What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant post is an artificial tooth root made from titanium. This post is surgically inserted into your jawbone, where it will naturally fuse to your bone and gums. Titanium alloy is one of the most biocompatible metals and creates a strong foundation for your new implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture. Some of the benefits you can expect from dental implants include:

  • Restored bite strength and function
  • Reduced risk of complications from missing teeth
  • Enhanced quality of life
  • Improved aesthetics
  • Simplified dental hygiene
  • And more

Our Malden dental implant experts are passionate about restoring your smile with the latest techniques modern dentistry has to offer. From attending a fellowship on implant and aesthetic dentistry at Tufts Dental School to teaching prosthodontics, our dentists stay current on innovations in the industry and are committed to being involved in the community.

The Dental Implant Process

Our process begins with a thorough assessment of your teeth, gums, and jaw to ensure you qualify for the procedure. If you require any other restorative treatment before proceeding with dental implants, our team is well-equipped to provide solutions to get you to the next step.

Once it has been determined you are a qualified candidate, we will take images of your bite to ensure precise placement of your dental implants. Our dentists will then surgically place your implant posts into your jaws. The entire healing process typically takes between eight and twelve weeks. When you have healed sufficiently, our dentists affix your new artificial tooth to your implant post. We do everything we can to craft an artificial tooth that matches the size and color of your existing teeth. Getting implants isn't simply about restoring function but also about renewing the beauty of your smile.

Bone Grafts and Sinus Lifts for Greater Stability

If you have been missing teeth for an extended period of time, you may experience a loss of bone density in your jaw. Bone loss can also occur with the presence of severe gum disease. When this happens, you will often require either a bone graft or a sinus lift to prepare for the dental implant post. Without the necessary bone density, your implant could become loose or even dislodged over time. Our goal is to ensure you always have the greatest possibility of long-term success before beginning any procedure.

  • Bone Graft – By adding synthetic or organic bone, we strengthen your jawbone to increase density and mass. Once healed, a dental implant can be placed successfully for long-lasting results.
  • Sinus Lift – This type of bone graft is performed to increase the density of the sinus wall to better support a dental implant. Once completed by a periodontist, your upper jaw will be prepared to receive your new implant.
