Do you have one or more missing teeth? Dental implants offered by your Milford, MA, dentists at Milford Dental Group, Dr. Peyman Beigi, and Dr. Nina Raeisian, will fill the gaps in your smile.

Dental implants feel and look like real teeth

Dental implants are titanium posts that become the roots of your new teeth. The posts are added during minor oral surgery and soon bond to your bone. Because your implants are attached to your jawbone just like natural teeth, you probably won't notice any difference when you bite and chew.

Crowns, the restorations attached to the tops of dental implants, are made from an impression of your mouth. The dental laboratory uses the impression as a mold to create crowns that look natural and match the shade of nearby teeth.

Implants offer excellent biting power

Loss of biting power can be an issue if you choose a restoration option that only replaces the tops of teeth. As a result, you may have to give up eating raw vegetables, sticky foods, and other favorites. Fortunately, your implants give your new teeth the strength to bite, grind, and chew a variety of foods.

Dental implants replace any number of missing teeth

Although replacing one tooth with a dental implant is common, implants can also be used to restore multiple missing teeth. You can even attach your dentures to dental implants. Implant-supported dentures offer better biting power and comfort. You may only need as little as four implants to attach dentures to your upper or lower jaw.

Dental implants rarely need to be replaced

Once your implants bond to your jawbone, they'll probably remain attached for your entire life. Although you'll need to replace the crowns periodically, the implants themselves won't need to be removed. When you look at the lifetime costs of the various tooth restoration methods, you'll probably discover the implants actually cost less.

Keeping your implants healthy is easy. Schedule regular checkups for your dental implants with your Milford, MA, dentist, brush and floss daily, and don't use your teeth to open packages or gnaw on ice cubes or extremely hard foods.
