Patients enjoy coming to our dental practice because our entire staff is experienced and compassionate, yet we offer affordable dental care, for all.

At our dental practice, when patients get dentures, our dentist knows how to make sure that the dentures are attractive and comfortable for you to wear. Having well-fitting dentures will make it easy for you to chew, speak, and smile. When you first leave our dental practice with your new dentures, do not be surprised if they feel a bit awkward in your mouth. This is to be expected when you get new dentures, as it is a big adjustment. However, over a short period of time, you will begin to feel extremely comfortable with your new dentures, and find that you can eat comfortably with them, as well. In the beginning, you may want to eat softer foods, cut into smaller pieces. Our dentist will give you complete instructions on how to insert and remove your dentures, as well as how to care from them. Do not leave the dentures out of your mouth in the air for any extended period of time, as this can cause damage to the dentures. You also want to be particularly careful not to drop the dentures, as they can break. Should the dentures develop any type of problem, you should not attempt to fix it by yourself. Instead contact our office for an immediate appointment. Our Baltimore MD dentist may be able to fix the dentures right here in our office.

Dental implants in Baltimore
If you have missing teeth that you want to have replaced with dental implants, you should visit us at our dental practice, Spectrum Dental. Our dentists, Dr. Tamara Dulan and Dr. Kathrine Grant Collier, will be able to provide you with dental implants in Baltimore to beautifully and comfortably replace your missing teeth.
When a patient comes to our practice to get dental implants in Baltimore, our dentist may ask that you have a dental/radiographic exam and health history first. This may be necessary to help make sure that you are an excellent candidate for the dental implant procedure. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for dental implants, our dentist will surgically insert a titanium dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There will then be a healing time of several months during which time the jawbone will completely heal and the titanium dental implant root, or roots, will firmly fuse to the jawbone. Once our dentist determines that all healing has completed, you will be provided with a beautiful porcelain crown. The porcelain crown will be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant root, and your dental implant will be complete. At this point, you will be able to eat, speak, and smile and total confidence without ever needing to worry that the dental implants will slip or embarrass you in any way. The dental implants will be perfectly comfortable while you eat. In fact, the dental implants are so comfortable and natural looking that you will most likely soon forget that you even have them in your mouth. If well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and periodic dental treatments, they should last for a lifetime.
