What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants consist of body-safe titanium posts used to act as artificial tooth roots for replacing teeth lost due to trauma, extraction, or decay from severe gum disease. An implant is designed to look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth.
Implant posts are permanently placed into the jaw and can offer patients the benefit of a long-term tooth replacement primarily because of their ability to fuse with living tissue and bone. This process, called osseointegration, provides restored strength and durability to your jawbone.
Increasing Your Chances of Successful Implant Treatment
While successful implant placement into the jaw bone requires a certain amount of bone density, we can implement procedures such as bone grafting or ridge augmentation to improve bone quality. Once the jaw has been strengthened, almost any patient can be a candidate for dental implants.
Dental implants are a popular option for patients missing more than one tooth. For these individuals, our team places multiple dental implants to support a more substantial restoration. With implant bridges and implant dentures provided by us, patients can enjoy the added benefits of restorations supported by dental implants.
The Implant Process Explained
Starting with your first consultation at our Lorton-Springfield oral surgery practice, Dr. Patel uses advanced diagnostic tools to determine your restoration needs. During the implant consultation, in-depth images of your teeth and jaw are taken and used to create a placement strategy. Once this treatment plan is complete, you’ll meet with our doctors to discuss treatment, restoration, and sedation options.
Implant placement is a straightforward procedure. After the implant is securely placed into the jaw, patients return to our oral surgery practice for check-ups and to ensure the implant is integrating into the bone tissue. Once this process is complete, patients return to their general dentist for the placement of their restoration.
