What are Dental Implants?

A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food). Both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw. The difference is that the implant is made of titanium — the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints. When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. To replace the tooth, the surgeon first replaces the root with a small dental implant.

Time is allowed for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth.  A support post (abutment) is then placed on the implant and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the abutment. In many cases, a temporary replacement tooth can be attached to the implant immediately after it is placed. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.

A smiling elderly man

“Don’t be afraid to Smile.”

For years I’d felt like a part of my body was missing — because my teeth were. My dentist told me that dental implants would make me feel and look a lot better. OK, I said. Now, I’m thrilled. I can smile, eat anything, and enjoy a good laugh with my friends.

Surgical Advances in Dental Implants

Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Moavenian, Dr. Braasch, Dr. Ahson, Dr. Kuepper, Dr. Schonfield, Dr. Reich and Dr. Williams are able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implant can be placed at the same time as the tooth extraction — further minimizing your number of surgical procedures.

Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. Drs. Moavenian, Braasch, Ahson, Kuepper, Schonfield, Reich or Williams performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary. The restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

Dr. Moavenian and his staff are phenomenal! I had an extraction and an implant and they were super informative with the whole process and procedure! I had the extraction and implant done at the Salem office but the follow up at the Nashua location and was highly satisfied with both offices! They did a great job with making me feel comfortable and informed! Shoutout to Courtney at the Nashua location who was super patient and efficient!

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

I have had three extractions and implants over the course of three years and have never been anything but delighted with the staff's care or Dr. Moavenian's expertise in the short, immediate term (even in emergency) and the long term monitoring and examination of my progress. Immediate assistance was always available for pain management, possible infection (there were none), instruction for home care, and the very important implant work on three different sights. I recommend Dr. Moavenian himself, as well as the practice and his entire staff (since I was cared for by different, skillful and knowledgeable assistants each time) as an excellent, five-star (or more) surgeon and enterprise. Without question, a great resource for my health and condition.

I had a very positive experience after anticipating the worse. I had a wisdom tooth and molar extracted and an implant all done at the same appointment with minimal recouperation time.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

I recently went through the surgical process to have an implant done for a front tooth that I lost over 40 years ago after taking a hard fall on the ice as a child. I was just tired of the bridged tooth I had and having issues with it now and then. I was not sure I would be a candidate for an implant with the tooth loss being so long ago but Dr. Braasch was able to do the procedure flawlessly. I was so impressed with him and his staff from the first time we met all the way to my care release. I hope that I will not be in need of another implant or surgery but should I find myself in need this is where I will go again. A huge Thank You to Dr. Braasch and your entire staff.

Came in for tooth extraction and possible implant. Received a plan to improve my whole smile over time. Opted for 2 implants that will allow for crown/bridge work to start the process. Found all the staff informative and supportive throughout the process. Look forward to receiving the first step to a full smile.

Dr. Moavenian is the best — would not consider using any other doctor for my implant work.
