What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the treatment of choice for missing or failing teeth. Strong, durable, and stable dental implants replace tooth roots, halting and reversing jawbone deterioration. They also restore virtually all original bite strength, allowing you to eat even tough meats and sticky candy.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants can improve your life by restoring the function and appearance of your teeth. Here are several benefits of dental implants:

  • Preserve Your Jawbone As mentioned above, dental implants prevent the jawbone around a missing tooth from being reabsorbed. Over time, this resorption can lead to a "sunken look" that greatly ages a patient's face.
  • Eat Whatever You Want Implants have far fewer food restrictions than traditional crowns, bridges, and partial dentures. You can eat what you like with dental implants.
  • Keep Teeth in Their Original Positions If you have missing teeth, you may find that your remaining teeth shift positions in your mouth. This problem can lead to misaligned teeth, bite issues, and more space between teeth.
  • Aesthetic Improvement When you have dental implants, you will no longer have to cover your mouth when you smile. Implants can bring about a positive change in your self-image and how you interact with others.

Services We Provide

We offer many dental implants and implant-supported restorations that can improve your smile and oral health.

Single Tooth Dental Implants

Single Dental Implants in Germantown

Single-tooth dental implants are the industry standard for replacing missing teeth. A single-tooth dental implant is a titanium post that the dentist screws into your jaw. Over a few months, the post will bond with your jaw and provide a functional root replacement. An abutment and dental crown top the post and create a lifelike, fully functional tooth.

Dental Implant Supported Bridges in Germantown

Implant-supported bridges are useful for people with more than one adjacent missing tooth. Rather than attaching the implant to two crowns, the bridge connects to two strong dental implants.

If you have many missing or compromised teeth, implant-supported dentures may be your best choice. You can choose from fixed or removable dentures. Implant-supported dentures do not cause rocking and fit problems like traditional dentures.

Full Arch with Only Four Implants

All-on-4 in Germantown, MD

These dentures are unique because the dentist can install them on the same day as the tooth extractions. Immediate-load implants secure the full denture arch.

Mini Dental implants in Germantown

A mini dental implant or MDI is a viable solution for patients who do not want to undergo the extended process of getting traditional implants. Mini dental implants use significantly smaller posts than single-tooth implants, making the surgery less invasive.

Dental Implant Placement in Germantown

Our specialized software helps us create custom surgical guides for each implant procedure. This process allows us to place implants precisely, avoiding most complications.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Despite stubborn rumors, nearly anyone can become a candidate for dental implants. If you have oral health problems such as gum disease or tooth decay, we must correct those before placing implants. It would be best to tightly control underlying medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure. If you have severe jawbone loss, you might need a bone graft. Within these parameters, there is no reason to avoid dental implants.

Why Choose Rosewood Dental

Our dentists and staff have extensive training in dental implant placement. Our practice uses the newest techniques and equipment to help you achieve your dream of a beautiful, functional smile. We maintain a friendly, comfortable atmosphere in our modern office.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

How long does it take to get implants?

The entire process takes about 6 months from start to finish. It may take longer if you have special circumstances. After placing the implants, the gum and jaw need time to heal and bond with the post. After a few months, the dentist places the abutment and crown. Mini dental implants and full arches anchored by four implants have a shorter process.

How long do dental implants last?

The posts themselves could last a lifetime with proper care. The crown may last about 7 years.

Is the process painful?

You will receive appropriate anesthesia. Some patients also choose sedation. The healing process may involve some temporary swelling, bruising, and discomfort.

How do I care for my dental implants?

You should care for them exactly how you would care for healthy natural teeth. Be sure to brush and floss as recommended.
