Find out what factors make you an ideal candidate for this long-term tooth replacement treatment.

Losing a tooth many centuries ago may have spelled disaster for a smile, but with modern-day dentistry, tooth loss treatments have dental implantscome a long way. Our Silver Spring dentist, Dr. Susan Pearson, understands how stressful this issue can be and that’s why we offer amazing options like dental implants for replacing your missing teeth for life.

You Want a Restoration that Stays Put

Dentures rest on the gums, which can cause them to rub against gum tissue and cause irritation. Dentures also use suction to stay in place, but some patients find that dentures actually move around in their mouths, making it difficult to chew or speak. But implants actually fuse together with the jawbone so you won’t have to worry about implants moving around at all.

The Rest of Your Smile Isn’t Affected

If you get dental bridges we will need to file down natural teeth so that they can anchor the bridge in place. So instead of just one tooth being replaced three teeth will be affected to get a dental bridge. But when you choose to get dental implants in Silver Spring you won’t have to worry about altering the rest of your smile.

Enjoy Your Favorite Foods

If you have dentures and want to dine on a delicious steak you may bite down just to find that your dentures pop right out. This can be frustrating when all you want to do is enjoy meals but your dentures dictate what you can and can’t eat; however, with implants you won’t have this problem. Implants are a permanent part of your jawbone, so enjoy that beautiful steak or whatever your heart desires.

Clean Implants Like Real Teeth

When it comes to implants you won’t need to remove them to soak them overnight. Instead, implants can be cleaned just like natural teeth. There is no special toothbrush or toothpaste needed for your implants. Just keep using the same products you’ve been using for keeping your mouth clean. And don’t forget those six-month professional dental cleanings!

Dental implants have been saving countless smiles and they could be the ideal restorative dentistry you’ve been looking for in Silver Spring. If you want to find out more about getting dental implants then call Dr. Pearson today for a consultation.
