Dental Implants

Here at Dental Town DC, we understand damaged or missing teeth can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile. That’s why we believe dental implants could be your solution to bringing your confidence back!

Our implants are permanent replacements that look like natural teeth and feel and function just like them without the risk of decay.

With our help, you can now enjoy your favorite foods, speak without hesitation, and laugh without worrying about your teeth!

Bridges and dentures can also be effective but if you’re looking for a long-lasting solution, then you will appreciate all the benefits implants have to offer you.

Contact Dental Town DC today and book your appointment to learn more from our dental implant specialists.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are metal posts made of titanium and other compatible materials that are surgically placed into your jawbone to support a prosthetic tooth.

But it’s not just the strong and durable titanium that makes them special.

Through osseointegration, the implant fuses with your jawbone tissue, creating a secure foundation for replacement teeth.

These titanium posts serve as artificial roots, anchoring the replacement teeth (or crowns) in place. And the best part? They have the same strength, stability, and natural appearance as your real teeth.

Whether you need to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full upper or lower arch, dental implants have you covered!

How Are Dental Implants Placed?

Traditionally, the implant process takes multiple steps:

First, the dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw and capped off with either a temporary crown or a healing abutment.

We will need to allow time for osseointegration, which is the natural process of the implant fusing with your bone tissue to create a strong, secure foundation.

Next, we add an abutment connector piece above the gum level to support the artificial tooth or crown.

Finally, we customize a durable crown made of porcelain or ceramic, which looks and functions like your natural teeth. Our crowns are the perfect finishing touch, giving you a beautiful, long-lasting smile you can be proud of.

One of our dental implant experts will discuss your options to determine the best type of option for your situation.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Here are just a few of its many benefits:

  • A natural-looking smile: Dental implants look and feel just like your natural teeth. Designed to fuse with your jawbone for a permanent solution, you’ll never have to worry about your teeth slipping or falling out.
  • Enhanced speech: You can speak confidently without worrying about poor-fitting dentures slipping and causing you to mumble or slur your words. The secure fit ensures that you can communicate effectively in any situation.
  • Improved comfort: Unlike traditional bridges or dentures, these implants integrate into your natural teeth structure, providing a more comfortable option. No more discomfort or pain associated with dentures or bridges!
  • Improved oral health: They preserve your natural teeth structure by eliminating the need to sacrifice other teeth nearby for support. This ensures long-term oral health and makes cleaning between the gaps easier, improving overall hygiene.
  • Durability and stability: Implants are incredibly resilient and can last many years with the correct care. They may even last a lifetime, making them a worthwhile investment in oral health.
  • Convenience: They function just like your natural teeth, eliminating the need for removal for cleaning or worrying about dentures becoming loose or falling out. You’ll enjoy the convenience of a permanent solution that requires minimal maintenance.
  • Cost-effective in the long run: Although the initial cost of dental implants may be higher than other tooth replacement options, such as dentures or bridges, they become a more economical solution over time because they last longer and don’t require the same level of maintenance.
