Dental Implants Boston MA
While the most obvious impact of missing or damaged teeth is aesthetic, the way you look can have serious social and psychological consequences – how you look affects how you feel. In addition, missing teeth may lead to complicated health problems such as bone loss, misalignment of surrounding teeth and can affect your ability to chew and even speak. If you are embarrassed to eat, drink or smile due to missing teeth, dental implants may be the ideal solution to restore your health, smile and self-confidence.
Dental implants with a restoration (crown, bridge or denture) are the closest thing to your natural teeth and are designed to last a lifetime with proper and conscientious care. The doctors at Smileboston Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry are part of limited number of prosthodontists in the Boston area who are specially trained to surgically place dental implants and restorations. Please contact Smileboston today for more information and to find out if dental implants are the right solution for you!
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a replacement for the roots of a tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and topped with a natural looking replacement tooth. Dental implants are made of titanium which is lightweight, strong and not rejected by the body – dental implants enjoy the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device. Patients report that dental implants are vastly superior to dentures. In fact, the most common complaint expressed by patients is that they wish they had acted sooner.

- Increased jaw stability and strength;
- Bone loss prevention;
- Restored health of surrounding teeth;
