Dental implants in
Greenbelt

Dental implants are synthetic teeth roots. They are used to create foundations for replacement teeth. When teeth need to be replaced due to an accident or disease, give Greenbelt Dental Associates a call at (301) 241-8100 to learn if dental implants are right for you.

Who Can Have Dental Implants?

In general, any person at any age may need dental implants. However, it is important to Greenbelt Dental Associates that you:

  • Commit to good oral hygiene
  • Have enough bone to hold the implant in place
  • Are healthy enough to undergo oral surgery
  • Have healthy gums
  • Continue with regular dental visits

Certain people may need to be more closely examined to determine if they are good candidates for dental implants. This can occur if you:

  • Are a heavy smoker
  • Suffer from uncontrolled chronic disorders (like heart disease or diabetes)
  • Have had radiation therapy around the head or neck

Why Should I Get Dental Implants?

There are many reasons why dental implants may be right for you. When looking into tooth replacement, consider the following attributes of implants from Greenbelt Dental Associates.

  • Comfort: each implant is individually placed and therefore more comfortable than dentures or bridges
  • Strength: if taken care of properly, they can last you for your entire life
  • Fit: tends to be better than dentures or bridges
  • Appearance: they look and feel like your teeth
  • Speech: since they won’t slip out, you do not run the risk of your implants slurring your words or causing you to mumble  
  • Eating: they stay put so you can eat more easily
  • Oral Health: other teeth do not have to be altered to fit, like with a bridge, so your teeth are left intact
  • Flossing: you can floss around your dental implant and other teeth
  • Cleaner: unlike dentures, there is no need to disinfect or deal with adhesives to keep them in place

How Do I Get Dental Implant?

To begin the dental implant process, you should first make an appointment with a licensed dentist. The friendly staff at Greenbelt Dental Associates is ready to take your call and answer any questions you may have about the process. We will create a personal treatment plan for you based on your specific situation.

How Do I Take Care of My Dental Implants?

Dental implants should be treated just like your real teeth. It is important to brush, floss, rinse with ADA approved mouthwash, and schedule dental check-ups regularly. This will keep your implants and teeth looking great and working well.

Friendly and professional staff. I went for wisdom teeth extraction following an exam and x-rays and all in all I had a great efficient and pain-free experience. Couldn't have asked for better!

Great first impression, I am so scared of dentists but they made me feel welcome during the assessment and x-rays. Can't wait to go back and get my teeth fixed up!
