For many patients seeking to replace missing teeth and rejuvenate their smiles, dental implants offer a number of advantages over other options such as dentures or dental bridges.
Accomplished cosmetic dentist Dr. Michael Chung can help you determine if dental implants are the right choice for your unique needs. Please call Softouch Dental Care at 703-319-6990 to schedule your personal consultation. We are proud to serve patients from northern Virginia, including the greater Oakton, Fairfax and Vienna areas.
Dental Implants and Your Oral Health
Without treatment, missing teeth can cause the progressive deterioration of the jaw bone and the shifting of your remaining natural teeth. If not cared for, missing teeth can also contribute to a heightened risk for periodontal disease and leave adjacent teeth vulnerable to decay.
Dental implants help prevent further bone loss because the implants themselves act as replacement roots. Dental implants are inserted into your jaw bone, which will grow naturally around the implant posts to anchor them in place.
After your bone has fully healed, the implants will provide a solid foundation for your corresponding dental crowns, which look, feel and function like your natural teeth. Your dental implants are also easy to maintain with daily brushing and flossing, and regular checkups.

Dental Implants: A Comfortable, Long-Lasting Solution
With proper care, dental implants can provide a permanent solution to missing teeth. When the recovery process is complete, implants also provide a level of comfort unmatched by dentures and dental bridges.
This is because your dental implants are designed to perform like healthy, natural teeth. Rooted in your jaw bone and capped with dental-grade porcelain crowns that are custom-made to resemble and act as natural teeth, dental implants also allow you to enjoy your regular diet without the worry of damaging or displacing your dental work.
Dental implants can also restore your confidence in your smile. Your dental implants treatment is tailored to your individual needs and customized for the distinct aesthetics of your smile.
