Benefits of Dental Implants

"I am not good at giving comments. But this is the dentist you must go to. Work he did in my mouth some twenty some years back is still fantastic. The staff is as good as the leader. The man is a perfectionist and in this field that is what you want right, I mean Rye?"

Because of the numerous benefits of this remarkable treatment, our dental implant patients throughout the Northern Virginia and Oakton region report implant dentistry has restored them to better health and a more active lifestyle. Dental implants are permanently anchored into the jaw, which means they feel just like natural teeth and won’t shift out of place. What’s more, dental implants are easy to maintain; they can be cleaned and flossed just like real teeth.

Another benefit of restoring smiles with dental implants is the prevention of chronic jaw pain. Dental implants keep teeth from drifting into the gap of a missing tooth, eliminating headaches and jaw pain due to teeth shifting. While dentures may still be the best choice for some patients, the lasting relief afforded by dental implants is incomparable. Dental implant technology has become incredibly reliable and has been available for more than 30 years. Today, reliability is at 98 percent.

Although dental implants have been in use for over thirty years, revolutionary advances in the past ten years are changing the landscape of implant dentistry. Dental implants can improve your appearance, speech, comfort, oral health and self esteem in as little as one appointment. Our patients report dental implants result in improvements to eating too. What’s more, tooth replacement techniques which depend on anchoring a bridge to surrounding teeth are no longer necessary, so those teeth need not be compromised.
