What You Need To Know About Dental Implants

If you are missing teeth, there are more options than just dentures. Dental implants are an increasingly popular solution for incomplete smiles, with aesthetic, functional, and convenience factors beyond what other dental restorations can offer.

At Premier Dental Group of Wellesley, MA, we offer dental implants that restore your smile to its best so you are comfortable and confident.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are replacements for the root and crown of a tooth that has fallen out or requires removal. The implant itself is shaped like a screw and is implanted into the jawbone. As the bone regrows around the implant, it becomes a sturdy base for an artificial tooth, which is permanently attached.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Dental implants are the preferred choice for many as they are permanent, natural-looking, easy to care for, and fully functional.

While dentures require removal for sleeping and cleaning, dental implants are firmly in place and will not shift in your mouth while eating. You can brush and floss them like your natural teeth.

Because dental implants use an artificial tooth tinted, shaped, and sized to match your natural teeth, they are discreet and attractive.

Dental implants from our Wellesley, MA, office can also improve the health and structure of your mouth. By filling the void from a missing tooth, you will be able to bite and chew more easily, and brushing will be more comfortable. Because a missing tooth creates a space for bacteria to grow and decay to spread, a dental implant protects your mouth from further damage or weakening of your jaw.

Are dental implants painful?

Because dental implants are surgically affixed, you will likely require a few days of recovery. Eating soft foods and trying an over-the-counter pain reliever should help with reducing sensitivity and discomfort. Once healed, your dental implants will feel just like your natural teeth, with no lingering pain.
