A dental implant is an attractive, long-lasting solution to missing teeth. Each implant has three parts: a titanium root that is implanted in your jawbone, a replacement tooth, and an abutment that connects the two. Since your jaw is supposed to have roots in there from your natural teeth, the titanium root helps keep your jawbone healthy while providing the same strength and durability as your natural tooth root.
When you smile or eat, you want a full set of teeth. Showing off a gap left behind by missing teeth is embarrassing to say the least. While a dental bridge is a great noninvasive treatment for this, dental implants are more permanent and durable. Your Leesburg dentist, Dr. Buro can help! And because dental implants are made to look and work like your natural teeth, no one can even tell they’re there.
Conventional dental implants have become commonplace in dentistry, but not everyone is a candidate for traditional dental implants. This is where mini dental implants can help. Dr. Buro is the only dentist in Leesburg, VA who has advanced training in mini dental implants, having devoted 100 hours of training to this specific treatment.
Mini dental implants are ideal for those who want to stabilize teeth but have too thin of a jawbone to support traditional dental implants. For patients with jawbone recession, most dentists will suggest extensive gum and bone grafting. This process is expensive and lengthy. Not here!
When you are missing only a few teeth, dental bridges or implants are a great solution. But when you’re missing a lot of teeth, there is an alternative treatment. Dentures have been around for a while, but there’s a reason — they work really well. Traditional full dentures are noninvasive, meaning there is no surgery needed. Our Leesburg, VA dental team will create a full arch of replacement teeth set in a gum-colored mold and make sure it has a tight but comfortable fit over your gums.
If you have a damaged tooth, chances are you know it. Toothaches can get really painful. And if the damage is on one of your front teeth, you might be able to see it in the mirror. You could even be missing a tooth entirely. To help repair damaged or missing teeth, our Leesburg dentists can use dental crowns and dental bridges.
