If you have lost one or more permanent teeth, dental implants are an important option to consider. Dental implants can restore the aesthetics of your smile, but they are also good for your overall health. When you ignore a missing tooth, the bone in your jaw weakens. Without teeth stimulating the bone, it doesn't grow or stay dense. This puts your other teeth at risk for falling out. A loss in bone mass can also make your face look collapsed. Eating and speaking can also become difficult if you don't address missing teeth.
Dental implants can address all of these problems. A dental implant is a titanium post which functions as a tooth root. The bone fuses with the post and creates a strong foundation for prosthetic teeth. Crowns, which look and feel like your natural teeth, are attached to the titanium post. You'll be able to eat and speak as you could before, and your smile and confidence will be restored. Dental Partners of Boston also offer immediate dental implants. What used to take multiple procedures to complete can now be done in one visit under the right circumstances. If you're looking for dental implants in Boston, give us a call today!
When it comes to a dental emergency, it is crucial that you visit a dentist as soon as possible. Time is a major determining factor in what options are available to a patient, as well as how effective the emergency procedure will be. Adult teeth can get chipped, knocked out, or pushed deep into the gums. You may also lose a filling or a crown, or experience a toothache due to serious infection. At Dental Partners of Boston we prioritise dental emergencies; give us a call to schedule an appointment. Even if our office is closed, our answering service can forward your message to the dentist on call.
Good oral health means more than maintaining your teeth. You also need to consider your gums and jawbone. Many people have gum disease, also known as a periodontal disease, and don't even know it. But if the infection isn't treated there are negative consequences. Chronic bad breath, receding gums, sensitive teeth, pain while chewing, and loose teeth are just some of the risks associated with periodontal disease. The periodontal team at Dental Partners of Boston is well equipped to provide world class periodontal care to ensure that your gums and bones are healthy. We offer scaling and root planing, soft tissue grafting, bone grafting, and LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure).
Most people will need their wisdom teeth removed at some point in their lives. If not removed, wisdom teeth can grow sideways or become trapped under the gums (impacted). They can also create a flap of gum tissue that traps bacteria and food, leading to infection. Finally, impacted wisdom teeth can damage surrounding bone and teeth. The staff at Dental Partners of Boston are highly trained and experienced with wisdom teeth extraction.
Each doctor at Dental Partners of Boston has his or her specialization, which allows us to offer many different surgical options without sacrificing quality. We believe that a dental procedure is all about the patient; we work hard to help you stay comfortable during the oral procedure and to be satisfied with the results when it is done. If you have any questions about any type of oral surgery, please don't hesitate to contact our office for more information or to make an appointment.
