Are you part of some startling dental statistics? Harvard Health reports that most Americans lose up to 12 teeth by age 50. To counter those numbers, your Grateful Dentists in Billerica, MA, Dr. Adam Danzig, Dr. Barry Danzig, and Dr. Lili Tayari, offer lifelike dental implants. Could they rebuild your gapped smile?
Dental implant specifics
A dental implant far exceeds patient expectations regarding appearance, functionality and bone-building capabilities. Composed of a titanium screw, serving as a replacement root, a metal post and porcelain crown, a single-tooth dental implant occupies the empty tooth socket.
Inserted into the jaw during a simple office surgery, the titanium implant quickly begins bonding with the bone. Called osseointegration, this process creates a super-strong and stable bond. In fact, few implants fail; most stay in place for decades, reports the Institute for Dental Implant Awareness.
In their Billerica, MA, office, Drs. Adam Danzig, Dr. Barry Danzig, and Dr. Lili Tayari place single-tooth implants or implants of various numbers, as needed, to support bridgework or full dentures. All provide optimal oral function, speech and bone integrity, along with realistic feel and appearance.
Can you receive dental implants?
A comprehensive oral examination plus special imaging at Grateful Dentists tells you for sure. Important factors your dentist considers are:
- Quality and size of the bone in your jaw (it may be augmented with donor tissue if necessary)
- Your medical and oral health history (a strong immune system helps)
- Tobacco usage (smoking doesn't disqualify a patient, but it can compromise long-term implant retention)
- Your personal commitment to the treatment timeline (osseointegration takes many weeks)
In addition, you must brush twice a day and floss carefully daily. Avoid teeth clenching and hard foods which place excessive pressures on implants. Visit Grateful Dentists every six months for routine check-ups and hygienic cleanings.

The Inner Workings of a Dental Implant
While maybe not the most interesting part for you, it’s important to understand how a dental implant works to see whether or not this is the right treatment option for you. After all, our Billerica, MA, general dentists want you to make an informed decision about your health.
A dental implant is a small tapered metal post or screw that is surgically placed within the jawbone where it functions like tooth roots. Once the dental implant is placed within the jawbone, the bone and tissue will naturally fuse together with the implant to become one permanent structure. Once this occurs, usually within 3-6 months after implant placement, the implant will be a stable, immovable fixture from which to support a false tooth or teeth.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Because of the uniqueness of how these restorations work, you might imagine that they can offer some pretty unique benefits as well. One of the major advantages to dental implants is how they function just like real tooth roots. This functionality ensures that you won’t find another restoration that is as close to real teeth in both looks and feel.
Other benefits include,
- A lifelong restoration
- Preventing jawbone loss (a complication of untreated tooth loss)
- Preventing teeth from shifting or moving around and around
- Fully restoring chewing and speech
- Support for your natural facial structure
- Boosting confidence and self-esteem
- Improvement to your appearance

Dental implants don't just close that gap in your smile, but also provide important oral health benefits. Billerica, MD, dentists - Dr. Adam Danzig, Dr. Barry Danzig and Dr. Lili Tayari - discuss how implants will help you restore your smile.
Dental implants offer unseen benefits
A more attractive smile is one of the most important benefits of dental implants for many Billerica residents, but it's not the only one. Dental implants offer a unique advantage that no other tooth replacement option can. Implants, posts that look like tiny screws, are designed to permanently take the place of the roots of a missing tooth.
Root replacement can help you avoid multiple problems that occur after tooth loss. Your roots hold your teeth in place in your jaw, but they also exert steady pressure on your jawbone. This constant pressure is needed to keep the bone strong. After a tooth is lost, the jawbone may start to shrink if the missing root isn't replaced with a dental implant. Eventually, bone loss can become so severe that other teeth near the one you lost become loose.
Have you ever noticed a difference in the appearance of people who've lost teeth? A strong jawbone is necessary to support the muscles in your face. If your jawbone recedes, your muscles, and the skin over them, begin to droop. The problem is more likely to occur if you've lost multiple teeth. Dental implants help you avoid this unpleasant consequence of tooth loss.
Implants offer other advantages
Do you find it harder to bite and chew since you've lost your tooth? Difficulty eating can be a serious problem after tooth loss. The crown that's attached to the top of the dental implant will restore your chewing ability and help you avoid the problem. Dental implants also help keep your teeth straight by preventing nearby teeth from shifting and drifting.
Protect your smile with dental implants. Call Drs. Adam and Barry Danzig and Dr. Tayari at their Billerica, MA, office at (978) 667-2741 to schedule your appointment.
Want to discover the many advantages your smile will experience when you get dental implants in Billerica?
Considering getting implants from our Billerica dentists Drs. Adam and Barry Danzig? Then it’s time you found out all that implants can offer you to see if this is the right restorative treatment for you.
Don’t Put Pressure on Healthy Teeth
Dental implants prevent the need to rely on other healthy teeth as a support for holding your restoration. Other restorations like bridges require healthy neighboring teeth to help anchor the restoration in place. This also means removing some healthy enamel from the tooth prior to placing the crown over the tooth. Once this is done this can never be reversed, but implants don’t need other teeth to hold it in place.
Protect Your Jawbone Health
When you lose a tooth the problems don’t just stop there. In fact, the jawbone will start to deteriorate and recede. This in turn will also affect the shape of your face and may cause cheeks to cave in and skin to sag (and who wants that?). But you can protect your jawbone and actually promote the growth of new bone cells when you get implants. Implants act as tooth roots and actually stimulate the jawbone so that it remains healthy.
Your Implants Can Last Forever
Other tooth loss treatments can last you several years before needing to be replaced, but wouldn’t you rather get a restoration from your restorative dentist in Billerica that could last the rest of your life with the proper care? Brush and floss your implants each day and don’t forget those six-month appointments and you’ll be enjoying your new tooth for a lifetime.
The Closest Thing to a Real Tooth
Of course nothing can truly be as good as your natural teeth but dental implants certainly come closer than any other restoration. That’s because the implant is designed to act just like tooth roots and actually fuses together with the jawbone to become a permanent structure. No other restoration does this.
