Are dental implants from St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville MD worth the investment? Absolutely!
A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.
The dental implant itself is a metal post that is surgically placed in the patient’s jaw. Usually made of titanium, it serves as a replacement root for the missing tooth. The post fuses with the bone to provide a stable foundation for what comes next.
When the implant has integrated securely with the bone (it can take up to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (crown) is then attached. Same day implants are available for some patients that fit the criteria.
The dental implants available at St. Mary’s Dental are extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of configurations. One dental implant can replace one missing tooth. A series of implants can replace more than one tooth or anchor a dental bridge. Denture wearers should know that tooth implants can also act as a sturdy base for partial or full dentures.
