The best way to replace lost teeth is with the use of dental implants. Whether they are visible in the front of the mouth or
needed for stability to chew a full variety of foods in the back, implants can help you regain a beautiful and healthy smile.
Removable dentures and bridges rest on top of the gums, but dental implants are placed in the jaw and come up from under the
gums, very much like your original tooth did. The restoration placed on the implant post appears so life-like, it’s as if you
grew a new tooth!
Implants can be used to replace one or several lost teeth. Even people who have no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t move around when they talk and stay in place all night. Because we handle the entire process from implant placement to crown fabrication, there’s no need to be referred to another office.
Ask anyone who wears dentures what the worst part is, and they’ll probably say it’s having their teeth slide, tilt, or slip
while they’re eating. Using denture adhesive to try to keep their teeth from moving is frustrating and tedious. But now, at
Woburn Dental Associates, we offer our denture patients an alternative – overdentures.
We place just a few dental implants that provide solid support for your dentures. Your teeth will be “locked” into place so they won’t move. When ready for cleaning, they snap right off. Say goodbye to messy creams! Call to schedule a consultation to determine if you’re a candidate for overdentures.
Did you settle for dentures because you were told insufficient bone density meant you couldn’t have implants? Would you prefer to have the stability and strength of implants instead of frustrating dentures? You will be happy to know that we may be able to employ a breakthrough called mini implants. Just like regular implants, mini implants may be used to anchor your dentures securely, eliminating slippage and trapped food. They are placed in one visit and are virtually painless. You can eat the same day you receive them. Additionally, they can often be placed where regular implants cannot, so you can receive the benefits of mini implants even if you are not a candidate for regular implants.
We are also happy to offer our patients immediate load implants. Candidates for this option would receive four to six implants that secure permanent dentures that never need to be taken out. The part that makes patients happiest is that you can arrive in our office with missing or unhealthy teeth and leave with beautiful, functioning teeth – all in the same day. The strategic positioning of these four to six implants allows strongly supported new teeth. Immediate load implants can withstand pressure immediately without having to wait for the bone to heal around them.
Don’t live with missing teeth any longer! Call (781) 241-4288 for a no-obligation implant consultation today to determine your suitability for dental implants.
