Dental Implants – Billerica, MA
The Most Seamless Path
for Tooth Replacement
Out of the multiple tooth replacement options out there, there is no solution quite as effective or revolutionary as dental implants for Billerica dental patients. Through a combination of titanium and porcelain materials, you can replace your tooth’s entire structure, which includes the root and the crown. Once your implant has fully healed, you’ll come back to see Dr. Niraja Patel to have your custom-made, implant-retained crown, bridge or denture placed! To get started on your implant treatment, schedule an appointment with our dental office by giving us a call.

Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants consist of three parts: the implant (which acts as the root), the abutment (which connects the restoration to the implant), and the restoration. The implant itself is made from titanium, which naturally bonds with bone tissue and keeps the implant properly anchored. Thanks to this integration, chewing your favorite foods feels natural because the jaw bone is being continuously stimulated. Furthermore, replacing the root also restores blood flow to the cheeks, preventing them from prematurely sagging and hollowing out. This is a common side effect of tooth loss that doesn’t get properly addressed via traditional tooth replacement methods.
Indications for Dental Implants
Dental implants can replace either one tooth or an entire arch of teeth at a time, making them ideal for patients with many different types of tooth loss. To learn which solution may work best for you, consider them below!
Missing One Tooth
Replacing a single tooth is as simple as placing one titanium post, an all-porcelain crown, and an abutment to connect the components together. We use porcelain for all of our implant-retained restorations because of its incredibly similar characteristics to natural tooth enamel.
Missing Multiple Teeth
An implant-retained bridge does not require the removal of any existing tooth structure to place, which is one of the most notable differences between this version and the traditional bridge. Instead of removing existing teeth to make room for and anchor the bridge, an implant holds a crown on either side.
Missing All Teeth
Dental implants can easily be paired with either full or partial dentures. As a result, your denture has a far more stable foundation to rely on, making it easier to chew, speak, and use your restoration without the use of denture adhesives. By placing four to six implants throughout the jaw, you can easily hold a complete bottom or top denture in place.
Partnered With Billerica’s Best Specialists
During the implantation phase of your treatment, you’ll visit one of Billerica’s trusted oral surgeons in our dental office. Not only will they walk you through the steps of your treatment, but they’ll partner with us to have the treatment planned in the most comprehensive way possible. The better the planning, the more successful and predictable your overall treatment will be. After you’ve fully healed, you’ll come back to our dental office and have your custom restoration fitted.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Determining the cost of dental implants is not a process that is so cut and dry. While most patients are candidates for dental implants, others may require additional preparatory treatments before they can safely and effectively undergo treatment. This may include bone grafts, sinus lifts and/or periodontal therapy, which all increase the overall cost. Furthermore, the number of implants needed to replace teeth as well as the type of restoration used will influence total cost.
However, even if the cost of dental implants seems high now, it should be noted that they are considered to be a long-term investment. With a lifespan ranging much longer than both dentures and bridges, less maintenance, and more restorative benefits, their positives far outweigh the initial investment.
