If you’re tired of feeling self-conscious about having a smile with missing teeth, you don’t have to hide your smile anymore. Many people are missing or have damaged teeth, and it’s not only due to poor oral hygiene. But, no matter the reason for tooth loss, Dr. Leah Romay of Baltimore Dental Co, a respected dental practice in Glyndon, MD, can help you restore your confidence and the beauty of your smile with dental implants, the premier treatment preferred by thousands of dentists to replace missing teeth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Tooth restoration used to rely on dentures and bridges. Both were effective but did not replace teeth in a completely natural way, often needing to be removed for cleaning and secured in the mouth with adhesives. Dental implants actually take the place of your missing tooth from the root up. A titanium or zirconium implant screw is surgically embedded into the jawbone and replaces the tooth’s root. These materials naturally bond to bone. Your body can’t tell the difference. Then, an artificial tooth called a crown is affixed on the implant. The crown makes your implant resemble and function just like a natural tooth. Once you have healed from the implant surgery, your new implant will look and feel just like a natural tooth.
How Can Dental Implants Help Restore My Confidence?
Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants don’t need to be removed for maintenance and cleaning. Since they are a permanent addition to your mouth, you can still brush and floss normally. Implants fit so seamlessly into your mouth and lifestyle that usually no one will know you have an implant unless you tell them.
Implants can help restore your confidence in your oral health as well. When a permanent tooth is lost, the jawbone can actually begin to erode and recede. This process changes the shape of your mouth and causes harm to the structure of your mouth and stability of your bite. Dental implants replace the root from the missing tooth, preserving your jawbone’s structure, promoting continued growth of new bone and gum tissue and making sure your teeth remain securely in place. With dental implants you will not only feel confident in how your restored smile looks but that it is also promoting the ongoing health of the rest of your natural teeth.
