Dental Implants

If you have a missing tooth, you may find yourself hiding your smile from the world, in addition to experiencing difficulty with chewing and speaking.

Thanks to modern dentistry, patients with missing teeth can have their smiles restored with dental implants.

At Navid Family Dental & Associates in Peabody, MA, our team of dentists and dental professionals provide superior implant dentistry. Can we help you?

The Benefits of Dental Implants

​Long-Lasting Results

With proper care, dental implants can last for more than 40 years. While the prosthetic attached to the implant will eventually require replacement, the implant itself can last a lifetime.

Natural Appearance & Function

At the end of dental implant treatment, no one will be able to tell that your smile is not fully natural. Additionally, because implants replace tooth roots, they are just as strong and durable as your natural teeth.

Jawbone Support

When a tooth is lost, the jawbone can begin to atrophy where the roots of the tooth used to connect. This atrophy can lead to reduced bite strength and a distorted jawline. Fortunately, dental implants replicate tooth roots, so your jawbone receives necessary support. 

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium rods that replace the roots of teeth and fuse directly with the jawbone. A dentist or oral surgeon places implants surgically in the gums. Once the implant becomes fused with the jaw, a dentist can attach a crown, bridge, or denture to the implant. Because the implant is securely connected to the jawbone, there is little chance of the restoration coming loose, which makes dental implants far more attractive of an option than traditional restorations.

What Is the Dental Implant Process?

Dental implant treatment can take between four and six months from the initial consultation to the end result. While it is a relatively long treatment plan, the secure, durable, natural-looking results are more than worth the journey. Depending on factors like oral health, jawbone strength, and the number of teeth missing, every patient's implant timeline will be somewhat unique, but you can expect it to roughly follow this outline:
Step 1: Consultation

During a dental implant consultation at our office in Peabody, MA, one of our dentists will examine your mouth and jaw, and they will ask questions about your smile goals. If the doctor determines that implants are right for you, we can schedule your first surgery.

Step 2: Implant Placement

During this surgical procedure, one of our dentists will make a small incision in your gums. The doctor will carefully insert the titanium implant through the incision and then sew the incision shut.

Step 3: First Healing Period

This healing period lasts between four and six months. During this time, your titanium implant will fuse with your jawbone.

Step 4: Abutment Placement

Once the implant is securely attached to the jaw, a member of our team will attach a small connector, called an abutment, to the implant. The abutment is necessary for restoration attachment.

Step 5: Second Healing Period

During this shorter healing period, the gums will heal around the abutment. For most patients, this usually takes a few weeks.

Step 6: Attachment of Restoration

Finally, we can attach a crown, bridge, or denture to the abutment on your implant. Which restoration is right for you will depend on the number and location of the teeth you are missing.

Step 7: Smile!

Your tooth is now restored from root to crown. Enjoy your strong bite and natural-looking smile.

Dental Implants vs. Traditional Restorations

Here are some reasons why dental implants are superior to traditional bridges or dentures:
Lower Risk of Bone Loss at the Missing Tooth Site

Without stimulation from a tooth root, the jawbone will begin to deteriorate at the site of a missing tooth. Dental implants offer stimulation to avoid bone loss issues, while traditional dentures or bridges do not.

More Natural Look and Feel

As an aesthetic solution, dental implants offer patients the opportunity to enhance their smiles. Once integrated into the structure of the mouth, dental implants look and feel more like natural teeth than traditional restorations.

Lower Likelihood of Drifting and Crowding

Because they are permanently attached, titanium implants help surrounding teeth remain in a stable location. Removable bridges or dentures may create space for teeth to shift out of alignment, causing bite problems or other issues.

Higher Self-Esteem in Social Situations

Patients with dental implants have fewer dietary restrictions than those with traditional bridges or dentures, and they don't have to worry about their prosthetic falling out, leading to increased confidence when interacting in groups, on dates, and in meetings.

Easier Maintenance

Dental implants are cared for with the habits of good dentistry just like natural teeth, whereas traditional dental bridges and dentures have to be removed to be cleaned and are more likely to fall out and become damaged.

I started going there since 2017. They are very nice and very flexible on your schedule as well as insurance. They always remind me of my cleaning schedule and do the check up and share all the data with me. One of things I like the most, when I was working with Dr. Navid was the fairness in the evaluation and prioritizing what needs to be done first. Plus the quality of work was awesome, he pay attention to the finest detail.

I started going to Navi’s Family Dental & Associates after my long time dentist retired. The dental hygienist Sarah is so efficient and so pleasant. I definitely have a fear of the dentist, but surprisingly enough, Dr. Navid has a very calming effect. I will forever have a fear of the dentist, but this office does make it doable. View On Google

Candidacy for Dental Implants

Dental implants are the right restorative dentistry choice for many patients at our dental practice in Peabody, MA. In most cases, the highest quality candidates are those exhibiting the following traits:
Good Dental Health and Habits

All patients will undergo routine examinations to check for underlying issues before implant placement surgery. A healthy mouth and body ensures a stronger likelihood of long-term success.

Strong Jawbone

Implants are placed into the jawbone; therefore, it must be able to adequately support the implants. If you have experienced significant bone loss, you may be a candidate for bone grafting or a sinus lift. In certain cases, patients may qualify for All-on-4® dental implants.

Limited Use of Tobacco Products: 

Smokers are at a higher risk of implant failure than patients who do not smoke or use related products. If you smoke or chew tobacco, the dentist may recommend that you quit before undergoing implant surgery.
