Replacing your teeth has never been easier. At Back Bay Dental Care we offer in-house dental implant therapy. With dental implants you can enjoy permanent new teeth that last for an entire lifetime.
An implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into the jaw. As new bone fuses it in place, the implant can support tremendous weight, making it even stronger than a natural tooth. Over the implant is an abutment, which supports your fixed implant restoration, such as a crown, bridge or denture.
If you have a single missing tooth, then your implant essentially looks, feels and functions like an individual tooth. After the implant is placed, a porcelain crown is bonded over the top of it.
For 3 to 5 missing teeth, an implant-supported bridge may be the best plan. Supported by usually only two implants, the bridge spans from one to the other, replacing all of the missing teeth in its path.
Full upper and lower jaw replacements and dentures are available. When you need to replace all of your teeth at one time, this is perhaps the best way to go. Instead of wearing a large, removable prosthesis – the implant supported denture is slimmer and feelings more natural.
Depending on the type of dental implant restoration that you choose, you may also wan to take advantage of our immediate, same-day dental implants. With immediate dental implants you can enjoy new teeth in just one appointment.
