What Are Dental Implants?

Implants are titanium posts surgically placed into your jawbone. They become integrated with the bone tissue to provide a permanent foundation for a custom dental prosthetic.

While traditional methods of tooth restoration replace only what is above the gumline, implant-supported restorations replace lost teeth from the root to the chewing surface.

Consultation and Candidacy

Many people who are missing one or more teeth are eligible for dental implants. The best candidates are in good health, free of periodontal disease, and have sufficient jawbone density. If you have sustained bone loss, our dental specialists can perform a preparatory bone grafting treatment to strengthen the tissues in your jaw. Because nicotine inhibits healing, the best candidates don't use tobacco in any form.

You will begin your treatment with a consultation at our Boston or Waltham dental office. At this time we perform an exam and take comprehensive CT scans of your jaw. Using innovative technology like the Sirona® 3D imaging system and virtual implant treatment planning software ensures the highest chance of treatment success even in the most complex cases of tooth restoration.  

Afraid of the Dentist? We Offer Calming Sedation 

Dental appointments can make some patients very nervous. That is why we offer safe, calming sedation dentistry to make your experience at our Boston or Waltham, MA, dental offices as stress-free and pain-free as possible. 

What Happens During Treatment?

Dental implant treatment takes place over several months, beginning with your custom planned implant surgery:
To maximize your benefits, we only use the finest quality implants from established companies in the United States.
To maximize your benefits, we only use the finest quality implants from established companies in the United States.


We begin by administering a local anesthetic (and sedation if needed) to ensure your comfort. Next, small incisions will be made in your gums. The titanium implants are then precisely placed into your jawbone using surgical guides. 


Over the next four to six months, your jawbone will fuse with the implants in a process known as osseointegration. We will check up on you during this period to make sure your recovery is progressing smoothly.


Once osseointegration is complete, you'll return for a second minor procedure to secure small connector pieces (abutments) to each implant. While less invasive than implant surgery, you will need a few weeks to recover before moving on to the last steps of treatment. 

Tooth Restoration

Once your gums have healed you will return to our Boston or Waltham, MA, offices to have your permanent dental restoration attached. These custom-made crowns, bridges, and dentures are crafted with the latest technology to ensure impeccable quality and fit. After making the final adjustments to the prosthetic, your treatment is complete and you can enjoy your new smile. 

Questions About Recovery?

You can expect some mild swelling and discomfort for a few days following implant surgery. Most patients can manage their side effects with ice packs and over-the-counter pain medication. Dr. Meola and his team will provide you with detailed instructions for your recovery, but if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our office.

Can I Afford Dental Implants?

Many factors affect the cost of your individual dental implant procedure, including the number of implants you require and the type of restoration used. While implants are not covered by basic insurance plans, your implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture will probably qualify for at least some amount of coverage. Our team will be happy to contact your provider on your behalf to find out what your benefits will cover. We also accept CareCredit® financing to help you manage your out-of-pocket expenses. If you are considering dental implants and want to get a cost estimate, please schedule a consultation at our Boston or Waltham offices.
