Keep your healthy, beautiful, complete smile with our comprehensive dental implant care

ABingham-Lester Dentistry in CroftonMaryland, we understand that tooth loss is not a “natural” part of aging, nor does it have to be a foregone conclusion for seniors. Our talented and kind dentist, Dr. Vickii R. Bingham-Lesterencourages patients of all ages to keep as many teeth as possible – for as long as possible. However, we also appreciate and are sensitive to the fact that some situations and conditions cannot be avoided or anticipated. In these cases, quickly replacing missing teeth with alternatives like implants is essential. Failure to do so can make existing problems with chewing, speaking, and other basic functions worse, which has tremendous impacts on individuals’ overall health, well-being, and quality of life. 

Dental Implants for Seniors in Crofton MD Area

A world of options

Fortunately, seniors with missing or failing teeth have never had more options to replace them. In the past, tooth replacement was limited to “traditional” dentures or “false teeth.” While these conventional options may have filled the space, the dentures-“wearer” experienced challenges with appliances that slid around, looked “plastic,” and required ongoing adjustments and even replacement.

Today, implant-supported dentures are an attractive alternative to earlier-generation prosthetic appliances. These modern dentures differ from bridges and other types of dentures; they are the only form of tooth replacement that mimics the structure of a natural tooth. The implant itself is a tooth root. So, the design imitates the all-important portion of the natural tooth that holds it in place: the root. Healthy, lasting function and patient satisfaction follow. With utmost stability, our patients enjoy:

  • Natural-looking teeth
  • Healthy function – no embarrassing or uncomfortable slippage when eating, speaking, and laughing!
  • Sustained bone health; loss of bone in the jaw is avoided
  • Sustained structural support of the face and tissues for a youthful, healthy appearance (and much more!)
  • Their new teeth can last for many years without needing frequent adjustments or replacing their dentures.

The value and importance of complete implant care

At other dentists’ offices in Crofton, MD, and beyond, the implant may be restored with a crown, bridge, or denture but not placed. At Bingham-Lester Dentistry, we have all the capabilities you need right here. Dr. Bingham-Lester applies implants in the jawbone. Once the biocompatible implant has naturally fused or joined to the rest of the jaw, she restores it with a beautiful and durable crown, bridge, or denture. Discover your options today.
