How dental implants from your dentist in Lexington Park can restore your smiledental implants

A complete smile is both beautiful and functional. If you are missing teeth, chances are you’ve noticed how difficult it is to chew your food. You’ve probably also realized that people notice the large gaps in your smile. You may have even stopped smiling from embarrassment. It’s time to get your smile back! Dr. Denise Owens Mullinix at Bayside Dental in Lexington Park, MD wants to introduce you to dental implants, the state-of-art-way to complete your smile.

There are many advantages to completing your smile with dental implants instead of bridges, partials or dentures. Consider that dental implants are:

  • Completely stable, because they are firmly embedded in bone; they are a permanent part of your smile that won’t move around, unlike partials and dentures.
  • Naturally beautiful, because the implant crown is made of high-grade dental ceramic that reflects light, just like your natural teeth; dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
  • Easy maintenance, because you brush and floss them just like your natural teeth; dental implants will also never decay and they are resistant to stains.
  • Convenient, because you never have to remove them; dental implants become a permanent addition to your smile.

The dental implant screw is placed during a simple in-office procedure. Over time, your supporting bone fuses around the dental implant screw, securing it in place. The dental implant screw functions as the “root” of your missing tooth. After the area of the implant screw has healed, a beautiful new implant crown is placed on top of the implant screw. You now have a new tooth that is as good or even better as the tooth it is replacing!
