Everyone is a candidate for dental implants at 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. Whether you are missing a front tooth or a back molar or any other tooth it can easily be replaced to full form, function and proper esthetics using the latest in implant technology.
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 in Rockville Maryland with an implant specialist like Dr. Norkiewicz.
How Long Does it Take to Get a Dental Implant?
Here at Rockville Dental Arts, Dr. Norkiewicz is extremely experienced in placing implants as he has done over 1000 implant placements. How long does it take? “Sometimes 15 minutes and sometimes 30 minutes” It depends on the case, but overall anywhere from 15-30 minutes. That’s quicker that most fillings! Generally we allow an hour in our schedule for an implant procedure. There’s some paperwork and we also go over all the post-op instructions after the procedure. It’s really very easy to put implants in – especially when you have as much experience as Dr. Norkiewicz!
Your Options for Dental Implants
If you do have loose or missing teeth, then you will want to contact our dental implant center at Rockville Dental Arts to discuss your options. We use the very best dental implants on the market. 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 tooth 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.
