About dental implants - Newburyport, MA
Permanent Tooth Replacement
Dental Implants Give Back What You’re Missing
If you’re missing teeth you may also be missing out on enjoying life. Everyday activities like eating and speaking can become awkward and uncomfortable. Soft foods are about the only type you can eat without discomfort. Smiling can be embarrassing. Decayed teeth also spoil your smile and will threaten your dental health if not removed. At Newburyport Family Dental, we want you to stop worrying about how your mouth looks or feels and just enjoy life again. Dental implants can take the place of those decayed or missing teeth and permanently restore the esthetics and functioning of your mouth.
Dental implants have as their foundation a threaded, screw-like titanium post that’s inserted into your jawbone and performs the function of your tooth root. A natural-looking, high-quality dental crown takes the place of the above-the-gums portion of your tooth. The crown and post are connected by an abutment. Though comprised of just three components, dental implants offer limitless benefits. With them you can do everything that you would with natural teeth. They look, feel, and perform just like the real thing and with proper care will last a lifetime. Your implants can also give you unprecedented self-confidence.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Expert Placement, Perfect Fit
As general dentists, our doctors both place and restore implants with equal expertise. That means we provide every phase of your care right here in the same convenient location, so there’s never a need to go to outside practitioners. The process begins with a one-on-one consultation where we determine if you’re a candidate and develop a customized treatment plan for you. This includes using top-quality implants from one of the most respected manufacturers in the industry. Later you’ll return to our Newburyport, MA office for the dental implant procedure, when your implant posts will be surgically inserted into your jaw—one for each tooth you’re replacing—and topped with dental crowns. Using CEREC technology, we’re able to create and customize crowns to fit you comfortably during the same appointment. Depending upon the condition of your mouth, we may be able to place your final crowns that day, or we may provide you with temporary ones. Either way, you can resume eating and other normal activities almost immediately!
Comprehensive Dental Implant Care
In addition to placing and restoring dental implants, we perform other implant-related procedures right here in the same convenient location. If you have decayed teeth remaining and plan to replace them with implants, we can generally do tooth extractions the same day to make space. If your jawbone has suffered decay to the extent that it can’t support implants, we can perform bone grafting. With this innovative procedure we rebuild your jawbone mass to its original level and strength, restoring your distinctive jawline and making you a candidate for dental implants. We do whatever’s necessary to give you a smile that will make you happy and proud!
