Dental Implant FAQs

Are you missing one or more teeth? Ask us about dental implant treatment in our Rosedale, MD dental office. Implants are dental restorations that are surgically inserted in missing tooth gaps. They may be used to replace a single missing tooth or support a bridge or denture. Because implants are made of titanium, they provide strength and durability. If you have lost or missing teeth, contact Rosedale Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. We will help you find the right implant restoration to renew your smile.

What are the benefits of dental implant treatment?

Dental implants can help improve the appearance and even the health of the overall smile. We will often recommend implant-secured bridges and dentures for patients with rows or arches of missing teeth. This is because implants improve the longevity of restorations. With removable bridges and dentures, patients often have dietary restrictions because they cannot fully bite or chew comfortably. Dental implants provide proper support to the smile and feel just like natural teeth.

Am I a candidate for dental implant treatment?

The best candidates for implant treatment are in good oral health. For some patients, we will recommend tooth extractions or bone grafting treatment. Patients with missing teeth due to tooth decay may need problem teeth removed. Additionally, bone grafting treatments are helpful to add bone tissue in areas of the mouth where it is needed. Dental implants require sufficient jaw bone tissue so they can become a part of the smile.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are permanent. During the implant healing process, the metal posts fuse with the jaw bone. This creates a sturdy foundation for dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures.
