We offer comprehensive dental implant therapy right here in our South Hadley, MA practice, making it easier and more efficient for you to restore your smile.
What are Dental Implants?
An implant is a small, biocompatible rod that’s about the same size and shape as a tooth root. It’s set into your mouth at the location of your missing tooth, fusing with the bone and becoming a permanent part of your bite. Once fully integrated, our South Hadley dentist can attach a fixed restoration, such as a:
- Single tooth crown
- A multi-tooth dental bridge (on top of a pair of implants)
- Implant-supported overdenture (2-4 implants)
- Permanent hybrid denture (4+ implants)
Advantages of Dental Implants
Choosing dental implants over other types of tooth replacements (like bridges or partial dentures) gives you a stronger, natural feel to your bite. Implants are made to last a lifetime and are one of the best investments when it comes to restoring missing or extracted teeth.
When you care for your implants properly, they have the highest success rating of any modern-day dental restoration. Maintaining them is simple; brush and floss daily, and schedule a checkup at Newton Street Dental in South Hadley, Massachusetts twice per year! If your fixed restoration ever starts to wear out, our team at Newton Street Dental can update it with a newer one.
Our South Hadley implant patients have the advantage of digitally mapped treatments, thanks to our in-house 3D CT scanner. During your exam, we’ll be able to view every angle of your oral anatomy to pre-plan your implant’s placement for a more efficient procedure and faster recovery.
