Cascades Center for Dental Health proudly serves implant dentistry patients in the Loudoun County VA area. If you are looking for an implant dentist, contact us today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Ruparelia. He’s one of the best implant dentists in the field.
At Cascades Center for Dental Health, we do something that most implant dentistry practices don’t: we complete your treatment from beginning to end, all in our office. This convenience and careful attention to care is hard to come by, as most implant dentistry offices require you to see several different dentists in order to complete your treatment.
Dental implants are man-made replacements for natural teeth. When properly placed in a person’s mouth, they function just as natural teeth do. Dr. Ruparelia places the titanium post in the place of your affected tooth. This tooth is securely and permanently anchored to your jawbone and then covered with a crown.
Depending on your specific case, there are a number of different dental implants that could be ideal. Dr. Ruparelia will conduct a thorough examination, which include x-rays and models of your mouth, to determine what is best for you and to create the ideal fit.
Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are a definite investment, and we will happily discuss cost and payment plans with you before beginning any treatment. Our patients, however, convincingly assert, once their implant treatments are complete, that they are glad they made the investment and would do it again.
Getting dental implants is a surgical procedure and therefore will be accompanied by some discomfort. We will use anesthetic and patient sedation to ease that discomfort during the procedure. If there is any residual discomfort following the dental implant procedure, Dr. Ruparelia can prescribe pain medication to aid in your recovery. Most patients, however, only report discomfort of 0-2 on a scale of 0-10.
Dental implant treatment can take from four to nine months to complete entirely. This procedure is advanced and can therefore take a little bit longer in order to ensure it is successful. Cascades Dental will always provide our patients with temporary teeth during this period and guarantee that they will never be without teeth unless they choose to be.
Why To Get Dental Implants
Dental implants are not just something that will make your teeth look better. They are actually beneficial in keeping your mouth healthy and functioning properly. When you leave holes in your smile, the bone that supported the now missing tooth/teeth deteriorates. As this bone disappears, the teeth nearby suffer from a lack of support and structure.
If you have dentures, partials, or bridges, this lack of support could lead to pain and mobility issues, among other problems. Your tongue also enlarges to accommodate the spaces of missing teeth. Missing teeth can dramatically impact your mouth’s functionality and your diet. Numbness in the lower lip and even potential jaw fractures are possible.
On top of all of these tooth loss issues, one missing tooth can lead to the loss of more. In a type of domino effect, the bone deterioration from one missing tooth spreads to the surrounding healthy teeth, eventually leading to their loss as well. Getting a dental implant can prevent these major issues that can lead to even more costly dental work in the long run.
