Dental Implants

Pembroke Duxbury dental implants dentist Marshfield Kingston MADental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are synthetic roots for various types of artificial teeth. Unlike a traditional bridge or dentures, a dental implant is permanently implanted in the jaw and acts as an artificial root. Following surgical placement in the jaw, the titanium implant will integrate into the bone as the original natural root did. This limits the possibility of movement that can lead to bone loss or further tooth loss. It also decreases the chance of developing periodontal disease.

If you are in need of tooth replacement, we will inform you of all your options and possible consequences. If dental implants are the solution for you, we will answer any questions you have and explain exactly what to expect before referring you to a trusted specialist for surgical placement of the implant or implants. After enough time has passed, typically two or three months, you will return to our offices. We will work with a lab to fabricate the perfect crown, bridges or dentures that will perfectly fit and attach to your implant, to restore your beautiful smile.

Dental implants are a practical, permanent solution for the replacement of missing teeth. They not only provide a stable base for crowns, bridges or dentures, they also protect the integrity of your jaw, and of your remaining natural teeth. Because they do not slip, they eliminate that source of embarrassment and potential discomfort.

Like a natural tooth, a dental implant can be easily brushed and flossed. As always, it is important to maintain a healthy oral care routine of at least twice-daily brushing, daily flossing and regular visits to your dentist for professional cleaning and examination. Dental implants can be maintained during routine visits to the dentist. They look and function like natural teeth.
