Dr. Dougherty Places & Restores Dental Implants in Ocean City

Are you missing one or more teeth? Do you have a loose denture that slips at the most inopportune times? Dr. Edward Dougherty gives patients dental_implantsbeautiful, secure, long-lasting smiles with dental implants. The doctor is an accomplished oral surgeon, implant dentist, and sedation dentist. He’ll take care of every phase of the dental implant process. You’ll receive the attention you deserve from a dentist and team Ocean City trusts.

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is composed of two parts: a biocompatible, surgical-grade titanium post that functions as a tooth root and a custom-made replacement tooth or teeth attached to the post.

What are the uses of dental implants?
Dr. Dougherty places dental implants to replace individual missing teeth and to stabilize dentures, partials, and bridges.

Why should I choose dental implants?
Implants provide a wealth of benefits over conventional tooth replacement techniques, including:

  • The ability to comfortably eat the foods you love
  • Articulate speech
  • No need for denture adhesive
  • The bone loss and gum shrinkage that accompanies missing teeth is halted
  • Existing teeth stay where they belong – no drifting
  • A more youthful appearance returns because facial structures are once again supported
  • Renewed confidence in your smile
  • A stellar success rate – 95 to 98%
  • The potential to last a lifetime with proper care

Why should I choose Dr. Dougherty as my implant dentist?
Dr. Dougherty has the knowledge, skill, and experience to perform the surgery to place the implants posts in the jawbone and restore the tooth or teeth that attach to the posts. His post-graduate study in implantology includes training at the Misch Institute and the International Congress of Implantology. The doctor performs every aspect of the dental implant process, from pre- to post-treatment care. For over 20 years, Dr. Dougherty has provided full-service, top-of-the-line cosmetic, restorative, implant, and sedation dentistry to residents of Ocean City and surrounding areas.

Are dental implants right for me?
Most people with missing teeth are candidates for dental implants. Call our Ocean City office today to schedule an implant dentistry consultation with Dr. Dougherty and learn more. Dental implants turn back the clock on dental damage and neglect to give patients long-lasting, life-changing smiles.
