No matter how many teeth you are missing or why tooth loss has happened to you, our Reston, VA, cosmetic dentists, Dr. Monica Neshat and Dr. Joy Jang, can help guide you on the road to a full, confident smile again with the help of dental implants.

Implants function similarly to real teeth, replacing the roots of the tooth to support one or more false teeth. Here are some of the top benefits of choosing this restoration option:

A lifelong restoration: Implants are made from a durable and biocompatible material such as titanium, which naturally fuses together with the jawbone. This fusion is known as osseointegration. Once osseointegration occurs the implants could last for decades. This means that you could end up having your implant for the rest of your life.

A false tooth that acts like a real one: You will find that you are incredibly confident in your new smile when you know that your implant feels and looks just like a real tooth. It will blend right in with the rest of your smile and no one will even be able to tell that you have an implant but you. The false tooth will also help you maintain your natural face shape and smile.

Preserve jawbone health: A complication of untreated tooth loss is bone deterioration. The jawbone is so important to helping you maintain your natural face shape. As the jawbone shrinks, it can cause cheeks to cave in and premature lines/wrinkles to form. The only tooth replacement that actually prevents bone loss is a dental implant because it replaces the tooth roots and provides the jawbone with the stimulation it needs to stay healthy.

Enjoy your favorite foods: When you are missing one or more teeth, you may find that it’s particularly challenging to chew certain foods. If you want a false tooth that will be able to help you easily chew any and all foods without concern, then dental implants are the best way to go. Our Reston, VA, dentist understands the importance of having false teeth that feel like the real thing and implants can make chewing any and all foods so much easier.

A gapped smile takes its toll on your overall health, both mentally and physically. It causes numerous other physical issues, such as Dental-Implantshifting surrounding teeth and bone atrophy. The best way for preventing these issues is by replacing your missing teeth with dental implants. Understanding this procedure and how it can benefit your smile will determine if it is right for you. Find out more about dental implants with Dr. Monica Neshat and Dr. Joy Jang at Reston Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Reston, VA.

 

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a tooth replacement option for a missing tooth and its roots. Implants have been used for decades. They are FDA-approved, safe to use, and built to last a lifetime. Implants can replace a single missing tooth, several teeth in a row, or even an arch of teeth using implant-supported dentures.

 

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants have three parts: the fixture, the abutment, and the prosthetic. The fixture consists of a titanium screw. The screw is placed directly into the jawbone in the selected area, where it integrates into the bone to become a permanent part of the smile. The implant’s prosthetic is the replacement tooth itself; a tooth-shaped restoration made from porcelain and customized to fit seamlessly into your smile. The prosthetic can be a single tooth, a dental bridge, or a denture. The abutment connects the two main implant components and ensures a solid bond between the implant and replacement tooth.

If you’re interested in dental implants, a consultation with your dentist is the important first step on your journey to a restored, more beautiful smile. Not all patients are eligible for dental implants. Patients with significant bone atrophy, dental issues such as decay or gum disease, or an insufficient oral care routine may not qualify to receive dental implants.

With several options available, choosing how to replace your missing teeth can seem like a tricky task. However, dental implants, which are often referred to as the gold standard of teeth replacements, are a permanent and efficient solution to the gaps in your smile — but are they right for you? Find out more about dental implants and what they could mean for your smile by reading below, and contact Dr. Monica Neshat and Dr. Joy Jang at Reston Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Reston, VA, for treatment!

What is a dental implant? 

A dental implant is the most permanent and effective way to replace your missing tooth. Often touted as the “gold standard” of tooth replacement, implant dentistry fills in gaps to renew your smile and ensure that you can eat, speak, and chew just as you would with natural teeth. In addition to improved functionality, dental implants also focus on aesthetics, thereby boosting confidence levels, improving self-esteem, and easing face-to-face interactions.

What are my other tooth replacement options? 

Depending on your situation, you have several options to replace your missing teeth.

- Dental Bridges: Solutions like dental bridges use the surrounding natural teeth to anchor themselves into place via dental crowns. Implants also stand on their own to ensure that no surrounding teeth are compromised in the tooth replacement process.

- Traditional Dentures: Patients missing most or all of their teeth may consider traditional dentures. However, traditional dentures require removal while sleeping and rely mainly on suction to stay in place. Implant-supported dentures snap into place on four or more dental implants, making them a non-removable restoration which does not require the same high-maintenance care as their traditional counterpart.

