Dental ImplantsThere is the occasional breakthrough in the field of dentistry that completely changes how our Framingham dentist is going to be able to restore the beauty and functionality of a smile. For many of our patients, tooth loss has become a serious concern that they are forced to deal with every single day, and this is why we are proud to be able to provide them with dental implants, one of the most effective options that can be used to transform a smile unlike ever before.
The process of placing dental implants into the mouth is going to be relatively quick and painless. We are going to begin by treating any oral complications that are going to affect the health of the teeth and gums and the final results of the procedure. We will then place surgical-grade implant fixtures into the jaw bone in the area that has been left by the missing teeth. Over the course of the coming weeks, the fixture will fuse with the surrounding bone and soft tissue in a process that is known as osseointegration.
Once the fixtures have finally settled and the mouth has healed, we can then attach any number of appliances to the dental implants. This includes bridges, dentures, or crowns that are going to restore both the form and function of a patient’s smile. Once attached, individuals will be able to once again enjoy the foods that they love and a fresh new appearance. In addition to this, implants require only the most basic of maintenance including daily brushing, flossing, and the use of mouth wash.
Those who are putting off treatment for their missing teeth should understand some of the serious complications that may arise if they ignore this serious problem. The surrounding teeth and tissue will often shift towards the area of the missing teeth, creating an unwelcome appearance and a slew of health issues that may require full mouth reconstruction. There may also be a buildup of bacteria on the gums that can result in severe periodontal disease.
If you or a loved one is ready for to restore your smile, our specialist is proud to be able to offer dental implants as a definitive solution.
