Benefits of Dental Implants

When it comes to perks, the dental implant process has an abundance of them.
The most beneficial aspect of the procedure is that it addresses the problem
of a missing tooth at the core of the issue: the tooth root. Dr. Savas
accomplishes this by carefully inserting a cylinder-shaped titanium post
beneath the gum line. As the treatment area heals and the implant fuses with
the existing bone through a process called osseointegration, you’ll be
left with a stable, secure and completely functional restoration. Therefore, a
new world of possibilities and benefits will be open to you.

There is yet still more to gain from dental implant placement. Here are some
of the specific advantages that await you:

  • A 95% success rate
  • A Natural looking smile
  • No damage to the surrounding teeth
  • Durable and long-lasting construction
  • Up to 75% of your original chewing capacity restored
  • Replaces the entire tooth structure, from the root to the crown

Indications for Dental Implants

Dental implant placement is not just for patients in a particular age
demographic or with a certain number of missing teeth. Instead, it is a quite
versatile procedure that serves anyone with one or more missing teeth. In
addition to restoring the original functionality, having a dental implant
placed helps to prevent the teeth that surround a vacated space from shifting
or leaning, which can cause poor occlusion (bite) and possibly lead to gum
infection. Depending on how many teeth are missing, you have three main
options for restoration.

Missing Single Tooth

To replace a single missing tooth, Dr. Savas will carefully insert the dental
implant and then allow time for you to heal sufficiently. Later, we’ll
invite you back to our Worchester office to have a titanium abutment added.
It, too, plays a critical role in the process because it allows a final
restoration to be placed in a secure yet aesthetically pleasing way.

Missing Multiple Teeth

While a dental bridge and a partial denture are two traditional ways to
replace several missing teeth, the problem with both is they rely on the other
teeth for stability. That means that if some shifting occurs, the restoration
could be compromised.

An implant-retained denture is a better option because it allows a set of
prosthetic teeth to be securely and permanently fastened without any worry of
slipping, shifting or the prosthetics falling out of your mouth.

Missing All Teeth

The answer for a full set of missing teeth is the careful insertion of dental
implants. Dr. Savas will place four or more strategically positioned implants
for each arch. Additionally, the posts will be angled to allow for the most
stable and lasting reconstruction.

Then, we’ll design a custom set of dentures with snaps on their
underside that allow them to attach to the abutments. Therefore, you can rest
assured that your teeth will be replaced in the most effective and reliable
manner available.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

One of the reasons the dental implant process has such a high success rate is
that each patient is treated on an individual basis. That means no
“cookie cutter” plans. With such a high degree of customization,
the only way for your dentist in Worchester to generate a price for the
procedure is to visit for a consultation. By carefully assessing your needs
and the current state of your oral health, Dr. Savas can determine what you
will need to be fully restored.

Then, a treatment plan will be created. Based on what it entails, we’ll
generate an estimate so you can plan accordingly. The road to having your
smile restored starts with contacting us today to
