Tooth Replacement in Towson, MD
For many years patients suffering from tooth loss had to be satisfied with dentures or bridges. This is no longer the case. Modern dentistry now offers dental implants, a permanent solution to tooth loss that is truly the next best thing to natural teeth.
How do Implants Work?
First, Dr. Kim will talk with you about your tooth replacement desires, dental history, and medical history. Next, he will conduct a comprehensive examination and take radiographic images using our 3D-CBCT scanner.
This is a three-dimensional cone beam CT scanner that rotates around your head, producing up to 600 images for complete imaging of your mouth and jaw. 3D-CBCT is the new gold standard for presurgical dental implant site imaging. Our scanner uses about 95% less radiation than conventional CT machines found in hospitals.
Dental implants are surgically secured into the bone of your jaw. Next is a period of osseointegration, where the titanium implants fuse with your bone. Osseointegration is what makes dental implants so secure and stable. Finally, Dr. Kim will add custom crowns to the tops of your implants, providing you with amazing new teeth.
While most patients can receive dental implants, not everyone is a good candidate. However, if dental implants are right for you, you can enjoy new, stable teeth that allow you to eat whatever you wish without fear of slippage.
