If you have a missing tooth (or teeth) and are self-conscious about it, we can help. Dr. George Ghaly and our team at George Ghaly, DDS understand how a missing tooth in your smile can affect your self-confidence.

To restore a missing tooth, we offer dental implant restoration for our patients in Westborough, Massachusetts. Dental implants can effectively replace all of your teeth, several teeth or even just one, according to your needs.

So how do dental implants work? They are securely planted in the jawbone to replace missing teeth. Our dentist places a biocompatible titanium screw into your jawbone where the missing tooth was located. This titanium screw acts as the tooth root by holding your implant in place securely. As the site heals after surgery, the jawbone fuses to the titanium screw.

Once healing is complete and the implant is secure, our dentist attaches the tooth onto the post. The type of dental restoration will depend on how many teeth are being replaced, so you may receive custom-made complete or partial dentures, a bridge or a crown. No matter what option is used, our goal is to make sure that your implant is comfortable and pleasing to blend in with your smile.

At George Ghaly, DDS in Westborough, Massachusetts, we invite you to call 508-366-1911 to find out more about our dental implant restoration options, or if you want to schedule your next visit with Dr. George Ghaly. We look forward to helping you maintain your healthy, confident smile!
