About Dental Implants:
Although dental implants have been around for a long time, there are new innovative ways to place them in your mouth. Newer techniques involve fusing the jawbone to create a very natural look when the implants are placed. Dental implants mimic your natural tooth structure which preserves and stimulates the jawbone. Dental implants have a 98% proven success rate. Furthermore, if you have great overall and oral health, dental implants can be loaded the same day. Otherwise, an acrylic temporary crown will be placed and at a second appointment, the final crown will be loaded. The best part is that dental implants are done under an IV sedation by a licensed anesthesiologist to aid with discomfort and provide a pain-free procedure. Additionally, benefits of dental implants can include:
- Permanent tooth replacement
- Solid, stable biting function
- Natural looking appearance
- Ability to be cleaned like natural teeth
- Same day placement
- Preserve jawbone health
- Natural facial contour
- Confidence booster
Our Dental Implant Options:
Dr. A. Garrett Gouldin and his amazing team at Northern Virginia Periodontics in Alexandria and Falls Church, VA, uses advanced technology throughout each step of the procedure to ensure your smile is as precise as possible. The team uses Vatech Digital X Rays to capture panoramic images to determine the density, height and width of the bone to precisely plan the dental implant procedure. They also use Bone Morphogenic Proteins (BMP) to signal the body to grow new bones and tissues during the dental implant surgery.
The team uses Platelet Rich Growth Factor and Platelet Rich Fibrin techniques to aid in tissue regrowth, which reduces discomfort and improves the healing process after the dental implant surgery. Densah Bur technology is used in place of a drilling system to capture and place bone particles into the wall of the prepared site that normally would be suctioned away. Using advanced technology affords several benefits to patients, including offering minimally invasive procedures, increased precision and accuracy, and more efficient, streamlined care. Fewer dental appointments are needed, and faster healing and recovery may occur as a result of utilizing advanced technologies.
