Dental Implants

Missing teeth can make simple tasks like eating or speaking much more difficult. Tooth loss can also lower your self-confidence.

Dental implants provide superior support to dental restorations, improving the health, function, and appearance of your smile.

Why are dental implants ideal for patients at Whiteman Dental Associates in Brookline, MA?

Three Great Benefits of Dental Implants

Implant-supported restorations offer many advantages over conventional restorations. Implant patients with Dr. Daniel M. Whiteman can experience:

Greater Stability

Dental implants act as a secure anchor for dental restorations, whether you are replacing a single tooth with a crown or a full arch of teeth with dentures. You can feel confident knowing that your restoration will stay in place no matter what you eat.

Improved Appearance

If you have experienced tooth loss, you may feel self-conscious about your appearance when you smile or speak. Your natural-looking restoration will fill any gaps, and your implants will hold your prosthetic firmly in place.

Good Jawbone Health

Dental implants are the only treatment for missing teeth that prevents jawbone atrophy. Jawbone loss occurs when the roots are no longer present to stimulate the jawbone. This can result in shifting of surrounding teeth and an aged appearance.

Additional Benefits

Dental implants offer a number of other benefits that make them the preferred treatment method. The advantages include:

  • Long-lasting: If you maintain good dental hygiene, your implants can last a lifetime.
  • No embarrassing slippage: Traditional dentures can slip out of place, making them a hassle to wear.
  • Improved ease when speaking and eating: The stability of dental implants allows you to smile, speak, and eat with confidence.

5 Stars

"I had an implant done at Dr. Whiteman’s practice. I must say I received excellent care. Dr. Whiteman is very friendly, puts you at ease and always makes sure I am comfortable and not in pain. Bonus: He also has a great sense of humor :) I was nervous before deciding to have the implant done, but everything went so smoothly that now I regret not doing it earlier. His whole staff is very friendly and helpful! Great team and excellent experience!!! Eva B.

What Are Dental Implants?

The field of dentistry has improved dramatically in the last few decades, and dental implants represent a significant milestone in recent dental innovations. These small titanium posts are implanted in the jawbone by a dentist or oral surgeon to serve as prosthetic tooth roots, providing the absolute best support for dentures, bridges, and crowns.

Your Options Depend on Your Unique Needs

Whiteman Dental Associates offers traditional and mini implants at our Brookline office serving Greater Boston, MA. These can be used to support a single crown, a dental bridge, or a full denture. The choice between traditional and mini implants depends on several factors, including your:

  • Jawbone density
  • Budget
  • Treatment timeline

Mini Dental Implants

Mini implants can often be placed and restored in a single day at our Brookline office, resulting in a quicker treatment timeline. They are also less expensive, making them ideal for patients on a budget. Finally, mini implants require less jawbone density, so a greater number of patients qualify for this option.

Traditional Dental Implants

Traditional implants are the most stable and reliable option for dental restorations. However, patients may require preparatory procedures to add volume to the jawbone, which can extend the treatment timeline and increase the total cost of treatment. For patients that want the gold standard in treatment, traditional implants are the best option.

All-on-4 Dental Implants

Our dentist also offers the All-on-4 method, which employs the use of four mini implants that are placed at an angle to replace an entire arch of missing teeth.

Teeth in a Day

With our advanced technology and skilled dentist, we can also provide the Teeth in a Day service. With this option, the implants and restoration are placed all in one day. Patients travel from throughout Boston and surrounding communities for this treatment option.
