WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
A dental implant is a replacement tooth option that has three main parts:
A bio-compatible titanium post that fuses to the jaw bone
Connects to the implant, at the gum line and secures the dental crown or overdenture
Prosthetic tooth (crown, bridge or denture)
This can be a dental crown for a single missing tooth or a dental bridge or denture for multiple missing teeth
DENTAL IMPLANTS RESTORE FUNCTION
Dental implants are the ideal treatment option for people who want a permanent, natural looking solution for missing or broken teeth. Although most dentists offer multiple treatment options for replacing teeth that are no longer functional, none can replicate the quality, effectiveness, and durability of natural teeth like dental implants.
DENTAL IMPLANT OPTIONS
Single Tooth Replacement
If you are missing a single tooth, Owings Mills dentist Dr. Nova can place one dental implant with a durable and esthetic crown.
Multiple Teeth Replacement
If you are missing two or more teeth, Dr. Nova can place several dental implants to support a dental bridge or denture.
If you are missing all of your teeth, dental implants can be used to support a full bridge or overdenture.
