Dental Implants in Falls Church
Dental implants are a great alternative to replace missing teeth. Additionally, they can act as an anchor to stabilize or support partial or complete dentures. Dr. Morabito has extensive training and knowledge in the placement of dental implants and has performed more than 1500 implants in the Falls Church VA area.
What are dental implants:
Dental implants are artificial roots, made from surgical grade titanium, that are placed into the upper or lower jaw. The teeth attached to implants are natural looking alternatives that will revitalize and restore a patient’s smile. Moreover, they will allow eating, chewing and restore one’s confidence.
Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years. They feel just like your natural teeth and offer the same functionality. Dental implant procedures will improve your life, offering you a better appearance as well as better and more enjoyable eating experiences.
Reasons for dental implants:
• Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
• Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
• Restore a patient’s confident smile.
• Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
• Restore or enhance facial tissues.
• Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.
What does getting dental implants involve?
The process of getting dental implants may require more than one dental visit over several months. The number of visits necessary depends on the patient’s current condition.
X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for a dental implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be placed into the bone and allowed to heal. In most cases, we take the impression 3-4 months after the implant placement and send this to a lab to fabricate the crown. A new and exciting technique that we are now involved with will allow us to fabricate the crown and the abutment (post) all in one visit using cad cam technology which saves our patients 1-3 extra visits.
If the dental implant is utilized to support a partial or complete denture, in many cases we will retrofit and place attachments in the denture the day of implant placement.
From our dental office in Falls Church, VA, we will give you care instructions when the dental implant treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.
