Find out why getting dental implants in Rockville, MD could improve your oral implants

Millions of American adults face tooth loss. Whether you are just missing a single tooth or a whole row of teeth, our Rockville, MD dentists Dr. David Allick and Dr. Ghassan Jacklis have just the treatment option for you. Find out how dental implants could just end up saving your smile and giving you back the confidence you deserve.

When people lose teeth they often don’t realize what options are out there and so many of them turn to dentures. While dentures have been greatly improved over the years to resemble natural teeth, they certainly don’t function like real teeth, which can leave the wearer feeling disappointed. This is why it’s a good idea to consider dental implants before settling on a tooth replacement option.

Dental implants offer a variety of unique and wonderful benefits for your smile:

A Durable and Realistic Tooth

We think most people would agree that their goal is to get an artificial tooth that most closely functions and looks like a natural tooth. If this is the case, then you won’t find anything better than a dental implant. In fact, an implant is the next best thing to having a natural tooth. Plus, it can last several decades, which means that you could end up having this new tooth for the rest of your life.

A Healthy Jawbone

Your jawbone requires stimulation from tooth roots in order to continue producing new bone cells and to maintain its shape and density. When a person loses a tooth one complication is that you also begin to experience bone loss. The jawbone will recede and lose density, resulting in some pretty unpleasant facial changes (it can even cause premature aging). Of course, since implants are placed into the jawbone where they take over the role of tooth roots they will provide the stimulation your jawbone needs to prevent bone loss.

A Beautifully Aligned Smile

If one or more gaps are left untreated this means that your teeth will naturally begin to shift and move around to fill those gaps. As you can imagine, this can lead to a misaligned and even crooked smile. The last thing you want to deal with is orthodontic treatment on top of tooth loss. Getting dental implants ensures that your teeth won’t shift out of place.
