Our goal is to simplify the dental implant process by providing all phases of dental implant therapy without the need for a referral to see another doctor at a different location. We recommend dental implants to restore missing and broken teeth. Tooth replacement solutions have evolved to meet the dental needs of the population. As of now, dental implants have served as the standard of care for tooth replacement in the dental profession for more than two decades. Research shows that patients who received dental implants during the 1980′s and 1990′s report that their implants continue to perform at an optimal level. This research demonstrates that dental implants provide a long-term solution for replacing missing or broken teeth. One big advantage of dental implants, is that adjacent teeth do not need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place. IV Sedation Dentistry is available for this procedure in Rockville, Maryland.
Dental Implant FAQ
How Long Does it Take to replace a tooth with a Dental Implant?
A tooth can be replaced with a dental implant on the same day as a tooth extraction. The New implant can be viewed as a new root. It takes 8-11 weeks for bone to grow around and attach to the new implant. After bone has grown and attached, implant integration, a Zirconia Crown can be placed on top of the dental implant. During the healing time, a temporary tooth can be provided for cosmetic reasons if necessary.
Dental implants consist of three parts: a root replacement form, a crown that is shaped and shaded to match your natural teeth. As well as an abutment that connects the new root or dental implant to the crown portion of the newly implanted tooth. Each dental implant functions as your tooth and tooth root would function. They form a strong foundation for chewing and of course your beautiful smile.
Replacing a missing tooth or teeth is a two part procedure. At Natural Dentist Associates we do both parts of the procedure. Our dental team places the implant root and then restores it with a crown. It has been noted that many patients who opt for dentures are dissatisfied and wish they had opted for dental implants.
