What your dentists in Hanover, Maryland want you to implants

You’ve probably seen the TV commercials about implants and now you want to know more. How do implants work? What makes them better than bridges, partials or dentures? The truth is dental implants are the most natural-looking, best functioning method of tooth replacement available. Drs. Michael and Shora Farivari at Ridgeview Dental Care want to share the facts about dental implants. They proudly serve residents of Hanover, Severn, and Ft. Meade, Maryland and they can help your smile too.

Dental implants come in several parts, beginning with the dental implant screw, which will function as the “root” of your tooth. The screw is inserted during a simple procedure done in the office. It is made of titanium, a biocompatible material that allows your body to create bone to fuse with the implant screw, embedding it in your jaw.

After the area has healed, a small part known as the abutment is placed over the screw. The abutment helps to connect the last part of the implant, known as the implant crown, to the implant screw. The implant crown is made of high-grade dental ceramic that looks just like the natural crown of a tooth. After your dental implant procedure is completed, your new dental implant will function exactly like a natural tooth.

Dental implants are the most successful surgical implant, with success rates in excess of 95 percent. People prefer dental implants over bridges, partials or dentures because dental implants are:

  • Stable and won’t move around when you speak or eat
  • Natural-looking and virtually indistinguishable from your teeth
  • Easy to maintain because you brush and floss them along with your natural teeth

Dental implants are a great way to replace a single or multiple missing teeth. They can also provide a supportive framework for a dental appliance, which is snapped in place over the implants. You can restore the beauty and full function of your smile, thanks to dental implants. To find out more about how dental implants work and how they can renew your smile call Drs.
