What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made from specially treated titanium, which is implanted into the bone. After a period of healing, the implant is restored with a tooth to restore function and aesthetics. This tooth is permanently inserted into the mouth and will not need to be removed for maintenance. A properly placed and maintained implant can provide a lifetime of service to the patient and is often considered the best option for those with missing teeth. The gold standard for tooth replacement is a dental implant.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Our patients tend to experience the benefits of dental implants almost immediately.
Some of the benefits of dental implant services include:
- Enhanced dental health
- Restored self-confidence
- Improved eating, speaking, and smiling
- Avoiding potential dental issues, such as bone loss, tooth movement, and occlusal imbalance
An additional benefit of dental implant services is that they can often be installed in one day. This helps our patients ease dental pain almost immediately. Our board-certified periodontist is often able to extract the broken front tooth, place the implant, and install a lifelike temporary tooth in its place. This is why it’s essential to replace missing teeth, and dental implants are the best way to do just that.
Complete Dental Implant Solutions
At Dental Designs of Maryland – Hanover, MD, dental implants are placed in the mouth under the expert supervision of our periodontal specialist, Dr. Joshua Metzger. Our team uses the latest in dental technology, so we offer a range of options to replace your missing teeth using dental implants that are nearly indistinguishable from your natural teeth. We pride ourselves on providing all of our dental implant treatments under one roof, so you don’t have to drive around town for various dental appointments.
Another option for dental implants is implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are similar to regular dentures, except they are supported on the bottom by four to six dental implants. The implants latch onto the denture via connectors that snap-in. Although patients still must remove their dentures nightly, implant-supported dentures ensure a tight fit, which is the top reason that people don’t like wearing dentures. Implant-supported dentures are horseshoe-shaped, so there’s no need to cover the roof of the mouth, which is another potential source of discomfort.
One of the most advanced dental implant options is the hybrid overdenture. A hybrid overdenture is a full arch prosthesis firmly anchored to the jawbone by four to six dental implants. This prosthesis is permanently attached and does not come out. A hybrid overdenture is one of the best options that we have to improve the appearance of our patients’ smiles.
