Expertise in all Aspects of Dental Implants
Many of our patients considering Worcester Dental Implants to provide a tooth replacement option and are also concerned with the cost of treatment. Like many good investments, dental implants may have a higher initial price tag, but for a few significant reasons. Dental implants permanently replace all facets of natural teeth, including the function, health, and aesthetics they provide a smile. When compared to all other options, their longevity, beauty, and the confidence boost of a fully restored smile far outweigh that of the dental implant cost itself. Our multidisciplinary team has the expertise to both place and restore dental implants at our location. Led by our board-certified periodontist, our experience and advanced dental technology together removes nearly all room for error, providing you with treatment that is predictable, highly accurate, and beneficial to your oral health and smile long-term!
Why Should I Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are permanently fixed in your jaw bone, mimicking the movement and pressure exerted from chewing that is necessary for keeping the jaw bone healthy and strong. They are also restored with custom dental crowns. We design them to the most ideal shape, size, and color, making them virtually unrecognizable as artificial restorations when compared to your existing natural teeth! But one of the most important benefits of dental implants is their permanence. With proper care, you will never need to worry about replacing them or feeling restricted with what you can and cannot eat. Dental implants can replace one or more teeth, or an entire arch of teeth by stabilizing dentures or a full-arch prosthesis.

How much do dental implants cost?
Please call to make an appointment to determine your treatment plan because there are several factors that influence the cost of a dental implant, including:
- The quality, amount, and location of bone.
- The number of teeth that need to be replaced and the type of artificial teeth that will be used.
- The type of implant(s) that will be appropriate.
- The number of implants needed to support these teeth.
What are dental implants?
Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.
A connector, known as an abutment, is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth.
Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 40 years. They are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth, and even better, they allow these new teeth to feel, look and function naturally.
Can I replace all my teeth with dental implants?
Yes, when all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, there are three option:
- Bridges on implants, which is a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants.
- All-on-4 or All-on-5, hybrid, or fixed-detachable dentures, which is a bridge-type prosthesis that attaches to multiple implants.
- Removable implant denture, which is a denture that snaps down onto the implants and can be removed for daily cleansing. Typically, 2 or 3 implants to each arch are needed.
How many implants are needed for the whole mouth?
The number of implants that are needed to replace all teeth won’t be the same for everyone, but usually five dental implants in the upper jaw, and four to five implants in the lower jaw.
