Dental Implants in Baltimore


At Waterfront Dental

Dental implants are a solution for missing teeth, and they are made to look and feel like your natural teeth. Your implant is surgically placed by Dr. Merguerian, and after treatment, your replacement tooth won’t shift the way that dentures can. When you leave our office with your new implant, you’ll have confidence and peace of mind knowing that your new tooth is durable and long-lasting. Call us now to schedule an appointment in Baltimore to restore your smile!


Assessing Your Dental Health

Since dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone, you must have healthy gums and adequate bone in your jaw to support the small titanium post. During a consultation, Dr. Merguerian will thoroughly assess your dental health to make sure you are a good candidate for dental implants. Typically, patients who smoke or who have uncontrolled diabetes or periodontal disease are better served with other restorative options. Call us today to schedule an appointment and see whether implants are the right option for you!


How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

The cost of implants can vary based on how many you need and how extensive the work is to surgically place your implant. At WaterfrontDental, we have resources for our patients and we do our best to keep your treatment within your budget. If you’re interested in dental implants, give us a call today to schedule a consultation or to discuss the cost with our friendly Baltimore team.


CBCT For Precise Implant Planning

For the most precise, accurate, and efficient implant placements, we use the VaTech i3D Smart CBCT Machine. This technology allows us to get detailed scans and images of your mouth to create a precise implant placement plan. After you’ve been approved for a dental implant, Dr. Merguerian will simply scan your mouth with our CBCT machine. The scan process is comfortable, quick, and non-invasive. Dr. Merguerian will use these images to plan your implant placement procedure, ensuring a successful procedure.


Types Of Implant Dentistry

Implant Placements

Implant placement is the first step of any implant procedure. After Dr. Merguerian has customized your implant plan, she will use advanced surgical tools to place your implant directly into your gums and jawbone. The area will then be cleaned, sutured shut, and allowed to heal.

Dr. Dawn Merguerian has years of experience in the placement of dental implants. We use the latest technology and techniques at Waterfront Dental to plan your treatment, including digital X-rays and computer-based planning software. This ensures that your implant is placed perfectly in your mouth, and will attach and bond strongly to the underlying structure of your jaw.

We minimize the risk of complications like peri-implantitis and ensure that your new dental implants will heal quickly. After your implant has been placed you’ll come in for several follow-up appointments at our Baltimore office so that we ensure you’re recovering properly.

Implant Restorations

We offer a wide variety of implant restorations and work with the very best dental labs and technicians to ensure that your new teeth look and feel natural, and are completely comfortable. Whether you’re replacing a single tooth with a crown, replacing multiple teeth with an implant-supported bridge, or replacing a full arch of teeth with an implant-supported overdenture, Dr. Dawn Merguerian is here to help.

During your post-implant recovery process, we’ll monitor your healing progress and take dental impressions and images of your teeth to begin the process of building your implant restoration. Once your mouth has healed completely and your implant restoration arrives at our office, Dr. Mergurian will attach it to your implant, completing your treatment and your smile.

Mini Implants

Mini implants are similar to traditional “endosteal” implants in that they are implanted directly into your jaw, and they work the same way. However, they are about half the width and size of a traditional dental implant.

Their smaller size means that the placement of mini implants is less invasive compared to traditional implants. They usually heal much faster, and require less healthy jaw bone for placement, making them ideal for patients who have experienced bone loss.

We utilize mini implants for implant-supported overdentures. Using a series of mini implants, Dr. Dawn Merguerian can create a full set of teeth that will snap onto your implants, holding them tightly in place.

Along with having increased durability, mini implant-supported overdentures provide better stability and functionality compared to traditional dentures. Because they are anchored by the mini implants, they will not slip or move when you eat or speak. Mini implants from Waterfront Dental are an ideal solution if you are interested in full-mouth reconstruction that will last for years to come.
