Dental Implants

Dental Implants in Germantown, MD

We don’t want any of our patients to have to deal with the inconvenience caused by missing teeth. Dental implants are an extremely popular solution to this problem. Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or to replace multiple teeth. They can also be used to anchor a dental bridge. Additionally, implants can be combined with dentures to securely fix them in place. Our River Stone dentists will evaluate your individual situation and make a recommendation based on your budget and your desires for your smile.

The Dental Implant Procedure

The dental implant is a small titanium screw that is made of a biocompatible material which is accepted by the body. It is surgically implanted into your jawbone where you are missing a tooth. Your amazing body will actually incorporate the screw into your bone over a healing period of several months. The implant then becomes a strong, artificial tooth root. When healing is complete, the implant will be topped off with a tooth restoration. This might be a single dental crown, a dental bridge or denture.

Candidates for Dental Implants

Most people who are in good health are eligible for dental implants. One essential requirement is sufficient bone density but our dentists can perform a bone graft if necessary to solve this problem. This will increase the healing time a bit but your smile will thank you for your patience!
