Dental Implants An Overview

Baltimore, MD native Dr. Welinsky will provide advanced treatment options for replacing missing teeth including dental implants for a permanent, secure and natural looking smile. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, a dental bridge or to secure a denture for the upper or lower arch of teeth.

What is a Dental Implant?

dental implants towson mdA dental implant is a titanium post designed to fuse to the jaw bone – acting as the root of a missing tooth. This unique factor provides key benefits for your long-term oral health and the appearance of your lower face, preventing dramatic jaw bone recession which can occur after tooth loss.

The implant is used to support a dental crown (single missing tooth), bridge (several missing teeth) or a denture (replace all missing teeth).

  • Prevents bone loss and gum recession as it will fuse to your jaw bone

Dental Implants What to Expect

Several visits are typically necessary to complete the dental implant procedure. At your first visit, Dr. Welinsky will complete a thorough evaluation of your dental health to determine if dental implants are the correct solution for you. You should be in overall good health and have enough healthy jaw bone to support the implanted post.

Dr. Welinsky will coordinate the surgical phase of the dental implant procedure with a local oral surgeon and follow up post surgery to ensure a positive result. The placement of the dental implant is a simple procedure performed in the oral surgeon’s office under local anesthesia. It typically takes three to six months for the implant to heal and fully integrate with the jawbone.

After the healing process is complete, Dr. Welinsky will attach a custom dental crown, bridge or denture to permanently restore beauty and function to your smile. Your restoration will look and function the same as your natural teeth. You can brush and floss normally, and even go back to regular eating habits with restored biting and chewing ability.
