Dental Implants in Owings Mills are a Revolutionary Tooth Loss Solution
Having a full set of healthy and strong teeth is essential to many aspects of everyday life, including eating, speaking, and feeling self-confident. When one or more is lost, we strongly recommend visiting Dolfield Dental and working with our doctors towards a replacement as soon as possible.
Dental implants are our top recommended service because of their countless valuable benefits – seamless aesthetic value, long-term oral health benefits, incredible longevity, and more. Once they’re in place within your smile, they’ll be virtually indistinguishable when compared to your natural teeth! Contact us today in Owings Mills, MD to schedule a consultation with Dr. Milner and Dr. Horner, or if you have any questions.
Implant-Retained Crowns & Bridges
Once it’s been determined that a patient is a good candidate for dental implants, the procedure itself comes in multiple steps. First, the implants themselves will need to be surgically placed into the jawbone so that they can bond with the natural tissue and create an enduring foundation. Then, our team will design beautifully lifelike, custom-made restorations that attach over the implants, effectively completing your replenished smile.
There are several options available for the restorative process, and we’ll be happy to recommend one based on the number of lost teeth and/or placed implants that require coverage, as well as the patient’s own personal preferences. If we’re restoring a single tooth/implant, an all-ceramic dental crown is best so that we can protect the health of the surrounding natural teeth. Alternatively, by placing two implants on either side of a multi-tooth gap, we can replace the missing structure with a sturdy dental bridge.
If you’ve lost a significant number of teeth, dental implants can still be used to great effect. Our team will likely recommend a custom denture, which can attach over multiple implants at once for durable coverage that’s also more cost-effective than restoring each implant individually. These dentures come in two potential forms.
- Hybrid dentures are designed to permanently fix in place over implants. They will feel and look just like natural teeth, and only our doctors can remove them from the mouth.
- Overdentures are a good choice for patients who have become used to the convenient, removable nature of traditional dentures. The patient will be able to remove their prosthetic whenever they want while also still being able to reap the health and stability-based benefits of placed implants.
Mini Dental Implants
Traditional dental implants require that patients have a certain amount of healthy jawbone structure so that they can be placed successfully. If you’ve been turned away because you don’t meet these guidelines, consider investing in mini dental implants as a worthwhile alternative! This style of implant is extremely small and thin, and it can fit into very narrow spaces. The surgical process is also much quicker and less invasive, with virtually no recovery period required. Dr. Milner looks forward to helping you discover many more valuable benefits with this transformative tooth replacement solution.
All-on-4 / Teeth-in-a-Day
All-on-4 and Teeth-in-a-Day are amazing implant techniques that can be used to replace an entire arch of teeth in record time! Patients will have a few implants placed into the jaw (typically four) at strategic angles so that they can support a full prosthetic. Our team will design the high-quality denture so that it is an ideal fit for your unique mouth and smile, and it can typically be placed over the implants immediately – no months of waiting required.
