Patients with missing teeth enjoy the benefits of modern advances in treatment options, including dental implants for the most life-like replacement of a lost tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or to secure a dental bridge or denture when several teeth are lost. At Pioneer Valley Dental Arts, our team of dental professionals offers the convenience of experienced, comprehensive implant dentistry in one location. Our office is convenient to Springfield, MA and welcomes new patients from many local communities.
Dr. Evans and Dr. Ziemba have advanced training in the placement of all types of dental implants and can help restore function, health, and beauty to your smile. From the initial consultation to the final placement of a custom fit restoration, you can expect to receive personalized dentistry using the highest standard of care and the latest technology.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
A dental implant replaces both the missing tooth and the tooth root, supporting healthy bone structure in the jaw and a more stable smile. When a tooth is lost, changes begin to occur above and below the gum line. The missing crown and root no longer keep adjacent teeth in place and promote the generation of healthy bone cells in the jaw. Tooth movement, jaw shrinkage and changes in the bite slowly have a detrimental effect on both the function and appearance of your smile.
Prompt, effective tooth replacement is the key to avoiding the domino effect of a lost tooth and can stabilize your smile for the best long term result.
Dental implants are permanent, secure and will allow you to enjoy natural chewing and speaking function once healed. The stability of a dental implant also reduces gum irritation, a common concern with traditional removable appliances. Dr. Evans or Dr. Ziemba will evaluate the condition of your dental health and recommend the most appropriate treatment for restoring your smile. Our goal is to meet your needs with dental care that will address both oral health and cosmetic related concerns.
Implant Dentures & Bridges
Dental implants can be used to secure a dental bridge or denture with a stable result that does not require daily adhesives and supports improved long term health. A stable smile can give you back the confidence to eat and speak without fear of losing your teeth or feeling embarrassed. Dr. Evans and Dr. Ziemba offer comprehensive care for the placement of an implant secured denture or bridge, providing the most natural functioning result with all of the benefits that implants offer for long term dental health.
If you have been suffering from a poorly fitted denture or bridge, an implant secured denture can be life-changing. Your new smile will also help to stabilize your oral health, reducing the risk of developing gum disease and other complex concerns related to missing teeth. For patients with compromised jaw bone, we offer the All-On-Four™ procedure. This utilizes strategically placed dental implants for securing a denture when a full arch or all teeth are missing and bone has begun to deteriorate. Dr. Evans and Dr. Ziemba work with patients on an individual basis, providing a personalized treatment plan for your unique needs and goals.
