The best replacement isn’t dentures, it isn’t a dental bridge either. According to your dentist in Frederick, dental implants are the best replacement because they act just like natural tooth roots.
That’s right dental implants fuse to the bone. That means they are just as strong, if not stronger than your natural teeth.
A Patient Centered Dental Practice
Dr. Richard Rogers and Dr. Trevor Maples are patient centered providing the best treatments for customized solutions.
That means if you are a good candidate for dental implants it will be the best treatment as it can last for the rest of your life as long as you practice good oral hygiene.
On the other hand dentures, bridges and other non-permanent solutions won’t last forever and will have to be replaced eventually.
Frederick Dental Implants
Dental implants are posts or screws that Dr. Richard Rogers and Dr. Trevor Maples surgically implant in or on your jawbone.
After the area has healed, which could take three to 12 months, your Frederick implant dentist will place artificial teeth on top of the posts.
These new teeth look just like natural teeth and perform just as well. In fact, the only people who will know that you have implants are you and Yellow Springs Dental.
Dental Implant Care
Although your teeth are artificial your gums are still real. Furthermore your gums are still susceptible to gum disease if you don’t practice good oral hygiene.
Good oral hygiene means brushing twice and flossing once every day. It also requires regular dental checkups and professional cleanings.
Moreover, Yellow Springs Dental also recommends a healthy diet loaded with fruits, veggies and dairy products.
Dairy products contain calcium. Calcium builds strong bones and strong teeth. In addition to veggies and fruits include protein rich foods and grains for a well-balanced diet.
Is Everyone Suitable for Dental Implants?
While most people are well suited for the best replacement for missing teeth, some are not. Those who don’t do well with implants are smokers, heavy drinkers and people with certain systemic disease.
People with chronic gum disease and those who aren’t good with oral hygiene are in the high risk category for dental implant failure.
The only way to know for certain is to schedule a dental implant consultation with Yellow Springs Dental. Your Frederick implant dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums and chewing system before coming up with a treatment plan.
