At Sharon Dental Group, we see every day how tooth implants can transform our patients’ mouths — and their lives. As a permanent solution to missing teeth, dental implants are some of the most innovative solutions in dentistry today.

The Sharon Dental Group teeth implants consist of tiny titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth.
Before teeth implants, there were no fixed solutions available for people who lost all their teeth. Today, the Sharon Dental Group implant dentists can replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable and highly aesthetic solution. Dental implants are the most permanent solution to missing teeth and even better, there’s no need to destroy your good, healthy tooth structure.
The benefits of teeth implants go beyond the aesthetic — they can also help prevent bone deterioration and preserve your facial structure. And the professional team at Sharon Dental Group makes the dental implant process easy. We lead the New England area in dental implant experience, and continually work with the top implant providers to offer you the latest technology and techniques. We guide you through each step of the implant process, from placing the dental implant to restoring the final tooth.
Today, a Sharon Dental Group’s implant dentist can replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable and highly esthetic solution.
Dental implants, fused to the jawbone, keep the bone healthy and your teeth securely in place. Once implants have been placed in your jaw, they can be restored with fixed bridgework or over dentures. A fixed bridge is permanently secured to the dental implants, while removable overdentures are held in place by a bar and clip, or by one of many other attachments currently available.
With over a quarter century of clinical success, Swedish and American research has proven that osseointegrated dental implants are effective in over ninety-six percent of all patients treated. With over 10,000 osseointegrated dental implants cases, Sharon Dental Group is one of the leading centers for osseointegrated dental implants in New England.
The early dental implant treatment protocols were based on the concept that an implant had to be integrated in bone prior to loading. However, an increasing number of publications and reports illustrate that one-stage surgery and immediate dental implants can be successfully used in many indications.
The advantages of immediate dental implants are easy to recognize:
- The ability to have fixed teeth immediately
- No need to use an uncomfortable removable prosthesis
- Improved esthetics
- Increased patient self-image.
Undoubtedly the lower dentures present the most difficulty for patients adjusting to dentures for the first time, as well as experienced denture wearers. It can be frustrating as you attempt to eat certain foods, or even to speak with confidence without fear that your lower teeth will begin to float in your mouth.
The Denture Stabilization System is a mini dental implant system that in most cases can be placed and attached to your lower denture in the same visit. There is no need for any incisions or stitches. Within one hour you can be on your way with a secure denture, able to eat and speak much more comfortably. Further, the Mini Implant System is much more affordable, in some cases 60-70% less expensive.
The Mini Implant System consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of the denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and hold the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue.
Placement of the implants is accomplished quickly and easily in a process performed in the dentist’s office. The procedure generally takes 1 hour. Using a precise, controlled minimally invasive surgical technique, Mini Implants are placed into he jaw bone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue and provide a strong, solid foundation for securing dentures. It is one step procedure that involves minimally invasive surgery, no sutures nor the typical months of healing.
