Dental Implants An Overview

American Society of Implant and Reconstructive Dentistry logoDental implants are the ideal treatment option for people who want a permanent, natural looking solution for missing or broken teeth. Although most dentists offer multiple treatment options for replacing teeth that are no longer functional, none can replicate the quality, effectiveness, and durability of natural teeth like dental implants.

Our dentists, Dr. Keith Levesque and Dr. Tara Levesque-Vogel are members of the American Society of Implant & Reconstructive Dentistry (ASIRD). ASIRD is committed to improving the quality of care for dental implant patients by elevating the standards of surgical and restorative dental education and practice. Not every dentist routinely restores and maintains dental implants and not all dentists who offer implants are surgeons. By using an ASIRD team, rest assured that your dentist routinely restores and maintains dental implants, and only a trained surgeon will place your implant.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition. In addition, tooth loss can lead to bone loss – which can alter the shape of your face and make you appear much older than you actually are. Dental implants are a proven solution for missing teeth and ill-fitting dentures.

  • 98% success rate – highest of any dental procedure!
  • Helps to avoid bone loss and gum recession associated with tooth loss.
  • Restores proper chewing, leading to a better diet and improved health.
  • Avoids grinding down healthy teeth for conventional bridgework.
  • Improves speech.
  • Increases comfort.
  • Helps promote long-term facial integrity.

The Cost of Doing “Nothing”

Avoiding dental implants because of treatment cost can mean more expensive treatment and decreased quality of life. The longer you put off dental implant treatment, the more likely you are to need additional procedures that can increase total cost, such as:

  • Bone grafting
  • Sinus surgery
  • Additional dental implants
  • Periodontal (gum) treatment

And it’s not just the financial cost of all these treatments. Going without your teeth impacts the way your smile looks, your ability to speak and your overall self-confidence. The impacts of missing teeth can be far reaching, affecting your overall health, social interactions and even ability to get a job.

Dental Implants What to Expect

affordable dental implants in Nashua New Hampshire
At the Levesque Dentistry, Nashua dentists Dr. Vogel and Dr. Levesque utilize advanced technology not found in most dental practices to plan your tooth replacement solution. There are a number of affordable dental implant solutions depending on your specific needs.

Missing one or two teeth?

Dental implants can be used to replace one or two teeth. Usually, the implant is placed and restored with a porcelain dental crown or bridge. They can be used to replace teeth that are congenitally missing or teeth that have been lost due to accidents, tooth decay, gum disease or other reasons.

The tooth implant will help to maintain the bone structure and prevent neighboring teeth from moving or shifting, which can cause additional problems and/or tooth loss.

Missing several teeth?

If you are missing several teeth in a row, dental implants can be placed to support a hybrid-bridge or partial denture.

Missing all of your teeth?
