Dental Implants in Leesburg, Virginia

A missing tooth does not have to affect you for the rest of your life. Dental implants are a great option to replace a missing tooth and give you a reason to smile. At Loudoun Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we can offer you either Endosteal Implants or All-on-4 Implants, depending on your situation. To find out more about how dental implants can benefit you, call us for a chat today.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a way of replacing one or more missing teeth. A metal post will be surgically inserted into your jaw, onto which a custom-made prosthetic tooth will be attached. Your new implant will be extremely secure and durable, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence again.

A dental implant is a permanent solution to your missing tooth, and no one will be able to tell that you have had work done. At Loudoun Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, our dentists have a strong focus on providing high-quality dental implants to our patients, meaning you can choose us for your dental implants with confidence.

What Are My Options for Dental Implants?

Depending on your specific needs, we can offer you either endosteal or All-on-4 implants.

Endosteal implants are the most common type of implant and are inserted directly into your jawbone. The type of endosteal implant that your dentist chooses for you will depend on the quality and amount of bone that you have in your jaw.

All-on-4 implants are a type of full-mouth implant that offers a great alternative to dentures if you are missing a full row of teeth. Four dental implants will be placed into your jaw, onto which a set of natural-looking replacement teeth will be placed.

Does It Hurt to Get a Dental Implant?

All of our dentists are strongly committed to patient comfort when you are receiving treatment with us. Ensuring that your experiences with us are as positive as they can be is a cornerstone of our patient care. While swelling and pain are a natural part of the healing process following a dental implant surgery, your dentist will discuss aftercare and pain management in detail with you during your appointment. Be sure to follow our instructions and take time off from work or school for a comfortable recovery.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you are missing teeth and are searching for a permanent and natural-looking way to restore your smile, you may be an excellent candidate for dental implants. When you visit us for your consultation, your dentist will discuss your expectations with you and perform a thorough examination to determine if implants are the right option for you.

For the best possible results, you need to be free of periodontal disease and have great general oral health. You will also need to have healthy jawbones and gums, as your implant is placed into your jaw.

Types of Dental Implants We Offer

Benefits of a fixed bridge on implants

When all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the best permanent solution

Before dental implants, there was no fixed solution available for people who lost all their teeth. Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable and high esthetic solution.

  • Lets you eat and function like having natural teeth
  • A solid, stable solution that will serve you for life
  • Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss
Treatment

The treatment procedure and number of visits is largely dependent on the specific conditions. But all in all, 8-10 visits should be enough to have a fixed bridge installed. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated.

Benefits with fixed bridge on implants:

In this case, when replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative. Traditional dentures can't offer the same stability or function.

Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.

  • The only fixed alternative in this situation.
  • A stable, secure solution that lets you eat what you want
  • Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss
Treatment

After the initial examination, you can expect 4-5 additional visits until the final fixed bridge is permanently attached. It is normal to experience some minor bruising and swelling in the gum and soft tissue afterwards. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary painkiller. You should expect to be able to work the next day.

Benefits of an all-ceramic crown on implant:

When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

In this case, a so-called one-piece implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single unit, resulting in immediately full functioning teeth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.

  • Immediately functioning teeth
  • Excellent esthetic result
  • Life long, stable solution
Treatment

This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.

What are the advantages of Mini Dental Implants placement?

MDIs are a true innovation for people who are reluctant to have invasive dental surgery and for denture wearers. One significant advantage MDIs have over full implants is that they offer a viable treatment choice for patients who have experienced extensive bone loss. Depending on the quality and density of jawbone available at the implant site, four of these mini implants may be implanted at one time. Unlike full implants, MDIs don’t require invasive surgery, which makes MDIs a gentler option. MDIs also minimize cost. Full-sized implants can be expensive to place, especially if many visits are required. The most common use for MDIs is to stabilize a lower denture; however, they can be placed anywhere in the mouth.

Here are some of the other advantages associated with MDIs:

  • Better smelling breath
  • Clearer speech
  • Easier chewing and biting
  • Easier cleaning
  • Firmer denture fit
  • High success rate. Less discomfort
  • No cutting or sutures
  • No need for adhesives or messy bonding agents
  • No rotting food beneath the denture
  • No slipping, wobbling or discomfort
  • Permanent results
  • Quick treatment time
  • Reduced costs
How are mini dental implants placed?

The whole mini dental implant placement procedure takes approximately one hour. Generally, in the case of lower jaw implants, four MDIs will be placed about 5mm apart. Prior to inserting MDIs, the dentist will use many diagnostic and planning tools to find the optimal place to implant them.

Why should I choose 3i dental implants?

There are a wide variety of dental implants in the marketplace, but 3i have an almost unparalleled success rate. Almost 98% of 3i implants are fitted successfully and last for a lifetime. 3i implants contain a unique feature, which is embedded in the surface of the screw. Implant screws made by other companies are sprayed with calcium phosphate to enhance the bone integration process. However, 3i screws actually contain calcium phosphate, which means that delamination is less likely to occur.

Additionally, the cone-shaped 3i screw adds precision to the placement of implants and ensures that the final prosthesis is comfortable and can withstand pressure.

Here are some of the other benefits associated with 3i implants:

  • Better oral health
  • Higher success rate
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Long-lasting results
  • Multiple 3i implants can be placed during a visit
  • Natural-looking implants
  • No adhesives or mess
  • Prevention of bone loss and gum recession
  • Sturdy, functional prosthetic teeth
How are 3i dental implants placed?

The procedure for placing 3i dental implants is similar to many other implant procedures. It is usually performed in two short visits, the first visit being typically an hour in length and the second taking around thirty minutes.

After the dentist has analyzed the X-rays and diagnostic results, the implant root can be inserted. This procedure will be performed under local anesthetic, unless another type of sedation is preferred.

The staff is friendly and have been gentle on my kids and I. The hygienists are clear when a service will cost extra with my insurance, so there are no surprises. Good folks.
