Implants

Surgically placed artificial tooth roots, providing a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

Implants

If you have missing teeth, dental implants can restore your tooth function, strength, and appearance. Nasrin Sadeghi, DMD, Medha Singh, DMD, BDS, MS, and the team at First Dental Associates in Reading, Massachusetts, offer this popular, dependable tooth replacement option for patients with one or more missing teeth. Call the office today or schedule an appointment online to find out whether you’re a candidate for implants.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that the team at First Dental Associates surgically places in your jawbone. Once placed, implants connect to crowns and bridges or dentures, providing a stable foundation for replacement teeth. Dental implants offer a long-lasting solution for missing teeth that require less maintenance than less permanent options.


What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants offer many advantages for replacing missing teeth. After bonding to your jawbone, dental implants can:

Improve tooth function

Since implants bond to your jawbone, they allow you to chew comfortably and speak clearly, mimicking your natural tooth function.

Preserve the jawbone

The roots of your teeth help stimulate your jawbone. Without healthy roots, the bone begins to break down and reabsorb into the body. Dental implants osseointegrate (bond) to your jawbone to preserve tissue and prevent bone deterioration.

Last for decades

Unlike dentures, bridges, and other temporary replacement teeth, dental implants can last for 25 years or longer*.

Boost oral hygiene

Dental implants require no special care. You can brush and floss normally to preserve your oral hygiene.

Will I need a bone graft before getting dental implants? 

Dental implants require plenty of healthy tissue in your jawbone to osseointegrate properly. The team takes multiple scans before surgery, including digital X-rays, to ensure you’re a candidate for implants.  

The team may recommend a bone graft if you don’t have enough bone in your jaw to support implants. This process involves taking bone from your jaw or hip, or donated tissue, and placing it into the area containing low-density jawbone. The healing process can take 4-6 months.

What can I expect from dental implant surgery? 

When you arrive for dental implant surgery, the team administers anesthesia before making an incision in the gums to access the jawbone. Next, they drill a small hole into the jawbone and surgically place the implant. Healing after surgery usually takes about 6-12 weeks. 

Once your mouth fully heals, the team takes digital impressions to create your custom-made replacement teeth. They connect these prosthetics to your implants at your final appointment.

Fantastic Team

This is a team of wonder women! Their kindness compassion and complete lack of judgment was a slice saving as the impeccable job that they did on my ex-partner's teeth. It was one of the worst situations they had seen and a very delicate situation they tended to with utmost care. Even fun! The relationship ended but my gratitude for them is eternal and hope more humans can be like them!

Pleasurable Experience

I was referred to First Dental Associates by a family friend and have been a patient for more than 5 years now. The team at First Dental makes a visit to the dentist a pleasurable experience. Upon entering the office, I am greeted by Carol at the front desk, who always wears a smile and asks how my family is doing, creating the kind of personal experience that is hard to find these days. The hygienists are always so friendly, professional, and thorough with cleanings. Dr. Sadeghi, also very kind and professional, has completed flawless dental work for me from replacing fillings to administering my Invisalign treatment. The office is impeccably clean and the equipment is all new. If you are looking for a dentist in the Reading area, I highly recommend First Dental Associates.

Wonderful Experience!

Dr. Sadeghi was wonderful. I have been on this bumpy road with my teeth for a couple of years now, bouncing around from office to office, living with anxiety about the future of my teeth. She took the time to look over my records sent to her office by several providers and establish a theory, and a game plan. She was compassionate, and such a good critical thinker. It didn't take me long to realize she was on my side and committed to being a caregiver. I really appreciate her!
