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?
Implants Protect the Jaw
Traditional dental 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.

5-Star Reviews "...they take the time to get to know people personally"
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.
Always have good care. Staff are all so friendly and they take the time to get to know people personally. So nice to walk in for a cleaning and have them remember our conversation from 6 months prior.View On Google
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?
Whether you are missing one tooth or several, 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.
Looking for a Perfectionist?
Schedule a Consultation with Dr. Han
Implant planning and surgical placement of dental implants is technically challenging and requires considerable training and experience to do well.
Dr. Han at Smile Designer of Leesburg is committed to perfection. He is a board-certified implant surgeon and has years of experience successfully placing dental implants. In addition to hands-on experience, he uses a cone-beam CT scanner with interactive planning software to enhance the treatment planning process.
Then for the actual implant placement, he creates a custom surgical guide that precisely fits the patient’s mouth. This helps ensure implants are positioned at the optimal angle and depth for long-lasting results.
You Can’t Find a Better or More Caring Dentist and Staff
I’ve had many dental problems the past 2 years with old crowns/teeth breaking off at the gum line and Dr Han has been a godsend. He’s done multiple extractions, implants, a sinus lift, and implant crowns and he’s the best periodontist I’ve ever had. His staff is awesome too for everything from cleaning and fillings to Kim’s office management. You can’t find a better or more caring dentist and staff. Also, they’ve always terrific treating my 60 year old Downs Syndrome brother for his dental care.View More Google Reviews

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 HealthBecause implant placement requires oral surgery, you will need to be healthy enough to undergo the dental 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 DensityTo 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.

"You Are In Good Hands"
I am a student at VCU, and while I was visiting my family in Leesburg I needed a crown. I was able to get an appointment with Dr. Nguyen very quickly and received the crown the same day as the examination. I couldn't believe how quick and comfortable the whole process was. I am quite sensitive to pain, but there was no pain whatsoever. The injection has always been the scariest part for me but I felt nothing and was numbed up in no time. Dr. Nguyen explained to me what she was going to do so it helps me feel less anxious. Her assistant (Kim) was very welcoming and funny. I had a great experience and wish I actually live in the Leesburg area so I can keep going back to them.View More Google Reviews

We Offer Same-Day Teeth
No one wants to be without teeth. Not even for a day. That’s why we strive to have everyone leave implant treatment with a smile they can take confidence in, even as they wait for their final restoration.
In addition to providing temporary restorations when we can, in many cases, we may be able to offer bone and gum grafts at the same time as implant placement to reduce your trips to the practice. We can also often perform extractions and place implants in the same appointment. Once the implants have fused with the bone, you will return to have your permanent restoration placed.
