If you have missing teeth, you have probably been learning about different ways that they can be replaced. Today one of the most popular teeth replacement methods is to get dental implants. Dental implants are so popular with others because they look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. And, if well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic dental cleanings at our office, there is no reason why your dental implants will not last you for a lifetime. Dental implants consist of a lower titanium root portion and an upper porcelain crown portion. The porcelain crown is made to perfectly color-match your adjacent teeth so no one will ever be able to tell that you have a dental implant in your mouth. Once you get your dental implant, you will be able to eat and smile was total confidence. If you would like to learn more about Towson dental implants, simply contact us at our Finney Family Dental practice.
At our dental office our top-notch dentist is Dr. James P Finney. He specializes in cosmetic and restorative dentistry including providing patients with dental implants. When a patient comes to our office who is interested in getting dental implants, our dentist will first need to thoroughly examine their smile situation to make sure that they are a good candidate for dental implants. In order to get dental implants you must have a jawbone which is healthy and thick enough so that the dental implant root can firmly fuse to the jawbone, and so that the jawbone will fully heal for the procedure. Once our dentist determines that you are a good candidate for Towson dental implants, he will surgically insert a titanium dental implant root into your jawbone, for each tooth that is going to be replaced.
Once this occurs, there is a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone completely heals and the titanium root fuses to the jawbone. Once this healing period is completed, our dentist will then attach a porcelain crown to the top portion of the dental implant root. At this point you dental implant is complete and you will be able to once again smile and talk with total confidence, and eat in total comfort. If you would like to meet with our dentist regarding getting Towson dental implants, and to find out if you are a good candidate for this procedure, contact us today.
