Restore Your Complete Smile With Life-like Replacements

Your teeth work best as a full set. They support each other, protect each other, and even maintain the youthful contours of your face. Even a single missing tooth can make eating complicated and uncomfortable. For each tooth that goes missing, the added strain on your other teeth puts them at greater risk for wear and fractures and could lead to more tooth loss.

If you need a permanent solution to tooth loss, dental implants could be the answer you’re looking for. This versatile approach can replace missing teeth with strong, functional restorations that look and feel like healthy, natural teeth. At Harris Dental, we proudly provide affordable dental implants in Barnstable, Centerville, Dennis, and Hyannis, MA. Whether you’re missing a tooth or looking for a way to rebuild your smile completely, dental implants can help you love your smile for life!

What Are Dental Implants?

wave icon

Dental implants replace missing teeth using three parts. First, an implant post replaces the root of the tooth. Second, a restoration like a crown or bridge replaces the tooth’s visible part with durable materials that look like natural enamel. Third, an abutment connects the post to the restoration for a stable final result. When firmly integrated into the jawbone, these components provide exceptional versatility for replacing multiple missing teeth.

Our experienced dentists expertly guide you through this intricate process, employing cutting-edge surgical technology to precisely install full mouth dental implants. This precision allows us to tailor each dental implant procedure meticulously, addressing your dental needs and smile aspirations. Our commitment to perfection ensures that your envisioned smile is not just a dream but a tangible reality!

Why Are Dental Implants the Ideal Solution to Tooth Loss?

Versatile Solutions for Any Tooth Replacement Needs

Single Implants

If you’re missing a single tooth or individual teeth in separate areas of the mouth, single dental implants are as close to rebuilding a healthy natural tooth. By replacing individual teeth with single dental implants, we can protect the rest of your teeth from excessive strain that can lead to more damage.  Single dental implants don’t rely on the surrounding teeth for support, so they prevent unnecessary damage from working on otherwise healthy neighboring teeth. You’ll be able to brush, floss, and care for your dental implant like a normal tooth.

Dental Bridges

If you’re missing several teeth in one area, a dental bridge can be anchored to as few as two implant posts. Instead of needing an individual post for each missing tooth, this approach minimizes the need for extra surgical sites while providing the same strength and function as individual implants. An implant-supported dental bridge can rebuild a healthy and balanced bite, restoring normal function to your teeth and allowing you to eat a full variety of foods comfortably.

Implant-Supported Dentures

If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures can give you the improved stability of full mouth dental implants with the versatility of a removable prosthesis. With a few strategically placed implant posts, your implant-supported dentures will be securely placed without shifting, slipping, or rubbing. Because they don’t rely on suction to stay in place, implant-supported dentures last much longer than traditional dentures without needing replacement.

Full Mouth Dental Implants

If you’re missing all your teeth or facing the possibility of total tooth loss, full mouth dental implants are the ideal solution to rebuild your complete smile permanently.

With just a few implant posts, we can completely rebuild your smile with the same strength, stability, and durability as a full set of healthy natural teeth. You’ll never have to leave your teeth in a glass overnight again.

Your Path to Renewed Dental Health

Your path to a renewed set of strong, functional teeth starts with a consultation. We want to understand why you’re looking for tooth replacement options and what you hope dental implants can do for you. We’ll discuss your dental concerns, medical history, and smile goals. We’ll use our state-of-the-art digital diagnostic suite to build a high-fidelity replica of your bone structure to determine if you have the proper support for ideal outcomes with dental implants. With this information, we’ll create a complete treatment plan tailored to your dental needs, including skin tone, facial structure, and gum and lip lines.

On the day of your surgery, we’ll create small incisions in your gums and insert 4-6 dental implants into your jawbone at a 45-degree angle to ensure optimal precision. Once the dental implants are placed, we’ll attach an abutment connector to each post and affix your temporary restoration to the abutment. This temporary restoration will allow you to enjoy all your new smile benefits while your mouth heals.

Over the next 4-6 months, your jawbone will heal through osseointegration, where your implants fuse with your jawbone to create a sturdy foundation for your permanent smile. Once healed, we can place your final restorations. This final restoration is custom-crafted to match your facial aesthetics; your implant restorations will be made from the most robust, most durable materials to last for years. Your implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper at-home care and routine checkups!
