Your Dental Implant Procedure

Dental Implants in Fairfax

Are you considering dental implants in Fairfax, VA? Most dentists will agree that dental implants are the best way to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants don’t just complete your smile, they also provide a long-lasting solution for missing teeth that most closely mimic your natural teeth.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Have you ever wondered about the dental implant procedure itself? Many patients do. Dental implants sound like serious business, but most patients report having very little discomfort and that they heal very quickly. When under the care of an experienced dentist, dental implants are routine, but life changing procedures.

First, we determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. We do this by evaluating your bone levels and your oral health. If you do qualify, we will schedule a surgery where your implant is placed in your bone. This procedure actually cause very little discomfort – usually just some minor gum soreness. 

Waiting is the hardest part! We need to give you enough time for the dental implant to integrate with your natural bone. This usually takes about 3-4 months. This is the magical part of dental implants! Once integration occurs, your dental implant provides the same stability as your natural tooth and allows you to have a diet with no restrictions.

After healing is complete, we can create your custom dental crown. Your crown will match your natural teeth, so it blends in perfectly. We will design it and make sure that it is both strong and esthetic. We will mount your implant crown to your dental implant, completing your smile.
