Rock Your Smile with Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Missing teeth cause embarrassment and make proper chewing difficult, so it’s best to let your dentist in Owings Mills replace them. If you have a problem wearing conventional dentures or dental bridges because of mouth soreness or general intolerance, dental implants might be the perfect answer. All you need is a healthy jawbone and a little help from a skillful dentist.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are metal posts or anchors that your dentist surgically fuses to your jawbone to serve as stable roots for artificial teeth. Once they’re permanently positioned, replacement teeth are mounted onto them. Unlike traditional bridges, implants don’t have to attach to adjacent teeth. They can support an individual tooth or groups of teeth affixed to a bridge or denture.

Types of Dental Implants

There are two types of implants that are approved by the American Dental Association. The most common are endosteal implants, which require two surgeries. During the first surgery, the dental implant is placed directly into the jawbone. Once gums heal, the second surgery connects a post to the implant, and an artificial tooth or group of teeth are affixed to the post. A subperiosteal implant is a metal frame that’s positioned just below your gum line. As soft tissues heal, the frame gradually affixes itself to the jawbone. Your dentist then mounts artificial teeth to the posts that are attached to the frame.

Dental Implant Benefits

Dental implants provide full functionality and natural-looking results, and they can even preserve your dignity. Structures like dentures and bridges attached to the metal posts won’t shift or slide around inside your mouth, so you can eat and speak without fearing embarrassment. Because dentures, crowns, and bridges fit more securely when attached to implants, they feel more comfortable and natural than their conventional peers.

Dental Implants Cost and Care Considerations

While the dental implants cost is generally higher than other tooth replacement options, and many insurance carriers only cover 10 percent of costs or less, a dentist in Owings Mills can help you plan a budget that restores your smile without destroying your budget.
