Here at Oxford Smiles in Marlborough, MA, your dentist, Dr. Jas Arora, offers services ranging from pediatric and cosmetic treatments, to the most state-of-the-art tooth replacement available today, dental implants. Would you like to know how these amazing artificial teeth could restore your smile? Read on!
Amazing tooth replacements
That’s what dental implants are. They replace teeth in their entirety—from root to crown. Dr. Arora begins this treatment by making sure that the implant site can accept a metal alloy abutment post as well as a beautiful porcelain crown to complete the entire tooth structure.
Dental implant procedures
Sometimes tooth loss happens, despite our best efforts to avoid so. Accidental injury, decay, and periodontal disease all ruin tooth structure and stability. If you have experienced tooth loss, Dr. Arora is the dentist to see in the Marlborough area.
She’ll examine your oral health, review your medical history, and determine if your jaw bone is strong enough to receive dental implants. Special i-CAT scans show the dentist details on your jaw, sinus, soft tissues, and other factors important to implant placement and success.
The in-office implant procedure is comfortable, requiring only a bit of local anesthetic to complete. Dr. Arora uses the Simplant placement system to optimize implant accuracy and comfort. The Osstell scanner shows her when an implant is sufficiently integrated to accept the substantial pressures of biting and chewing.
Living with your new smile
Single-tooth implants and implant-supported bridges and dentures need diligent brushing and flossing at home. You should also see Dr. Arora at Oxford Smiles every six months for a hygienic cleaning and examination.
Dental implant procedures are highly successful, recording a success rate of 96 to 97 percent according to reports by the New York Times. However, your oral hygiene habits are critical to keep these implants healthy.
