If you are embarrassed about a missing single tooth, multiple missing teeth or if you have dentures and feel uncomfortable when chewing or avoid certain foods in case your dentures slip or pop out, then why not consider Dental Implants.

Dental Implants are basically artificial roots placed into your mouth that support fixed or removable tooth replacements. They are individually designed to look and feel like your natural teeth. In addition, Dental Implants help stop bone loss by replacing the lost roots which helps save the rest of your teeth too!

“Dr. Malament’s work is of the highest standard. He and his team have created numerous crowns for me over the years with attention to both the esthetics and overall dental health.”

The many benefits of Dental Implants

Restored Function

Dental implants give excellent stability to your replacement teeth, allowing you to eat a wider range of foods, enunciate with greater clarity, and achieve a normal-looking smile. You can enjoy the foods you like, including whole fruits, steaks, and even chewing gum, without worrying that your dental restoration will shift.

Designed to Last
For the right candidates, dental implants are widely regarded as the best solution for missing teeth. Dental implants themselves are crafted from biocompatible titanium and when properly cared for, they can last a lifetime. Meanwhile, your implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture will be crafted from high-grade porcelain that is durable, natural-looking, and stain-resistant.
Improved Oral Health
Our teeth are constantly stimulating the bone tissue in the jaw. When you have a missing tooth, the jaw will begin to atrophy. Implants replace the tooth roots and are the only form of dental restoration that can stop this bone recession. Among many other benefits, this effect can help to protect your remaining natural teeth and contribute to good oral health in general.
Enhanced Quality of Life
Few things in life are more fundamentally enjoyable than savory meals, long talks with friends, and sharing smiles with those you love. Dental implants make it possible to experience these simple joys to the absolute fullest. Our natural-looking dental implant-supported dentures and other restorations give patients the confidence to show off their smiles with pride, boosting self-esteem and improving your quality of life.
State-of-the-Art Implant Treatment

At Boston Prosthodontics Dental Group, we incorporate advanced technology into all treatments. Our sophisticated dentistry techniques not only shorten your overall treatment time, but also minimize the risk of complications and the amount of pain associated with the procedure.

Cone beam 3D imaging allows dentists to see clear, detailed, images of your teeth and jaw. This technology helps us to plan dental implant procedures with exceptional accuracy and is an essential diagnostic tool we use to determine candidacy and identify the need for preparatory procedures.

In-House Lab
We have an in-house laboratory that provides the highest quality custom replacement teeth. Our team of technicians create world-class restorations that give our patients something to smile about again and again.

Why would I need Dental Implant treatment?

  • I Have A Missing Tooth

    If you have lost a single tooth, an implant-supported crown is a great alternative to traditional dental bridge treatment.

  • I Have Missing Teeth

    For patients who have lost multiple teeth, an implant-supported bridge or a partial denture anchored to implants can rebuild your smile.
  • I Have Complete Tooth Loss

    Implant-supported dentures offer a secure and aesthetically pleasing option for patients who are missing all of their teeth in either or both jaws.

  • I Have Decayed or Damaged Teeth

    While our doctors always attempt to save your natural teeth, removing and replacing severely damaged or decayed teeth is sometimes the best restorative option.

The Dental Implant process

Dental implant surgery is performed in our world-class facilities by doctors who have undergone advanced training. Your dental implant timeline will depend on several factors, including the need for preparatory procedures and the number of teeth you need to replace.
1 – Consultation
During your consultation, the doctor will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and jawbone using the latest x-ray technology. This will allow us to determine if any prerequisite procedures such as tooth extractions are needed, and to create a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. Your doctor will explain the procedure to you in detail and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
2 – Preparatory Procedures
For patients who require preparatory procedures, a follow-up dental appointment will be scheduled. The doctor will perform any necessary tooth extractions and bone grafting procedures. Healing from tooth extractions generally takes two to three weeks. In cases where bone grafting is needed, it will require an additional three to six months of recovery.
3 – Dental Implant Placement
During your first placement surgery, the doctor will begin by administering anesthesia and make incisions in the gum tissue. The dentist then places the titanium implants into the bone tissue. The duration of the procedure will depend on how many implants are being placed, but it generally takes two to four hours.
4 – Osseointegration
While you recover from surgery, the implant posts will fuse with your jawbone in a process known as osseointegration. Osseointegration is the most crucial step in the implant process and typically takes about four to six months. The doctor will monitor your progress through a series of follow-up appointments to ensure there are no complications.
5 – Abutment Placement
Once the dental implants have completely fused to the bone tissue, the doctor will attach titanium abutments that connect the restorations to the implants. While abutment placement is a minor dental procedure, patients typically need about two to three weeks for gum tissue to heal before receiving permanent restorations.
6 – Restoration Placement

After the abutments have been placed, the prosthodontist will take digital impressions of your smile that the dental lab will use to fabricate your custom restoration. Once your implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture is complete, the dentist secures it in place and checks the fit. After any necessary adjustments are made, the treatment is complete.

Maintaining your Dental Implants after treatment

  • Days One through Three:

    Be gentle around the treatment area in the days following implant placement. You should refrain from strenuous exercise and avoid eating hard foods that could disturb the treatment area. Change the bandaging or gauze frequently, and apply ice packs as needed to mitigate swelling. Most patients manage pain by using a low dosage of over-the-counter pain medications.

  • Weeks One and Two:
    During this time, the swelling will begin to subside. You should be eating soft foods to ensure your comfort. We recommend you regularly rinse your mouth with salt water to promote healing. We will schedule a post-operative appointment at our Boston, MA, office to monitor your recovery.
  • Months One through Six:
    In the months following implant surgery, osseointegration takes place. During this time, the implants will fuse to your jaw. It is essential to maintain good oral hygiene during this time to promote proper healing.
  • Ongoing Care:

    After you have fully healed from implant surgery, your abutments will be attached during a minor surgical procedure. In about two weeks, after your gums have healed, you can receive your permanent restoration. You should care for your implants and replacement teeth the same way you care for your natural teeth: brush twice daily and floss once a day. Oral care at home should be supplemented with regularly scheduled dental visits.
