Dental Implants

Traditional bridges and dentures are trusted ways to replace a missing tooth or teeth but they do not prevent bone loss.

With dental implants, Dr. Daniel Han at Smile Designer of Leesburg can secure your restoration and keep your jawbone healthy.

Why Do We Recommend Dental Implant Treatment?

Implant Are the Most Durable Form of Restoration

If you practice good oral hygiene and attend regular check-ups at our office, your implants could last for decades. We can also evaluate the integrity of your crown, bridge, or denture during these visits and recommend any repairs or replacements. 

Implants Protect the Jaw

Traditional restorations only replace the visible portion of a tooth above the gum line. Meanwhile, dental implants replace the tooth roots, significantly improving your jawbone density and oral health. When implants replace these structures, the tissues in the jaw remain stimulated, preventing atrophy and bone recession. 

Implants Provide Security

Traditional dentures are notorious for slipping out of place at critical moments, like speaking in public or playing with your grandchildren. Implants securely anchor your denture in place so you can smile openly and speak with confidence.

Always super nice staff and great work. They never rush and are super informative with any advice and recommendations. 
The office was spotless and they really care about following social distancing rules. I had no concern once so ever during my visit. 
I actually don’t mind going to the dentist.

I'm embarrassed about my tooth loss...

Treatment for Missing Teeth Is Incredibly Common

But can implants help in my particular case?

Why Choose Implants over Traditional Restorations?

For patients with any degree of tooth loss, dental implants are widely considered the closest thing to natural teeth. They mimic the function of tooth roots while delivering the stimulation the jawbone needs to stay healthy, strong, and dense. Unlike traditional restorations, dental implants prevent jawbone recession and help you keep a youthful, defined facial structure.

This sounds great, but do I even qualify for dental implants?

Requirements for Patients Considering Dental Implants

Good Oral Health

Before recommending implant treatment, our dentists will evaluate your smile and identify any oral health issues like gum disease, cavities, or infection, which could interfere with implant treatment. Fortunately, we can treat virtually all of these issues in-office to give you a healthy foundation.

Good Overall Health

Because implant placement requires oral surgery, you will need to be healthy enough to undergo the procedure. This means smokers will need to stop smoking, as smoking increases the likelihood of implant failure. If you are diabetic, you will need to have stable glucose levels prior to dental implant surgery.

Good Jawbone Density

To ensure long-lasting, successful results, implants must be placed in healthy, dense jawbone tissue. If you have some degree of jawbone recession, we may recommend bone augmentation prior to implant placement. Patients whose implants are placed in grafted tissue typically experience similar success rates to those with implants placed in non-grafted bone tissue.

Preparatory Procedures

Some patients require preparatory treatment in order to become good candidates for dental implants. Dr. Han can provide procedures such as extractions, bone grafts, sinus lifts, or gum surgery for patients that require prerequisite treatments.

Implant Surgery
 

Once you are fully healed from preparatory dental procedures, Dr. Han can perform your implant surgery at our Leesburg, VA, office. Dr. Han will create small incisions in your gums to place the titanium implant posts. Thanks to careful planning using our cone beam computed tomography scanner and various sedation options, Dr. Han will complete your dental implant surgery precisely and with minimal discomfort.

Healing Period

During a healing period of four to six months, the titanium implant posts will fuse with the bone during a process known as osseointegration. It is important to maintain exceptional oral hygiene during this period of time to prevent infections and other complications.

Abutments and Impressions

Once osseointegration is complete, the doctor will secure abutments to the titanium implant posts. We will take impressions and digital scans of your mouth to craft a custom restoration for the affected tooth or teeth. 

Dental Restoration

Our trusted lab crafts the permanent restoration out of your materials of choice. When they are ready, the dentist secures the crown, bridge, or denture and checks the positioning and fit. After making any necessary adjustments, the results should look and feel just like your natural teeth.
