Discover Annapolis Implant Dentistry and learn more about Dental Implants
An alternative to dentures and fixed bridges, dental implants can be used to replace one tooth or even groups of missing teeth and full arches. Dental implants are permanent prosthetic teeth that become a natural part of the jaw and help promote healthy bone density in the absence of whole teeth. While there are many dentists who offer dental implants in Annapolis, no other local cosmetic dentist has the same approach, technology, and experience that Dr. Oneal F. Russell
uses to restore his patients beautiful, healthy smiles.
More Than Just a Cosmetic Procedure
While dental implants will greatly improve the appearance of your smile, they can also make for a healthier mouth. When you are missing teeth, you can begin to lose jawbone, which can affect your bite and impact surrounding healthy teeth. With the gap created by a missing tooth, your other teeth may begin to move, causing misalignments, jaw pain, and other issues. By filling in those spaces with dental implants, you can avoid these complications and promote better oral health. A dental implant consists of:
• A titanium rod – implanted into the jaw to act as a prosthetic tooth root and allow your restoration to be permanent and stable
• An abutment – attached to the top of the titanium rod and used to house your custom crown
• A porcelain or ceramic crown – created from beautiful and durable material to fit comfortably on the abutment and replace gaps in your smile
