Real Patient Stories
Hear Tony talk about his experience at the Djawdan Center and the difference that implant supported dentures have made in his life.
The Djawdan Center is one of the few dentists in Annapolis to offer complete treatment for dental implants in one office, with one dentist. Dr. Djawdan is highly qualified in experienced in all aspects of implant and sedation dentistry. Dental implants offer the most permanent solution for missing teeth. The implant actually replaces the root of the tooth, becoming fully integrated with the bone. Dental implants are generally the most expensive replacement option, but they also require the least maintenance. Not all patients qualify for dental implants. The location of the missing tooth as well as the overall health of the patient and bone structure will be evaluated before the dentist recommends treatment.
For some patients, a dental bridge may be the best and most affordable solution for the replacement of a missing tooth. Dr. Djawdan can explore treatment options including a fixed bridge which can be anchored either with a dental crown and/or a dental implant.
Dr. Djawdan offers multiple options for replacing all of a person’s missing teeth with dentures. A denture can either be removable or secured with dental implants. The most popular treatment option in our Annapolis dental office is the “all on four” or “teeth in a day” procedure. Implant supported dentures offer a much higher level of stability and comfort compared to removable dentures and eliminate common issues such as slippage, bone recession and dietary restrictions.
