Learn About Our Framingham Implant Dentist
Dental Implants are small cylinders made from titanium metal. To replace a missing tooth, Dr. Hanna will surgically place the dental implant into the jawbone of the empty tooth socket, and then crown it with a tooth restoration.
Dental implants have some unique advantages over other kinds of tooth restorations. If you are missing teeth, dental implants can change your life.
Why Get Dental Implants?
There are lots of reasons to get dental implants:
• Implants look like natural teeth
• They allow you to eat all the foods you were missing out on as a result of wearing dentures or having an empty space.
• Implants are stable and won’t slip out as dentures might. Implants restore speech. Dental implants are a permanent solution to all of the problems caused by missing teeth

Even more importantly, dental implants are the only kind of tooth restoration that prevents the loss of jaw bone density that happens when natural teeth fall out or are removed. Up to 60% of underlying bone mass can be lost in the first three years after tooth removal. Furthermore, adjacent teeth can start to move out of alignment to fill in the gaps where teeth once were causing additional oral concerns.
The Dental Implant Procedure
With today’s modern technology, most people find that getting dental implants was simpler than what they expected. Dr. Hanna uses 3D digital images of patient’s mouths to determine the best surgical implant placement plan. He also offers sedation options to take away any dental anxiety patients might have. Together with his expert training coupled with his many years of experience and a clear placement plan, Dr. Hanna places the implant into the jawbone and after 3-6 months of healing and bone integration, Dr. Hanna will restore the tooth/teeth with an implant restoration. Patients will then begin to eat normally and experience the difference of having such an innovative dental solution.
