What is a dental implant and how does it work?

A dental implant is a bio-compatible titanium post that is surgically implanted by a dentist into the jaw bone, replacing the root of a missing tooth. When fully integrated with the bone, the dental implant will provide stability and support for a replacement tooth. A dental implant can be used to support a dental crown for a single missing tooth or a denture to replace all of your missing teeth.

Dental Implant Process

Dr. Nguyen will create a personalized treatment plan and coordinate with a local oral surgeon or periodontist who will perform the tooth implant surgery. Dr. Nguyen will complete the restoration in her Northern Virginia dental office.

Implantation: The placement of the dental implant is a simple, procedure performed in the dentist office under local anesthesia. It typically takes three to six months for the implant to heal and fully integrate with the jawbone. In some cases, Dr. Nguyen will place the permanent dental crown during this visit. Other times, a temporary crown will be placed while the implant heals.

Implant Restoration: After the healing process is complete, Dr. Nguyen will uncover the implant and attach the dental crown, bridge or denture. Your restoration will look and function the same as your natural teeth. You can brush and floss normally. Routine visits to the dentist will ensure long term health and function of the dental implant.
