As you might guess by the name of our practice, dental implants are our specialty. Dr. Sreeni has decades of experience placing implants, with expertise in performing smile-in-a-day procedures in which teeth are extracted, implants are placed, and replacement teeth are attached all in a single day.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed in the jawbone to replace the root of missing teeth. Abutments are attached to these posts, which are then used to anchor in place crowns, bridges, full or partial dentures. Because the dental implants and the jaw bone fuse together through a process known as osseointegration, this type of restoration results in a strong bite, improved function, and the preservation of bone density and facial structures.
At the Dental Implant Center of Rockville, we use state-of-the-art technology to optimize outcomes for our patients. With guided implant placement, we utilize CBCT scans and virtual 3D models of your teeth and jaw to simulate dental implant results in order to develop a treatment plan customized to each patient’s unique needs. We then take this model and use it to create a surgical guide to use during implant placement, to ensure that all implants are placed at the precise location, angle, and depth. For patients who are missing a few teeth we are able to navigate the implants with X-Nav. This allows Dr. Sreeni to place implants with 3D guidance on the same day of consultation without the loss of time of fabricating a 3D model and surgical guide(10 day turn around).
Our Rockville, MD practice offers the following types of dental implants:
Single Tooth Dental Implants
For single tooth dental implants, we place a biocompatible titanium post in the jaw, which holds an abutment that is used to anchor a dental crown. Dr. Sreeni is able to place implants and abutments immediately after a tooth has been extracted, an approach that saves time, money, and minimizes the need for anesthesia, time off of work, and pain medications.
Implant-supported bridges are used when three or more adjacent teeth are missing. The difference between this type of bridge and a traditional bridge is that rather than placing crowns on surrounding teeth, dental implants are used instead to act as anchors for the bridge. This type of bridge is made with realistic-looking materials to blend in with your remaining teeth, resulting in improved function and aesthetics.
Implant Supported Dentures
With implant-supported dentures, a full or partial denture is held in place with two or more dental implants instead of adhesive paste. This results in a more stable restoration, for a stronger bite and increased self-confidence. Implant-supported dentures may be fixed or removable (also called snap-on dentures).
Full Arch With Only Four/Six Implants
For patients missing an entire upper or lower arch of teeth, we can use this unique solution which involves placing four dental implants to use as anchors to secure a full arch of replacement teeth.
Mini Dental Implants (MDIs)
Mini dental implants are used when bone mass in the jaw is insufficient to support traditional implants. MDIs function the same way as standard implants, but the size of the post is smaller, so they don’t require the same amount of bone support from the jaw. The placement of MDIs is less invasive than traditional implant surgery and can be performed without need for stitches.
