If you are missing one or more teeth, you may have trouble chewing or speaking. You may also be very self-conscious about your smile and feel nervous eating or smiling around others. But dental implants from your Reston dentists Drs. Monica Neshat and Joy Jang canDental Implants restore your bite and your smile with long lasting, natural-looking results.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are made from a titanium post which is surgically implanted into your jaw to form a tooth root. The titanium fuses to your jawbone creating a tooth replacement solution that can last a lifetime. After the dental implant is in place, a crown is placed on top of the implant to give the appearance of a perfectly natural-looking tooth.

What is the Dental Implant Process?

Your Reston dentists will begin the dental implant process by determining if you are a good candidate for implants. Candidates will be in good overall health and must have enough healthy bone tissue to support the implant. If you are lacking sufficient tissue, your dentists may offer bone grafting to create a strong foundation for your dental implant.

Once your dentist determines your treatment plan, they will begin by implanting the post into your jaw. It may take several weeks to months for the post become permanently fused to the bone. Once the post is securely anchored, your dentists will place an abutment, which connects the post to the crown. Then, your dentist will attach the crown, which is the visible part of the tooth.

Caring for Your Investment

Once your treatment process is complete, you will begin caring for your new teeth just as you would your natural teeth. Dental implants need careful flossing, brushing, and regular checkups by your Reston dentists to ensure good overall oral health. Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime and should offer years of comfortable use with proper care and maintenance.

If you’re ready to invest in improving your smile, contact your dentists Drs. Neshat and Jang to ask about dental implants. Reston Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers dental implants as well as a variety of other cosmetic procedures to enhance and restore your smile to its full beauty.
