If you have missing teeth, you will want to have them replaced by some type of tooth replacement method. Many patients come to our dental practice, Spectrum Dental, to get dental implants in Baltimore because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth.
Our two top-notch dentists are Dr. Tamara Miles-Dulan and Dr. Katherine Grant Collier. If you have missing teeth then need to be replaced, you will be able to meet with one of our dentists to see if you are a good candidate for dental implants in Baltimore. In order to get dental implants, your jawbone should be healthy enough and thick enough to be able to heal completely from the dental implant surgery, and so that the dental implant root can fully fuse to the jawbone. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for the procedure, our dentist will surgically insert a titanium dental implant root into the precise location so that your new tooth will be comfortable and look great. There will then be a healing period of several months during which time the dental implant root, or roots, will fully fuse to the jawbone. Once it is determined that your dental implants have fully fused to the jawbone and are ready to provide a secure base for the new “tooth,” our dentist will permanently attach a porcelain crown to the top portion of each new dental implant. At this point, your dental implants are complete and you will be able to once again eat, speak, and smile with total confidence. All you will need to do from this point on is to thoroughly brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis, and come into our dental practice for teeth cleanings every six months, or as directed by our dentist. If you follow these instructions, there is no reason why your dental implants will not last you for a lifetime.
If you want to get dental implants in Baltimore, we hope that you will make an appointment to visit us at Spectrum Dental.
