Dental bridges vs. Dental Implants, Medford, What’s Right for You?

August 5, 2015

Woman smiling with dental implants from giamberardino dental careDental bridges are tried and tested. The first dental bridge was used 1000s of years ago as jewelry! In 700 BCE, the Etruscans adorned their teeth and filled in gaps with precious metals to display their wealth. Many people think that dental implants are a relatively new smile restoration option by comparison, but actually the Mayans who lived only 100 years later used sea shells, jade, and other human or animal teeth for restoration. Despite the rudimentary methods, these implant procedures were actually quite successful. Skulls discovered in recent years show that these materials fused with the bone, and the bond has lasted long after the patient’s death. So, how’s a modern patient to choose? Dr. Anthony Giamberardino and his Medford, MA team are here to help you choose the restoration method that’s right for you, but first, we recommend finding out more about each treatment. Call to schedule a tooth replacement evaluation and consultation today.

Is It Time to Get Dental Implants?

160537986Dental implants can make a big difference in your life if you have missing teeth to replace. Dentures can be challenging after a long period of wear. If you have dentures made from plastic and cast metal, you may have experienced irritation to your gum tissue. Denture wearers may experience slippage and movement while talking or eating. Dentures need to be replaced every five to seven years and can also contribute to the damage of your bone and facial structure if worn too long. If you are ready to find a dentures alternative, you can make an appointment with Dr. Giamberardino today.  Dr. Giamberardino is an experienced dental implant dentist. Dr. Giamberardino and his team at proudly serve patients throughout Medford, MA, Winchester, Somerville, Malden, Everett, and surrounding communities.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

  • NaturalDental implants are actually tiny titanium posts. Titanium is naturally compatible with the human body.
  • ComfortDental implants are surgically implanted into your jaw bone. As the implant heals it will fuse with your jaw bone which creates stability and prevents slippage.  The stability makes it easier to chew, bite food and speak confidently.
  • VersatilityDental implants can be used in a variety of ways to replace one tooth, an implant supported bridge, or an entire set of implant supported dentures.
  • Long Term ResultsDental implants can last a lifetime with consistent oral hygiene.
  • Bone Stabilization– Each of your teeth is surrounded by bone which exists entirely to support your teeth and facial structure. When a tooth is lost, the bone surrounding it will cease to have a function and become reabsorbed by the body. Dental implants can prevent this bone from reabsorbing and preserve your facial bone structure.

Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants

February 12, 2014

Dental implants, yo.Many people consider a smile a first impression, and when you are not confident in your smile, it can be detrimental to your self-esteem. If you have teeth missing from your smile, you may lack the confidence it takes to make a memorable first impression. Aside from being aesthetically displeasing, having missing teeth can be detrimental for the rest of your teeth, as they will start to shift to fill the empty space. Luckily, Dr. Giamberardino is able to offer a permanent solution to your dental woes with the help of dental implants.

Your journey to dental implants begins with a consultation with Dr. Giamberardino. There, he will be able to fully assess your smile in its current state, and he will speak with you about what your long term goals are regarding your smile. During the consultation, you will also be able to address any questions or concerns you may have, as we want you to be informed every step of the way.

If it is determined you are a candidate for dental implants, the procedure commences with embedding a titanium screw into the socket where the missing tooth is. This screw will act as a new tooth root, and will fuse with your bone. After that, the abutment is added, which is essentially a support system for the implant and the crown. The tooth-resembling crown is added after the abutment, completing your new, beautiful smile!

One of the great things about dental implants is the fact they can last a lifetime, and they look like your natural teeth! Dental implants are easy to take care of, and, most importantly, they can restore your self confidence. When you are confident in your smile and yourself, that confidence has the potential to leak into many areas of your life, resulting in a more well-rounded life! If you have any questions on dental implants and how Dr. Giamberardino can help, make an appointment today!
