At Boston Prosthodontics, we don’t believe you should have to live with compromised chewing ability or a conspicuous gap in your smile.
At our Boston, MA, practice, we offer dental implants, an advanced method of tooth restoration for patients missing one or more teeth.
So why should you invest in an implant-supported restoration?
The Life-Changing Benefits
of Dental Implants
Dental implants give excellent stability to your replacement teeth, allowing you to eat a wider range of foods, enunciate with greater clarity, and achieve a normal-looking smile. You can enjoy the foods you like, including whole fruits, steaks, and even chewing gum, without worrying that your dental restoration will shift.
Designed to Last
For the right candidates, dental implants are widely regarded as the best solution for missing teeth. Dental implants themselves are crafted from biocompatible titanium and when properly cared for, they can last a lifetime. Meanwhile, your implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture will be crafted from high-grade porcelain that is durable, natural-looking, and stain-resistant.
Improved Oral Health
Our teeth are constantly stimulating the bone tissue in the jaw. When you have a missing tooth, the jaw will begin to atrophy. Implants replace the tooth roots and are the only form of dental restoration that can stop this bone recession. Among many other benefits, this effect can help to protect your remaining natural teeth and contribute to good oral health in general.
Enhanced Quality of Life
Few things in life are more fundamentally enjoyable than savory meals, long talks with friends, and sharing smiles with those you love. Dental implants make it possible to experience these simple joys to the absolute fullest. Our natural-looking dental implant-supported dentures and other restorations give patients the confidence to show off their smiles with pride, boosting self-esteem and improving your quality of life.

Healthy Recovery Is Key To Successful Implants
Recovering From Surgery and Maintaining Your Dental Implants
Days One through Three
Be gentle around the treatment area in the days following implant placement. You should refrain from strenuous exercise and avoid eating hard foods that could disturb the treatment area. Change the bandaging or gauze frequently, and apply ice packs as needed to mitigate swelling. Most patients manage pain by using a low dosage of over-the-counter pain medications.
Weeks One and Two
During this time, the swelling will begin to subside. You should be eating soft foods to ensure your comfort. We recommend you regularly rinse your mouth with salt water to promote healing. We will schedule a post-operative appointment at our Boston, MA, office to monitor your recovery.
Months One through Six
In the months following implant surgery, osseointegration takes place. During this time, the implants will fuse to your jaw. It is essential to maintain good oral hygiene during this time to promote proper healing.
After you have fully healed from implant surgery, your abutments will be attached during a minor surgical procedure. In about two weeks, after your gums have healed, you can receive your permanent restoration. You should care for your implants and replacement teeth the same way you care for your natural teeth: brush twice daily and floss once a day. At-home oral care should be supplemented with regularly scheduled dental visits.
