Haverhill Implant Dentist Restores Smiles
In the past, dental bridges, partials, or full dentures were the best—and only—solutions for anyone who needed to replace multiple teeth. But today there’s a great alternative to these traditional options – dental implants. With dental implants, it’s possible for patients like you to achieve results that successfully mimic not only the look but also the feel of natural teeth.
That’s because implants have a tooth-and-root structure, just like our real teeth. During the first phase of care with dental implants, one or more titanium implant posts are surgically placed in your jawbone, where your natural roots used to be. The number of implants you receive during your surgical procedure will depend on the type of prosthetic you need to repair your smile. After your smile has had time to heal, the tissue in your jaw will grow around your implants, creating a strong foundation for your prosthetic.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are versatile enough to be used in a variety of circumstances whether you need to replace just a single tooth or you need to replace a few teeth. While a traditional crown or bridge can sometimes help in these cases, you can achieve more outstanding results with an implant-supported prosthetic. Similarly, a full denture will help you replace a full row of teeth, but a denture supported by dental implants will give you even better results.
If dental implants are right for you, Dr. Arakelian will help you design your treatment plan and refer you to a trusted surgeon for the first phase of your treatment. Following your recovery, you’ll return to our Bradford office to have your implants uncovered and your prosthetic attached.
The success rate for dental implants is high, but not everyone is a great candidate for implant treatment. To be a candidate, you must have two things: a healthy jaw and a strong immune system. During a special consultation at our dental office in Bradford, MA, we can help you determine if dental implants are right for you. If they’re not, Dr. Arakelian would be happy to recommend an alternative solution. As a restorative dentist committed to exceptional care, Dr. Arakelian will help you find the treatment that’s right for you.
