The treatment that has been consistently relied upon to replace missing teeth is a dental implant. They have high success rates and provide dentists with a range of options to treat and replace lost teeth. This restorative treatment option is available at CITIDental Tremont of Boston.
Seeking an alternative to bridges, patients have sought dental implants for both restorative and cosmetic benefits. A dental implant has the appearance, feel, and function of a natural tooth. Since they replace the root, they prevent other teeth from shifting out of place.
Dental implants have numerous advantages over fixed bridges or removable dentures. They provide an improved appearance, prevent bone structures from receding, can be better secured, and preserve more natural tooth structure. The treatment also involves crowns, which are placed following the stabilization of the replacement root.
Before considering dental implants, you must determine whether you are qualified to have this procedure. Your dentist can provide an evaluation and determine your candidacy. An x-ray and CT-scan will be performed to determine if adequate bone is available to place the implant.
Please call us today to schedule your consultation and determine if you qualify for dental implants.
