Dental Implants

Dental Implants in Cambridge

Dental implants are restorations that are surgically attached to the jawbone, providing a permanent solution for tooth loss. Our dentists are able to offer patients complete dental implant procedures for one tooth or multiple teeth, depending on the level of tooth loss. The cost, healing time, and invasiveness of the procedure are greater for dental implants than other options, but many patients prefer the longevity, look, and comfort that dental implants offer.

How Dental Implants Work

The dental implant process is a two-part procedure that requires several months between appointments. The implant itself is a post made from titanium that is inserted into the gums and reaches down to the jawbone. After we place the implant, it will need time to fully heal and fuse to the bone (a process known as osseointegration) before we attach a pontic (a false tooth).

Learn if You Are a Candidate for Dental Implants

Dental implant surgery requires a significant healing process, which is why we screen candidates to make sure they have good oral health before recommending dental implants as a potential restorative option. When you come in for a consultation, we will look for signs of bone loss or gum loss that could require specific precautions or an alternative treatment plan.
