Dental Implants near Bel Air, MD
A dental implant is a medical grade titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone just beneath the gum line. This metal post will act as the tooth root substitute providing a strong foundation for the dental restoration.
They type of restoration that will be attached to the implant will depend on the number of teeth you are missing and their location. Dental implants do not come loose like dentures and can last a lifetime if cared for properly along with regular dental visits.
Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of your teeth. They are capped with a dental restoration that is custom fit to your smile. Dental restorations now use the latest in dental materials for a natural looking tooth replacement. We offer the following types of implant restorations:
Implant supported dental crown – This implant restoration is used when a patient has a single missing tooth.
Implant supported dental bridge – A bridge is attached to at least two dental implants if a patient is missing several consecutive missing teeth.
Implant supported denture – If the patient is missing all of their teeth or an entire arch, we will place anywhere from 4-8 implants to secure a denture on each arch.
