DENTAL IMPLANTS

Custom payment plans may also be made depending on your financial situation. We know that the cost of dental work can feel daunting so will work with you to find a solution.
  • How Dental Implants Work Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screwlike posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function like real ones. We offer Single-Tooth, Multiple Teeth and Full Jaw Replacement dental implant options.
    • Single-Tooth Dental Implant- A dental can be put in to place if just a single tooth is missing. It is permanent and won’t damage adjacent teeth.
    • Multiple Teeth Implants- When multiple teeth are missing or you need to have teeth pulled dental implants can be put on multiple teeth and can give you a long-term solution to restoring your smile.
    • Full Jaw Replacement- Full Jaw Replacement dental implants provide a more stable, permanent alternative to dentures. Dental implants are fixed to your jaw permanently and do not need to be removed and if cared for correctly will last a lifetime.

  • Peri-Implantitis and LAPIP Peri-Implantitis is an inflammatory infection that forms around the soft and hard tissues of dental implants. Peri-implantitis can be influenced by outside factors such as systemic diseases, poor past dental history, poor oral hygiene, smoking, drug abuse and bruxism. At Dental Partners of Boston we will treat peri-implantitis with a nonintrusive treatment called LAPIP. This is a state of the art laser therapy procedure that can destroy the bacteria and the diseased tissue. LAPIP will get rid of the infections and can help bone to grow back.
  • Sinus Lift A sinus lift is essentially a bone graft. Over time the sinus bone can thin out making it hard to place dental implants in the upper portion of the mouth. Because this is a surgery it does carry a certain level of risk, the sinus lift has been performed all over the world with consistent results.
