Restorative Dentist Offering Dental Implants in Washington DC
Tooth Replacement with Implant Dentistry
Out of all the dental injuries a person can suffer over a lifetime, losing or more teeth is widely considered the most devastating, both for your oral health and your self-image. Having unsightly gaps in your smile can make it hard for you to interact with your friends and peers at all, much less perform to the best of your ability at work. Even worse, tooth loss can often cause your other teeth to twist and shift in an attempt to fill the gap, resulting in an increased risk of gum disease and even additional tooth loss. While methods like bridges or dentures may seem like tried-and-true restorative solutions, many patients find themselves unhappy with how bulky and unstable they can be. Isn't there a sturdier, more natural solution? At Aesthetic & Family Dentistry of Washington, we're happy to be the ones to tell you that there is. Dental implants are relatively new, revolutionary tooth replacement method that can completely revitalize your smile, giving you back the stability and beauty you've been missing.
While most tooth replacement options only rest atop the gums, dental implants stand out by replicating the entire structure of the tooth, including the root. First, Dr. Obholz will recommend a trust oral surgeon to you, who will insert a small titanium post into the socket of the missing tooth. Our team will work closely with this professional in order to ensure you receive the unique, comfortable care you're used to. Then, once an appropriate amount of time has passed for the post to integrate with your bone tissue, you'll return to our Washington, DC office where we'll place a beautiful, custom-made crown atop it, leaving you with a rejuvenated look.
Dental implants are very versatile in that they can also be used to anchor dentures or bridges for enhanced stability. Be sure to ask Dr. Obholz and the rest of our team about any concerns you may have; we'll work hard to find the tooth replacement option that will best fit your lifestyle and budget.
