Tooth Replacement in Baltimore & Randallstown MD
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.
Evaluation for Dental Implants
If like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by either Dr. Evans or by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon referred by our practice. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.
Dental Implants Presentation
To provide you with a better understanding of dental implants, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to dental implants are discussed.
Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are metal anchors, which act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Small posts are then attached to the implant, which protrudes through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.
For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums, gradually bonding with the jawbone. You should be able to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet during this time. At the same time, your restorative dentist designs the final bridgework or denture, which will ultimately improve both function and aesthetics.
After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. The surgeon will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar. We can then start making your new teeth. An impression must be taken. Then posts or attachments can be connected to the implants. The replacement teeth are then made over the posts or attachments. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.
Missing Teeth Options Baltimore MD
When teeth are missing, it puts added stress on the surrounding teeth and oral structures, often causing bite problems and potentially compromising oral health in a number of ways. The jaw bone also begins to deteriorate when teeth are missing. Replacing missing teeth with traditional dental bridges or dentures can help with some of these problems, but they do not promote bone retention.

Dental implants can be used to replace individual teeth or to stabilize and support a dental bridge or dentures.

What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is composed of three parts, which together replace the root and visible crown of the tooth. The titanium implant is surgically placed in the jaw bone and begins to naturally fuse with the bone. An abutment is then attached to the titanium implant, providing a surface at the gum line onto which Dr. Evans will attach your new crown. The crown is customized to match your surrounding teeth in size and color, restoring your beautiful smile.
Replacing Multiple Teeth
Dr. Evans is certified to practice the HYBRIDGE® technique, which enables him to replace multiple teeth using resin and chrome dental appliances supported by dental implants. This advanced procedure offers beautiful results while reducing the cost and time involved in replacing multiple missing teeth individually.
