We Accept Maryland Health Smiles Dental Program
If you’re like most adults, then you’ve probably had at least one missing tooth. Although teeth can last a lifetime, accidents, decay, and disease do happen. In the past, if you lost a tooth, you only had two options: a bridge or a partial. At Kensington Dental Center and Gaithersburg Gentle Dental, we’re proud to offer our patients a revolutionary alternative. Dental implants represent the latest tooth-replacement technology, enabling patients to restore their smiles in the most natural way possible.
Dental Implants: Nature’s Rival
Dental implants have been designed to function in the same way as natural teeth. They have the same tooth-and-root structure, so they’re anchored in the jawbone. This means that your implant-retained teeth will not rely on neighboring teeth for support, as with bridges and partials. The benefits of this tooth-root structure are astounding.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Complete Implant Care with Dr. Woo
Normally, you’d have to visit an oral surgeon to place the implant, and then a dentist to affix the tooth portion on top. Dr. Woo and our team have taken advanced coursework and have years of experience with implant placement. At our Kensington and Gaithersburg offices, we offer complete implant care, including implant placement and restoration.
Implants and Dentures
Dental implants are a perfect solution for patients fed up with slipping, clicking dentures. Dr. Woo especially enjoys creating custom cosmetic dentures fitted with dental implants. Patients who wear implant-supported dentures can regain their confidence, as well as their ability to chew and speak with ease. Dr. Woo can attach dentures to full-size or mini dental implants. Call for a consultation to learn which option is right for you.
Dr. Woo and our team welcome new patients and look forward to helping you attain optimal oral health. Call today to reserve your appointment. At Gaithersburg Gentle Dental and Kensington Dental Center, we care about your smile!
