Enjoy dental implant services with a Boston dentist
Reconstructing the smile after tooth loss is incredibly important. Without replacing a tooth, patients in the Boston, MA area may face increased spacing or misalignment in the smile due to shifting teeth. With a quality restorative dentist, patients can discuss the services available for tooth replacement. One of the most popular and highly desirable options is that of the dental implant. Our dentist, Anjum A. Ansari, D.M.D., can help patients determine if they are a good fit for dental implants before moving forward with tooth replacement treatment.
What is a dental implant?
Implants are used throughout the body. They are made of titanium metal because this material is highly biocompatible with the body. The same applies to dental implants. Dr. Ansari places these titanium posts during oral surgery. In doing so, patients will then be able to restore the upper portion, or “abutment,” of the dental implant with a restoration such as a crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants are multipurpose and can replace one, several, or all of the teeth in the upper or lower dental arch.
Who is a candidate that fits the requirements for placing a dental implant?
Patients with sufficient bone within the jaw can benefit from placing dental implants and restoring them based on their unique needs.
What are the other tooth replacement options available?
Alternative ways to replace missing teeth include partial dentures, complete dentures, and dental bridges. Anjum A. Ansari, D.M.D. will discuss all viable options during an initial assessment and evaluation to help patients decide the best treatment for their needs. Not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants, though our team may suggest preparatory services such as bone grafting to prepare a patient accordingly.
