When you look at your smile, you don’t only see teeth. There is a supporting cast. That beautiful smile in the mirror needs healthy teeth as well as strong gums and jawbone to hold your teeth in place. If you lose a tooth because of decay, gum disease or tooth extraction, then bone tissue begins to recede. A tooth replacement—whether you choose dental implants in Worcester, a partial or a denture—needs a certain amount of jawbone for support. That’s why bone graft surgery may be necessary. Read on to learn more about this procedure.

If you have lost any teeth—whether one, several or even an entire arch—then replacement is very important. After all, you want your smile to look appealing and you need good oral health. Today’s ideal choice for tooth replacement is a dental implant. Although dental implants do cost a bit more upfront, their longevity and ease of maintenance could make the added expense worthwhile. The only way to know for sure is to schedule a visit with a periodontist in Worcester.

I just love having a conversation that I can’t understand—said no one ever! Take a conversation about dental implants, for instance. Your periodontist will likely use some words that you’re not familiar with, because—well—you’re not a periodontist. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t learn those words. Read on for a cheat sheet that will help you understand and may even make you feel less apprehensive about the procedure.

We applaud your decision to have dental implants to replace your missing teeth. There are other options available, such as dentures, partials or a crown and bridge. However, none of these quite matches up to implants that replace both the crown and root of missing teeth. Many dentists now offer dental implants. But for results that look good, feel good and last a long time, you are wise to choose a periodontist to perform your dental implant procedure. The doctors at Handsman & Haddad place dental implants in Worcester with planning and precision, so your new smile will give you years of pleasure.

As periodontists, Dr. David Handsman and Dr. Todd Jenny and their staff see patients who have a wide range of dental and oral health concerns. Some require single treatments to regain functionality and appearance, while others require a collection of treatments. For those patients, we offer full-mouth reconstruction. As the name suggests, full mouth reconstruction involves rebuilding or replacing most of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. The process combines aesthetic and restorative procedures to improve the health, function and appearance of your smile. Worcester implant dentists Drs. Handsman and Jenny frequently include implant-supported dentures in a plan for full mouth reconstruction. These not only enhance the beauty of your smile, but also improve speech and chewing capabilities. Read on to learn more.
