The gold standard in tooth restoration is the dental implant. Designed like a natural tooth, dental implants adhere to the jawbone for a permanent tooth restoration. If you have one missing tooth or many, dental implants can give you back a complete smile with superior function and aesthetics. At Topsfield Smiles, we offer advanced options in implant dentistry at our dental center in Topsfield, MA.
The post of a dental implant connects the tooth restoration to the jawbone. Oral surgery is performed to insert the screw-like titanium post into the jawbone through the gum tissue. The post is designed to adhere to the bone – as the surgical site heals, bone forms around the post and secures it permanently in place.
The top of the dental implant post is attached to an abutment that can hold a dental restoration in place. For single tooth restorations, a dental crown can be attached to the abutment to form a new, functional tooth. Dental implants can also be attached to other types of dental restorations like dentures.
Excellence in Implant Dentistry
Dental implants have a very high success rate, over 95%. Our implant dentist can perform a comprehensive exam to determine if you are a good candidate for teeth implants. It is necessary to have enough bone to support an implant, but there are options, including bone grafting, to achieve better bone density for implants. If you are a good candidate for implants, our dentist can discuss all the options available and start the process to restore your missing teeth.
Dental implants are an extraordinary advancement in restoration dentistry. The teeth look and function like natural teeth, with more strength and less discomfort than dentures and dental bridges. Plus, dental implants stimulate bone growth in the jaw like natural teeth, helping patients retain their facial bone structure.
