Losing one or more of your natural teeth impacts your smile, and your ability to bite and chew. But with dental implants from Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria, you can regain your smile and the ability to eat just about anything.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are anchored into your jaw. They are solid foundations for artificial teeth. Because they are physically attached to your jaw, they also prevent the loss of bone that usually accompanies tooth loss.
If you’ve lost one or more teeth, a conventional dental bridge or dentures are certainly better than nothing. But because they are not solidly anchored to your jaw, they do not provide full biting and chewing function. This is, of course, a major drawback.
This is what makes dental implants so brilliant. They don’t look any different than natural teeth, and better still, they feel and function the same. Once the implants are in place and the jaw has fully healed, most patients report full chewing power. That means they can enjoy just about any food they choose.
At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria we provide single-tooth dental implants and implant-supported dentures. They look great! People from Mt. Vernon and Alexandria trust us with their dental health! Contact us today!
