Your teeth roots, though unseen, are as important to your smile as your teeth. They not only keep your teeth in place, but they also stimulate your jawbone to keep it healthy. Without roots, your bone deteriorates, giving your face a “sunken-in” look and putting your dental health at risk. That’s what makes dental implants in Peabody such a great teeth replacement! Your dentist will embed implants in your jaw, where they perform the same function as your natural roots.Just like a real tooth Read Transcript
I had an implant done about five years ago or so. The tooth was, I guess it was very deteriorated, and that was my option. I must say the implant procedure, while it does take some time because there's a lot of different steps, that it was totally painless. I never had any problem during the period that the implant process was being done. I always had a temporary in there that I was able to eat; in fact, the temporary, it felt so good I never even noticed that it was a temporary. And I was extremely pleased with the work that Dr. Argeros did on my implant. Before I had the implant done, Dr. Argeros went over the whole procedure, explained to me what was going to be done, what precautions I would have to take, which were really just being careful when I had the temporary in there. Now that I've had an implant for about, I think, five years, I must say that it feels just like any other tooth. It looks the same. I've haven't had any problems at all. Well, if anyone else was planning on getting an implant, I would highly recommend Dr. Argeros and his staff to do the work for that implant because with the results that I received, I'm extremely happy.
In addition to keeping your jaw healthy and preserving your bone structure, implants will:
- Give you a natural-looking smile when combined with a dental restoration. Your dentist can attach the restoration of your choice to dental implants: dental crowns, a dental bridge, or dentures.
- Provide a stable foundation for your replacement teeth. Your new teeth won’t slip when attached to implants.
- Give you a strong bite that feels and functions like your own, so you can eat whatever you’d like.
- Last a lifetime with proper care. And caring for implants is as simple as following your usual brushing and flossing routine.

Get Your Treatment From an Implant Expert
Many dentists offer only the most basic dental implant procedures. Some dentists don’t even place implants; they just restore them. But Dr. John Argeros, a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, has been placing and restoring implants since the early 1980s. He received his board certification from the American Board of Oral Implantology / Implant Dentistry in 2007. He is one of only a few hundred dentists in the world to receive a Fellowship in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Dr. Argeros and our other dentists use the latest dental technology, like our i-CAT cone beam 3-D imaging system, to ensure your dental implant procedure goes smoothly.
We’ll Help You Choose the Right Dental Implant Procedure
Thanks to the expertise of Dr. Argeros and our other dentists, you can choose from numerous implant procedures:Restoring missing teeth Read Transcript
Dental implants have become the go-to procedure for people with missing teeth because they allow a permanent replacement of a missing tooth without damaging adjacent teeth. They also can support a full complement of teeth, both upper and lower, without having the patient going into a traditional denture that flops around.
Dental implants hold teeth in place, allow patients to regain their sense of self, being able to chew, being able to speak, being able to kiss a loved one. So if you're missing one tooth, or having problems with many teeth, or, like many folks, having problems with dentures that just move around or are uncomfortable, or you're using a lot of adhesive to keep them in, please come and see us. We can offer you an implant solution that will change your life.
- To replace a single tooth or several missing teeth, you can get a dental crown, dental bridge, or partial dentures attached to dental implants.
- You may be able to use mini dental implants if you need to replace teeth in a part of your mouth where space is tight, or if your jaw isn’t strong enough to support full-size implants.
- To replace lots of missing teeth, you can have a full arch of replacement teeth attached to just four implants in a procedure called All-on-X.
You may even be able to get your teeth implants and new teeth all in a single appointment with innovative All-on-X procedures. Special software and 3-D imaging make it possible!
