Dental Implants

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.

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.

Long-Lasting Investment

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.

In this video, Dr. Mohamed Saccoh discusses dental implants. Implants can replace one tooth or several teeth. Implants are the only tooth replacement option that help maintain the bone around the tooth.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Here's what implant placement, abutment attachment, and restoration placement look like.

Can You Describe Each Step?

Of course. Prior to your implant surgery appointment, you will undergo a comprehensive oral exam at our Joppa, MD, dental practice. Dr. Saccoh will use a 3-D cone beam digital scanner to create a precise, customized implant placement plan based on your smile and oral health goals.
After just three appointments, you can experience a complete smile.
After just three appointments, you can experience a complete smile.

1st Appointment

After numbing anesthetic and (if needed) sedation are administered, Dr. Saccoh will make small incisions in your gums, through which the dental implants will be inserted into your jawbone.  


Over the next four to six months, your jawbone will heal and fuse to the implants, securely anchoring them in place.

2nd Appointment

Dr. Saccoh will attach connectors called abutments to the implants. This requires a second surgery. Oral sedation is always available to you if you feel anxious.

Healing Period

Your gums will now heal around the abutments. This should take around two weeks.

3rd Appointment

Dr. Saccoh can now attach custom-built crowns, bridges, or dentures to your implants. It's time to show off your new smile.

Afraid of Dentists or Pain? We Can Help

Don't Fear the Dentist

Delaying important dental treatments like implant surgery due to a fear of pain or dentists can affect your oral and overall health. Dr. Saccoh offers safe and effective sedation dentistry to help you feel calm and comfortable.

Oral Conscious Sedation

By taking a prescribed pill before your appointment, you will become deeply relaxed. You will remain pain-free and able to respond to Dr. Saccoh during the implant surgery. Please have someone drive you to and from our office as you may be groggy.

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.
