Have you ever lost one tooth or more? Do you want to get your perfect smile back? This is now possible using dental implants. Contact your Bowie, MD, dentists at Omni Dental Group to know more about this procedure.

What are dental implants?

The dental implant is a minor outpatient surgery. During this procedure, your Bowie, MD, dentists will replace the tooth roots with metal, screw-like posts. Also, they will replace the missing tooth with an artificial one that resembles the original tooth in its function and appearance. That will improve your speech, comfort, self-confidence, and overall oral health.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

After the posts, which will substitute the roots of your missing teeth, are placed in your jawbone, the titanium in them will fuse with your jaw bone. That will help in preventing the implants from slipping, making noise, or causing any bone damage.

Also, the material can’t decay, which is considered an added benefit. Success rates of dental implants vary, depending on the place of the original tooth. In general, if proper brushing and flossing are maintained, the success rates may reach up to 98%.

What are the risks of dental implants?

Like any other surgery, dental implants may pose some risks. But most of the time, they are not dangerous and can be treated easily.

The risks may include any of the following:

  • Infection at the implant site
  • Damage to the surrounding tissues
  • Pain or tingling in the oral cavity caused by nerve damage
  • Sinus problems, if the implants placed in the upper jaw near the sinus cavities

If you think that dental implants are the solution for your teeth problems, don’t hesitate to visit your Bowie, MD, dentists at Omni Dental Group to figure out if you are a good candidate for this medical intervention. Call (301) 809-0029 and make your appointment today.
