Improve your quality of life with implant dentistry
If you are missing a tooth, our dentist can provide you with a dental implant to replace it and restore your oral health and smile. Implants may be used to replace a single tooth or a full arch of teeth. We invite you to contact us at 703-485-4534 to schedule your consultation with Dr. John A. Marino and find out if you are a candidate for dental implants in Annandale, Virginia.
Dental implants are intended to be a permanent solution for missing teeth, and when properly cared for with good oral hygiene can last a lifetime. Implants replace both the root and the crown of your teeth to provide you with a highly stable restoration that will help you improve and maintain your oral health and quality of life.
Implants consist of two main parts, an implant post and a prosthetic tooth replacement. The implant post is typically made of titanium, and is surgically inserted into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This implant post provides a foundation for the replacement tooth, and works just like your original tooth root to stimulate your supporting bone and keep it healthy and stable. After your implant placement procedure, there will be a period of healing in order for the implant post to integrate with your jawbone.
Following this healing period, our dentist will work with you to complete your treatment with a prosthetic tooth replacement. Depending on the number of teeth missing and your individual needs, this replacement may be a single crown, ad bridge or a complete or partial denture. Once the replacement tooth or teeth are placed atop the implant post, your treatment is complete and you will once again be able to smile, speak and chew with confidence.
Implants are the ideal choice for replacing teeth and preventing the bone loss associated with missing teeth, traditional bridgework and dentures. Implant dentistry works to improve the quality of your life by restoring your oral function as well as your smile.
