About Dental Implants - Annandale, VA

The most natural alternative to replacing your original teeth

For The First Time in Decades, I Can Chew Normally Thanks To My Dental Implants” -Gerald

What Are Dental Implants?

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.

How Dental Implants Work

Getting dental implants begins with a consultation. If you’re a candidate for treatment, we’ll need to complete a comprehensive exam and take a 3D CBCT scan, which allows us to digitally map where the implants are to be placed. After surgery and recovery, we install the fixed restoration (such as a custom crown, bridge, or implant supported denture.) Our doctors chooses to use Straumann implants for their compatibility with our patients’ diverse reconstructive needs. We extend sedation dentistry as an option for anyone that prefers to “tune out” the process on the date of surgery.

Dental Implants vs. Bridges or Removable Dentures
