Implant Surgery in Salem, MA

Implant Surgery in Salem, MA

At Burba Dental Partners, we surgically place a titanium post called an implant into the jawbone to serve as an artificial tooth root. The bone and titanium will fuse through osseointegration, creating a strong anchor for the replacement tooth. Once the bone has healed around the implant, the Dentist in Salem, MA will place a custom restoration on the abutment.  

Dental implants are an excellent option for patients who want to replace one or more teeth without relying on a traditional tooth-replacement option like dentures. Tooth loss can take a toll on your self-confidence and quality of life, but implant dentistry allows you to renew your smile with fixed restorations designed to look like your natural teeth.

The Advantages of Dental Implants 

  • Dental implants look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.
  • You can eat all your favorite foods again! No more struggling to eat certain foods like steak or corn on the cob.
  • Your speech won’t change at all with dental implants. Most people won’t even be able to tell that you’re missing teeth.
  • They can help prevent further damage to your smile by providing a strong and stable foundation to keep the rest of your teeth and jawbone healthy.
  • They can improve your self-confidence by restoring your smile and boosting your self-esteem.

The Implant Surgery Process 

Before the surgery, you will be given anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. The level of anesthesia may vary depending on your preference and the complexity of the surgery. After this, our dentist will make a small incision in the gum tissue at the site of the missing tooth or teeth. He will then carefully drill into the jawbone and place the dental implant into the prepared socket. The implant is then covered with gum tissue or a healing cap. Over the next several months, the bone will undergo osseointegration and fuse with the dental implants, making them securely anchored. 

Once osseointegration is complete, a minor surgical procedure is performed to attach abutments to the implants. The abutments serve as connectors between the implants and the dental restorations. After the abutments are in place, impressions or digital scans of your mouth will be taken. These records are used to create custom-made dental prostheses that fit accurately and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. Once the dental prostheses are fabricated, they are securely attached to the abutments. Our dentist will then ensure a proper fit, check the bite alignment, and make any necessary adjustments to ensure optimal functionality and aesthetics. 

After the implant surgery and restoration, you will have follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process and assess the success of the treatment. Our dentist will provide instructions on post-operative care, including oral hygiene practices and any dietary restrictions.
