Are you having trouble speaking or chewing due to missing teeth? Do you feel self-conscious about your smile? If so, it may be time to see a dentist for affordable implant surgery. This effective procedure is offered by our general dentists.

What Problem is a Dental Implant Used to Correct?

Dental implants in Fairfax are replacements for teeth lost due to decay, injury, or gum disease. The dental implants procedure involves the placement of titanium posts inside the jawbone. These posts act as the tooth root and support a natural-looking crown. There are two different types of implants: Endosteal, which are placed inside the jaw, and subperiosteal, which are used when the patient’s jawbone cannot support implants. This type is inserted between the gums and jaw.

How is the Dental Implants Cost Determined?

Several factors determine the dental implants cost, including the type of implant chosen and the materials used to fabricate the crown. If any surgeries are necessary before you receive the implants, those will also factor into the cost. During your visit, one of our dentists will evaluate your case and provide an estimate of the total cost. You’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you have regarding payment, insurance, or the dental implants procedure itself.

Do Dental Plans Offer Dental Implants Insurance?

Unfortunately, many dental plans do not provide dental implants insurance. However, it’s important to note that obtaining affordable dental implants is possible with flexible financing. We’re committed to helping patients of all budgets receive the treatment they need. Give us a call to learn more about our budget-friendly dental implants in Fairfax.

What Happens During the Dental Implants Procedure?

Receiving implants usually involves multiple steps, which may vary depending on whether your implants are endosteal or subperiosteal. The first part of the procedure involves the placement of the implants. Once the implants are seated inside the jaw, they will form a secure bond with your gums. This creates a stable base for the natural-looking crown, which is placed at the second appointment. Keep in mind that it can take several months for your jaw to fully heal after implant surgery.

Why Should I Get Implants?

Dental implants in Fairfax offer several benefits, making the investment worthwhile for many patients. Here are some of the advantages offered by implant surgery:

  • A permanent, beautiful smile
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Better oral hygiene
  • Improved speech and chewing ability
  • Preservation of adjacent teeth

What Types of Implants Are Available?

Our practice provides several types of implants, each with their own unique benefits. Here are some of the available options:

  • Implant-Supported Bridge: This appliance is similar to a dental bridge. However, it is supported by implants instead of natural teeth. With this appliance, one implant is placed in the jawbone for each missing tooth. Then, the dentist connects the crowns to create one piece.
  • Mini Dental Implants: An alternative to traditional implants, mini implants are often recommended for incisors and other smaller, narrower teeth.
  • Single-Tooth Implants: A single implant can be used in patients missing one or more teeth. These implants are surgically positioned inside the jaw, where they will fuse to the bone and serve as a new “foot” for the tooth crown.

How Do You Care for Dental Implants?

One of the key advantages of our affordable dental implants is that they’re easy to care for. In fact, you’ll brush, floss, and use mouthwash just as you would for natural teeth. If you experience soreness following the procedure, over-the-counter pain medication can be used to help you feel more comfortable.

Am I a Good Candidate for Implant Dentistry?

Only an experienced dentist can determine whether dental implants are right for you. Restoring your smile is possible – give us a call to learn more about this confidence-boosting procedure. We’ll answer your questions about treatment, insurance, or the dental implants cost.

How Long Does a Dental Implant Last?

Deciding to undergo implant surgery is an important medical and financial choice, and because of this, many patients want to ensure their implants last as long as possible. With proper care and oral hygiene, implants can last for several decades up to a lifetime.
