Dental Implants – Virginia Beach, VA
Lifelong & Lifelike Tooth Replacements
If you have one or more teeth you need to replace, we can help you achieve great results with dental implants. As one of the most versatile restorative services currently available, dental implants can be used to support a single crown, a bridge, a partial, or a full denture. As a result, a growing number of patients are choosing dental implants over more traditional restorative services, with results that look and feel natural. Don’t let missing teeth have a negative effect on your oral health and self-confidence. Let us talk to you about treatment with dental implants.
Benefits of Dental Implants
What makes dental implants such an effective alternative to traditional bridges, partials, and dentures? It has a lot to do with the way dental implants are structured. Instead of just replacing your missing tooth (or teeth), dental implants also replace your missing tooth root(s). By mimicking this natural structure, you can look forward to enjoying stronger, more stable results than is possible with a traditional bridge, partial, or full denture. The result is a smile that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth.
The beauty of dental implants is that they can preserve and strengthen the jaw by promoting bone growth the way natural roots do. This prevents you from jawbone deterioration, additional tooth loss, and a sunken facial appearance. Plus, with proper care, dental implants can last for a lifetime!
Indications for Dental Implants
We use dental implants to replace any pattern of tooth loss—from one tooth to an entire smile. The type of restoration that you need will depend on the number of teeth that you’re missing:
Missing Single Tooth
For those missing a single tooth, we can use an implant-retained crown to restore your smile. We will match your dental crown to the rest of your teeth, giving you a seamless and beautiful replacement.
Missing Multiple Teeth
If you’re missing multiple teeth consecutively, we may recommend an implant-retained bridge. This treatment utilizes one dental implant on either side of the gap in your smile to support a dental bridge. The custom-made prosthetic literally bridges the gap in your teeth for a strong and healthy grin.
Missing All Teeth
Lastly, if you’re missing all or most of your teeth, we can combine dental implants with dentures to provide you with the most stable full smile replacement available. Using an average of 4 dental implants, we can mount a lifelike denture to restore your eating, speaking, and smiling.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
While dental implants tend to come with a higher price tag compared to other options, their longevity and lifestyle benefits may even save you money in the future. Because no two smiles are the same, the only way to receive a precise cost for your dental implants is to visit our office for a consultation. Dr. Javeed will give your mouth a thorough examination before providing a personalized treatment plan that includes the overall cost.
