Central Maryland Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery: Replacing your missing teeth with dental implants
Surgeons at Central Maryland Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, P.A. provide several options for treating missing teeth. The most effective and durable option—as proven by majority of dentists—is dental implants.
These implants (titanium screws or cylinders) are used as replacement for the roots of missing teeth. They are anchored into the jawbone to hold up a single tooth crown, a multi-tooth bridge, or stabilize a removable partial or full denture.
Usually, an expert surgeon, such as the clinic’s Richard J. Nessif, DDS, would recommend the procedure for patients whose teeth are lost due to decay, root canal failure, gum disease, trauma to the mouth, excessive wear and tear, and inherited defects. The procedure, which is available at Central Maryland Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, is important to undergo so the patient can avoid bone loss in the jaw area caused by a missing tooth and prevent the increase of oral hygiene difficulty due to unbalanced teeth spacing.
Dental implants can serve as support for a patient’s tooth crown, replacing a single missing tooth. They can also support a dental bridge and serve as replacement for multiple missing teeth, helping decrease dental pains and ease chewing difficulties.
Dental implants are being used in the dental industry for more than 30 years, and according to studies, the process has a success rate of above 95 percent.
