Rockville Dental Arts
As you grow older, or if you are injured, then your teeth can become damaged to the point that they have to be removed. Loose or missing teeth are unattractive and problematic. You may not be comfortable smiling in front of people. Additionally, you may find it hard to eat and you could even develop headaches from improper bite.
What Are Dental Implants?
For many years, the standard treatment for missing teeth was either dentures or a bridge that connected a false tooth to two surrounding teeth. These do not offer permanent solutions. They are not always visually appealing, and they can be uncomfortable. This is when dental implants came into the picture and they certainly are something you would want to discuss with a cosmetic or restorative dentist.
Dental implants offer a number of different benefits, including:
- They are stronger than dentures or bridges, offering a better and more permanent solution.
- The implants actually align your bite properly and maintain your jaw’s integrity. This means they reduce bone loss.
- The dental implants are actually embedded and affixed to the bone so they look much more natural.
Overall, there are numerous benefits to choosing dental implants.
If you do have loose or missing teeth, then you will want to contact Rockville Dental Arts to discuss your options. We use Hiossen Implants. This is a cutting edge system that uses top quality ceramic materials and titanium screws to secure the new tooth in place for the long run.
First, a post is placed, which will be embedded in the bone with a titanium screw. Then, once this has healed, the crown will be placed on top for a perfectly natural looking and functional tooth.
And we can work with you based on your needs. If you need more than one tooth replaced, we will use anchors for up to four missing teeth. Then, a dental bridge will be placed on the anchors. It is permanently in place and will not come loose. If you need all of your teeth replaced, then we offer this option as well. Your teeth will be replaced and functional with just four dental implant procedures.
When you visit for an appointment, a restorative dentist will discuss how the implants will work while determining if you are a good candidate. The procedure itself is completely painless and only takes a few months to heal completely. The end result will be natural looking teeth that function just like your own would have.
