What Are Dental Implants?

Made from titanium, a dental implant post is an artificial tooth root set into the jaw. This builds a strong and long-lasting anchor for a wide variety of restoration options. We can then place a natural-looking replacement tooth on the implant, which improves the function and health of your smile. Our team works with you to match the color of your existing teeth to ensure your smile is complete and aesthetically pleasing.

Beginning the Process of Dental Implants

Our dentists make sure to take the time to answer any questions you may have about the procedure and work to alleviate any fear or anxiety you may experience. We will also check your gums and treat any disease present before we continue with the implant treatment.

We're committed to offering the latest dental imaging technology and will use either a CT or TRIOS® Scanner to take digital impressions of your teeth and jaws. Our team does this to ensure you have the required bone density to secure your new implants successfully. Once everything has been mapped, we will surgically place the implants into your jaw.

When your mouth has healed sufficiently, our dentists will place your custom-made restorations, ensuring angle and bite. The entire healing process usually takes between eight and twelve weeks. Over the next few months, our team will schedule follow-up appointments to check on your progress and make sure everything heals and functions correctly. Should you have any concerns, we are always available to answer any questions.

Expert Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts

Over time, missing teeth can cause bone loss or decreased bone density. A bone graft takes a piece of organic or synthetic bone and attaches it to your jaw where needed. This enhances the strength of your jaw to support a dental implant. A sinus lift is a specialized bone graft done to the upper jaw. Should your situation require more complex surgery, we will refer you to a trusted local specialist to meet your needs. Our North Dartmouth dental implant team provides you with the expert service and care you can trust for reliable and long-lasting results.

Skillful Tooth Extractions

Should we have to make space for your implant, or if you have a broken or decaying tooth, we may have to do an extraction to help ensure the success of your procedure. Our team's top priority is to always preserve your natural smile, and we will only extract a tooth when absolutely necessary. Most extractions are performed in the office by our team. 

Implanted-Supported Restorations for a Beautiful Smile

Once your implants have been placed in your jaw, we send out the digital scans we took of your mouth to a top-quality lab. They will create your replacement teeth based upon our specifications and your desired results. When we receive your new teeth, our implant dentists will carefully attach them, ensuring proper fit, function, and comfort.
