Dental Implants

dental implants services from Dental Implants Woburn Dental implants are widely regarded as the best option for replacing missing teeth. They last longer, and are more stable than any alternative, for one simple reason: Implants are the only way to replace tooth roots. Other options, such as traditional dentures and bridges, only replace the visible portion of teeth.

What is a dental implant?

An implant is a small cylinder, usually made of titanium. It is implanted in the jawbone, replacing the root portion of the missing tooth. A small connector, called an abutment, is attached to the implant and to the restoration. This versatile technique can be used to replace any number of teeth because they can support full dentures, individual crowns, or specially designed bridges.
The process may vary for each patient, but it is generally completed in several phases. Preliminary procedures may include extractions or bone grafting, depending on your situation. The actual implant placement procedure is a minor oral surgery. The area is numbed in advance, and we offer the option of sedation. Many patients comment that the surgery and healing are surprisingly comfortable. Once the bone has healed and attached itself to the implant, the abutment and then final restoration are added.

Why choose implants?

Replacing the root, the part of the tooth we never see, might not sound very important – but it is. A natural tooth root does more than just keep the tooth in place. When you bite down, the pressure is transferred to the bone. This stimulation is essential for maintaining bone strength, just as exercise is essential for maintaining muscle strength. Implants mimic this action and help maintain bone quality and quantity, preventing the bone loss that is commonly associated with tooth loss.
The benefits include:
  • Implants have a 95 percent success rate
  • Your new teeth will look and feel natural
  • Enjoy your favorite foods again, with chewing efficiency and stability comparable to natural teeth
  • Oral hygiene is simple, with no worries of particles trapped under a dental bridge
  • With good hygiene and dental care, implants can last the rest of your life
Dental implants have distinct benefits for anyone who is missing teeth. However, we understand that everyone has different preferences and needs. That is why we offer a variety of options for tooth replacement and other dental concerns.

I'm just coming back to the practice after moving out of state for almost a decade. Dr. Moutevelis is the best, and if I had any say, I would absolutely forbid him from ever retiring! Everyone in the office is the perfect balance of professional and friendly. The space is super clean, comfortable, and modern. They also offer a wide range of appointment times to work around funky schedules. I would recommend Dr. Moutevelis to patients of all ages for trustworthy and compassionate dental care.
