Dentist in Pocomoke City
Dental implants are a safe, durable replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants function and appear like natural teeth. We are committed to ensuring your optimal comfort and quality care. We use the latest techniques to ensure efficient, stress-free treatment.
Dental implants may be paired with replacement crowns for full tooth replacement. They may also be used to anchor dentures. Dr. Wagner will recommend your teeth replacement plan based on your individual needs and preferences. We will refer you to a trusted specialist to have the implants placed, then we will follow up to complete your restoration.
Implantation is the first stage in a two-part process that provides a long-term solution for tooth loss. The dental implant, a small titanium post, is gently placed into your jaw by our doctor. This post functions as an artificial tooth root. As it heals, the implant will fuse with your natural bone, creating a strong, secure foundation for the replacement tooth or denture. Throughout the process, our team takes great care in ensuring your optimal comfort.

- Improve your oral health
- Improve your speech

There are several factors that Dr. Wagner will consider before recommending dental implants. Some of these include:

In some cases, Dr. Wagner may recommend advance treatment for your upper or lower jaw. Your individual plan is based on your unique needs and goals for your healthy smile.

How do I care for my implants?
You will need to care for your implants just as you care for your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing are important to prevent the build-up of plaque. Regular dental cleanings and exams are still an important part of ensuring great oral health.
Is it painful to receive a dental implant?
With the advances of modern technology, most patients report feeling very little discomfort both during and after treatment. Our team is trained and certified to offer sedation with oral surgery, which provides a relaxed, comfortable experience during treatment.
How long will my implants last?
With proper care and treatment, your implants can last a lifetime, just like natural teeth.
