More on Dental Implants in West Roxbury:
Dental implants are one of many restorative procedures, like dentures and bridges. Dental implants consist of several parts:
- There's a titanium post that's inserted into the jawbone
- A screw that secures an abutment over the titanium post
- A crown matching the rest of your teeth is placed above the abutment
The titanium post is surgically inserted into your jaws to replace missing tooth root. It provides stability and strength, and prevents weakening and shrinkage of the jawbone. After placing the titanium post, the dentist will seal your gums and after waiting 3 to 6 months for osseointegration to occur, which is the process of the post fusing to the rest of your jawbone. Afterwards, your dentist re-opens the area above the titanium post, inserts a screw, places an abutment above the screw and secure a crown on top that matches the rest of your teeth.
Taking Care of Your Implants:
- Like the rest of your teeth, make sure you brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss every day, at least once before bed.
- A change in diet is beneficial. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and avoid sugary foods to prevent the accumulation of plaque.

- They restore bite and chewing function.
- They fill gaps to give you a full smile.
