Why Dental Implants Are Considered the Gold Standard

Missing teeth pose several challenges, including the ability to enjoy meals and to speak and laugh with confidence. Tooth loss also impacts your oral health.

At Gladnick Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer various tooth replacement options, but dental implants are considered the gold standard—for several reasons.

Dental Implants: The Gold Standard

Dental implants in Rockville, MD are the only tooth replacement option that restores your tooth and its valuable root. Root replacement may stimulate your jawbone to remain viable—as jawbones tend to shrink away without the stimulation of a tooth root.

Implant dentistry also prevents tooth migration—this means shifting teeth when spaces open up through tooth loss. This can throw off your bite and promote tooth wear and future decay.

Unlike other tooth replacement solutions, dental implants do not require added steps for care. You brush your teeth, floss, visit your dentist for exams and teeth cleanings—it is that simple. No adhesives. No relines. 

Dental implant posts are sturdy as well—two to six dental implants can support an entire prosthetic of restoring teeth on a low-profile denture. This means if you have full tooth loss that you do not need an implant for every missing tooth.

No other tooth replacement choice is as similar to a natural tooth.

These benefits make dental implants a permanent solution and a sound investment in the future of your oral health.

The Dental Implant Process

A dental implant is a small but strong tooth replacement root that your dentist implants in your jaw. This new root integrates with the bone over several months, creating a durable underpinning for your replacement tooth.

You’ll be able to enjoy meals, speak clearly, and feel good that you have made an excellent choice for the future of your oral health.

Missing teeth can cause a host of problems in your daily life!
