WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?

The next best thing to your natural tooth.

The parts of a dental implant: post, abutment, and crown.

Are you missing one or more teeth? Dental implants may be your best solution to replace your missing teeth permanently.

A dental implant replaces your entire tooth from root to crown. It restores your smile’s function, allowing you to eat and speak normally. It also restores your smile’s beauty, seamlessly blending in with your natural teeth.

A dental implant restoration consists of:

  • A small titanium post, which is placed in your jawbone and acts as the tooth root.
  • An abutment, which attaches to the post and secures your crown restoration.
  • A crown, the visible part of your new tooth, which is custom designed by Dr. Silberman to blend with your smile.

Aside from permanently replacing your missing tooth, a dental implant also has many other benefits.

THE BENEFITS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS

Replacing your missing tooth with a dental implant goes beyond your physical appearance. Here are some of the many benefits you can expect with dental implants:

  • Look and feel natural: Dr. Silberman and his dental implant team will custom design your crown restoration to look and feel identical to a natural tooth. Trust us; no one will notice you have a dental implant.

  • Prevent bone loss: When you lose a tooth, the surrounding bone slowly begins to deteriorate. An implant post stops and prevents further bone loss by fusing with the bone and acting as a tooth root.

  • Chew, eat, and speak normally: Dental implants completely restore the function of your smile. You will be able to do all of life’s necessities without pain or embarrassment: eating, chewing, speaking, laughing, and kissing.

  • Secure dentures and bridges: Dental implants can also be used to secure your denture or bridge. With the support of a dental implant, you won’t have to worry about slipping or sliding dentures or slurring your words.

  • A conservative solution: Unlike other restorative options, dental implants only require modifications to your missing tooth area.

  • Long-lasting: Your dental implant in Waldorf, MD will be made of durable material that is not subject to decay. With proper oral hygiene, you can expect your dental restoration to last for decades.

DR. SILBERMAN'S TEAM APPROACH TO DENTAL IMPLANTS

We enlist the help of the best to give YOU the best.

Consultation

First, you will meet with Dr. Silberman to discuss your smile goals, ensure you are a candidate for dental implants, determine if this is your best option, and create a personalized treatment plan.

Implant Placement

To have the implant post placed, you will see one of our preferred periodontists or oral surgeons. Dr. Silberman will stay in close contact to make sure everyone clearly understands what needs to be done to meet your expectations. Dr. Silberman will be available to you throughout the entire treatment.

Design the Crown

Once your implant post has fused with the bone and healed, typically in four months, it will be time to design your crown restoration. Dr. Silberman will take measurements for your new tooth and send the specifications to his preferred lab, which will make your crown restoration.

Your Restored Smile

Placing your crown restoration is as simple as screwing in a light bulb. Before you know it, you will have a brand new tooth to restore your smile’s function and beauty. Your dental implant will look and feel just like your other teeth – only you and Dr. Silberman will know you have a dental implant.

“PROFESSIONAL AT ALL TIMES”

‘‘I feared dentists for years. But the fear is over. I have been going to this office for a couple of years and love everyone. From the front desk right down to Dr. Silberman, the atmosphere is VERY friendly and professional at all times. Keep up the great work.’’
