Dental implant placement and restoration at Greenway Dental Group
Dental implants are a desirable, popular, and effective way to replace missing teeth. Greenway Dental Group of Greenbelt, Maryland, offers dental implant placement and restoration services to help our patients achieve healthy, beautiful smiles. Drs. Alex Shklyar, Shawn Na, and Madueke Ekoh work with patients to help them determine if dental implants are right for their smile with an initial evaluation and exam.
Understanding dental implants and how they work
Dental implants are small titanium posts placed in the jawbone where teeth are missing. The implants fuse with the bone and provide a strong foundation for artificial teeth, called crowns. Dental implants can be restored over the abutment with a dental bridge or a full denture. This type of repair is known as implant-retained dentures and provides a more stable and solid denture to ensure patients can enjoy all their favorite foods without worrying about their denture slipping or falling out! Because dental implants are so versatile, we often recommend them to patients seeking a fixed restoration to replace missing teeth.
Do dental implants look natural?
Crowns and other dental restorations used over the dental implant can be made to match your natural tooth color and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. In addition to cosmetic benefits, dental implants also offer functional advantages. They can improve your ability to chew and speak and prevent your other teeth from shifting out of place. They also maintain bone, which is incredibly important in maintaining a youthful face shape. Patients who wear conventional dentures for many years will experience significant bone loss that causes the mouth to look sunken in. Dental implants maintain bone and help you keep your youthful face shape longer!
