The best solution to missing teeth offered from modern dentistry. Everybody has a unique smile, and having a full set of teeth can help you show off your smile. Not only is it healthy to have a full set of teeth for eating, biting, and speaking properly, it also could provide a huge boost of confidence and self-esteem. Dental implants are surgically placed where the missing tooth once was, but the procedure is almost completely painless. An implant is just a small synthetic post used as a substitute for the root of the missing tooth. It is made of metal, usually titanium, to ensure durability.  The implant is inserted into the bone and left to integrate. Next the abutment is connected before placing the permanent crown. This allows for the implant to integrate with the bone. Once that is done, the permanent crown is attached to the implant and the procedure is complete. Local anesthetic ensures a painless operation, so there’s nothing to be afraid of. Not getting an implant for a missing tooth can have its consequences. Your bite can be affected by improper lineup which can cause bite problems. Missing teeth can also affect your diet as it can prevent you from eating certain foods. Don’t let missing teeth bring your smile down, call 703-333-5105 if you have any questions or come by the office on 6377 Little River Trnpk. and Dr. Truong will see if you’re eligible for a dental implant.

Implant Surgery Guide In order to ensure the correct placement of the implant fixture into the bone, it is recommended that the patient undergoes a CBCT scan. This X-ray produces a 3D image of the entire mouth including nerves, sinuses, tissues, blood vessels, and bones. The results of the scan will be sent to the lab where the doctor of the lab will discuss with the treating dentist as to which size is best suitable for the available bone. This will guide the drilling of the implant fixture and ensure correct placement into the remaining bone as well as ensuring there is no accidental penetration of the nerve, bone, tissue or the sinus floor.
