Tooth loss happens more frequently than you might think. In fact, millions of Americans suffer from tooth loss, whether due to traumatic injury, disease, or general decay. When you lose a tooth, it can compromise the form and function of your smile and potentially sap your self-confidence, and when left untreated, tooth loss can lead to the degradation of the underlying bone tissue.
One of the best ways to address tooth loss is with dental implants. At Virginia Oral, Facial & Implant Surgery, we have experience replacing lost teeth with implant procedures using state-of-the-art technology on the market. Contact us to learn more about getting dental implants in McLean, VA.
Traditional Dental Implants
A dental implant is a tiny titanium screw, which is placed into the jaw where it functions as an artificial tooth root. The implant fuses with the surrounding bone, ensuring it is steady and secure. An artificial replacement crown is positioned on top, restoring your smile both in function and in aesthetics.
All-on-4 represents an advanced dental implant procedure, which allows a patient to replace their entire smile with as few as four total dental implants. Whereas a traditional dental implant approach is more flexible for variable amounts of lost teeth, All-on-4 gives patients who exclusively need a full arch restoration a more effective and efficient replacement option with implants. We are pleased to offer All-on-4 here at our practice.
