Missing teeth can leave gaps in your smile, cause your jawbone to weaken, and make simple things like chewing and speaking difficult.
Dental implants replace missing tooth roots, improving jawbone health while supporting dental restorations like crowns and dentures.
Board-certified dentist Mohamed Saccoh can restore your smile and oral health with dental implants at his Joppa, MD, dental practice.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are strong titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jawbone where natural teeth are missing. The titanium dental implants act as artificial tooth roots to which lifelike crowns, bridges, and dentures can be attached. Dentistry professionals consider implants to be the best way to replace missing teeth because they provide support to the jawbone, prevent bone recession, and keep restorations like dentures securely in place.
A New Smile Thanks to Dental Implants
Benefits of Dental Implants
Restore Smile Form and Function
After placing your implants, Dr. Saccoh will attach a lifelike dental restoration. This dental restoration is designed to renew your smile and boost your confidence. It can also make it easier to eat healthy foods like crunchy fruits and veggies.
Improve Bone Health
When natural teeth are missing, your jawbone can shrink and weaken. This can give your face a shrunken appearance. Implants encourage strong bone growth, and the attached restorations can make your face look full and healthy.
If you maintain good oral hygiene and visit the dentist regularly, dental implants placed by Dr. Saccoh at his state-of-the-art Joppa, MD, practice can last for decades.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
Q. Is implant recovery painful?
A. It is normal to experience some discomfort the first few days following implant placement. However, over-the-counter pain medications, a soft diet to reduce irritation, and ice packs to reduce swelling should help ease the pain. Your dentist may also prescribe pain medications to help as well. We will provide you with all the information you need to make recovery as easy as possible. If you experience any troubling symptoms or pain that is not easily managed at home, please contact our Joppa dental practice so we can address your concerns promptly.
Q. How long do implants last?
A. The implant and abutment used to secure your restoration to the implant are made of durable titanium. With proper care and maintenance, they are designed to last a lifetime. Your custom denture, crown, or bridge can last 15 years or more. However, that restoration will wear over time and eventually need to be replaced.
Q. How do I care for my implant and restoration?
A. Your restoration will be secured to the implant so you will treat your new smile just like you would your natural teeth. Practice good oral hygiene by brushing twice daily and flossing at least once a day. It is also important to continue your regular dental exams and cleanings to ensure your new smile lasts for years to come.
Q. I have some oral health issues that disqualify me from implant treatment. Can you help me?
A. Yes. We offer comprehensive treatment options to restore your oral health and help you qualify for dental implant treatment. And if you need bone grafting, Dr. Saccoh can refer you to a trusted oral surgeon for treatment.
