Losing a tooth can be a devastating event. Not only will you lose your self-esteem along with your tooth, but you’ll also develop a new list of complications, like difficulty chewing your favorite foods. You don’t need to live with an incomplete smile. Now, you have more options than ever to treat tooth loss. Besides traditional solutions, you can also replace your missing teeth with dental implants in Braintree. We will rebuild your smile using a treatment that looks and feels natural.
Every tooth is invaluable to your dental health and functions. When even one is missing, it creates more than aesthetic issues because you lose more than just the crown. The root is also missing, so your jawbone slowly deteriorates because it isn’t being stimulated.
Over time, your remaining teeth lose support and shift out of alignment. This increases your risk of several new oral health issues, like additional tooth loss. As you lose more teeth, it can be a struggle to maintain a balanced diet, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies.
You can stop the complications of tooth loss and restore your smile by filling the missing space with a prosthetic. After an initial consultation and discussing your desired results, we’ll create a customized treatment plan.

It is held in place by reshaping the adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them.

A dental implant mimics your natural tooth. A titanium implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to act as a new root. An abutment is placed on the post to connect a custom-made crown. This allows you to enjoy the next best thing to your real tooth using a solution that can last for a lifetime with the right aftercare.
A dental implant is the only treatment to restore the entire structure of the tooth. As a result, you’ll enjoy a variety of benefits that aren’t possible with a fixed bridge, such as:
