We begin this post from St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville with a quote from classic literature: “Every tooth in a man’s head is more valuable than a diamond.”
When Miguel de Cervantes wrote that four hundred years ago, there was no widely accepted way to replace lost teeth. We are fortunate to live at a time where there is: dental implants.
A dental implant is a titanium post anchored to the jaw bone. One implant can support one artificial tooth, while several can support a bridge or a full dental arch.
Because the titanium post actually fuses with the bone, it becomes a rock-solid base for the replacement teeth it supports.
With a dental implant, you can talk, chew, and brush like normal. Eat that steak! Laugh out loud! Sing at the top of your lungs!
Dental implants from St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville not only improve your smile, they can improve your life! We have placed them in people throughout North Waldorf, East Huntingtown, and South Laplata, who also come to our practice for complete general and family dentistry.
