The Dental Implant Process
Dental implant placement typically involves two procedures. We will surgically place the implant into the jaw bone and let that heal for up to six months. Next, a prosthetic will be attached to the implant or we will cover the implant with a dental crown. The average dental implant process can take up to eight months with minimal disruption to your day-to-day life. We can discuss the implant process in more detail during your consultation.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures is a permanent method for stabilizing your denture. During the procedure, Dr. Savukinas will place between 2-6 dental implants in the jaw. A new denture will be made that will attach directly to the dental implants, ensuring a secure and stable restoration. Occasionally, your existing denture can be modified for the procedure.
Patients who opt for implant supported dentures experience greater comfort, better ability to eat and speak clearly, and an improved quality of life. Learn more about dental implants and implant supported dentures by scheduling your appointment with Dr. Savukinas in Rockville, MD today.
