If you have lost one or more teeth, consulting with an experienced dentist regarding methods of tooth replacement is one of the best things you can do. At the office of Southern Maryland Family Dental Associates, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest levels of care to ensure optimal oral health. Whether you are considering bridges, dentures, or dental implants, we are confident we can help you find a treatment plan that suits your needs.
More than 36 million Americans do not have any teeth, and 120 million people in the U.S. are missing at least one tooth. These numbers are expected to grow in the next two decades. While tooth loss may be associated with some medical conditions, it’s primarily the result of extensive decay and gum disease, or as a result of an injury. Moreover, studies suggest that individuals with missing teeth are less likely to be socially active and more likely to suffer from low self-esteem.
We firmly believe that everyone deserves to enjoy the benefits of a healthy and complete smile. Our dental implants are a revolutionary approach to tooth replacement. Unlike treatment options of the past that addressed tooth loss above the gum lines, dental implants are small surgical posts that are inserted into the jawbone to perform in the same manner as the roots of your own teeth. As the site heals, the implant fuses with the bone to form a stable anchoring point for the placement of a cosmetically pleasing and functional crown, bridge, or overdenture.
Don’t let missing teeth take a toll on your quality of life when we’re here to help. If you are considering dental implants or any other restorative treatment for your smile, the experienced professionals at Southern Maryland Family Dental Associates are ready to assist you. For more information on any of our general, preventive, cosmetic, or restorative services and to schedule an appointment, call our office today.
