At Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology, we offer comprehensive dental implant services to help you achieve the results you need. If you are living without teeth, dental implant can help you look great, function better, and maintain a healthy smile for the long term. Below you will learn more about how each type of dental implants we offer can help you regain the smile you need to live your life.
Traditional Single Implants
Single dental implant are fairly simple — we surgically place a prosthetic tooth root (typically made of titanium) into the gum where the natural tooth used to be. During the healing process, the dental implant fuses to the jawbone to create a strong, permanent foundation for your replacement tooth. After you are completely healed, we will load your replacement tooth, designed and crafted to fit your aesthetic specifications. This combo will help you look your best and function to your fullest ability.
All-on-X® Dental Implants
All-on-X® dental implants, also known as Same Day Teeth®, are a great dental option for patients who are missing (or know they are going to lose) an entire arch of teeth. We can even perform this dental procedure to replace a full mouth of teeth! The concept is straightforward — we use four single dental implant to support a full arch of replacement teeth. The concept is straightforward – we use four or six single Dental Implants to support a full arch of replacement teeth. Our patients have great success with this dental procedure.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are a smaller, easier-to-place version of an implant. Because of their smaller size, the procedure to place them is not quite as invasive as that of traditional dental implants. However, they do not offer the same level of security and support.
Implant-Retained and -Supported Dentures
Implant-retained dentures use dental implants, a denture, and ball attachments to restore the appearance and function of your mouth. We also offer implant-supported dentures, which work similarly, except that they use a bar attachment mechanism. If you are missing an entire arch of teeth, we can craft a denture that will fit your mouth and help you function normally.
Immediate Implant Placement After An Extraction
Want to get everything done in one day? We offer a service that will allow us to remove your natural teeth and place the dental implants all in one procedure. This will save you the time and embarrassment of having two separate procedures. Ask Dr. John Argeros of Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology Peabody, MA dental office if this option is right for you.
Dental implants do require a certain amount of available jawbone material to be placed properly. If you have suffered from severe periodontal disease or have gone very long without teeth, this may be a problem for you, as your bone deteriorates in these circumstances. If you do have this problem, we can still help you get the implants you need by first implementing a bone grafting procedure. This dental procedure will help build up the bone in a particular area to allow for an implant to be placed. Talk to Dr. John Argeros of Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology Peabody, MA dental practice to determine if this option is right for you.
Dr. John Argeros holds a Mastership at International Congress of Oral Implantology, he is also a member of American Academy of Implant Dentistry and Academy of Osseointegration, his education and the organizations he is involved with made him a professional in dentistry and dental implants.
