Dental Implants Treatments in Swampscott MA

North Shore Dental Implants Specialists

One of the best solutions for a lost adult tooth is a dental implant. Unlike other tooth replacement treatments, a dental implant replaces both the tooth’s crown and the tooth’s root. An implant post fuses to the jaw which provides many benefits compared to other dental solutions. First and foremost, an implant replaces the functionality and structure of the tooth. Compared to a dental bridge or another tooth replacement, dental implants last longer, are more durable, and provide less risks to your oral health. Not every dentist provides dental implants. If you are interested in getting a dental implants for yourself, or you have an implant and need to address a concern, please contact our team by giving us a call or using the form below.

Where Can You Get Dental Implants in Swampscott Massachusetts?

Dental implants are surgical procedure and are therefore not offered by every dentist. Similar to orthodontic treatments or wisdom tooth surgery, you need to go to a dental office that specializes in providing dental implants to their patients. Whiting Dental Arts is a modern dental practice that combines expertise with technology to provide our patients with the best dental services. We specialize in providing dental implants, same-day CEREC dental crowns, and other dental services. We also provide All-On-4 dental implants, also referred to as implant-supported dentures. While dental implants usually work as a singular replacement tooth, All-On-4 dental implants replace a full arch of teeth with only a few implant posts. For more information on full mouth implants, please visit our page on that treatment. If you are interested in learning more about treatment plan options, please give our office a call. 

What Do People Say About
Whiting Dental Arts?

Dental Implants vs Dental Bridges:

Two of the most common solutions for tooth loss are dental bridges and dental crowns. These procedures are both effective ways to both structurally and cosmetically solve issues with a smile. Dental bridges are false teeth that are held in place by being anchored into the existing healthy teeth. They are designed to look like your natural teeth and bridges can include multiple false teeth. Dental implants are a replacement for both tooth roots and tooth crowns. An implant post, usually made from titanium is surgically placed in the mouth, and a dental crown is later attached to the implant post. 

Pros Of Dental Implants

Dental implants tend to last longer than dental bridges as they are surgically attached to your mouth. Because the entire tooth’s structure is replaced and not just the tooth crown, dental implants function closer to normal healthy teeth. Dental implants have a very high 10-year success rate. Dental implants look just like health teeth and maintain the structure of your jaw. Dental bridges can put the abutment teeth (the teeth used to hold the bridge in place) at risk of decay, whereas dental implants do not have this drawback. 

Pros Of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges often less expensive than dental implants. The process of getting a dental bridge is usually quicker. This procedure doesn’t require surgery. Not all patients are good candidates for dental implants because it requires jawbone density in order to fully support the implant. By comparison, dental bridges do not have this issue and only require healthy surrounding teeth. 

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures

Above we discussed dental implants vs dental bridges, which are often solutions for a singular lost tooth or a group of teeth. However, there are also solutions to consider for replacing a full arch of teeth. Traditionally, removable dentures have been used by adults who have lost a majority of their teeth due to age, decay, or other factors. However, there are many drawbacks to removable dentures from how they slip and move to the fact that they are removable. All-On-4 Dental implants are a solution to these issues. Instead of a removable set of dentures, All-On-4 Dental implants fully replace your smile. Click below to learn more about this procedure.
