Say goodbye to those unsightly gaps in your smile and say hello to a full smile again.
Dental implants are providing countless adults dealing with tooth loss with a new lease on life and you could be next. If you are missing one or more teeth then it might be time to talk with our Gaithersburg, MD, dentists Dr. Adam Schneider and Dr. Katie Staub about whether or not dental implants are right for you.
What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement out there that actually functions just like a real tooth does. The metal implant itself is an artificial tooth root, which is placed into the jawbone where it will, over time, fuse together with bone and tissue to become a permanent part of the jawbone. From there, our Gaithersburg, MD, restorative dentist will place a dental crown over the implant.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Since implants are as close to real teeth as you can come, it should come as no surprise that implants offer some pretty amazing benefits. The benefits of dental implants include,
- Restore chewing and speaking
- Improved appearance and self-confidence
- Preventing teeth from shifting into open gaps in your smile
- Preserving the jawbone, preventing bone loss and supporting your facial structure
Implants are also considered long-term tooth replacements so you won’t have to worry about having to replace the restoration every few years. In fact, an implant is strong enough to last several decades, which means that you could end up having this new tooth for the rest of your life.
What makes someone a good candidate for dental implants?
Dental implants can be used to replace one, several or even all of your teeth. Therefore, healthy adults dealing with some degree of tooth loss could be right for dental implants. During your consultation, we will perform an oral exam and take x-rays to check the health of your teeth, gums and jawbone. We will also go through your medical history to pinpoint health problems or issues that could affect the implant process.
