Dr. Steven N. Rice of the Advanced Laser Gum Surgery Institute of Washington provides dental implants to patients whose advanced gum disease has caused them to require tooth replacement. Implants are surgically attached to the bone and are extremely durable. They look and function in a similar manner to natural teeth, and they are considered a long-term replacement.

Dr. Steven N. Rice uses dental implants to improve the oral health of Rockville residents who require tooth replacement. Millions of people suffer from gum disease each year, and one of the problems it can lead to is the need for tooth replacement. Others may lose teeth in an accident and require tooth replacement. Using dental implants is a way Dr. Rice can provide a long-term solution for his patients.
Patients at the Advanced Laser Gum Surgery Institute of Washington can find long-term solutions to their need for tooth replacement with dental implants. Dr. Rice knows that patients with gum disease may eventually require tooth replacement, and implants are a durable option that can give a patient the look and feel of natural teeth. Whether a patient requires only a single tooth or many teeth replaced, dental implants are an important treatment option.
Dr. Rice uses implants that are made of titanium because it is strong and can actually fuse to the jawbone where it is implanted. There is a small part of the implant that remains exposed, and an abutment is connected to this part of the implant. Next, the crown is attached to the abutment.
One of the best things about dental implants is the fact that they can aid in the preservation of the jaw bone. Teeth that are lost or removed because of gum disease or other issues leave the bone open to erosion and allow it to begin to weaken. Implants can provide stability to the jaw, so installing them as soon as possible after teeth are removed can reduce bone loss and promote stability.
