Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures.

Dental implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances. The implants themselves are artificial tooth roots anchored in the gum or jawbone, on which replacement teeth are permanently secured. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore your smile! Dental implants are stable and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear at our Vienna, VA office.

Common reasons for a dental implant procedure:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues
  • Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable

There are various types of dental implant procedures, in our Vienna, VA office we provide the following implant procedures.

Single Tooth Implant

By replacing a single tooth in our Vienna, VA office and you can avoid a conventional bridge and your adjacent teeth are preserved. Single-tooth implants do not decay or need root canal treatments and have the highest long-term success rates for replacing a single tooth. Enjoy your new tooth!

All-on-4 Full Arch Implant Procedure

With the All-on-4 implant procedure, we can literally restore an entire row of teeth in just one appointment at our Vienna office. With just four to six strategically placed implants, we can use them to fully support an implant-retained denture that simply snaps onto them. All on four dentures replace all of your teeth with a permanent set of natural-feeling prosthetics that function exactly like a real set of teeth. Permanently affixed to your jaw with titanium screws, they will not shift or slip and do note put unwanted pressure on your gums. Eating and biting are much more comfortable, as they act just as natural teeth do. Maintenance for All-on-4 dental implants is the same as your natural teeth, meaning regular brushing and flossing are all that is required to keep them looking great.

More Benefits with less costs. All-on-4 dental implants require fewer supporting screws than many other implants. Therefore, they are often the superior and cost-effective option when replacing the majority or entirety of your teeth. At Vienna Smiles in Vienna, VA, we will discuss all the options with you to make sure you are getting the best treatment possible.

Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts

Bone grafting helps preserve your smile and the natural contour of your jaw by adding grafting material around gum disease-affected teeth or to places where tooth loss has occurred. Placing grafted material in areas of missing teeth strengthens and prepares the sites for dental implants. Rebuilding your bone in areas of deterioration provides a firm foundation to which your implants can fuse. When you lose an upper tooth, especially to gum disease, there may be little bone with which to work. A “sinus lift” can resolve that. During a sinus lift, a small opening is made in the sinus above the roots of the affected tooth to form a small, balloon-like space where your dentist will place the composite to secure the implant.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. They're a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems. Made to match your natural teeth, dental implants look, feel and function like your real teeth.

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are surgically placed in your jawbone, where they serve as the roots of your missing teeth. Because they're made of titanium, which is a metal that is naturally compatible with your body, they eventually fuse with your bone. Once the implant is firmly in place, a crown, which is a replacement tooth, is attached to the implant. This gives you the functionality and appearance of a natural tooth.

Are dental implants right for me?

Most people are good candidates for dental implants. If you're missing one or more teeth, or if you're unhappy with your dentures, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. The key requirement is that you must have enough bone in your jaw, and the bone has to be strong enough to hold and support the implant. If you don't have enough bone, there are many safe and effective ways to correct bone deficiency. Dr. Barakat will assess this and suggest the best treatment plan for you.

How long does the dental implant procedure take?

The length of the dental implant procedure varies depending on several factors. These include the number of teeth being replaced and the location of the replacement teeth. In some cases, if additional procedures such as bone grafting are required, the process may take longer. Generally, the procedure involves several steps that take place over a time period of a few months. However, with the advancements in dental technology, Dr. Barakat can now offer same-day dental implants to eligible patients.

What is the success rate of dental implants?

Dental implants have a high success rate, with over 95% of patients experiencing successful outcomes. This success rate is attributed to advancements in dental technology, the expertise of dental professionals like Dr. Barakat, and proper patient selection. With good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups, dental implants can last a lifetime.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Caring for your dental implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and regular dental check-ups are essential for maintaining the health of your implants and preventing gum disease. It's also important to avoid habits that can damage your implants, such as chewing on hard objects or grinding your teeth. Dr. Barakat will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your implants to ensure their longevity.
