Get Your Smile Back
Implants can replace a single tooth, or support an entire set of dentures on the upper and lower jaw. The idea behind dental implants is to replicate the structure of a natural tooth from root to crown. This is accomplished by our dentist surgically placing the titanium-constructed implant into the area if the missing tooth.
Once placed, the implant not only anchors the soon-to-be-attached cosmetic crown in place, but it also plays a crucial role in preserving you the bone in the area of the missing tooth. Teeth maintain bone and if there is no tooth the jaw bone atrophies with time. Thus an implant helps to preserve the bone around itself. This quality is how an implant naturally fuses with the surrounding bone tissue and the gums, an effect that prevents further bone loss.
When properly cared for, dental implants have a high success rate, but this requires good oral hygiene and both regular dental check-ups and cleanings at our Frederick, MD, office. Once in place, implants look, feel, and function just like real teeth and can be a long term solution to tooth loss and restore lost chewing function or confidence that teeth impart on a patient’s smile.
