BALTIMORE, MD, May 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- You're tired of it. You're sick of seeing a smile with missing teeth. As a child, it was exciting to lose a tooth; however, as an adult it can be downright scary. Whether you've lost teeth to tooth decay or an injury, you have fantastic options to help get that smile back to its lackluster best. In the past, the only option for fixing a missing tooth was removable dentures. However, now there is an even better, more permanent option for getting that ideal smile. If you've desired dental implants in Baltimore, turn to Dr. K. Michael Murphy & Associates, LLC-the trusted Baltimore dentist.
"We have a lot of patients come through our doors with missing teeth or complaining about their dentures, so we want to give them a better, more comfortable option for replacing their teeth," says Dr. K. Michael Murphy, who offers dental implants in Baltimore. "Patients have already been floored by the results."
Whether you're missing a single tooth or several, dental implants can help get you the smile you've always wanted. The staff at Dr. K. Michael Murphy & Associates would be happy to see if you're the best candidate for this treatment. That's why they offer free consultations. "We want our patients to be satisfied and happy with the treatment option they choose," says Dr. Dawn Merguerian, who is proud to offer dental implants in Baltimore. "During the free consultation, we can discuss more about dental implants with interested patients and see if this is the right course of action for them. We want to make sure we don't waste our patient's time or money."
One of the major pros of dental implants is that it has the same look as a natural tooth, and at Dr. K. Michael Murphy & Associates they match the tooth color to your other teeth, giving you a smile that is all yours. It's definitely worth the investment when you look in the mirror and can't tell the difference between your real teeth and the artificial one," says Dr. Alexandra T. Welzel, who provides Baltimore with dental implants.
The implant procedure is rather simple. A titanium cylinder, which serves the same purpose as a tooth's root, is placed into the jaw. The cylinder is left to heal over a couple months, so the jawbone and gums can grow around it, making it a permanent and strong fixture. Once the healing is complete, an artificial tooth is placed on the cylinder, giving you a beautiful, complete smile. "Our patients can't believe how great their smiles look. They walk out of the office already looking and feeling more confident," says Dr. Welzel. "We're so pleased that we're able to offer dental implants to our Baltimore patients."
However, not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants. "Those who smoke more than a pack a day, patients with gum disease, and those on chemotherapy or diagnosed with diabetes aren't the right patients for dental implants," says Dr. Murphy. "We also tell our patients that they must maintain optimal oral hygiene to ensure that these dental implants last a long time." That means, brushing twice a day and flossing each day.
