Dental Implants – Newton, MA
A Lifelong Solution for Missing Teeth
Traditionally, if a patient needed to replace their missing teeth, their only options consisted of restorations that just sat on top of their gum line. While these can look fantastic, they tend to lack the stability of real dental structure due to the lack of a root, leading to a weakened bite and discomfort within the mouth. Dental implants, on the other hand, are the next best thing to nature because the new teeth are stabilized using titanium tooth roots placed directly into the jawbone. Using this state-of-the-art treatment, Dr. Anjomi can permanently renew someone’s smile and oral health for a lifetime to come, and to start getting it, all you have to do is call us today.

Benefits of Dental Implants
Because dental implants bring back an entire tooth from root to crown, they’re able to offer benefits you just can’t get with more traditional treatments:
- No matter what you are eating, dental implants are guaranteed to stay in place.
- Implants don’t require any of the remaining natural teeth to be altered or reshaped to accommodate them.
- Every implant root is topped with a custom-made restoration that is made out of natural-looking porcelain and acrylic.
- Dental implants actually help preserve the jawbone, stimulating the growth of new tissue once in place. This keeps the bone strong so it can support the remaining teeth as well as the facial muscles (which can prevent the formation of wrinkles).
- All it takes is regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups to keep implants looking and feeling like new.
- The average lifespan of an implant is over 30 years, dramatically longer than removable bridges and dentures (which usually have to be replaced every five to seven years).
Indications for Dental Implants
Regardless of how many teeth you are missing, Dr. Anjomi can pair your implant roots with many types of restorations to fill in the gaps and completely renew your smile:
Missing Single Tooth
A dental crown connected to the jawbone using an implant can be positioned between two healthy teeth to close a lone gap. The crown itself will be made of porcelain and color-matched to the surrounding teeth to create a seamless and attractive appearance.
Missing Multiple Teeth
Partial dentures and bridges can help restore multiple teeth at the same time, and these prosthetics can be anchored within the mouth using a small number of implant roots so they never slip out of place while someone is eating or speaking.
Missing All Teeth
Four to six strategically placed implants can provide a strong foundation for a full denture that doesn’t shift around like a regular one. Implant dentures are smaller and leave more room in the mouth compared to removable prosthetics, creating a more comfortable fit, but they also allow for a stronger bite. This enables a patient to enjoy many foods typically considered “off limits” to denture wearers (like tough meats and fibrous vegetables).
The dental implant procedure is typically broken up into two main phases: the surgical placement of the new roots, and their eventual restoration when they are topped with a patient’s crown, bridge, or denture. Typically, a dentist would force their patient to visit multiple specialists to have both phases completed, but with Dr. Anjomi, you’ll be able to get everything you need in the comfort of our Newton office. This one-stop approach helps save time, money, and stress so you can rebuild your smile in the most efficient way possible.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Because dental implants can be customized based on each patient’s unique needs, the cost of the treatment is always different from person to person. The number of implant roots needed, the type of restoration used, and many other factors can affect the final price. We can let you know exactly what you’ll be expected to pay after we see you for a consultation. While implants tend to be more expensive upfront compared to removable bridges and dentures, their extreme longevity often helps patients save money over time because they spend thousands less on periodic maintenance.
