Dental Implant Restoration in Silver Spring MD
Dental implants have the ability to permanently replace one or multiple teeth, as long as you properly take care of your smile by brushing and flossing on a daily basis. Implants consist of titanium posts that act as the root of the tooth that are surgically placed in the jawbone and are topped with artificial restorations like crowns and bridges. After fully healing, the dental implants have the appearance and functionality of your natural teeth.
If you're a suitable candidate for dental implants, Dr. Beckles will refer you to an experienced and professional oral surgeon in the area who will be able to place the implant titanium posts. After the surgery, the posts need to heal for anywhere between three to six months. During the healing process, the post that's been surgically placed will provide a solid foundation so that the artificial tooth restoration can have a steady, safe area to work.
After the healing is completed, Dr. Beckles will begin your restoration. Depending on your dental needs, Dr. Beckles may suggest either a dental crown or a dental bridge. Dental implants can even anchor a full or partial set of dentures!
