Sometimes a tooth needs to be extracted due to severe damage or decay. Fortunately, there are ways to replace missing teeth, one of which is dental implants. Implants offer a permanent solution to replacing lost teeth. Contact Hunt Valley Dental in Hunt Valley, Maryland, to learn more about our implant procedures if you’re interested in implant treatment.

Whether you want to replace one missing tooth or many, Dr. Thomas Rhodes can reconstruct your smile with dental implants.
Replacing missing teeth with implants is a process that may take up to six months to complete. Dr. Thomas Rhodes will evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw to verify you’re a good candidate for this treatment. If so, we’ll proceed with the first step of embedding a titanium post into the gap of your missing tooth to permanently fuse with your jawbone, a process that may take three to four months to complete. Once the post is firmly in place, we’ll place an abutment on top of it, which will eventually hold a dental crown to complete your implant procedure.
