Dental Implants Aldie – South Riding VA

Dental implants are a reliable option for many patients seeking tooth replacement. At Stone Ridge Family Dentistry in Aldie and South Riding, Virginia, we may recommend dental implants for your smile if you are a proper candidate.

How are dental implants used to replace missing teeth?

Dental implants replace missing teeth by inserting a tiny titanium post into the jawbone. This post acts as an anchor for a dental prosthesis like a crown, bridge, or denture. The implant fuses with the bone and provides a secure foundation for the replacement teeth.

Are dental implants versatile?

Absolutely! Many of our patients use mini dental implants for tooth replacement in different ways. For example, dental implants may support a dental crown to replace a single tooth missing from the smile. They can also anchor one or both sides of a dental bridge, replacing one or more teeth in a row. In addition to replacing missing teeth in the smile, dental implants may also be used to support removable dentures, providing additional stability and improved chewing function while replacing the entire arch of teeth.

How do I take care of my dental implants?

Dental implants can last for many years if cared for properly with regular brushing and flossing and routine visits to the dentist. With proper care, they may even remain in place permanently!

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Drs. Mallory Grossman and Kelly Lincoln of Stone Ridge Family Dentistry educate patients on the many benefits of using dental implants to replace missing teeth.

  • Dental implants look natural and help preserve facial structure by preventing bone loss that naturally occurs when teeth are lost.
  • Dental implants work to replace one, several, or all of the teeth in the smile.
  • Dental implants last a lifetime with proper care after placement.
  • Dental implants function as natural teeth once did, surpassing the fit and function of alternative options such as bridges and partial dentures.
  • Dental implants are a wise investment in the smile, as their value over time is indisputable!
