Dental Implants in Lutherville, MD
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. People are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.
Dr. Yehuda Lehrfield is an expert in dental implants, having restored thousands of smiles. He offers two options for tooth replacement: traditional implants and implant-supported dentures. Implant restoration offers many benefits over other tooth replacements, such as permanently securing teeth in place, fewer restrictions on what foods the patient can eat, and reduced risk of breakage.
Severely missing teeth or an injury can damage your smile. Dental implants are the most advanced system for the replacement of missing teeth. Conventional fixed bridges and dentures remain effective and satisfying ways to replace missing teeth. We offer dental implants for:
- Single Dental Implants
- All-on-4® Dental Implants
- Hybrid Dental Implants
- Implant-Retained Dentures
Single Dental Implant: By Staying anchored to your jawbone, dental implants keep your smile healthy and natural-looking. A single-tooth implant is designed specifically for an individual tooth replacement. It is securely anchored into the jawbone, sealed by a custom-shaded dental crown, and provides the best possible outcomes for maintaining your health and appearance.
Hybrid Implant Dentures: Hybrid dental implants permanently affix dentures to the remaining teeth in your mouth. These implants, made of titanium and stainless steel, are inserted into the jaw during a simple surgical procedure and can be used with any denture. They are designed for patients who have worn dentures for an extended time and have lost many more teeth than can be supported by conventional oral appliances.
Implant-Retained Dentures: Dentures can be naturally bulky and heavy, and they rely on a suction cup to stay in place and often result in jawbone deterioration. Implant-retained dentures are an alternative that promotes healthy bone retention, giving patients both form and function. The durable silicate shells fit seamlessly over dental implants, while the prosthetic teeth allow natural-looking smiles that are great for everyday wear, improving chewing ability and self-confidence.
All-on-4® Dental Implants: All-On-4 dental implants are a long-lasting solution for patients who deal with traditional removable dentures. They are also known to provide patients with new teeth in a day! These implants are attached to custom dentures that offer more stability than traditional removable dentures because they are attached to the jawbone and secured by four titanium fixtures.
Unlike other dental implant systems, the All-on-4 System requires only four implants to support upper or lower dentures. Processed through 3D scanning, these custom-built implants fit into a natural-looking patient's mouth with precision and comfort. The process is completed in one appointment!
Implant dentistry is a dental procedure used to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is implanted into the patient's gum and jawbone, which will remain intact for life. The dental implant replaces the root of a tooth and provides new support for prosthetic crowns or bridges that may be installed later on.
