When it comes to a great-looking smile, the first requirement is a full set of teeth. When you have an incomplete set, implants are an ideal solution. At Finney Family Dental, our priority is to make sure you feel good about how your teeth look, feel, and function.
Implants consist of two basic components. The tooth portion on top is similar to what you can get with a fixed bridge or partial removable dentures. The big difference is that an implant has that second component, which is a titanium post. In essence, it’s a new root. Your natural teeth have them, and thanks to our Towson cosmetic dentistry, so can your replacements. Roots are essential. They preserve your normal facial contours, and they prevent your gum and bone tissue from atrophying. Most important of all, a root grounds your tooth. It allows you to speak, laugh, smile, and chew (even crunchy foods) with total confidence. Our Towson cosmetic dentistry begins with the surgical placement of your post, the new root, in your jaw. Over the next few months, your jaw bone grows around the post, and ultimately fuses with it. You will then have impressions taken for the making of a tooth-colored crown to be cemented to the top of the post. Your completed implant allows you to forget that it’s not a real tooth. Floss between it and your other teeth as you would usually. Brush it without any concern. It is secure. It will never get a cavity and will never need root canal. And if you take good care of it, there is every reason to expect you can get a lifetime of use from it.
