Missing teeth can be detrimental to your oral health in many ways. It isn’t just an unsightly appearance that you have to worry about – we’re talking about keeping away harmful bacteria, too. You see, when there’s an open space in your smile, it’s usually the first place bacteria attack. And why wouldn’t it? It’s an open space with zero protection. This isn’t good news for anyone that has missing teeth. Most patients understand the appearance implications but fail to consider the health risks they’re posing to themselves. Any missing teeth that have not been replaced can turn a bad situation into an even worse one.
Our Boston, MA office specializes in supplying our patients with dental implants. In the past, bridges and dentures were the procedures of choice when it came to taking care of a missing-teeth problem. Today, it’s all about dental implants. They’ve overtaken dentures and bridges as the most preferred treatment for missing teeth. They offer many more benefits than bridges and dentures while providing maximum comfort for our patients. Dr. Share is the dentist federal district Boston residents can trust for maximum comfort with missing teeth using our restorative dentistry service.

The Problem with Metal Fillings
Amalgam is a combination of different metals that have been used in dentistry for over 150 years, and are still commonly used today. Amalgam consists of silver, tin, zinc, copper, and about 50% mercury. The problem is that mercury is a known deadly toxin, and prolonged mercury exposure has been linked to the development of serious neurological disorders, among other serious health concerns. Additionally, metal fillings can expand and cause tooth fracturing and new decay over time. Consequently, metal dental fillings can actually cause more oral health concerns than they fix.
The Tooth Colored Fillings Solution
Tooth colored fillings are made from composite plastic or porcelain and contain no metal whatsoever. They can attach to damaged teeth seamlessly, and will not expand or contract with temperature changes. They don’t conceal decay, and with proper care, can last a lot longer than their metal infused counterparts.
Don’t take chances with a mouth full of metal; schedule a tooth colored fillings appointment with Dr. Share today.

Many people take their smiles seriously, making sure that it looks the best it can at all times. Many people consider a smile a first impression, and when you surround yourself with friends, loved ones, and coworkers, you want to be sure you make a positive, lasting impression. Unfortunately, if you have teeth missing from your smile, you may find it difficult to be as outgoing as you would like to be. Having a smile that is not complete can be detrimental both to your oral health and the health of your body, and many people may not know what to do to restore their smiles back to their former glory. Fortunately, Dr. Jack B. Share is able to restore the smiles of his patients with dental implants at his Boston, MA dental office.
The reason why replacing missing teeth is so important is because it can put your oral health and your bodily health at risk. If left untreated, not having a full smile can put you more at risk for a misaligned bite, gum disease, and TMJ. Also, not having a complete smile can cause the other teeth in your smile to shift in order to make up for the extra space. Our tooth’s root acts as an anchor to keep your teeth in place, and when that is removed, the effects can be detrimental.
It is important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Share to make sure you are a candidate for dental implants. He will evaluate your smile in its current state, review your medical history, and check your bone density. If you are a candidate for dental implants, a titanium post will be embedded into your jaw. This creates a secure bond, and, over time and will proper healing, the post will fuse with the bone in your jaw, promoting new bone growth. After healing, the crown is added atop the implant. The crown looks just like a tooth, so your new smile will look as natural as possible. If you would like Dr. Share’s help restoring your smile using dental implants, contact our office today!
