Dental Implant Success Stories

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant consists of three main parts:

  • Implant Post: Typically crafted from high quality titanium, these small posts are inserted into the jawbone to replace the roots of a missing tooth, providing a strong foundation for the visible portion of your replacement tooth or teeth.
  • Abutment: This is a small connector piece that securely fastens the custom-made restoration to the top of the implant post or posts.
  • Custom restoration: Depending on the extent of your tooth loss, we’ll craft a custom-made crown, bridge, partial, or full denture and secure it in place via the abutment to complete the visible portion of your smile.

Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that restores missing teeth both above and below the gumline, effectively rebuilding missing teeth from the roots up. The end result is a smile that looks, feels, and functions just like natural, as if tooth loss had never occurred!

The Dental Implant Process

We provide every step of the dental implant process in the comfort of our Greenbelt or Millersville, MD practice – implant surgery, abutment attachment, temporary restorations, and final restoration. Many dental offices refer patients to an outside specialist to perform implant placement, often adding time and expense to the process. At McCarl Dental Group, we bring convenience and cost savings to you. Our dentists have special training and experience to complete the entire procedure themselves, helping our patients rebuild their smiles in the most convenient way possible.

Who Dental Implants Can Help

Dental implants are extremely versatile and able to meet the needs of patients with varying degrees of tooth loss. Our team can help you decide which type of restoration listed below would be best for you:

Missing 1 Tooth

Once an implant root is firmly in place, we attach an abutment which connects the implant post to a custom-made, all-porcelain dental crown. Unlike a traditional bridge, this new tooth will be able to firmly stay in place without putting stress on the nearby teeth and gums. And, because a dental implant restored with a porcelain crown looks like the teeth that surround it, it will completely blend into the smile.

Missing Multiple Teeth

A bridge is a prosthetic tooth replacement option that restores the crown portion of one or more consecutive missing teeth. Using dental implants as secure anchors within the jawbone, our team helps you restore your smile & your bite with an implant-secured bridge. The implants help to keep the jawbone healthy while the carefully crafted restorations look & feel natural. Enjoy a beautifully restored smile with dental implants and a custom bridge.

Missing All Teeth

Dentures that are secured to the jaw bone using dental implants are more comfortable and look more natural than traditional removable prosthetics, making them an ideal choice for men and women who prefer a sturdier and stronger tooth replacement option. The dental implants help to keep the jaw strong while the beautifully crafted dentures allow you to smile, speak, and eat with renewed confidence. You’ll love the comfort that come with the placement of implant-retained dentures.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Because dental implants are able to help patients with a wide spectrum of tooth loss, the cost of the procedure can vary quite a bit from patient to patient as well. How many teeth a patient would like to be replaced, where they are located in the mouth, and the need for any preparatory procedures (such as a bone graft or tooth extraction) are all important factors that can affect the overall price of the procedure.

While it is true that implant restorations tend to cost more upfront than standard bridges or dentures, they are actually the most cost-effective option overall. Why? In addition to their superior function and aesthetics, dental implants are also extremely durable. Traditional replacements typically need to be completely redone every 7-10 years, while dental implants, with excellent care may last for 20 years or more. This often makes them just a onetime cost, saving a patient thousands of dollars in routine maintenance compared to more traditional treatments.
