So many patients come to Advanced Dental Care and ask our Attleboro general dentists different ways to replace their missing teeth. Dr. Naiman always suggests dental implants. These titanium screws serve as a replacement for the tooth root and provide a good anchor for replacement teeth. Dental implants are a permanent and natural looking solution to missing teeth!

Many older patients come to Dr. Naiman and question whether they are a good candidate for dental implants. Anyone who is missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease, or tooth decay may be a candidate for dental implants. The determining factor is the amount of available bone, which can be evaluated by your general dentistry with dental x-rays. General health is more a determining factor for dental implant candidacy than age. If you’re healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you are most likely healthy enough for dental implants.
Dental implants have many advantages over dentures and dental bridges, including an improved appearance, preservation of natural teeth, and permanency. When you lose your entire tooth, crown and root, the jawbone beneath this area will shrink over time, causing your face to look older and sag. Dental implants with Dr. Naiman can stop this jawbone shrinkage, while traditional dentures and dental bridges cannot. With traditional dental bridges, the adjacent teeth are normally ground down to act as anchors for the dental bridge. Dental implants eliminate the need to modify healthy teeth, because the restoration is anchored on the implant, not on surrounding teeth. Lastly, dental implants are stable and comfortable.
