SOUTH CAPITOL SMILE CENTER, WASHINGTON DC
If you are missing teeth, or wear ill-fitting, loose dentures, Dr. Samaddar wants to improve your quality of life, possibly with dental implants.
Dental implants are the prosthetics that most closely mimics nature’s design by serving as substitute tooth roots. After the implant is placed in the jaw, bone integrates with it to create a solid foundation for a crown, bridge or denture that can last a lifetime. Implants promote bone retention and eliminate slipping, loose, wobbly dentures, all with the look, feel, and function of natural teeth.
Q: What are my options to replace a missing tooth?
A: By replacing missing teeth either with a bridge or implant, you will alleviate the problems associated with missing a tooth and give your smile back its beautiful, full and functional appearance. A bridge is one solution for replacing a tooth. By using neighboring teeth as the supportive structure, Dr. Samaddar places a porcelain restoration into the vacant space, restoring the functionality and look of your smile. A dental implant is also an excellent solution. Dental implants involve the placement of a titanium post directly into the jawbone. Once the post has bonded to the bone, it can act as a new, solid support for a natural looking porcelain restoration. Implants can replace a single tooth, or an entire set of teeth, offering more function and permanence than traditional dentures.
