The Advantages of Dental Implants

If you’re among the millions of Americans who have lost one of their natural teeth, dental implants from Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria are an ideal solution.

Dental implants have many advantages over other tooth-replacement options. One of the biggest advantages is that implants not only support lifelike artificial teeth, they support the health of the jaw bone itself.

What Is A Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium post that is placed into your jaw, where, inside of a few months’ time, it fuses with the bone itself.

Implants may go in the upper or lower jaw. One implant can support one artificial tooth, and several of them can support a dental bridge, or even a full dental arch.

An unfortunate consequence of losing teeth is that the bone around the lost tooth begins to recede. This can result in a sunken appearance in the face. But because implants are physically attached to the bone they function like a tooth root to stimulate growth and prevent the loss of bone mass.

Advanced Technology

Dental implants don’t affect the surrounding teeth, either. In the case of a bridge, for example, each neighboring tooth must be ground into shape in order to accommodate the bridge. Additionally, with a bridge, the bone will most likely deteriorate.

Dental implants from Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria are among the most advanced technology modern dentistry has to offer. We’ve placed them in patients from Mt. Vernon and Alexandria, who also come to our office for other restorative dentistry options. Contact us today!
