Lexington, MA - Dental Implant Restorations
Dr. Sarah Haven Davis provides high-quality dental implants restoration in Lexington. If you are considering replacing one or more missing teeth with dental implants, our dentists are here to assess, coordinate, and restore your complete implant process.
Dr. Davis and her associate Dr. Jocelyne Bourji offer a choice of the best materials including porcelain, zirconia, e.max, gold, and porcelain fused to metal. These materials offer specific qualities that can be used alone or in combination with each other to better replicate the beauty of your natural smile and provide a stable bite to restore function.
The Dental Implant Process
When being assessed for this procedure, your teeth will be examined, your jawbone volume will be observed through imaging, and your gum health will be evaluated. If you need treatment such as bone grafting or periodontal care, these procedures will be done prior to the implant placement.
The actual implantation of titanium posts is performed by one of our trusted partners who will perform the surgery. These posts are inserted into the jaw where they integrate with the bone and become an alternative tooth root, supplying a strong and natural foundation for a number of dental restorations.
Dental Implants Support a Variety of Prosthetics
From single tooth replacement to full arch restoration, dental implants can support the prosthetic that best meets your needs. The following are typical restorations that are supported by implants:
- Crowns – to replace individual teeth
- Bridges – to replace a row of missing teeth
- Hybrid Dentures – a permanent method of replacing a full arch of teeth
- Overdentures – a removable option to replace an arch of teeth
After your implant is placed, our Lexington dental implant prosthodontists will place either a temporary prosthetic or in some cases, if you are replacing one tooth with an implant-supported crown, we can fabricate that crown as soon as you receive your implant. We can also expedite the process for implant supported dentures at our Lexington practice. If you require a temporary restoration, your permanent restoration will be placed after a healing period of three to six months. You will always be given aftercare instructions to aid in the healing process and maintenance of your implant supported prosthetic(s).
Excellent Results and Comfort Throughout
Dr. Davis and Dr. Bourji are both perfectionists when it comes to crafting your restoration. From expert color matching to ensuring a comfortable and proper bite, they will only be satisfied when your prosthetic looks right and functions properly. In addition to providing consistently superior results, our dentists incorporate the latest relaxation technology to make your experience during your procedure a positive one.
