Dental ImplantsDental implants are a beautiful and permanent way to restore your smile without the hassle of daily maintenance or the worry of your teeth shifting or falling out during a conversation. Knowing the ins and outs of dental implants is crucial in determining if this is the best tooth replacement option for you. Find out more about dental implants and how they can help you with Dr. Patrick Gallagher at Gallagher and Eden Family Dentistry in Westminster, MD.

How does a dental implant work? 
Your dentist uses an oral surgery to place your dental implants into the jawbone beneath your missing tooth or teeth to replace them below the gum line. Throughout the healing process, the bone grows around the implant, locking it naturally into place to provide a solid foundation for your implant’s prosthetic, which replaces the missing tooth itself.

Are dental implants safe? 
Dental implants have been in use for over 50 years, are FDA-approved, and are a tried-and-true gold standard for teeth replacement. They are considered safe to use and have a low risk of complications or rejection. Dentists recommend dental implants for patients who are in good dental and medical health and can undergo the appropriate procedures without complications.

Can a dental implant help my smile? 
Dental implants can help most people with at least one missing tooth. A good candidate for implants has healthy gums and enough bone underneath the missing tooth to support the implants’ fixtures. After receiving dental implants, patients should have a great at-home oral care routine which consists of brushing at least twice daily and flossing between each tooth at least once. These two at-home steps paired with a strong commitment to biannual dental examinations will keep your teeth and implants healthy and clean for years to come.
