Boston implant and cosmetic dentist Dr. Mark Beal now provides more options and advancements for patients than ever before. Even though oral hygiene science continues to develop and improve, sometimes teeth require repair or replacement from disease or damage. Of course, regular brushing, flossing, and dentist office visits keep teeth healthy for longer, sometimes a variation of dental implant technology is needed to rejuvenate not just the look, but the health of the smile.
Implants are a well-known and often-used method for repairing and replacing lost, broken or decaying teeth with permanent replacements. Though implants have long been a go-to solution for these problems, recent advancements in implant technology, materials and methods have provided more options for patients with better results and less recovery and downtime. An implant is a synthetic root, shaped like a post, which is threaded and surgically inserted into the jawbone of the patient. This root post is commonly made of titanium, which is the same metal used in hip and knee replacements, since it behaves so well when paired with human bone. Once the root is placed, a customized replacement tooth is fixed to the post. This natural-looking replacement tooth looks and feels like a normal tooth, and allows the patient to continue eating, drinking, speaking and living normally.
Ideal implant candidates are non-smokers with good oral health, which includes a sufficient amount of healthy bone in the jaw and sturdy, healthy gums without gum disease or deterioration. New developments have made implants more versatile and customizable than ever before. Some patients, who are missing a single tooth, need only one implant and replacement tooth to complete the repair. Those missing several teeth in a row can benefit from a set of strategically-placed implants that can serve as support for a larger, permanent bridge, which is a full set of replacement teeth connected together. Advancements in imaging and fabrication have reduced the handiwork and duration of implant creation and placement, allowing Dr. Beal to take advantage of unprecedented levels of detail and accuracy when designing and placing implants shaped precisely for each patient’s specific needs.
