The American Academy of Implant Dentistry estimates that approximately half of a million dental implants are installed by dentists each year to replace missing teeth. Implants can be used for single tooth replacements or to fill in multiple gaps across the smile. Although dental implants aren’t right for every patient, they could be just right for you! The team at Asuncion Dental Group in Frederick, MD can help you make that decision.

A Better Way
If you’ve assumed that dentures are your only option for cosmetically repairing your smile after tooth loss, you should know that there may be a better way. Dental implants offer numerous advantages over partial or complete dentures. Here are a few benefits to consider:

- Dentures are temporary and removable while implants are permanent and non-removable
- You do not have to remove a dental implant in order to clean it (just brush and floss along with your other teeth)
- Dental implants are more natural-looking and feel more secure, especially when eating

Are Dental Implants Right for Your Smile?
If you find out that you are a good candidate for dental implants, you should seriously consider this tooth replacement solution. Your Frederick, MD, dentist needs to find plenty of healthy bone tissue in the jaw where you want the tooth replaced. Implants need the support of a robust immune system to heal as quickly as possible, so you should be in stable general health.

Your First Dental Implantation Appointment
If you have some dental anxieties, relax knowing that there is nothing to be worried about when you go in for your first dental implantation appointment. The area of the mouth that your dentist will be working on will be numbed with a sedative so that you’ll have a comfortable experience. The appointment is relatively short, only requiring about a half an hour to one hour to have the implant positioned. You’ll return to the office a few months later to get impressions taken for a permanent crown.

The Preferred Tooth Replacement Option
When you have a tooth replaced, the best option is one that will give you the most comfort and versatility. A dental implant is the ideal choice in most cases. Call (301) 620-8882 today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Frederick Asuncion at Asuncion Dental Group in Frederick, MD.
