Dental Implants 

Having a missing tooth can have serious effects on the health of your teeth and your confidence in your smile. When losing an adult tooth, many seem to panic and wonder if their smile will ever be complete again. At Beacon Dental Group we offer for our patients in Boston, Massachusetts the restorative and cosmetic dental procedure of a dental implant. 

Generally, a dental implant is made of two main parts, the implant itself and the tooth restoration that will be securely attached giving you a new tooth.

Implant Placement

Dental implants are a permanent restoration for your smile, what makes them permanent and secure is the implant. The implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed into the area of the jaw bone where the tooth is missing. This tiny post will act as your new tooths’ tooth root, providing stability. 

We recommend dental implants to maintain the health of your jaw bone and surrounding tissues where your tooth was lost. When we chew, our roots stimulate the bone keeping it healthy, without stimulation your bone and tissues can start to deteriorate. 

Implants can be used to support many dental restorations along with a single tooth such as a dental bridge or dentures.

Implant Restoration 

For a single-tooth dental implant, a custom-made artificial tooth crown will be made to securely attach to the implant. Each restoration made will completely resemble the size and shape of your natural tooth. 

Restorations are made out of a porcelain material making them resistant to decay, durable, and give off the appearance of a natural tooth due to its glossy sheen.
