Are you missing one or more teeth or facing the prospect of losing one or more teeth?

If you live in Bowie, MD you might consider dental implants as an option to restore your smile. If you are considering dental implants, dental implantsyou might think about contacting a qualified dentist such as Dr. Siamak Aalemansour with the Omni Dental Group.

A dental implant is a tooth replacement treatment in which your Bowie, MD dentist drills a hole into your jawbone and places a titanium implant into the bone tissue. Once the implant integrates into the jawbone, your Bowie, MD dentist will attach a prosthetic crown to the implant.

Your Bowie, MD dentist can perform the dental implant procedure for one or more teeth.

According to the Academy of Osseointegration, a professional dental organization dedicated to education and advancement of Osseointegration Dentistry, dental implants are not only a very practical tooth replacement solution, but data suggests dental implants are the longest-lasting tooth replacement procedure. In addition to improved ability to chew and speak more clearly, dental implants instantly offer more stability than standard, loose fitting dentures.

The AAO lists the following as major advantages of long term dental implants:

  • Dental implants take the pressure off remaining teeth by offering independent support and retention to crowns, bridgework and overdentures
  • Dental implants preserve natural tooth tissue by avoiding the need to cut down adjacent teeth for conventional bridgework
  • Dental implant preserve existing bone structure
  • Dental implants reduce bone deterioration
  • Dental implants reduce the need for subsequent restorative treatments for remaining/adjacent teeth

One thing to consider is that dental implants are done in more than one procedure over a period of time, often as lengthy as several months. This is because the bone tissue must completely heal before the crown can be attached to the implant. Finally, in a very small percentage of procedures, some complications can occur.

Your Bowie, MD dentist can help you make the right decision for you. If you are seeking a qualified dentist, consider contacting Omni Dental Group. For more information call 301-809-0029.
