Book An Appointment
A smile is one of the most important aspects of a person’s appearance and can affect self-confidence and relationships. Unfortunately, missing teeth or other dental problems can make people self-conscious about their smiles. However, there is a solution that can help restore your smile and improve your overall dental health: implant dentistry. Church Street Dental in Chicopee, MA, offers top-quality implant dentistry services to help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.
What is Implant Dentistry?
Implant dentistry is a dental procedure that involves the replacement of missing teeth with artificial teeth that function and look like natural teeth. The procedure involves surgically placing a titanium post in the jawbone, which is the foundation for the artificial tooth. The artificial tooth is then attached to the post, resulting in a natural-looking and fully functional replacement tooth.
Benefits of Implant Dentistry
There are numerous benefits to implant dentistry. First and foremost, it can significantly improve the look of your smile. Missing or damaged teeth can be embarrassing and make people feel self-conscious. Implant dentistry provides a permanent solution that looks and functions like natural teeth, restoring confidence in your smile.
Implant dentistry can also improve your overall dental health. Missing teeth can cause the surrounding teeth to shift, leading to problems with the bite and chewing. Additionally, missing teeth can cause the jawbone to deteriorate, which can lead to further dental problems down the road. Implant dentistry helps preserve the jawbone and prevent further dental problems.
Finally, implant dentistry is a long-term solution. Unlike other tooth replacement options, such as dentures or bridges, implants are permanent and require no special care beyond regular brushing and flossing.
How Implant Dentistry Works at Church Street Dental
Church Street Dental is committed to providing top-quality implant dentistry services to our patients. We start with a consultation to evaluate your dental health and determine if implant dentistry is right for you.
If implant dentistry is the best solution for your dental needs, we will begin the procedure by placing a titanium post in the jawbone. This post will serve as the foundation for the artificial tooth. After placing the post, we will wait several months to allow the post to fuse with the jawbone. Once the post is fully integrated, we will attach the artificial tooth to the post, resulting in a natural-looking and fully functional replacement tooth.

Which Type of Dental Implants Are Best for Me?
Dental implants are an excellent option for replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile. They offer a long-lasting, comfortable, functional solution, and they can help prevent further dental problems. However, choosing the right type of dental implant can be overwhelming. In this article, we’ll discuss the different types of dental implants available and help you determine which one is best for you.
- Endosteal Implants
Endosteal implants are the most common type of dental implant. They are made of titanium and are placed directly into the jawbone. Endosteal implants are ideal for patients with a healthy jawbone and seeking a permanent tooth replacement solution. They are also suitable for patients who have lost multiple teeth and want to avoid a bridge or denture.
- Subperiosteal Implants
Subperiosteal implants are placed on top of the jawbone beneath the gums. They are suitable for patients who have a shallow jawbone or cannot undergo bone grafting. Subperiosteal implants are not as commonly used as endosteal implants, but they are still an excellent option for many patients.
- All-on-4 Implants
All-on-4 implants are a specific type of implant that is designed to replace an entire arch of teeth. They use four implants to anchor complete upper or lower teeth. All-on-4 implants are ideal for patients who have lost or most of their teeth and want a permanent, full-arch tooth replacement solution.
- Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are smaller in size than traditional implants and are used in cases where there is not enough space for a regular-sized implant. They are also ideal for patients who are unable to undergo bone grafting. Mini dental implants are typically used to support dentures or as a temporary tooth replacement solution.
