We offer dental implants in Ocean Pines, Maryland, for those who wish to replace their missing teeth with a fixed and permanent product.
Dental implants are replacements for your teeth and their roots. They have the ability to improve many characteristics of you and your mouth, including your appearance, speech, comfort, self-esteem, and oral health. Dental implants are also convenient, durable options that make eating easier.
The process of installing the implants does, however, take some time to complete. It will first begin with the oral surgeon inserting a small titanium post into the bone socket of your missing tooth. Then, your bone will need to heal around the post to secure it in place, which could take anywhere from six to twelve weeks. When the bone has healed, your dentist will attach a small connector post that will secure the tooth. Your dentist will then make impressions of your tooth and will send them to a dental lab to be made for you. Once the tooth is created and sent back to Pedar B. Didriksen DDS Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, your dentist will finish the implant process by placing it onto the connector post.
