Dental implants from your dentist in Alexandria, VA, can remake your smile
Dental implants can help remake your smile and restore your full chewing ability so you can enjoy the foods you love. Dental implants can also give you a beautiful smile you will want to show off. Dental implants are right for you if you want to replace one or more missing teeth.
Dr. Moutaz Abdeen at Alexandria Smiles Dentistry can help you get the smile you deserve. He proudly serves residents of Alexandria, Alexandria West, Shirlington, and Bailey’s Crossroads, VA, and he can help you and your smile too!
Dental implants are a great choice for healthy people, however if you smoke, drink alcohol excessively, are diabetic, or have a history of radiation to your jaws or face, be sure and let Dr. Abdeen know. These factors can affect how well the implants fuse with your bone and heal.
Dental implants also require excellent oral hygiene habits including brushing after meals and before bed, and flossing at least once each day. Everyday maintenance of implants is easy because you can brush and floss them right along with your natural teeth. There is no need for special tools or devices to keep your implants clean.
You will love the benefits of dental implants. When you choose dental implants, you can count on:
- Natural-looking beauty, because implant crowns are made of lifelike materials like porcelain which mimic the look of tooth enamel
- Stability, because dental implants fuse with the bone in your jaw, becoming firmly embedded so they will never move around
- Permanence, because dental implants are a permanent part of your smile that you never have to remove
Dental implants also boast a success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. You want the most successful surgical implant; you want dental implants! For more information about why dental implants are right for you, call Dr. Moutaz Abdeen at Alexandria Smiles Dentistry today!
