Many believe you need a dental implant for each missing tooth. This can be costly and invasive if you have full or substantial tooth loss.
With implant-supported prosthetics like dentures and bridges, your Pikesville dentist can typically secure them with four to six dental implants. This makes dental implant technology accessible to more people!
A dental implant is a tooth replacement root made from sturdy titanium. Traditionally, your dentist implanted this root in your jaw, allowed time for healing and integration, and then topped it with a dental crown.
Today, we can often secure a bridge or denture with a handful of strategically placed implants. This means you don’t have to concern yourself with shifting dentures or ill-fitting bridges.
Your implant posts may also stimulate your jawbone, which combats shrinkage. When your jawbone shrinks due to tooth loss, it can change your profile and give a sunken appearance to the lower face.
At Naylors Court Dental, we want to give you a full smile that you can be proud to show to your family and friends.
