What are dental implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts surgically placed in the jawbone to replace missing tooth roots. They serve as a stable foundation for various tooth replacement options. Over time, the bone fuses with the implant, creating a strong anchor for crowns, bridges, or dentures.

What is the All-on-X® Full Arch dental implant concept?

The All-on-X Full Arch technique is a game-changer for those with multiple missing teeth or complete tooth loss in an arch. This approach strategically places implants to support a fixed dental bridge. It restores a full arch of teeth with remarkable stability and aesthetics.

What are TeethExpress same-day implants?

TeethExpress same-day implants are a revolutionary concept that lets you leave Smile Design Studio of Bethesda with a new smile in just one day. 

Through meticulous planning and expertise, the team places the implants and attaches a temporary prosthetic. This immediate solution provides functionality and confidence while your permanent restoration is crafted.

What is an implant-supported overdenture?

An implant-supported overdenture is a removable denture that's secured onto dental implants. It offers greater stability and comfort compared to traditional dentures. 

It's an excellent choice for patients who want a more secure fit, enhanced chewing ability, and improved speech without the concern of slipping dentures.

Are dental implants suitable for everyone?

You may be a suitable candidate if you’ve lost teeth due to trauma, decay, or other reasons. Factors such as oral health, bone density, and medical history play a role in determining candidacy. Your provider assesses your situation and recommends a custom treatment plan.

What is the recovery process after getting dental implants?

Immediately following implant placement, you might experience some swelling or discomfort, which you can manage with prescribed medication. This initial discomfort subsides relatively quickly, and the implant works to integrate with your jawbone.

For most dental implants, the integration process takes several months. Once your implant is ready, your provider fits a dental crown on top of the implant. The crown matches your natural teeth to blend into your smile seamlessly. 

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are designed to be long-lasting and durable. With proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits, they can potentially last a lifetime. Choosing high-quality materials and following your dentist's recommendations play a significant role in their longevity.
