Medford Dental Implant Restorations
Losing one or more teeth can lead to a variety of consequences for patients including diminished oral health, a loss of self-confidence, and even damaged overall quality of life. At Giamberardino Dental Care, we want you to know that your smile doesn’t have to stay like this – in fact, it’s possible to regain strong, lifelike teeth that feel just like the real thing! Dental implants make this goal a reality for patients from Winchester, MA and surrounding areas. Contact our Medford office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Anthony Giamberardino, or if you have any questions for our friendly staff.
So why are dental implants so successful? The answer is simpler than you’d think. Your tooth is composed of two crucial components: the crown (the white portion that makes up your smile) and the root (the portion that’s hidden beneath the gum line). Traditional tooth replacement solutions only bother with the crown, which restores the tooth aesthetically. However, without a root in place to stimulate the jawbone, patients can experience oral deterioration leading to higher rates of additional tooth loss and a “hunched” facial appearance over time. Dental implants are the only reconstructive option today that replicates the entire structure of your natural smile providing exceptional health and cosmetic benefits.
Dental Implant Restorations
The first step of the dental implant process is the surgical placement of the implant itself, which functions as the new “root” of the tooth. Dr. Giamberardino will be happy to recommend a trusted specialist in the area to handle this portion of the procedure. Once you’ve successfully healed, you’ll return to our Medford, MA location so we can complete your brand-new implants with strong, quality restorations that beautifully compliment the rest of your smile.
Our recommendation for implant restoration will be affected by the number of implants you’ve had placed. In cases of single teeth, a dental crown is the best option allowing us to rebuild the lost structure without requiring nearby healthy teeth to be minimized. In cases of multiple teeth, an implant-retained denture can provide wider coverage and reliable support in a cost-effective fashion.
Implant-retained dentures are very similar to a traditional denture or dental bridge in appearance, but they’re actually designed to directly attach over a set number of dental implants allowing them to fit into a patient’s mouth much more securely. There’s no threat of looseness or slipping to worry about!
Dental implants offer countless amazing benefits to patients including revitalized oral health, impressive function, added convenience, and long-lasting quality. If you’d like to learn more, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
