That means that we’re able to take care of the entire procedure from placing the actual implant to fitting you with a custom restoration. We also offer denture stabilization, which is a way to secure your dentures to implants so that they fit and stay in place better. You won’t need to drive around town to find different specialists. Instead you can trust Dr. Gupta, a Fellow with the International Dental Implant Association, to take care of you. Contact our office for a dental implant consultation!Contact Us
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer quite a few benefits. Many patients with dental implants appreciate how they essentially function and look like a regular tooth. This is because the procedure involves placing a biocompatible post that fuses with your jawbone. This post works as an artificial tooth root and gives you increased stability. We also take great care to design a restoration to top the post that fits in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. It looks natural and it can even be brushed and flossed like a regular tooth.
Besides appearance and durability, dental implants have benefits for your health as well. They can prevent, and sometimes even reverse, bone loss. They also stop your surrounding teeth from moving and changing your bite. Schedule a visit to Grafton Dental Care to learn more about the advantages of choosing dental implants to restore your smile!

What is the difference between a dental implant and implant-supported dentures?
Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or a few missing teeth, while implant-supported dentures are used to replace an entire arch of teeth. Another key difference is that implant-supported dentures, like traditional dentures, are removable and must be removed at night. Dental implants, on the other hand, are permanently fixed in place and can only be removed by a dental professional. The dental restoration that you choose depends on factors like how many teeth you have and how many need to be extracted, and our team can work with you to determine the best option for you.
Should I get a dental implant or a bridge?
Dental implants and bridges can both be used to replace teeth. Dental bridges are easy to place, require very little recovery time, and are less invasive than dental implants. However, dental implants are very stable restorations that don’t typically require much after they have been placed. Both options are custom designed to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. If you need a quick, simple tooth replacement option, a dental bridge might be a good choice. If you need a tooth or multiple teeth replaced and want them to last a lifetime, dental implants are usually your best bet.
How can I take care of my dental implant?
One of the great benefits of dental implants is the fact that they can be treated just like natural teeth. There is no special care required, and you don’t have to take them out at night like dentures. We recommend brushing and flossing like you normally would, as well as scheduling routine cleanings and exams with our team at least twice per year. There are no food restrictions with dental implants, but we encourage patients to try to reduce the wear and tear on their dental restorations and natural teeth by avoiding chewing on things like popcorn kernels, ice, and hard candy.
