Arlington Dental Excellence is pleased to offer a variety of services to replace lost or extracted teeth, and dental implants are among our most advanced methods. Our skilled dentists, Dr. Layth Ghanim and Dr. Alan Jureidini, are highly trained and experienced in performing dental implant procedures. If you are interested in receiving a dental implant in Arlington, Virginia, your procedure will include the following steps:
To begin your dental implant procedure, you will have a free consultation with one of our dentists. During this consultation, we will evaluate your oral health and create a personalized treatment plan that fits your unique needs. We will also discuss treatment costs and answer any questions you may have to ensure that there are no surprises.
If you decide to proceed with your dental implant treatment, we will have you meet with a periodontist, a specialist in gum health and dental implants. During this meeting, the periodontist will review your oral health and finalize any details on your treatment plan. Once this exam is complete, you can schedule your appointment for your dental implant procedure.
Your procedure day is a big day! During your procedure, our dentists will carefully and accurately place an implant post into your jawbone, which will replace the root structure of your missing teeth. Once the implant post is in place, we will cap it off with temporary restorations that look like natural teeth. This means that you will leave our office with a restored smile that looks, functions, and feels like your natural teeth!
Dental implants require a recovery period. Depending on your unique case and how quickly you heal, you will need to be on a soft food diet for anywhere between a few weeks to a few months. Throughout your recovery period, you will also visit our dentist for regular checkups and exams, so we can make sure everything is properly healing. These checkup appointments are free.
During your recovery period, our dentists will create customized dental restorations that are made to resemble your unique natural teeth. Once the health process is complete, we will replace your temporary restorations with your permanent ones, which often come in the form of a dental crown, bridge, or dentures, depending on how many teeth you are having replaced. Once your permanent teeth are cemented in place, your treatment is complete!
If you have any questions or concerns about what you can expect during your dental implant procedure, we welcome you to contact our office at 703-525-0157. Our friendly team is happy to talk with you, and we look forward to helping you achieve a healthier and more beautiful smile!
