Dental Implants in Alexandria, VA

If You’re Looking to Have a Dental Implant Procedure in Alexandria, VA, Call National Landing Smiles.

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Dental implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.

The implants themselves are artificial tooth roots anchored in the gum or jawbone, on which replacement teeth are permanently secured. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore your smile! Dental implants are stable and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear at our Alexandria, VA office.

Common reasons for a dental implant procedure:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues
  • Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable

There are various types of dental implant procedures, in our Alexandria, VA office we provide the following implant procedures.

Mini Dental Implants

Often done in a single visit to our Alexandria, VA office, mini dental implants are a new and low-cost way to secure your dentures, at less than half the cost of traditional dental implants! Even patients who have been told they aren’t candidates for traditional implants may benefit from mini implants. In some cases, your existing dentures can be used, making this implant procedure even more affordable.

Single Tooth Implant

By replacing a single tooth in our Alexandria, VA office and you can avoid a conventional bridge and your adjacent teeth are preserved. Single-tooth implants do not decay or need root canal treatments and have the highest long-term success rates for replacing a single tooth. Enjoy your new tooth!

All-on-4 Full Arch Implant Procedure

With the All-on-4 implant procedure, we can literally restore an entire row of teeth in just one appointment at our Alexandria, VA office. With just four to six strategically placed implants, we can use them to fully support an implant-retained denture that simply snaps onto them. All on four dentures replace all of your teeth with a permanent set of natural-feeling prosthetics that function exactly like a real set of teeth. Permanently affixed to your jaw with titanium screws, they will not shift or slip and do note put unwanted pressure on your gums. Eating and biting are much more comfortable, as they act just as natural teeth do. Maintenance for All-on-4 dental implants is the same as your natural teeth, meaning regular brushing and flossing are all that is required to keep them looking great.

More Benefits with less costs. All-on-4 dental implants require fewer supporting screws than many other implants. Therefore, they are often the superior and cost-effective option when replacing the majority or entirety of your teeth. At National Landing Smiles in Alexandria, VA, we will discuss all the options with you to make sure you are getting the best treatment possible.

Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts

Bone grafting helps preserve your smile and the natural contour of your jaw by adding grafting material around gum disease-affected teeth or to places where tooth loss has occurred. Placing grafted material in areas of missing teeth strengthens and prepares the sites for dental implants. Rebuilding your bone in areas of deterioration provides a firm foundation to which your implants can fuse. When you lose an upper tooth, especially to gum disease, there may be little bone with which to work. A “sinus lift” can resolve that. During a sinus lift, a small opening is made in the sinus above the roots of the affected tooth to form a small, balloon-like space where your dentist will place the composite to secure the implant.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth, or chronic dental problems. They are artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns. At Nala Smiles, Dr. Hisham Barakat and his team have extensive experience in providing dental implants, helping patients from all over Alexandria reclaim their confident smiles.

Why should I consider dental implants?

Dental implants are widely regarded as the closest thing to natural teeth. They restore not only the appearance of your smile but also your ability to eat and speak with ease. Unlike dentures, which can slip and cause discomfort, dental implants are firmly anchored in your jawbone, providing stability and preventing bone loss. Plus, they're designed to last a lifetime with proper care and regular check-ups. If you're in Alexandria and considering dental implants, Dr. Hisham Barakat at Nala Smiles is a trusted choice for this transformative procedure.

What does the procedure for dental implants involve?

The dental implant procedure involves several stages. First, the implant, which is made of titanium, is placed into the jawbone surgically. Once the implant is in place, the bone around the implant needs time to heal in a process called osseointegration, which can take several months. After healing, an abutment is attached to the implant post. Finally, the new artificial tooth (or teeth), which is custom made to match your natural teeth, is attached to the abutment. Dr. Hisham Barakat at Nala Smiles in Alexandria, VA, is highly skilled in performing this procedure, ensuring minimal discomfort and optimal results for his patients.

Are dental implants right for me?

Most people with missing teeth are candidates for dental implants. Ideal candidates should have good overall health, healthy gums, and enough bone in the jaw to hold the implants. However, even if you have bone loss in your jaw, you may still be a candidate for dental implants, as modern techniques such as bone grafting can provide the necessary support. It's important to discuss your medical history and all possible treatment options with a qualified professional. If you're in Alexandria, VA, consider scheduling a consultation with Dr. Hisham Barakat at Nala Smiles. His expert guidance can help you make an informed decision about whether dental implants are the right choice for restoring your smile.
