Missing teeth can make daily life challenging. It may be hard to speak clearly, smile with confidence, and incorporate healthy foods into your diet.

At Naylors Court Dental Partners, we offer tooth replacement options that restore function, confidence, and food choices, but dental implants are the best option if you’re looking for a permanent solution to missing teeth.

Dental implants are the only choice if you want to restore your missing tooth root and stimulate your jawbone to guard against deterioration; a deteriorating or shrinking jawbone is common after tooth loss.

Dental Implant Technology Explained

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that your Pikesville dentist implants in your jaw. These roots, made from durable titanium, integrate naturally with your bone across several months. When integration is complete, we top your new root with a replacement tooth.

If you wear dentures and think that dental implants are not a good option for you—imagining an implant for every lost tooth—we have technology that may work beautifully for you!

Implant-Supported Dentures in Pikesville, MD

With implant-supported dentures or bridges, we place four to six dental implants in your jaw to support your prosthetic. With this option, you never have to worry about your denture slipping when you speak. You don’t have to concern yourself with adhesives for support.

Qualifying for Dental Implants

Your dentist provides a thorough exam before dental implants. We want to make sure that you are a good candidate and do not require pretreatments like bone grafting (if your jawbone is not sufficient for placement).

If implants will work for you, we carefully plan your surgery.
