Are missing teeth preventing you from enjoying your best quality of life?
When you don’t have all your teeth, eating nutritious and flavorful foods can be a challenge. But missing teeth can also cause discomfort and make you so self-conscious that you want to hide your smile. Dentures are a time-tested solution for tooth replacement, but they have drawbacks like unexpectedly shifting when you laugh or sneeze.
Dr. Mohamed Elnahass understands how complicated life can seem when you have to deal with tooth loss. For this reason, we offer dental implants at our Fredericksburg practice to help patients make the transition from a life of lowered self-esteem and discomfort to a more fulfilling quality of life.
Dental Implants – A Healthy Tooth Replacement
Dental implants are the state-of-the-art solution to adult tooth loss. The secret to their popularity is the biocompatible titanium replacement root that Dr. Elnahass places in your jaw. As bone and tissue around the implant heal, they integrate with the implant and form a permanent bond.
Since it is firmly rooted in your jaw, we can attach a crown, bridge, or denture to restore function and appearance.
Dental Implants in Three Steps
In preparation for your implant, Dr. Elnahass uses state-of-the-art cone beam technology (CBCT) that provides a three-dimensional image of your teeth including soft tissues, bone, and nerve pathways. This view allows him to plan the precise placement of your implant for the best long-term outcome.
Next, Dr. Elnahass expertly places the titanium implant in your jaw during a comfortable procedure at our office. The post is the part of the implant that replaces the lost tooth root and stimulates regeneration of bone in your jaw. The implant it is left to heal for several months before we move on to the next step in the process.
After the implant heals, you’ll return to our office so Dr. Elnahass can affix an attachment called an abutment. This piece forms the connection of the implant to a functional dental restoration.
During the third step, Dr. Elnahass will help you decide which type of restoration is best for your needs. He will explain all your options including crowns, bridges, and dentures that will restore the function and esthetics of your smile. Once we decide together which is the appropriate choice for you, we’ll create your customized dental restoration.
When considering a procedure like dental implants, it’s nice to know you can count on one professional to handle the entire process. Dr. Elnahass is trained in implant placement, so you can enjoy peace of mind knowing your care is being handled by a dentist you already know and trust.
