DENTAL IMPLANT

Dental Implants in Boston, MA

Dental implants are a modern solution to providing you with permanent replacement teeth that are strong, natural-looking and feeling, and offer superb, safe, and predictable long-term results. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime and have a success rate of up to 98%. The results of dental implant therapy are esthetically pleasing, and once your implants are in place you will feel like you have your original teeth back.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM A CANDIDATE FOR DENTAL IMPLANT TREATMENT?

In general, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for an implant procedure. Patients should have healthy gums and adequate bone to hold the implant and be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental exams. Heavy smokers, people suffering from uncontrolled chronic disorders such as diabetes or heart disease, or patients who have had radiation therapy to the head/neck area need to be evaluated on an individual basis.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING DENTAL IMPLANT TREATMENT?

Dr. Nevins performs implant placement as an outpatient surgery from our state-of-the-art medical center, usually under a local anesthetic. The treatment has two stages. First the implant, a tiny piece of titanium that forms a foundation for attaching the future crown restoration, is surgically placed with the utmost precision utilizing 3-D software and CT scans.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE TREATMENT?

After your treatments we will provide you with detailed postoperative instructions, which if followed properly will result in the best possible outcome and a short recovery time. Dr. Nevins will prescribe medications as needed, such as an oral antibiotic as a precaution against infection, and will provide you with a prescription pain relief medicine to help with any discomfort from the treatments.
