Severna Park, MD (PRWEB) October 29, 2013
Neil R. Woods, DDS, PA, dental implants dentist in Severna Park, MD, recently introduced a new procedure that is helping patients achieve permanent, healthy smiles in less time than ever possible. Using mini dental implants, Dr. Woods is now able to offer patients a better alternative than traditional implants to getting a smile that looks great but also functions flawlessly.
Due to injury, tooth decay, or other health problems, millions of adults in the United States must rely on removable dentures to be able to eat and talk normally, as well as have an appearance they can be confident with. Unfortunately, the majority of denture wearers struggle with miss-fitting, loose, or broken oral denture appliances which can cause pain, bacteria build-up, and health problems due to an insufficient diet.
The new mini dental implants procedure now offered by Dr. Woods is helping removable denture wearers find a solution to receiving permanent smiles quickly, affordably, and with minimal surgery.
“Dental implants have really revolutionized the way we’re able to care for patients with missing, broken, or decayed teeth,” said Dr. Neil Woods, Severna Park, MD implant dentist. “Mini implants are minimally invasive and can typically be done within one office visit. This is a drastic change from traditional implant procedures, and makes permanent teeth something that more people can achieve who desperately need it.”
Traditional dental implants require major surgery and complete sedation, requiring several months of healing before porcelain crowns can be attached to the implanted titanium studs. With mini dental implants, however, the titanium anchors are much smaller and require minimal incisions. Full denture arches can be placed on just a few titanium implants, allowing for permanent, perfectly fitted teeth. They are a better option for elderly patients with thinner jaw bone density, and also require drastically less healing time.
In addition to being a highly qualified provider of dental implants in Severna Park, MD, Dr. Woods and his staff at Gentle Family Dentistry also provide a variety of other cosmetic services including Invisalign, CEREC crowns, veneers, and more. They are also providers of oral sedation to provide patients with stress-free dental visits.
Dr. Neil Woods graduated from the NYU School of Dentistry and subsequently completed a residency at Johns Hopkins, where he learned advanced reconstructive techniques for handicapped children. He has been practicing dentistry for more than 30 years and is continually updating his skills and techniques with continuing education.
