The allure of a beautiful smile has captivated people with Hollywood's movies. Whether it's Brad Pitt or Ann Hathaway, those million-dollar smiles are what we want. Family dentists, Dr. Jocelyn Ocampo and Dr. Jun Park, provide their Eldersburg, MD, patients with several procedures to give them the smile they want, but one of the best treatment options is probably the dental implant.

What's a dental implant?

A dental implant is a synthetic oral appliance that mimics a natural tooth to replace teeth. Your family dentist inserts the dental implant's post into the jawbone and allows it to fuse with the rest of your bone for several months. During this frame of time you're given a temporary crown and visit your dentist regularly to ensure all is going according to plan. After the implant has bonded, the dentist will insert a screw in the post and fasten a crown (the only visible part of the whole dental implant).

Why should I restore my teeth with a dental implant?

A dental implant is advantageous in so many ways and can help make life easier.

  • Dental implants restore a person's teeth cosmetically and structurally because it replaces missing teeth and reinforces the jawbone.
  • Implants are used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all your teeth, if need be.
  • They can last a lifetime and have a 95% success rate, which is hight compared to other procedures.
  • They are used in other procedures, or aid other oral appliances, like bridges.
  • Dental implants restore functions like speech and are comfortable in that they don't slip out while eating or speaking.
