FAQ

Dental Implants Details

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are replacement teeth that are rooted in your jawbone just like your natural teeth. This gives them the stable foundation they need to look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth.

Getting a dental implant requires a surgical procedure, during which your Dental Studio at Mark Center practitioner implants a metal post in your jawbone. This serves as the root for your replacement tooth.

Dental Studio at Mark Center offers dental implants to replace a single missing tooth or a set of missing teeth. Contact our Alexandria office to find out how many implanted metal posts will be needed to support the number of teeth you want to replace.

Dental crowns are ideal when your tooth needs to be restored, either because an accident chipped away a portion or because decay compromised the tooth’s structural integrity. Once the crown is in place, it looks and feels just like a natural tooth. Crowns are particularly ideal for molars because they give you a sturdy chewing surface.

What’s The Process For Getting A Dental Implant?

The process starts with a minor surgical procedure, during which the root for your dental implant is set into your jawbone. Then, a waiting process starts so your bone can integrate with the metal post, giving your replacement tooth or teeth a sturdy foundation. This process, called osseointegration, may take several months.

Once your jawbone has healed and the post is sturdily implanted, your Dental Studio at Mark Center provider affixes your replacement tooth — called a crown — to it. Your crown is shaped, sized, and colored to perfectly match the surrounding teeth at our Alexandria dental office.

How Do I Care For A Dental Implant?

Maintaining your dental implant is as easy as taking care of your other teeth. Brush, floss, and get regular dental exams at Dental Studio at Mark Center and your dental implant can last your lifetime.

Our team at Dental Studio at Mark Center isn’t just skilled in placing dental implants, they’re also seasoned in dental implant restoration. If anything happens to your implant (e.g., the crown chips), the team is available to apply the necessary repairs. And they offer a wide range of other dental services — from dental fillings to teeth whitening — to protect and beautify your smile.

If you’re interested in getting the most natural-looking and feeling replacement tooth possible, call us or make an appointment online today.

Single Tooth Dental Implants

Single tooth dental implants consist of one dental implant “post” and a crown. The post is a small titanium screw that functions as an artificial tooth root once it’s surgically implanted into your mouth and bonds with your jaw bone. The crown replaces your missing tooth. Together, the implant and the crown completely restore your missing tooth, and function just like a real tooth would.

Single tooth dental implants are widely considered by dentists to be the best way to replace one or two missing teeth. They last much longer than comparable treatments like dental bridges or partial dentures, with a lifespan of 30+ years being very common for most patients. In fact, if you choose this procedure at Dental Studio at Mark Center, it’s likely that you will be able to keep your implant for the rest of your life.

Not only that, but single tooth dental implants require no special care. You can simply brush and floss your teeth normally. This makes them very convenient, especially compared to a partial denture.

Finally, single-tooth implants have the ability to protect against bone resorption caused by tooth loss. This happens because, normally, the pressure of biting and chewing is sent through the root of your tooth to stimulate your jaw bone.

But when you lose a tooth, your jaw bone will no longer be stimulated, and it will start to get weaker. Dental implants prevent this. Like a natural tooth, the implant becomes part of your jaw bone, and helps stimulate the jaw to prevent the bone from weakening. Other types of tooth replacement like dental bridges and partial dentures can’t do this, so dental implants are widely considered to be a superior option for your long-term oral health.

Dental Implant Restorations

The term “dental implant restoration” is used to refer to the part of the dental implant that replaces your missing tooth or teeth. There are a lot of different types of dental implant restorations, but the most commonly used types include:

  • Dental crowns – Dental crowns attach to one dental implant and are used to replace a single tooth. They are the most common type of dental implant restoration.
  • Implant-supported bridges – Implant-supported bridges attach to two dental implants, and can restore 2-3 or more missing teeth in a row. They’re a good option for people who have lost multiple teeth.
  • Implant-supported dentures – A full set of dentures can be built to attach to a series of 4-6 dental implants, restoring the upper, lower, or both arches of the teeth. Because the dentures are anchored to multiple implants, they won’t move or shift, and they look and feel more natural. This makes them a great alternative to traditional dentures for people who have lost all of their teeth.

The right type of dental implant and dental implant restoration depends on your oral health, your budget, your preferences, and a number of other factors. To learn more and see what’s right for you, schedule a consultation at Dental Studio at Mark Center now. Dr. Sepideh Badri is always accepting new patients in Alexandria.
