Many people have had a big boost in self-confidence after replacing missing teeth with dental implants from The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria.
We love helping people improve their quality of life. With a new smile, they feel better about themselves. They feel more comfortable in public. They socialize more often.
That might be thought of as a bonus, though. Dental implants are lifelike tooth replacements. They look and function just like natural teeth. With a dental implant, you’ll regain normal biting and chewing ability.
Some three million Americans are already enjoying the benefits of single and multiple dental implant restorations. Here is some essential information:
- Replacement root. A dental implant is a replacement tooth root for a missing tooth. They are usually made out of titanium, a lightweight metal that is highly compatible with bone.
- Bone stimulaltion. The artificial tooth attached to the actual implant gives you back your smile. But just as important, the implant stimulates the bone to prevent recession.
- Healing. It usually takes two to three months for an implant to fully integrate with the jaw bone.
- Single and Multiple. One dental implant can support one artificial tooth. Several implants can support a partial or full set of dentures.
No wonder dental implants have been called one of the most important advances in dentistry. People throughout the area come to The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria for a full range of restorative dentistry options. Call for an appointment today!
