Dental implants create a more stable and natural solution for patients with missing teeth. In our comfortable Silver Spring dentist office, Dr. David Rever and our dedicated staff work to restore your missing teeth. They provide a permanent solution to patients suffering from tooth loss.
- Replace a tooth that is chipped, cracked, missing, decayed, or can not be corrected with a dental crown
- Secure dental bridges
- Maintains the shape and appearance of the jaw
- Supports a permanently secure dental crown
- To provide a solid foundation for teeth
- Replace teeth instead of dentures
The results of dental implants are long-lasting and stable. Dr. Rever will decide whether you need two, four, or more implants to secure your crowns or dentures. Many patients choose them if applicable due to their stability and strong foundation. In addition to providing tooth implants, Dr. Rever treats many dental services in his Silver Spring, MD, dental office.

Dental Implants v.s. Dentures
Dentures used to be the only solution for missing teeth. Today we are fortunate to be able to offer a much better tooth replacement alternative. Dental implants are anchored to the bone rather than being attached to a plate that fits inside your mouth.
A small titanium fixture is inserted into the bone, which replaces the missing root. The tooth is then attached to this. You can use this prosthetic the same as you would your natural teeth!
Dental Implants: What to Expect
Besides helping a person without teeth look and feel great again, dental implants actually prevent bone loss. That’s because they are made of titanium, which has a unique ability to fuse to living bone. By becoming a permanent part of the jawbone, they stabilize and stimulate the bone to maintain its volume and density.
Dental implants are placed during a minor surgical procedure using local anesthetic and then, after a healing period, topped with a lifelike dental crown. These precision components look, feel, and function exactly like your natural teeth. Dental implant success rates exceed 95% — the highest of any tooth-replacement option.
Our dentist in Silver Spring will explain the implant procedure to you during your initial consultation. We will tell you what to expect afterward and how to care for your dental implants. We’ll also do a complete examination to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure.
