Are Dentures the Only Answer for Extensive Tooth Loss?

Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime, and with proper home care and regular checkups at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria, they can. But sometimes things go wrong, in spite of everyone’s best efforts. Dental implants are an ideal solution for anyone who loses one or more of their natural teeth.

Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone. Once they do they become rock-solid supports for one or more replacement teeth.

Multiple implants, usually four, can support a full dental arch. They have a number of advantages over ordinary dentures:

  • Increased Stability: Because they are attached to titanium posts that have fused with the jaw, people have much greater biting and chewing power.
  • Natural Appearance: They look more like natural teeth, and are easier to care for.
  • Durability: Because they are physically attached to the jaw, implants are long-lasting.
  • Prevent Bone Recession: With traditional dentures, the bone around missing tooth roots begin to deteriorate. The titanium posts replace some of the tooth roots, so the bone is preserved.

Dental implants can transform your life, and they are among the restorative dentistry procedures available at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria. Patients come to our office from Mt. Vernon and Alexandria for implants and family dentistry. Contact us today!
