Full Dental Implant Reconstruction

Dr. Cummings was a pioneer in implant dentistry, directing dental implant recall at Tufts Dental School from 1988-1995. He published his findings in the world's leading prosthodontic journal in 1995.

Featured Case 1: Full Dental Implant Teeth-in-a-Day

This patient replaced all the lower teeth with four dental implants. The case was completed in about 2 hours with no discomfort and the patient left very happy.





Featured Case 2: Full Dental Implant Reconstruction

This patient replaced her denture with a full upper-arch implant bridge.





Planning Dental Implant Treatment

Implants require ample bone tissue for support. In the prolonged absence of tooth roots, the jaw will begin to atrophy. If you have waited to address missing teeth, and have experienced some loss of bone tissue, Dr. Cummings may recommend a bone graft, in which donor tissue is used to augment the jaw, creating a suitable base. In other instances, he may recommend mini dental implants, which have a smaller diameter than their traditional counterparts and do not require as much bone tissue. With digital technology, however, Dr. Cummings can be confident as to exactly how much bone the patient has and will need.


Once Dr. Cummings has determined that you are a candidate for implants and finalizes your treatment plan, he will schedule your surgery. Dental implant surgery is less invasive than extracting teeth. Rarely, is more than an Advil needed for discomfort. Typically patients leave with temporaries and return one month later to start restoring the implant.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants provide several important benefits:

  • Dental implants can eliminate the need to wear full dentures. More than half lower denture wearers are unhappy and cannot eat what they want. Unhappy lower denture wears that convert to dental implants now chew confidently for less than a car payment.
  • Implants are the only restorative solution that can stop bone atrophy following tooth loss.
  • Implants give patients an incredible boost in confidence, knowing that they look great and can chew confidently.