If you think dental implants could help your smile, consulting with your dentist is the best way to confirm whether they are the best tooth replacement option for you. A good candidate for dental implants is in good dental and general health, is free from teeth decay and gum disease, has minimal bone atrophy, and possesses an adequate amount of remaining bone below the gum tissue in the area of their missing tooth.

Do you need to replace missing teeth? Dental implants could be what you’re looking for.dental implants

When you are faced with tooth loss it can often feel really stressful and unpredictable. Maybe you’ve tried doing some online research to figure out what option you should choose but it ended up just really confusing you and making you feel even more frustrated. If so, don’t fret; our Reston, VA, general dentists Dr. Monica Neshat and Dr. Joy Jang are here to make sure that you know a little bit more about dental implants and how they replace missing teeth.

Here are just some reasons to consider getting dental implants:

A Restoration for Life

Implants are made from durable titanium and can last several decades or longer. Dentures and bridges have to be replaced about every 8 to 15 years (and often repaired more frequently) but some patients could maintain their dental implant for the rest of their lives.

Preserve Your Jawbone

Tooth loss doesn’t just leave a gap in your smile but it also causes the jawbone to deteriorate, which in turn can affect the shape of your face and lead to premature wrinkles (yikes!). The only way to prevent bone loss and other aesthetic complications is to get a dental implant. This is because an implant acts like a tooth root and when placed into the jawbone by our Reston, VA, dentist will fuse together with the jawbone and provide it with the complete stimulation it needs to prevent bone loss and to even produce healthy, new cells.

A Tooth You Can Trust

Some people don’t realize the cons of dentures until they get them and realize that these false teeth can shift and move around in your mouth, often when chewing or speaking. This can be terribly frustrating and embarrassing, especially if the problem happens when out in public. If you want a restoration that you don’t have to worry about shifting out of place then you’ll want to choose dental implants.

Restore Your Smile’s Functionality

As we just mentioned, dentures often still pose a challenge for the wearer. Don’t you want a restoration that functions as close to a real tooth as possible and can also completely restore chewing and speaking? We thought so. Don’t get us wrong; bridges and dentures certainly have their benefits. But if you want to fully restore chewing strength then an implant is your best bet.

Whether you need to replace one or all of your teeth, find out how getting dental implants in Reston, VA can help you do just that. Call Reston Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today to schedule an appointment with us.

No one wants smile gaps. They're unsightly and unhealthy, too. The jaw bone and gum tissue naturally recede after tooth loss, affecting how dental implantsa person speaks, looks and chews. How can you improve your gapped smile? The most effective way is through state-of-the-art dental implants from Dr. Neshat and Dr. Jang at Reston Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. They're the next best thing to real teeth because they reside right in the jaw bone. Learn more here about today's best tooth replacement in Reston, VA.

The details on dental implants in Reston

Dental implants from Reston Family & Cosmetic Dentistry truly mimic the appearance, durability, and function of natural teeth. The single-tooth implant has three parts:

  • A titanium implant screw surgically inserted into the jaw
  • A metal alloy extension post
  • A realistic porcelain crown

During a simple in-office procedure, the implant is placed in the jawbone under the gumline. After closing the site with sutures, the patient goes home. As the site heals, the implant bonds to the jaw through osseointegration. The jaw bone literally melds to the titanium implant, creating a secure foundation that only strengthens with time. Osseointegration is unique to dental implants and cannot be achieved with traditional partial dentures or bridgework.

When the site has healed properly, the dentist attaches an extension post and a crown to finish the restoration. The patient enjoys natural oral function and maintains the prosthetic tooth with simple daily flossing and daily brushing, twice a day, as recommended by the American Dental Association. This everyday routine, combined with check-ups and cleanings at Reston Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, keeps the implant site free of harmful plaque and tartar, avoiding gum disease and an implant site infection called peri-implantitis.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

If your jaw bone is dense enough and your oral and overall health is good, you are likely a candidate for implants. Dr. Neshat or Dr. Jang will do a thorough oral exam, including X-rays, to ensure the procedure can succeed. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry says dental implants are highly successful and the procedure is straightforward and predictable for the healthy patient.

Additionally, if you have lost several or all of your teeth to gum disease, decay or oral trauma, your dentist may place multiple implants to support bridgework or full or partial dentures.
