Change Your Life In 4 Steps

cosmetic dental and implants Implant-supported dentures  may sound like a dream come true: dentures that are attached to the jaw, and surpass traditional dentures in appearance and functionality. At The Mt. Vernon Cener for Dentistry in Alexandria, they are a reality!

When it comes to artificial teeth, implant-supported dentures are a whole new ballgame.

Here is the process:

1. Examination and Assessment
During your first visit, we take X-rays and assess your mouth and the condition of your teeth, gums, and jawbone.

2. Implant Placement
Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw. Implant dentures usually require four implants per arch. That is, four in the lower jaw and four in the upper.

3. Integration
What makes implants so effective is that they actually fuse with the jaw bone. It takes at least a few months for them to fully integrate, a process called osseointegration.

4. Final Restoration
Once the implants have fused they are strong enough to support the final dental arch or arches.

At The Mt. Vernon Cener for Dentistry in Alexandria we offer implant-supported dentures, and other restorative dentistry options. Call us for an appointment today!
