What Are Dental Implants & How Do They Work?
Dental implants are titanium posts that act as replacement tooth roots when surgically inserted into the jaw. The titanium materials in implants are body-safe, allowing them to fuse naturally with living tissue and bone. This bonding process is called osseointegration, and it is vital for promoting lasting and successful treatment.
Dental implants typically consist of three parts. These include the implant post, the abutment, and the restoration. The post serves as the tooth root, extending just above the gumline. The abutment is the piece connecting your implant and restoration. Your new tooth or teeth can include a custom crown, bridge or denture restoration. These prosthetics are specifically designed to match the shape, size, and shine of natural teeth, blending seamlessly within your smile.
Who Can Get Dental Implants?
Adults and seniors in good oral and overall health typically make excellent candidates for dental implants. There needs to be optimal gum health and jawbone density to ensure successful treatment.
Gums: Pink and firm gums are common indicators of healthy gum tissue. Because implant treatment requires the post to be inserted into and rest within the gums, tissues must be free of inflammation, disease, or infection.
Jawbone: The density of the jawbone significantly influences the longevity and success of dental implant treatment. The jaw needs to be healthy and full enough to support implants for years, often decades. If it is too thin or weak, Dr. Zarrinfar can perform a bone graft procedure to bolster jawbone health and volume.
What is a Bone Graft?
Dental implants require the jaw to be in good health and fullness. A bone graft is a surgical procedure designed to restore jawbone density and your chances for successful treatment. Bone grafting involves our dentist taking bone material from another area of the body or an artificial source and adding into the parts of the jaw that require implant placement. The material fuses with the jaw, renewing its health and mass.
Advanced Dental Technologies to Help You Qualify
Dr. Zarrinfar and our team will help you qualify for implants. Our dentist uses state-of-the-art dental technology to diagnose your situation accurately and determine your needs.
Digital and panoramic x-rays produce precise, 360-degree images of everything from your teeth and gums to jaw and facial structures. With intraoral cameras, we examine every inch of your smile, displaying what’s going on inside your smile in real time. These advanced tools provide us with valuable information about your oral health, which we use to ensure accurate treatment planning.
What Does Getting Dental Implants Involve?
Getting dental implants often involves multiple steps as the process is heavily tailored to your needs.
Treatment can also take six months to a year to complete. Your treatment will include a detailed consultation, exam, planning, and undergoing a bone graft if needed.
Dr. Zarrinfar typically begins treatment with a thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. This appointment may include reviewing your medical and oral history, as well as asking questions about your diet and lifestyle. This background information is valuable for discovering any influential factors that could have impacted your dental health, resulting in your tooth loss.
Once we determine that implants are the best option, we work closely with you to design a treatment plan specifically personalized to you. We also strive to keep you updated at every step. Our dentist has the knowledge, credentials, and skill to place your implants with precision. Dr. Zarrinfar also uses lasers to help with gum tissue management during placement. Combining experience and technology promotes better placement and more accurate positioning, producing successful and lasting results.
Healing can take up to six months. Once healed, our team invites you back to our Purcellville office to place your custom restoration. Depending on your needs, we can provide you with a new crown, bridge, or denture to complete your smile.
How Many Teeth Can Dental Implants Replace?
When supported by dental implants, our restorations can replace a single tooth to a full arch. At Main Street Family Dentistry P.C, we believe in only providing restorations made of safe, beautiful, and durable materials.
Our available implant restorations include:
- Crowns that are designed to replace a single missing tooth using one implant post.
- Bridges that restore several teeth missing in a row using two implant posts on either side of the gap.
- Partial dentures that replace multiple teeth lost throughout the smile.
- Complete dentures that can restore all teeth missing in the upper or lower jaws, or both. Our dentures can replace an entire smile completely using six to eight implants.
What Benefits Can I Expect from Dental Implants?
Dental implants are unlike any other tooth placement option available. This is because they become part of your jawbone while replacing the entire structure of a missing tooth. Implants are often considered the ideal choice for treating tooth loss as they are the closest thing to natural and healthy teeth.
Because they replace the roots and crowns of teeth, implants also restore essential stimulation to the jawbone, renewing comfortable chewing and speaking. They can last years, decades, or even a lifetime with proper oral hygiene and care.
