Are you looking for a permanent tooth replacement solution? Tooth implants are a great option to replace a missing tooth that feels like a real one. These new teeth can quickly become a permanent part of you smile.
Your Dental Implant Dentist
Dental implants are the standard of care for modern tooth replacement. Not only do implants function as independent teeth, but they also have the potential to last for life.
Each implant is made of an artificial titanium root. The titanium promotes new bone growth, allowing the jaw to fuse around the implant, as if it were a real tooth. After this process of “osseointegration” occurs, the implant can withstand a significant amount of weight – more than a natural tooth. This allows us to place a variety of restorations over your implant, including options like:
Single Porcelain Crowns
Replacing an independent tooth with a single implant and porcelain crown will give you the function and appearance of a new tooth. The independent tooth is easy to care for – just brush and floss it as normal!
Fixed Implant Bridges
Are you missing several teeth? An implant supported bridge can allow you to replace up to 3 or 4 teeth at one time – which is 2 to 3 teeth more than a conventional dental bridge.
For a secure denture that fits great all day long, our overdenture option is an excellent choice. Overdentures increase your comfort and ability to enjoy everyday food and conversation with confidence.
If you are looking for a fixed All-on-4 denture, Dr. Jones will coordinate care with a local surgeon for the precise placement of the implants, prior to her delivering the fixed appliance. Otherwise, all implants are placed directly by Dr. Jones herself, right here in our Falls Church dental office. Se habla español.
