Implants can be used to replace either front or back teeth, leaving adjacent teeth untouched and creating a realistic replica of the lost tooth. First, surgery places a root-like titanium screw into the jawbone, guided by a thin acrylic stent for proper placement. Then—typically on a second visit after the bone has had time to fuse around the implant—a lab-fabricated porcelain crown will be attached to fill the gap.<p>
When not cleaning, straightening, and whitening teeth, Boston Dental‘s team of dentists continues to advance its knowledge of the dental arts. Dr. Travis Mize teaches at Harvard School of Dental Medicine, and Dr. Alice Cheng volunteers at a clinic for young adults in need of free emergency dental care. The multicultural staff members are fluent in several languages, enabling better communication with patients while discussing treatment options and impressing tongues enough that they stay out of the way. The clinic aims to take away one more stressor from dental visits by offering validated parking at the Lafayette Place Garage around the corner.
