Why choose dental implants to replace teeth?
When natural teeth are missing or damaged, dental implants are the next best thing. There are many benefits of dental implants but most importantly, they work and look just like real teeth. Dental implants are a secure and natural-looking option. Patients who have dental implants can enjoy their favorite foods and activities without worrying about slippage or losing a denture.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth. If you’re missing multiple teeth, dental implants can be used to support a complete or partial denture for a more stable restoration of an entire set of missing teeth.
For most patients, the dental implant procedure involves two parts:
Placement of the implant
The first step is the surgical placement of the dental implant. Dr. Rafat can perform this oral surgery from the comforts of our Cockeysville, MD dentist office. A dental implant actually replaces the root of the missing tooth. Through the process of osseointegration, the dental implant fuses to form a stable bond to the bone.
Dental Implant Restoration
The second part of the dental implant procedure involves implant restoration. The dentist will uncover the dental implant and attach an abutment. The replacement tooth or teeth will be attached to the abutment to restore beauty and function. For a single missing tooth, the dentist will use a dental crown. For multiple missing teeth, Dr. Rafat may use a dental bridge or denture.
Dental Implant FAQs
Are Dental Implants painful?
Dental implants are a surprisingly comfortable procedure. We offer a full range of sedation dentistry options to make sure that you are as relaxed and comfortable as possible throughout your treatment.
How much do Dental Implants cost?
Dental implants are a significant investment. To compare the cost of dental implants with alternative treatments, you must also weigh the long-term benefits of dental implants. A dental implant is less likely to need repairs and maintenance. In addition, dental implants can provide a
much higher quality of life.
I have more than one missing tooth, can I still use dental implants?
Yes, your dentist can use a dental implant to replace one missing tooth or to replace all of your missing teeth by supporting a denture or bridge. Dr. Rafat may need to place as few as two dental implants to secure a denture or bridge.
