Dental Implants

Ashburn Dentist


Designed to replicate natural teeth, dental implants consist of a crown and a tooth root, which are made of titanium and porcelain. Dental implants are great solutions used to restore the functionality of your natural teeth, as well as renew your smile and confidence.

Purpose

Dental Implants are restorative solutions most commonly used for replacing a missing tooth or multiple teeth. They can also be used to secure partial or complete dentures as well as used to help support dental bridges.

Benefits

Because dental implants are permanently placed, they are able to provide many unique benefits that alternative solutions may not be able to offer.

  • Improve and Protect Natural Aesthetics:

    When a tooth or multiple teeth is lost, the bone and gums that used to surround the area start to deteriorate and lose its firmness and structure. As the foundation of your smile weakens, so does your facial structure. When your gum and bone deteriorates, it causes the mouth and face to appear caved-in. However, by placing dental implants, it will help stimulate growth in the bone and gums once again, preventing deterioration from occurring. Also, dental implants can prevent adjacent teeth from shifting or moving toward empty spaces in the mouth.

  • Restoring Functionality:

    With dental implants, you no longer have to experience any discomfort or frustration when speaking, laughing or eating. They provide a strong, solid foundation that feel and look very natural. Dental implants are built to last and can make even make the most natural daily actions seem “natural” once again.

  • Enhance your Smile:

    Dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth. With the design and secure foundation that dental implants provide, no one, not even you, will be able to distinguish your implant apart from your natural teeth. With a fully restored smile, you can enjoy the boost of confidence dental implants can provide.

Procedure

Dental implants can be performed in office and requires two phases of treatment. The first phase involves surgically bonding the implant in place and the second phase involves attaching the artificial tooth or teeth to the implant. To ensure comfort, local anesthesia will be provided. The entire procedure will generally take six to eight months to complete, but during this time, you will notice minimal disruption in your daily life.

Be sure to schedule regular checkups and continue proper brushing and flossing techniques to prevent formation of diseases. With proper care, your dental implants will last you many years.
