Dental Implants

Dental implants are advanced and durable tooth replacement solutions designed to mimic the natural structure and function of teeth. Consisting of titanium posts surgically embedded into the jawbone, dental implants serve as sturdy foundations for artificial teeth, such as crowns or bridges. As the jawbone naturally fuses with the implants over time, they become a permanent part of the oral structure, offering unparalleled stability and functionality.

At Evans and Vendelis DDS, PA, we use dental implants to restore natural-looking smiles and recommend them for the essential benefits they provide, such as improved chewing and speaking abilities and long-term oral health.

The Procedure for Dental Implants

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation, our dentist in Cockeysville, MD, will thoroughly examine you to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Our dentist will also take X-rays of your mouth and jaw to determine if you have enough bone structure to support implants. If there is not enough bone structure, bone grafting may be necessary before you can get implants.

Placing the Implant Posts

After you are approved for the procedure, our dentist will surgically place the implant posts into your jawbone. The posts are made from titanium, which fuses with the bone over time through osseointegration. This process can take several months to complete. During this time, a temporary crown or bridge may be placed over the implant site to protect your teeth and gums.

Attaching the Restoration

Once the post has fused with the bone, our dentist will place an abutment on top. This abutment will connect the post to your restoration. Then, an impression of your teeth and gums will be taken so that your custom restoration can be created. Once your restoration is ready, it will be attached to the abutment.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Improved Appearance

Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. You can regain your confidence by restoring your beautiful smile with dental implants. The implants look natural and blend in seamlessly with your other teeth.

Improved Oral Function

Missing teeth can cause problems with chewing and eating. This can affect your diet and nutrition. Dental implants allow you to eat your favorite foods again without worrying about your teeth shifting or falling out.

Improved Self-Esteem

Missing teeth can make you feel less confident. Dental implants in Cockeysville, MD, can help you feel better about yourself and your smile. They look and feel like natural teeth, so no one will be able to tell that you have them.

Improved Overall Health

Missing teeth can lead to other health problems down the road. For example, they can cause bone loss in your jaw, leading to other problems such as gum disease and tooth decay. Dental implants can help prevent these problems and improve your overall oral health.
