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 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.

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 HealthBecause 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 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.
