We know that missing teeth can cause emotional stress and lead to more dental health issues, and we’re here to help you navigate the process of choosing a replacement option. As a Woburn prosthodontist, Dr. Guldalian is an expert with dental implants, and she’ll work with you to create a permanent, natural-looking prosthetic tooth that blends in with the rest of your smile.
One of the best things about dental implants is that they can last a lifetime with proper oral care. The durability of dental implants is a major advantage, and this means that you won’t need to make multiple costly visits to get them replaced. Since they are surgically inserted into your jawbone and they are made to mimic a tooth root, they look and feel completely natural. Call us today to hear more about what dental implants can do for you!
The process starts with a consultation at Nova Dental. After Dr. Guldalian examines your gums and jawbone to make sure you’re a good candidate for implants, we’ll connect you with a specialist who will surgically place a small titanium post into your gum line. Once this heals, Dr. Guldalian will attach it to a custom restoration that is built to blend in with the rest of your teeth and look completely natural. You’ll leave our office with a brand new smile!
Don’t let a missing tooth keep you from optimal dental health or a confident smile.

When it comes to getting dental implants in Woburn or Winchester, a prosthodontist like Dr. Talar Guldalian is your best option. Prosthodontists go through at least 3 additional years of training after they obtain their DDS or DMD degree, and focus on restoring the mouth with procedures like dental implants, crowns and bridges, dentures, and more.
Compared to a general dentist, a prosthodontist like Dr. Guldalian has more advanced training and more experience placing dental implants, and can provide you with better overall results. Getting dental implants is a big investment of time and money, so it’s best to choose a dental professional with the best possible qualifications.

Dental implants are considered to be a permanent treatment, and they last 30+ years with proper care. You can expect your implants to last even longer if you take care of your mouth and focus on good oral hygiene.
But while the implants, which function as artificial roots, can last a very long time, your implant restorations (false teeth) may not last quite as long. Unlike the implants themselves, dental restorations like dental crowns, bridges, and dentures are regularly exposed to wear & tear from biting and chewing, so they need to be replaced more frequently.
Usually, you will only need to start thinking about replacing your implant restoration after about 10 years, and they can last much longer than this. But because your restoration will eventually wear out, it’s important to keep coming to Nova Dental for six-month appointments with Dr. Talar Guldalian. She will check on your restoration and ensure that it’s healthy, and recommend replacement if necessary.
The care precautions you’ll need to take to keep your mouth healthy vary somewhat based on the type of implant restoration you have. A dental crown, for example, requires very little specialized care. As long as you brush and floss your teeth properly and see Dr. Talar Guldalian for six-month teeth cleanings, you will be able to keep your dental implant and restoration healthy.
Caring for a permanent dental bridge or non-removable denture is a bit different, and it may take some practice and getting used to. You will need to brush your teeth and use a special interdental brush to clean your implants and to clean between your bridges. Floss or floss tape may also be used to clean between the bridge and implants, and to keep your gums clean.
Removable implant dentures are typically treated similarly to traditional dentures. You’ll take them out when you sleep and soak them in a cleaning solution, and you’ll want to rinse your dentures and clean your gums after you eat.
After your treatment is complete, Dr. Talar Guldalian will provide you with a comprehensive set of care instructions, which will ensure that your implants and your implant-supported restoration will remain healthy. Adjusting your oral care routine may take some getting used to, but proper oral hygiene is essential for a healthy mouth after you get dental implants.
