our patients who are missing multiple teeth, we can also provide implant-supported bridges or dentures instead of traditional dentures or bridges which may be uncomfortable or embarrassing for some patients.
Implants are a highly predictable way to replace missing teeth. In most cases implants offer superior function and appearance, compared to conventional dentures or bridges.
Implants are also a great option for restoring multiple missing teeth. If you are missing several teeth, an implant-supported bridge can replace them without involving the adjacent healthy teeth.
Dental implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
Removable dentures can be inconvenient because they can make eating difficult, cause irritation, sores or infections in your mouth, inhibit taste, require the use of adhesives and make it difficult to speak clearly. Dental implants eliminate these problems because they function just like your natural teeth.
