Dental Implants

By having a 3D scan of your jaw before the surgery, your implant is placed faster and more precisely, resulting in less pain afterwards.

From start to finish, our implant surgeries take approximately 30 minutes.

Tooth replacement is yet another area of dentistry that has seen some impressive advances, and one of the most notable advances is dental implants.

Dental implants may seem new, but they have been in use for over 40 years. One reason they are considered the tooth replacement method of choice is that in that time they have had a 95% success rate.

Implants are the only tooth replacement that mimics the look, structure, and function of a natural tooth. The key to an implant’s success is the titanium replacement root that is left in your jaw and allowed to heal. This part of the procedure is performed here in our Northborough dental office using state-of-the-art technology to ensure optimal placement. After a period of healing, we attach a restoration like a crown, bridge, or denture to allow you eat, speak, and smile confidently again.

We have also seen a vast improvement in the materials used for dentures. If you decide they are a better choice for you, we can customize your dentures down to the smallest detail, including their shape, color, and the positioning of the artificial teeth. The base of your dentures is designed to conform perfectly to your jaw for a snug fit, so you don’t have to worry about embarrassing accidents.

If you are seeking tooth replacement but aren’t sure how to proceed, please call Northborough Family Dental. We will be happy to arrange a consultation with Dr. Moheban so he can present your options and help you make a decision that best fits all your needs. 

Since we are a fully digital dental practice, we are able to reduce our costs by manufacturing many pieces of the implant in our facility.  This allows us to pass the savings on to the patient, without lowering quality.
