Implant Restorations in Ocean City, MD
While many tooth replacement options exist, implants are increasingly popular because of the versatility they offer to patients. At Atlantic Dental Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we work closely with oral surgeons to make sure your implant procedure is successful.
How Do Implants Work?
Implants are titanium restorations that act as a root replacement. An implant is surgically placed in your bone at the site of your missing tooth. Once the post has healed and stabilized, a crown will be placed on top of the implant. Our dentists will match the shade, shape, and size of your implant to seamlessly complement your other teeth so your smile is both beautiful and functional.
Implants are available in single or multiple units. From the replacement of one tooth to an implant-supported dental bridge or implant-supported dentures, dental implants offer the greatest versatility and ease of any tooth replacement procedure.
What Are the Benefits of Implants?
Have you noticed that when people lose teeth, their faces can appear sunken? Along with replacing your missing tooth, implants stabilize your bone. When you lose teeth, you begin to lose the bone that supports those teeth. Dental implants provide an anchor to assist in the preservation of your remaining bone. This can maintain the structure of your jaw, support your soft tissue, and preserve the appearance of your face.
We partner with you to keep your teeth and gums healthy. A good home-care routine is necessary for the preservation of your dental implants. Regular hygiene appointments will also be necessary. These appointments allow us to keep an eye on the condition of your implant and make sure that everything is looking good.
