Our dentist can place an implant in your jaw, and when it’s healed, add a mount and porcelain tooth. Your new addition will perform just like your other teeth and blend in with them too, giving you a gorgeous smile that’s whole again.
Our general and cosmetic dentistry practice has been serving local patients since 1989, and we go the extra mile to save smiles. This often means we arrange earlier hours for those with extensive treatment plans and take on dental emergencies. We value our patients and want them to look forward to coming back. If you’re in need of dental implants implants in Columbia, MD
or the surrounding areas, there’s no better place to get them than with Smile Savers Dentistry.
There are 2 types of implants: Endosteal and Subperiosteal. The former are surgically implanted right into your jaw bone and connected to a post during a second surgery after the gum tissue heals. Then an artificial tooth or teeth is either individually attached or grouped on a denture or bridge. Subperiosteal involves a metal frame just under the gum tissue that’s fitted onto the jawbone. Once the gums heal, the frame fixes onto it, and posts are attached that extend through the gums. The last step for this one is the same, with artificial teeth being placed on the posts.
We can help decide which is right for you. Replacing lost teeth keeps the remaining ones from moving to fill in the gap, preventing future problems. You also get to eat what you want and never worry about dentures falling out or moving around in your mouth. Aside from regular brushing, flossing, and checkups, there’s no extra maintenance either.
