How can we help you?
Dental implants are a treatment option for most patients. Patients should have healthy gums and be committed to proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits. We recommend a consultation and evaluation of the health of a patient's teeth and gums prior to placement of implants.
If you have missing teeth and have decided on tooth replacement, congratulations. This choice will not only improve your dietary options and lift your confidence, but it also contributes to better oral health.
Your dentist in Pikesville, MD offers a variety of tooth replacement options that consider your budget, lifestyle, and gum health.
The first step is a consultation in our dental office. During this appointment, your dentist examines your mouth and talks to you about the various options, including any necessary pretreatments. We also encourage you to ask any questions and to share your health history.
Our tooth replacement options include:
- Dental implants
- Dentures and partials
- Dental bridges
Dental implants in Pikesville, MD are considered the gold standard in tooth replacement because this option replaces your tooth and its root, which means a stable and permanent solution to tooth loss. Dental implants may also help guard against bone loss in your jaw.
Dentures and partials have long-been a staple in tooth replacement, and we customize these prosthetics to fit the unique contours of your jaw—making certain your appliance looks beautiful and functions as it should.
A dental bridge is a line of replacement teeth or a single tooth that fills in your smile gap. Your bridge is secured to the teeth on either side of this gap with dental crowns.
For a more stable denture or bridge, ask your dentist about implant-supported prosthetics.

Dental implants offer a number of great advantages for those looking to replace a missing tooth:
Advantages of Dental Implants Include:
- Improved appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth
- Improved ability to chew: Because they are permanent, they function like natural teeth
- Improved comfort: They feel more like natural teeth than other tooth replacement options
- Easy to maintain: Dental implants are maintained with regular brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth
A dental implant is a metal post inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of a tooth. It is often the most ideal option for replacing teeth, as they provide the most natural tooth replacement option available. In addition to looking natural, dental implants are strong and have the same look and feel of your real teeth. They also are very safe, helping to prevent further tooth loss.
