Tooth Replacement with Dental Implants in DC
If you lost one or more permanent teeth due to injury or decay, Dr. Yelena Obholz strongly recommends implants as the superior reconstructive solution due to their permanence, durability, and aesthetic quality. Made from special titanium, they offer patients a 90-95% success rate and a renewed ability to eat, speak, and smile with complete confidence. Helping you get back to the ideal level of oral health and happiness you deserve is our top priority here in Washington, DC.
The Dental Implant Process
The secret behind the incredible success of implants is that they replicate the entire structure of your tooth instead of just the crown (the white, visible portion) like other, more traditional options. While unseen beneath the gumline, your tooth root serves a vital function by stimulating the jawbone and keeping it full and healthy. Without it, patients can experience an increased risk of tooth loss and a hunched facial appearance due to deterioration.
Once our team has determined that you’re a viable candidate for the implant procedure, Dr. Obholz will recommend a trusted, nearby specialist to handle the surgical placement of your implants, working closely with them to ensure that your care goes smoothly. Then, once a period of healing has passed for your new implant(s) and jawbone to form a strong bond, you’ll return to Aesthetic & Family Dentistry of Washington so that we can design a brand-new, high-quality restoration to sit on top, completing your new and improved look.
While all-ceramic dental crowns are used for restoring single-tooth implants, patients in need of more extensive replacement may find that this method becomes too expensive when expanded to include several teeth. Thankfully, implants can also stabilize prosthetics, giving them a sturdy foundation to snap onto. If you’ve struggled with loose or uncomfortable dentures in the past, this could be the ideal solution for you.
No one should have to struggle with tooth loss.
