Find out if implants are what you need to replace your missing teeth?


Are you looking for a way to fill gaps in your smile and replace your teeth but want a restoration that will truly last? Sure, you could turn to dental implantsdentures or bridges to replace one or multiple teeth, but if you want a tooth replacement that is as close to real teeth as you can get then it’s time you turned to our McLean, VA, dentists Dr. Cecilia Gyllenhoff and Dr. Samuel Cappiello to find out if implants are right for you.

Dental implants are the closest restoration you will find to natural teeth. While ideally, the best option is to maintain a healthy smile so that you don’t have to have a tooth extracted, sometimes accidents or problems happen and an extraction cannot be avoided.

If this is the case, you’ll want a restoration that functions as close to real teeth as possible. This tooth loss solution comes in the form of a small metal post, which is surgically placed into the jawbone by one of our McLean, VA, restorative dentists.

Over time, the jawbone grows around the implant, making it a permanent structure from which to support a dental crown or other tooth replacement. Whether you are missing just one or all of your teeth, dental implants could just be the answer.

Find out if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Ask yourself these simple questions:

  • Do you have a healthy smile?
  • Do you maintain good oral hygiene?
  • Is your smile free of decay or gum disease?
  • Are you a non-smoker?
  • Are you an adult?

If you said “yes” to these questions then you could be the perfect candidate for implants.
