When you are missing a tooth or teeth, you might feel self-conscious about your smile. Missing teeth can also affect your ability to talk or chew. At Leesburg Spa Dentistry, Dr. Saxena offers state-of-the-art dental implants to replace your missing teeth and create a natural-looking smile. If you live in or around Leesburg, Virginia, call or schedule a consultation online today to find out if dental implants are the right tooth replacement option for you.
A dental implant replaces a missing tooth or teeth with a titanium post that is implanted in your jaw that acts as a tooth root for a crown or other prosthetic dental device that replaces the visible part of your missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants are available to replace single teeth, or you can fix dentures or dental bridges with implants. Dr. Saxena uses Zimmer dental implants that include tapered posts to fit securely in your jaw.
In addition to restoring your smile with natural-looking prosthetic teeth, dental implants also protect your overall oral health and the integrity of your jaw. The roots of your teeth stimulate bone growth in your jaw, and when you lose a tooth, your jaw may become weak. The titanium post of a dental implant encourages bone growth, just like a natural tooth does.
Dental implants also help keep your other teeth in their correct positions by stopping them from moving into the available space in your jaw.
Dr. Saxena offers comprehensive consultations and exams to identify the best dental treatments and devices to replace your missing teeth.
If you’re in good general health and have sufficient bone density and strength in your jaw, dental implants may be an excellent choice to replace your missing teeth. Dr. Saxena provides bone grafting treatments to build strength in your jaw when necessary.
Dr. Saxena installs dental implants in three stages.
