Dental Implants: Change Your Life In 4 Steps

cosmetic dental and implants

Healthy teeth that work as nature intended are vital for a high quality of life and overall health. That’s what makes dental implants, like those available at St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville, such a major step forward in dentistry.

Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw. The implant is, in effect, a replacement for a missing tooth root. One implant may be used to support one replacement tooth, and several strategically-placed implants can support a full dental arch, aka dentures.

Here is the process:

1. Examination and Assessment
During your first visit, we assess your mouth and the condition of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. We look at the available options, and with your input, design a treatment plan.

2. Implant Placement
The next step is to insert the titanium implant into your jawbone. This is not as difficult or painful as it sounds. Most patients are surprised at how fast and easy the procedure is.

3. Integration
It take several months for the post to fully integrate with the jawbone. The process is known as osseointegration. Titanium is remarkably well-suited for this, and cases of rejection are rare.

4. Final Restoration
The last step is the restoration, or replacement teeth. For a single implant, a supporting piece called an abutment is fitted to the titanium post, and the crown, or tooth, goes on top of that. A dental arch usually has four connecting points, and there are several types of attachments.

Whether it’s a single implant or a full arch, dental implants from St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville can transform your life. Patients from North Waldorf, East Huntingtown, and South Laplata also come to us for sleep apnea treatment, and much more. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!
