Despite improvements in dental care, millions of Americans suffer tooth loss – mostly due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, or injury. For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. A dental implant is a titanium cylinder that is placed in the bone and once fully integrated replaces what was once the root of the tooth. A crown is attached to the implant to simulate an individual tooth. Implants or cosmetic surgery can replace an individual tooth or multiple teeth.
If you’re in pain, unable to eat the foods you like or you feel embarrassed about the look of your smile because of missing teeth or loose dentures, you need to learn about implant dentistry in Worcester.
Dental implant basics.
Implant dentistry provides permanent replacement teeth that look natural and feel totally secure. Dental implants are also used to retain dentures and partials – a highly effective solution for loose, slipping or painful crowns or dentures.
The dental implant is a metal post, which is surgically placed within the jawbone. After the implant is integrated into the bone, one or more artificial teeth, or a denture, crown or partial, is attached to the implant, for a beautiful, strong and secure final result.

Comprehensive dental implant care.
Because implant dentistry involves cosmetic dental surgery (sometimes dental bone graft surgery is also required) to place the implant, most dentists must send their patient to oral surgeons or other providers for this part of their treatment. Dr. Samborski has years of experience in all aspects of Worcester implant dentistry, including the surgical placement of the implant. He performs this stage of treatment in the privacy and comfort of his Worcester office, with precision and careful attention to your comfort and safety.
