Have you lost a tooth to decay or gum disease? Dental implants are an excellent solution for the replacement of missing teeth.

Boston periodontist, Dr. Thomas Mone performs dental implants in Quincy, MA for patients who wish to have a more permanent solution for their dental restoration.
Dental Implants Placed by a Boston Periodontist
Teeth implants are placed in stages. Our Boston periodontist will first place the base of the implant, the titanium post, into your jaw bone. Titanium is utilized for various implants, as it is compatible with the body. When implanted by your Boston periodontist, they are able to fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration. This takes place over a period of several months and creates a strong bond for the base of your implants. At this point, abutments are secured to the posts of your implants which will serve as connectors between the implants and the crowns. Crowns are the only portion of implants that are visible. Abutments make dental crowns appear as if they rise up from the gum line, just like your natural teeth.
To place implants successfully, there must be sufficient density in the jaw bone. Our Boston periodontist can help you determine if you are a good candidate although bone grafting may be an option to prepare you for the procedure. This can be done during your dental implant consultation.
The Versatility of Dental Implants Placed by a Boston Periodontist
Implants are versatile, and though on their own they are as the closest simulation of your natural teeth, they may also be used to support other dental appliances. Dental implants have been placed to anchor dental bridges for one or two missing teeth in Quincy, MA and also to lend stability to a full set of dentures.
