If embarrassing incidents with your dentures—or the concern about them happening—are worrying you, we can introduce you to an alternative that offers one of the biggest advantages of dental implants in a cost-effective solution. Implant-supported dentures are similar to traditional dentures except in one very important respect: They’re fixed in your mouth with permanent titanium dental implant posts instead of unreliable adhesive creams. With a multispecialty team consisting of doctors with extensive implant dentistry training, we can provide a comprehensive range of dental implant services, including implant-supported dentures in Chestnut Hill, MA. We use low-radiation cone beam CT scan equipment to ensure you are exposed to as little radiation as possible while we do the imaging necessary to plan your placement procedure. In some instances, we may be able to adapt your existing dentures to attach to implant posts. Why not schedule a consultation now so we can discuss your treatment? You’ll find our unique group approach to consultations invaluable in understanding your treatment plan and range of options.
Offering complete implant-related treatment under one roof includes procedures which might be necessary before you have dental implants placed. For instance, if you still have some unhealthy, unsalvageable teeth we will need to remove them to make room for the implants. We can generally perform tooth extractions during the same visit. Dental implant posts require a strong jaw to support them. If your jaw has weakened or deteriorated as a result of missing teeth or advanced gum disease, we can restore it through a procedure called bone grafting. This innovative treatment involves placing a small portion of bone material in the area of the decay and giving it time to fuse and strengthen. We may also do guided tissue regeneration to stimulate natural healing after grafting. Always expect the most comprehensive and highest quality of care from the extensively certified, qualified, and experienced team here at Hammond Pond Dental Group in Chestnut Hill, MA!
