Are dental implants permanent?
Dental implants in Gaithersburg, MD, are the best solution for replacing one or more missing teeth because they are a permanent, long-term solution. An implant also restores your oral health since it replaces both your root and your tooth. Here's how it works:
The Implant Process
The dental implant itself is placed into your jawbone during a surgical procedure. Because an implant is made of titanium, it is biocompatible and naturally integrates with your bone during a healing period. This ensures there's a stable foundation for your new tooth, or porcelain crown.
Your crown is designed to match your lost tooth in both shape and shade. It provides all the same function that you had before, so you'll be eating, chewing, talking, and smiling with confidence again in no time.
Because dental implants are permanent, they offer great longevity. In fact, they can potentially last for many years and even a lifetime if you take good care of them with consistent brushing and flossing and regular checkups with Dr. Daftary or Dr. Zaner.
