What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are prosthetic dental restorations used to replace teeth lost as a result of accidental trauma, extraction, or decay. Made up of three unique components, implants are designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural tooth. As dental implants are permanently placed into the jaw, they offer patients the benefit of a long-term tooth replacement.

Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Part of the advantages of dental implant treatment is versatility. While successful implant placement into the jaw bone requires a certain amount of bone density, our Lorton oral surgeon can incorporate treatments 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 also a popular option for patients missing more than one tooth.

For these individuals, Dr. Patel strategically places multiple dental implants to support a larger restoration. With implant bridges and implant dentures provided by our Lorton oral surgeon, patients can enjoy the combined benefits of removable restorations and dental implants.

However, this operation does require time and focus. Materials, implants, crowns, and other factors make up the price that you pay.

How Do I Get a Dental Implant?

Starting with your first consultation at our Lorton-Springfield oral surgery practice, Dr. Patel uses advanced diagnostic tools to determine your teeth replacement 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 Dr. Patel to discuss treatment, restoration, and sedation options.

Implant placement surgery is a straightforward outpatient procedure. After the implant has been securely placed into the jaw, patients return to our oral surgery practice in Northern Virginia 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.

From your first consultation through final follow-up appointment, Dr. Patel is committed to helping you achieve a beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime. To learn more about dental implants in Northern Virginia, Contact Us.
