ELKRDIGE, MD, April 20, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- When a patient is missing a tooth, or multiple teeth, the last thing he or she wants to do is settle for gaps in their smile. To help eliminate gaps, Elkridge, MD dentists, Dr. Emilio Rivera and Dr. Michael Blank, are proud to announce the availability of dental implants at Integrative Dental Partners. Today, with advancements in dentistry, dental implants in Elkridge are frequently the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into a patient's jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. This cosmetic procedure is ideal for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or multiple teeth due to periodontal disease, injury, or other reasons. While dental implants in Elkridge at Integrative Dental Partners may be high-tech in nature, they are more tooth saving than traditional bridgework, since they do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.
"No one ever wants to lose a tooth, yet alone multiple teeth. Thankfully, with advancements in dentistry, I am able to offer my patients the restoration they need to smile once again. Dental implants help me to maintain my patients' smiles so that they no longer need to be ashamed to smile," said Dr. Dr. Emilio Rivera, a dentist in Elkridge, MD.
Rather than resting on the gum line like removable dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like fixed bridges, dental implants are long-term replacements that these Elkridge dentists surgically place in the jawbone. Dental implants are composed of titanium metal that "fuses" with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, and never slip or making embarrassing noises that advertise the fact that a patient has "false teeth." Additionally, dental implants do not decay like teeth that are used to anchor fixed bridges because they fuse to the jawbone, which helps to eliminate bone loss.
Whether a patient is young, middle-aged or an older adult, there is a dental implant solution available. By visiting the dentists in Elkridge at Integrative Dental Partners for an initial consultation, patients can better understand the best option available for restoring their smile. Like any dental restoration, dental implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a lifetime.
Patients are encouraged to visit Dr. Emilio Rivera and Dr. Michael Blank at Integrative Dental Partners in Elkridge for further consultation and to find out if dental implants are the best solution for restoring their smile. The availability of dental implants further proves the continual dedication and commitment Dr. Emilio Rivera and Dr. Michael Blank have toward making their patients smile for a lifetime.
