What are dental implants?

Implants are a lasting, natural-looking way to replace one or more missing teeth. The first step to getting a dental implant is the placement of the implant post. The post is surgically placed into the jawbone to provide a strong, stable foundation for the implant restoration. After the placement, we allow a period of healing so the bone tissues can begin to bond with the titanium implant post. Our dentists then attach the implant restoration on top of the post to complete your tooth replacement. Based on how many teeth are missing, we may recommend a dental crown, a dental bridge, a partial denture, or a complete denture as your implant restoration. Each restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.

Do I need an implant?

If you have lost one or more teeth, Dr. Dinh and Dr. Cha may recommend implants as a good solution to replacing your teeth. Because a dental implant replaces both the root and crown of the missing tooth, it is a very natural-looking and -feeling restoration. With proper care, your dental implants in Frederick, Maryland, can last a lifetime.
