TOWSON, MD, January 18, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Are you constantly worrying about that empty space where your natural tooth used to be? It is something to worry about when you don't know the next step to take. If you're short a tooth or two, there is a permanent solution for your dental problem-it's a dental implant. Towson residents can get a dental implant consultation at Dr. Joseph Dickens's Towson family dentistry.
"More and more people are requesting a consultation for dental implants. It's no surprise though; dental implants are permanently placed into the jawbone, securing the implant structure. Patients won't need to remove it for maintenance. It acts just like the natural teeth, maintaining it is as simple as following a strict oral hygiene regimen and eating healthy," says Dr. Dickens, Towson, MD dentist.
How does an implant stay put in the jawbone? It is possible with the process of osseointegration. Typically, implants are made of titanium. Since dental implants are made of biocompatible material, the underlying bone cells and gum tissue can attach to the implant, stabilizing it. After the area heals, an abutment is attached to the implant, leaving only the synthetic tooth to complete the implant process.
Once you complete a dental implant procedure, you will notice the many benefits of having a permanent tooth replacement. You can eat and speak with ease, not worrying about a dental device slipping in your mouth. Also, your dental implant's synthetic cap won't look obvious. Advanced dental technology and materials make it quite easy for a lab technician to create a synthetic tooth that mimics the look and feel of your natural teeth.
As Dr. Dickens stated earlier, you need to treat your dental implant with care, just like your natural teeth. All you need to do is brush your teeth twice a day (or after every meal) and floss daily.
To make sure you aren't developing decay or gum issues, you need to visit your dentist for formal checkups.
