Braintree, MA (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
As a leading Braintree, MA periodontist, Dr. Thomas Mone offers an excellent tooth replacement option for patients who are missing one or more teeth. Dr. Mone is familiar with tooth loss caused by tooth decay, periodontal disease, advanced age, and injury, and he is pleased to offer dental implants as a comfortable and strong alternative to more traditional forms of tooth restoration and replacement. Because implants are designed to look and feel just like real teeth, they are a preferred tooth replacement option for Braintree residents who want to look their best for the New Year.
Placing dental implants successfully requires a Braintree, MA periodontist to take several consecutive steps. First, a titanium post is inserted into the jawbone to become the supportive base for the finished implant. Titanium is the material of choice because it is most compatible with the body and has a high likelihood of fusing successfully to the jawbone without causing any adverse reactions. Once the post is inserted, it must be given time to fuse with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. This process typically takes several months to complete.
After the post has successfully integrated into the jawbone, it provides a very strong base for the implant. The next step involves securing abutments to the dental implant posts, and then finally attaching a natural-looking crown to the abutments. By the time the process is finished, patients will again have a full set of strong, functional teeth.
Braintree residents who are looking for a qualified Braintree, MA periodontist to replace their missing teeth in time for the New Year are encouraged to call Dr. Mone’s office and schedule an appointment. Not all patients are good candidates for dental implants, so it is important to talk to Dr. Mone and see if you qualify for the procedure.
