Dental implants can greatly improve the quality of life for people who have missing teeth. Our Glen Burnie implant dentist believes they have countless benefits over other dental solutions such as traditional dentures. Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants are a permanent, fixed solution, meaning they don’t slip and slide like dentures do. They are also very natural looking, mimicking the appearance of your own natural teeth so you can have a beautiful, natural, and cohesive smile. Much like dental bridges and dentures, dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Specifically, dental implants are titanium rods that are surgically implanted in the jaw bone and act as anchors onto which a dental crown or even a fixed denture is placed. Because dental implants provide an artificial root for a dental restoration, they don’t require the use of healthy adjacent teeth to provide support. Another benefit of dental implants is that they help maintain the health and shape of the bone in the jaw area.
While dental implants have many advantages, they also have their disadvantages. One potential problem is that the dental implants and/or the caps can break. Another possible problem with dental implants is infection. An infected implant can sometimes be treated but many times it must be removed. Also, dental implants can be quite expensive compared to other solutions for missing teeth (such as fixed bridges). Dental implants are the best or only option for some people but are not appropriate for everyone. If you have missing teeth, we highly recommend that you make an appointment to be evaluated by our Glen Burnie implant dentist at Allan D. Schulman DDS & Associates to determine if you would be a good candidate for dental implants. Our expert implant dentist will provide you with alternative options if they aren’t for you.
