Dental Implants in Newton
Tooth loss or extraction can do more than impact the aesthetics of your smile. If left untreated, lack of natural teeth can cause extensive bite misalignment, bone deterioration, and may even spur on additional tooth loss. With help from Newton implant dentist Dr. Ted Filandrianos
, patients can receive comprehensive tooth replacement with dental implants and implant-supported restorations.
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants consist of three unique components: the implant post, which is surgically placed into the dentition, the prosthetic tooth restoration which sits above the gum line, and the abutment, which connect the two components.
In contrast to traditional restorations, dental implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss and extraction. For many patients, this restorative treatment option is used to replace teeth that have been severely damaged by periodontal disease
or tooth infection. Implants can also be used to support multiple tooth restorations, such as bridges and overdentures, offering stability unparalleled by conventional tooth replacement methods.

When placing dental implants, patients first complete a rigorous examination to ensure that dental implants are the best restorative solution for them. During this in-depth examination, our implant specialists evaluate the condition of each component of your smile, including the jaw bone, neighboring teeth, and gums. Our Newton dental specialists take a collaborative approach to implant planning to determine the number of implants needed support your restoration, as well as the most strategic placement of implants.
In certain cases, preliminary treatments such as extraction, bone grafting, or sinus augmentation may be necessary in order to ensure long-term success. To provide patients with consistent care throughout each phase of the implant procedure, these specialized surgical treatments can be integrated as part of your implant treatment plan at Dr. Ted Filandrianos and Associates.
Once the bone has been properly prepared, your implant is placed by our Newton implant dentists. During a 3D guided surgical procedure, advanced technology is used to precisely embed the implant into the jaw bone. In certain cases, patients with sufficient bone density can also receive the abutment and final restoration during the placement procedure. Known as teeth-in-a-day, this innovative technique allows patients to receive high quality restorations that are manufactured in office with CEREC in-office milling technology.
