If you want to restore your smile with dental implants, the first step is to schedule a consultation at our practice in Havre de Grace. During this meeting, Dr. Grubb will examine the health of your gums and jawbone. If he determines they’re not strong enough to support implants, don’t worry. We offer supplemental procedures such as bone grafting and soft tissue augmentation to get you ready for implant placement. Read more about our dental implant treatment process.
No, not until they’re fully grown. Although kids and teens may lose teeth through sports or in other accidents, dental implants are too dangerous to place on teens whose jawbones are still growing.
No, it’s strongly recommended to wait until you’ve delivered before pursuing dental implant surgery. Any complications that arise in surgery may disrupt the pregnancy, so unless it’s an emergency, it’s best to hold off on dental implants until after.
If you’ve worn dentures for a long time, then your jawbone has likely suffered from deterioration. For patients in this situation who lack the jaw strength for implant placement, Dr. Milsap can perform a bone graft to help you qualify for the procedure. Once your implant is in place, it will stimulate healthy bone growth to strengthen your jaw.
Dental implants can be used to restore any amount of missing teeth. If you’re missing multiple teeth, Dr. Grubb can secure a customized dental bridge or a set of partial dentures with one or more implants. If you’re missing a full arch or even both arches, he can use multiple implants to anchor a brand-new set of natural-looking teeth.
If you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants can restore your smile. In addition to enhancing your appearance, dental implants will keep your jawbone healthy and recover the functionality of your missing teeth. No other tooth replacement treatment can match the durability and effectiveness of dental implants. So what are you waiting for? Contact us today and start your journey to a new smile.
