Who can get dental implants? 

Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth. Implants can be used to helping almost anyone who is missing one or more teeth. These artificial roots can support dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures. With implants, you can restore your complete smile as well as your ability to eat the foods that you love. By getting implants, you can feel like you have full set of healthy teeth once again

Yes, at Nashua Dental Associates we use advanced laser dentistry as part of our gum disease treatment. Laser therapy has many advantages over traditional gum surgery because it does not use scalpels or stitches. The laser evaporates the infection in the gums and helps the teeth and gums to naturally reattach. Patients find the laser therapy much more comfortable, and they can expect a faster recovery time.

The best tooth replacement depends on a number of factors, including the dental issues you need to address, the overall condition of your mouth, your lifestyle, and your budget. We offer multiple tooth replacement options, including dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures. Our doctors can even perform a procedure in which you’ll receive dental implants and dentures all in one day! We will help you determine which tooth replacement will best meet your needs.

The CPAP is the gold standard when it comes to treating sleep apnea. But if you have mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, the most common form of sleep apnea, we can use a comfortable oral appliance to resolve your issues. The oral appliance moves the lower jaw forward to keep the airways open during sleep. Unlike the CPAP, the oral appliance is comfortable, is easy to travel with, and does not disrupt your sleep partner.

Thanks to our doctors’ expertise and their use of electronic equipment, root canals are a virtually pain-free procedure in our office. We thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthetic, and we offer dental sedation if you need it. Since root canals remove the infections that can cause toothaches, the only painful thing about root canals is not getting one!

Some dentists today are trained to help with more than just teeth and gums. At Nashua Dental Associates, our doctors can help with relief from chronic snoring and sleep apnea. The latter condition can do more than just rob you of your sleep. It can increase your risks of heart disease, hypertension, and car accidents. A custom-designed oral appliance you wear while sleeping can help eliminate both snoring and sleep apnea.

We accept almost all types of dental insurance! What does this mean to you? All of our patients, regardless of their insurance situation, receive the same high quality of care. We can also submit your dental claim to your insurance provider to help determine your coverage.

Nashua Dental Associates is proud to offer same-day dental emergency care if you call our office before noon. We also provide 24-hour emergency phone call monitoring so you can speak with one of our dentists about your situation. At your appointment, we’ll take immediate steps to get you out of pain and assess your needs. Call 603-882-2575 immediately if you have a dental crisis.

The short answer is YES! It is safe for you to visit our office during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are taking precautions and putting protocols in place to protect every patient and team member who comes into our office. Your oral health cannot be put on hold indefinitely, so call today to schedule your next appointment!
