Dr. Gramse's love of dentistry came naturally - she worked with her father in his dental practice, first as a dental assistant, then as a Registered Dental Hygienist, and after graduating from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 1995, worked with him until taking over his practice in 1999. Dr. Gramse developed an Excellence in Comprehensive Care with advanced training in Cosmetic, Restorative & Implant Dentistry.
Dr. Gramse is the proud mother of three children: Benito, 14 and 12-year old twins Giovanni and AnnaBelle. Devoted to her family and her dental practice, Dr. Gramse spends her precious free time gardening, enjoying her pets and as an avid hockey fan, following the play of her three children.
A caring, compassionate professional, Dr. Gramse constantly strives to offer her patients the highest quality care in a warm, family-oriented environment.
Before the development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.
Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.
Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet biocompatible material like metal or ceramic.
