Dental Implants – Belmont, MA
A Long-Lasting Tooth Replacement Solution
An estimated 50 million Americans wear prosthetic dental devices – bridges, partials, or dentures. Many of these people struggle with ill-fitting or loose dentures. If you’d like a more permanent and stable solution to replace missing teeth, ask Dr. Salibian about dental implants in Belmont.
Made of biocompatible metal, dental implants are small posts that replace tooth roots. Each implant can secure a single crown, or a few implants can anchor a denture, partial, or bridge. Dr. Salibian works with trusted oral surgeons and prosthodontists in an interdisciplinary approach to implant procedures.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants can transform your quality of life. Denture wearers no longer need to hassle with messy creams or intensive daily denture care routines. Instead, snaps on the base of the denture fasten to heads of the implant posts, providing dependable stability. With implants, you can also eat what you like, whenever you like, as if your natural, healthy teeth were still intact.
Not only will they improve your day-to-day life, but dental implants have unique health benefits that you can’t get with other replacements. Because they are rooted in your jawbone, they provide your jaw with the stimulation that it needs to stay strong and healthy. When you lose teeth, your jawbone can deteriorate overtime if they aren’t replaced with dental implants. Dental implants are also easy to care for, and they’re the longest-lasting replacement available, as they can last for a lifetime with proper care.
Indications for Dental Implants
Whether you’re missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or your whole smile, we can successfully use dental implants to replace and restore your teeth. Here are the different types of restorations that we use to bring back the look, feel and function to your smile:
Missing Single Tooth
If you’re missing a single tooth, you can replace it with an implant-retained dental crown to complete your grin. We fabricate this custom-made crown to match the size, shape, and color of your natural dental structure. This gives you a seamless tooth replacement that keeps you healthy and maintains your appearance.
Missing Multiple Teeth
Are you missing multiple teeth consecutively? Dr. Salibian can use an implant-retained dental bridge to literally “bridge” the gap in your smile with a custom-made prosthetic. Dental implants on either side of your gap will anchor your bridge in place, allowing for a full and functional set of teeth.
Missing All Teeth
If you’re missing all of your teeth, you can still receive the benefits of dental implants. We can use implant-retained dentures to restore complete rows of teeth with the security, strength, and health advantages of dental implants. After implants are strategically placed in your jawbone, we will attach your dentures to give you confidence to eat, speak, and laugh.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of dental implants can vary based on factors like the number of teeth you’re missing, where you’re missing them, and the condition of your oral health. The best way to receive a fair and precise estimate is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Salibian. He will carefully examine your oral health, the strength of your jawbone, and where you’re missing your teeth to develop a personalized treatment plan that will include an estimated cost.
