Dental Implants in Forest Glen, MD

Dental implants in Forest Glen, MD, preserve your jawbone and keep your facial structure looking normal, which means you look younger. Dentures, on the other hand, do not help the quality of the jawbone, so it can deteriorate, affecting how you look and the health of your jawbone.

How are dental implants better than dentures?

Implants look, feel and act like natural teeth. Dentures look artificial and do not feel like your real teeth. Dentures often slip and slide in the mouth. Implants are securely attached to the bone, so they stay in place and fit comfortably. Dentures need adhesives to stay in place, but implants never do.

With dental implants in Forest Glen, MD, the patient can chew all types of food, without restriction. With dentures, certain foods are off limits because they are too hard or too chewy.

Dentures need to be relined and replaced every few years. Implants can last a lifetime with proper care.

Can anyone get a dental implant?

If a patient can handle a standard tooth extraction, he can get dental implants in Forest Glen, MD. His gums must be healthy and he needs enough jawbone available to securely hold the implant. The person must also be willing to brush and floss regularly.

If a person smokes or has a chronic condition like diabetes or heart problems, the dentist at Spring Dental Associates can evaluate him on a case-by-case basis.

How do I take care of my dental implants?

Dental implants in Forest Glen, MD, get the same type of care that normal teeth do. The patient should rinse out his mouth each day using an antibacterial mouthwash. The teeth need to be brushed regularly, flossed once a day, and the patient needs to go in for twice-a-year checkups.

Does it hurt to get dental implants?

There is very little pain and discomfort that comes with dental implants. The dentist at Spring Dental Associates uses a local anesthesia. For most people, it is less painful that getting a tooth removed. If there is pain after the procedure, an over-the-counter pain medication is usually all that is needed.
