“For The First Time in Decades, I Can Chew Normally Thanks To My Dental Implants” -Gerald
A dental implant is a holistic and natural dental restoration used to replace missing teeth. Unlike other treatments that rely on natural teeth (or gum tissue) for support, dental implants become a permanent part of your smile, mimicking the design of a natural tooth root. Each biocompatible implant is set into the mouth near the area where a previous natural tooth once stood. As new bone forms around and fuses to the artificial root (osseointegration,) the implant becomes permanently integrated with your body. Implants are considerably stronger than natural teeth, making it possible for us to use them in pairs for multiple-tooth replacement. Annandale, VA periodontists, Dr. William Wang and Thomas Lin have over 20 years of experience planning and restoring dental implants, along with providing implant supportive therapies for more complex and challenging cases.
When you need to replace missing teeth, you usually have more than one option available. Two of the most common treatment choices are bridges and traditional dentures. But how do they compare to dental implants?
Periodontal disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. With a periodontist, you can stop it in its tracks.
