Fixing Missing Teeth With Dental Implants

dental implant01If you’re missing one or a few teeth, the best option to restore your mouth is dental implants. At Delmarva Sedation Dentistry, we’re here to help.

Dr. Dougherty is a highly skilled dentist that has studied implantology and is well-equipped to help you through your implant surgery. It is important to replace missing teeth because once the original tooth and root are gone, your jawbone begins to shrink. A dental implant can help stop the shrinkage.

The dental implant is composed of two parts: the implant post or root and the actual implant itself. The post will be attached to your jaw by Dr. Dougherty and allowed to heal. Once it’s healed, then the implants can be attached and your smile will be repaired. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, in part because they’re attached to your jawbone just like your natural teeth.

If you’re missing teeth, dental implants could be the treatment you’ve been waiting for. We’d love to help you learn just how easy it can be. The team here at Delmarva Sedation Dentistry wants to see you smiling proudly again!

Call us today to schedule your appointment or to learn more about our dental implant procedures. Delmarva Sedation Dentistry serves patients from Bethany Beach, Fenwick, Ocean Pines, Salisbury and Berlin.
