If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may be thinking about getting dental implants. Today dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement method because they look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. If you would like to meet with our cosmetic dentist in Baltimore to see if you are a good candidate for dental implants, we hope that you will make an appointment to come in to see us at our dental practice, Spectrum Dental.
At our dental practice, our two expert dentists are Dr. Tamara Dulan and Dr. Katherine Grant Collier. When you come to our dental practice to see our cosmetic dentist in Baltimore about getting dental implants, she will first need to assess your individual dental situation, and make sure that your jawbone is thick enough and healthy enough to withstand the dental implant procedure. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for this procedure, and most patients are, you will be able to have a titanium dental implant root surgically inserted for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Dental implants are also used to fully secure dentures and removable bridges. Once the dental implant roots are inserted, there will be a healing period of several months during which time your jawbone will fully heal, and the dental implant roots will firmly fuse to the jawbone.
Once our dentist determines that the healing period has completed, you will have a beautiful porcelain crown permanently attached to the top of each dental implant root. At this point, your dental implant will be complete and you will be able to smile and speak again in total confidence. You will also be able to eat anything you want while you remain in total comfort, and without fear that your new dental implants will slip or embarrass you in any way. You will once again be able to enjoy food such as corn on the cob and steak. And, if well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing and with periodic dental cleanings at our office, your dental implants should last you for a lifetime.
