Start-to-Finish Dental Implants
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants can replicate your natural teeth better than any other alternative. In fact, dental implants are considered the gold standard in teeth replacement. Atlantic Dental Partners is proud to provide patients in Malden and Jamaica Plain with excellence in complete restorative dentistry. This means that we have the ability to start and finish your implant process, beginning from your first consult until to your final implant restorations are put in place. Whether you are replacing a single tooth or securing a full denture to dental implants, we are confident we can help you regain the comfortable and natural-looking smile you deserve.
The Dental Implant Process
Dental implants rely on the surgical placement of a titanium post into the jawbone. This bio-compatible screw fuses to the jawbone through a natural process called osseointegration. The dental implant can now act as an artificial tooth root, to which a crown, denture or bridge can be attached. The revolutionary design of dental implants provides invaluable benefits to patients. Not only does the dental implant provide unrivaled stability for the prosthetic tooth but it also helps to prevent bone loss. When the jawbone is not properly stimulated with a tooth root, the bone will atrophy over time. This can lead to premature facial aging as well as compromise the way a traditional denture fits. Dental implants can mimic your natural teeth in function, feel and appearance.
Dr. Eskandar and Dr. Elmaleh bring distinguished training and experience when providing dental implants. Our practice has adopted the latest dental imaging systems to ensure your dental implants are placed with unsurpassed accuracy and success. Using the 3D cone beam technology, our dentists can look at beautiful, three-dimensional images of your entire oral and maxillofacial structures. This allows for the most accurate depiction of your jawbone density, tooth roots and surrounding nerves when placing a dental implant.
Dental Implant Before & Afters
Frequently Asked Questions
Do dental implants hurt?
Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone. During the healing process, you may experience some discomfort. However, once your implants are healed, you shouldn't experience any pain. In fact, some patients report forgetting they even have implants because they function and feel like their other teeth!
How long do dental implants last?
The dental implant posts should last a lifetime with proper care. However, because of the wear and tear we inflict on our teeth, it's possible that you may have to replace the restoration on top (either a crown, bridge, or denture) periodically.
Are dental implants safe?
Yes! Dental implants are made from biocompatible material, so they aren't harmful to your mouth or your body. The implants naturally fuse with your jawbone for more stable, reliable tooth replacement results.
