Dental implants benefit anyone who wants to replace missing or damaged teeth. Whether you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants can help give the smile you have always wanted. Dental implants with a restoration (crown, bridge or denture) are the closest thing to your natural teeth and are designed to last a lifetime with proper and conscientious care.
The doctors at Smileboston Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry are part of a limited number of prosthodontists in the Boston area who have the necessary education and training to surgically place an implant and create a crown, bridge, or denture. Your entire treatment is completed in one office, with one doctor, start to finish.
We have also found that some patients are told they are not ‘good candidates’ for dental implants or that their bone structure would be unable to support dental implants. This is not necessarily true. Most prosthodontists and general dentists are trained to place only one type of implant system. If you do not ‘qualify’ for that type of implant, it cannot be placed.
Our doctors work with a variety of dental implant systems, allowing them to find the right individual fit. After a careful study of your dental profile, the team at Smileboston Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry will determine which implant type and treatment process will work best for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a dental implant?
An implant is a man-made material that takes the place of the roots of the teeth on which a crown (single tooth), bridge (multiple connected teeth), or denture is secured. Divided into two basic groups, implants can either be inserted into the bone or placed on top of the bone. The type of implant selected is based on the amount of bone available.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Anyone, at any age, can be fitted for implants, as long as their health allows. Even if you have been told in the past that you are not eligible for implants, our doctors have the education, experience and training necessary to give you the smile you want.
How long can an implant last?
Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper professional maintenance and conscientious home care.
Does insurance cover cosmetic and/or implant procedures?
It depends on your dental insurance plan. The Smileboston front office team are experts at working with insurance claims and will work with you to maximize your allowable benefits.
