Dental Implants

Dental Implants in Braintree, MA

Before the development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.

Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Dental Implants Braintree, MA

Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet biocompatible material like metal or ceramic.

Dental Implant Procedure

Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for a dental implant and place the implant in the mouth. Your dentist in Braintree, MA will drill a small hole in your jawbone and carefully embed the implant post. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. A few months later, once the area has healed and the implant is firmly in place, you will return to our office for a permanent crown to be placed on top of the implant. 

Because implants require surgery, patients are administered anesthesia and, if necessary, antibiotics to stave off infection following the procedure. 

Are You A Good Candidate For Implants?

Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time.
