Implant Supported Restorations in Norwood
Crown and bridgework, partials, and dentures have long been the standard for replacing missing teeth. Today, however, dental implants provide patients with a stable, long-lasting solution. Instead of replacing only the crown of a missing tooth, an implant also replaces the root. This complete structure mimics nature’s design, promotes bone retention in the jaw, and ensures a durable, lasting result. In short, your dental implants will look, feel, and function like natural teeth. A single implant can replace one tooth, or multiple implants can secure a bridge, partial, or denture.
At Central Dental Associates, we have implant specialists in our Norwood, MA office who provide all phases of implant care, including implant placement. Our implant dentist will place small, biocompatible dental implant posts into the sockets left by your missing teeth. Then, over the course of a few months, your jawbone tissue will naturally integrate with the implant posts, forming a strong anchor for your replacement crowns.
Once the implant posts are fully integrated with the jaw, your dentist will work with our reputable dental lab to fabricate your replacement teeth. The doctor will fit and secure your crowns, bridge, partial, or denture in our Norwood office. He’ll also maintain your new dental implants at regular checkups and cleanings. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Patients report improved ability to chew and taste foods, more self-confidence, and a higher quality of life with dental implants.
In addition to replacing individual missing teeth, dental implants can be used to secure a slipping or uncomfortable denture. This is often a great option for patients who would like a more naturally functioning solution to missing teeth. In addition to enhancing comfort and esthetics, an implant-supported denture can actually curb the loss of bone tissue that accompanies missing teeth. As implant specialists, we can consult with you about all the options available for implant-supported teeth.
