Implant Dentist in Bowie, MD
Have you lost a tooth - or even several teeth - recently and found yourself searching for options? Have you considered dentures or a partial but thought they might not be the right fit for you? Consider how dental implants might help you achieve a more natural, easy-to-maintain smile than other options.
If you’ve recently lost a tooth, you may be considering different options for replacing it. Though dentures and partials have come a long way and fit much more snugly than they used to, they still aren’t the same as having actual teeth. After losing a tooth, the closest thing to having an actual tooth back is a dental implant.
Dental implants are made of a titanium screw that’s anchored to the jaw and is topped with a crown. They have a number of benefits over other options including the fact that they are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. But that’s not all. Research has also shown that they strengthen bone mass in the jaw rather than weakening it like dentures can.
And once your new dental implant is installed, it requires no more upkeep than your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and checkups are all it takes to make sure that your implants last a lifetime.
If you’re wondering about how the procedure is performed, it’s really rather simple. After determining whether you’re a viable candidate for the procedure, your surgery will be scheduled. When you come in, a local anesthetic will be used that will keep you from experiencing any pain. The screw will be anchored to your jaw and, after the site has healed, the porcelain crown will be placed on it. It’s that simple. What makes it even more convenient is that you can have a single tooth done or multiple teeth. The procedure can be completely tailored to suit your needs.
