There’s an old saying, “I’m only going to do this once.”

You probably feel that way about your tooth restoration options in Silver Spring, MD – you want to close those gaps and flash a bright, dental implantsconfident smile, but you don’t want to have to revisit the situation in just a few years.

Fortunately, there’s another much more permanent option: dental implants. If you want that one restoration for a lifetime of smiles, consider contacting Susan Pearson, DDS in Silver Spring. Dr. Pearson and her staff can give you all the information you need and do the work you want to restore your smile forever.

Dental implants are one of the most popular cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures done today. There are many reasons why people in Silver Spring are opting to get dental implants. For one, they are the longest lasting restorative procedure available – implants can literally last you a lifetime.

Dental implants are considered the most natural restorations as well – they are truly the closest thing your Silver Spring dentist is going to come to giving you back your natural, real teeth. Unlike a dental bridge, which requires the dentist to file down or cut down existing teeth to attach a permanent prosthetic device, implants do not require further removal of existing tooth enamel or structure: implants actually become part of your oral bone structure.

In a dental implant procedure, a dental surgeon drills a hole into your jawbone and places the implant directly into the hole in the jawbone. The jawbone then heals around the implant, anchoring it firmly into place, via a process called Osseointegration. Once the jawbone heals and anchors the implant, the dentist then installs a titanium screw to which a prosthetic tooth or “crown” is attached. The implants and crowns are designed to your specific needs, and the result is a natural looking and functioning replacement tooth.

Unlike other restoration procedures, implants actually encourage, even cultivate new bone tissue growth. Dental implant procedures do take longer to complete and usually require more than one trip to the dentist, but with a 98 percent success rate, the time and money invested is worth it.
