Why Dental Implants in Laurel, MD?
Dental implants offer a carefree, permanent tooth replacement. Unlike dentures, which are adhered to your gums with glues or pastes, dental implants are integrated with your jaw bone. You never have to worry about shifting teeth or diet restrictions and there are no special cleaning regimens.
Dental implants consist of a titanium post, an abutment, and a dental crown. The simple components of this tooth replacement option replicate your missing tooth. The post acts much like your tooth root, providing stability and stimulating the bone. The abutment connects the post and the crown, which makes the crown appear as if it is growing from the gum line. In fact, the crown is the only visible portion of the tooth replacement and is matched in shape and color to the surrounding teeth. No one will be able to detect the difference.
Caring for dental implants is easy and convenient. Implants require only the same proper brushing and flossing regimen as that of your natural teeth. Regular professional cleanings and checkups are also required to maintain the health of an implant tooth replacement.
