Missing teeth have long been replaced conventionally with fixed bridges or dentures. However, with advancements in dentistry, our Silver Spring dentists, Dr. Gregory Hysong and Dr. Lynda LePore, utilize dental implants to replace missing teeth for a more comfortable and permanent solution.
For our patients in Silver Spring, dental implants are so natural looking that you may forget you ever lost a tooth. We understand that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally. And with missing teeth, you may find yourself hiding your smile due to spaces and gaps.
Whether you are missing one or more teeth, we want to help you gain your smile back through dental implants in Silver Spring at Colesville Dentistry. Dr. Hysong and Dr. LePore work together to ensure your smile is fully restored, along with your confidence.
What are Dental Implants and Why Would I Need Them?
Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements used to substitute a missing tooth or teeth and helping to stop or prevent jawbone loss. They are alternatives for the root portion of your tooth and consist of a threaded titanium screw or post that is surgically placed into the jawbone.
Dental implants are used for tooth loss, which can occur for a number of reasons, including neglecting your teeth and gums with a poor diet and poor oral hygiene, naturally with age and also due to trauma. Athletes such as rugby players and boxers often lose their teeth due to trauma. The loss of teeth can have a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem due to the aesthetic implications as well as causing bite problems and difficulties eating.
Tooth loss may occur because of:
- Tooth decay
- Root canal failure
- Gum disease
- Trauma to the mouth
- Excessive wear and tear
- Congenital defects
Additionally, biting irregularities caused by tooth loss can have a negative effect on eating habits and this can lead to secondary health problems like malnutrition. Regardless of the nature of problems related to tooth loss, dental implants may provide a simple remedy with proven results that will bring confidence back into your smile.
Dental implants are not for everyone, but with proper consultation with our Silver Spring, MD dentists, Dr. Hysong and Dr. LePore, a proper decision and treatment plan can be created for your tooth loss. If you are ready to regain your confidence and enhance your smile, contact us today to see if dental implants are the best choice for your smile.
