Why dentists in Massachusetts recommend the dental implant procedure

Massachusetts recommend the dental implant procedure

Dental implants are considered the best tooth replacement option available today. With advances in implant dentistry, most patients are candidates. Read on to learn why Massachusetts dentists like Dr. George Moutevelis recommend the dental implant procedure.

Very successful

Clinical studies document the long-term success rate of dental implants at over 95 percent – the highest of any tooth replacement treatment. While every case is different, and skill of the dentist is an important factor, a dental implant can be successful in a patient with low bone density, osteoporosis, or diabetes. Once jawbone has integrated with the implant, it looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth. With good hygiene, it can last a lifetime.

Bone preservation

When a tooth is lost, the body senses that bone is no longer needed in that area. Bone tissue diminishes rather quickly in a natural process called resorption. As a result, the mouth begins to look collapsed aging facial appearance dramatically. A dental implant is the only tooth replacement solution that becomes part of the jawbone in a symbiotic relationship. Living bone tissue fuses with the implant, holding it securely in place. The implant, in turn, provides vital stimulation, just a like a natural tooth root, to keep bone strong and dense.


While individual tooth replacement is the most common application, dental implants can also be used to:

  • Retain fixed bridgework, replacing multiple consecutive missing teeth. There is no need to grind down adjacent healthy teeth, since implants anchor the bridge.
  • Provide stability for a removable partial denture.
  • Support a full denture. As few as four implants can hold a whole arch of teeth, with incredible stability. Implant-retained dentures may be removable or fixed.

There are many other good reasons dentists recommend dental implants. Call our Woburn, Massachusetts office at (781) 315-4456 to schedule a consultation and learn more.

I hadn't been to the dentist in quite a while, so I was very nervous about going. I had been to some sham dentist before. (Ones that fill teeth that don't need fillings) Dr. Moutevelis is great at what he does. The ladies at the front desk are so friendly Dr. Moutevelis' dental assistant Becky is very caring & makes sure that you are comfortable during the entire procedure. The office is nice & clean & it has a homey atmosphere. I would highly recommend this office. I have since moved away & would drive the 2 hours just to go to this dentist!
