Secure your smile with dental implants
Dental implants are the most recommended tooth replacement solution on the market today – by doctors and patients alike. Why? Because instead of just replacing the visible portion of the tooth, or the crown, dental implants replace the root of the tooth, which serves an important function in maintaining the health and integrity of the rest of your mouth and underlying jawbone.
At Seabreeze Dental in Mattapoisett, MA we offer dental implants as a permanent replacement option for patients missing one or more teeth. Statistics show that nearly 2/3 of adults over 35 are missing at least one permanent tooth—so, if you are one of them call us to set up a dental implant consultation with us today.
In addition to being visually upsetting, having a missing tooth or several missing teeth has several health consequences. After losing a tooth, the jawbone and surrounding tissue begin to deteriorate. Because dental implants are secured directly into the jawbone in place of the missing tooth’s root, this deterioration can be stopped.
How do dental implants work?
At our Mattapoisett dentist office, we surgically place the implant into your jaw, and a period of a few months is required for the implant to heal and fuse with the jawbone. Once that process is complete and the implant is secure, we will fit you with a natural looking restoration, like a tooth-colored crown, bridge, or dentures to perfectly match your natural teeth. In fact, once they’re placed, dental implants and restorations look and function just like your natural permanent teeth.
