Dr. Stewart of Smile Savers Dentistry Discusses the Advances in Dental Implants

Dr. Daniel Stewart at Smile Savers Dentistry in Columbia MarylandI recently returned from an international dental implant symposium that was hosted by the implant brand I use, Biohorizons. There were dentists at the symposium from all over the world. I was extremely impressed to see just how many doctors are embracing this technology and how predictable and well researched the dental implants we offer here at our dentist office Smile Savers Dentistry truly are.

Biohorizons has a technology that no other brand has. It’s called Laserlok. They have solved the inherent problem of the gums attaching to the dental implant. All implants can attach to the bone but none – up to this point – were able to get the gums to attach. Through the amazing process of laser etching the side of the dental implant, at the size of 7 microns, the gum tissue will literally grow and attach to the laser channels.

I watched an electron microscope video of fibroblasts, the cells that make up the connective tissue of your gums, literally crawl along the channels and then settle in the grooves and become attached to the dental implant. Wow, to see those little cells acting on their own determinism was an amazing testament to life!

So what does this all mean to you, the dental patient? It means that these dental implants are more predictable and more natural than any other implants on the market. I am glad to be able to offer these to you at my Columbia, MD dental office, if you should need them to replace teeth or anchor a denture.

If you have any questions about dental implants, please feel free to give our dental office a call at 410-730-6460 to schedule an appointment. My experienced and caring team and I strive to be the best dentist office in Howard County and would love to help you with all of your dental and oral health care needs. The Smile Savers Dentistry office is conveniently located in Columbia, Maryland and is easily accessible from Route 100 or 29.

“So, do you really need that crown?” by Dr. Daniel Stewart

Dr. Daniel Stewart at Smile Savers Dentistry in Columbia MarylandDentistry can be preventive, if people would only look at it that way. While your family doctor can’t look at you and say, you’re going to get sick next month… in dentistry we can tell our patients, if you don’t fix that tooth, it will start hurting soon. Unfortunately, many people wait until that tooth starts hurting to take care of it!

If you have teeth that are severely damaged due to trauma, decay, or gum disease, you should consider restoring the look and function of your smile with dental crowns. Dental crowns are placed for several reasons. Usually the tooth has been broken or severely damaged by decay. As a result, a filling can’t replace enough of the tooth or make the tooth strong enough. A crown may hold together parts of a cracked tooth and can also be used to hold a bridge in place.

There are several benefits to dental crowns. They can improve the look of broken, cracked, misshapen, or severely discolored teeth. Attached to an implant of dental bridge, a dental crown can also replace a missing tooth, restoring the look of your smile. Patients can restore their damaged or missing teeth and give the illusion of always having a healthy, bright smile.

Dental crowns should last between five to fifteen years, depending on how you take care of them. And unlike dentures, which can shift and slide, crowns stay in place because they are either cemented over your damaged tooth or implant, or anchored in place with a dental bridge to replace a missing tooth. Crowns are a superior choice over full or partial dentures, which can cause pain and discomfort because they sit on top of the jawbone and gums and can also shift around in the mouth. Crowns, on the other hand, are stable and do not irritate the gums.

Missing teeth can cause the jaw bone to shrink, which can affect a patient’s speech. Restoring missing teeth with crowns can help a patient speak confidently, in a relaxed tone. A dental crown can also restore confidence to patients who feel self-conscious about their “broken” smile as well as restoring full function of your damaged tooth!

If you are considering dental crowns, call our dentist office in Columbia, MD at 410-730-6460 to make an appointment. And please visit the Smile Savers Dentistry website, we have a special $200 OFF a crown offer in our June 2013 newsletter.

A Word From Dr. Stewart: Snap-On Smiles

Posted on August 29, 2012. Filed under: affordable cosmetic dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, Dental Treatment, orthodontics, Smile Savers Dentistry, Snap-On Smiles, Teeth alignment, Teeth Whitening, Tooth straightening, Tooth Whitening | Tags: , , , , |

Dr. Daniel Stewart at Smile Savers Dentistry in Columbia MarylandA few of my patients have asked me about the product called Snap-On Smile over the years. I have told them that I was not sure about the merits of this product, thinking that it was just another fly-by-night, pie-in-the-sky dental product that I have witnessed over the last 23 years. But… I have recently had a change of heart.

For those who are wondering what I am talking about, the Snap-On Smile is a patented, easy and painless way by which you would be able to fix the cosmetics of your smile by snapping over top of your teeth, a custom designed set of teeth. They look realistic and you can eat with them.

The Snap-On Smile comes with a one year warranty and can last from 3-5 years. From their track record, they are a legitimate alternative for someone who wants to correct their dental appearance but doesn’t have the finances, time or willingness to get the more permanent fix done.

If you would like more information about the Snap-On Smile or want a consult about this alternative, please give our Columbia Maryland dental office a call for an appointment at 410-730-6460.
