Dental Implants

A missing tooth or multiple missing teeth can cause embarrassing gaps in your smile and lead to difficulty eating, speaking, and smiling.

At Fairfax Family Dental Care, our doctors offer dental implants, a long-lasting and superior restorative solution for missing teeth.

Why do residents of Fairfax, VA, choose us for implant care?

Dental Implant Emergency? Contact Us for Urgent Care

At our practice in Fairfax, VA, we are available at any time for emergency dentistry. If you are experiencing complications with a dental implant, even if your implants were placed by another dentist, contact our office and we will get you the care you need as soon as possible.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a prosthetic or artificial tooth root that our dentists surgically place in the jawbone to hold a crown, bridge, or denture.

Implants can either be made of biocompatible titanium or biocompatible ceramic. Over time, these materials naturally fuse with the jawbone, so the implant becomes part of your anatomy. At the end of implant treatment, your prosthetic teeth will be just as secure and usable as your natural teeth.

Because of their numerous advantages, dental implants are considered modern dentistry's best solution for tooth replacement.

Dental Implant Benefits

Dental implants have a number of advantages over other treatments for missing teeth.

  • Built to Last - Dental implants have impressive long-term success rates and are made from sturdy, biocompatible materials. While restorations eventually need to be changed, the implants themselves may never need to be replaced.
  • Provide Bone Support - Jawbone atrophy is a natural consequence of tooth loss. However, dental implants help deliver regenerative signals to your bone, keeping it healthy and preventing bone loss. Implants also don't sacrifice the quality of surrounding teeth.
  • Improved Stability - For patients who need dentures, dental implants allow you to fasten your restoration directly to your jawbone. No dental adhesives are needed. This reduces any slipping or clicking associated with dentures and allows you to eat and speak without reservation.
  • Natural Look and Feel - With the exception of your natural teeth, nothing looks or feels more natural than a restoration supported by an implant.

How Does Dental Implant Treatment Work? A Timeline Overview

Dental implants can support all types of replacement teeth to restore functionality.
Dental implants can support all types of replacement teeth to restore functionality.

Planning and Preparation

During your consultation, we will use the VATECH PaX-i3D digital X-ray system to determine candidacy for dental implants and plan the surgery. With this advanced imaging software, we can accurately assess bone density and determine optimal placement of your implants.

Administering Anesthesia

Implant surgery at our office in Fairfax, VA, begins with the administration of sedation and local anesthesia. Once you are comfortable, we will prepare the dental implant site or sites.

Incisions and Placement

Our surgeons will create incisions in the gums to expose the underlying bone. Then, we will create small holes in the bone that will house the implant posts. Once the holes are the proper depth and width, we can place the implants. This is done with a series of instruments that help to ensure proper placement.

Completing Implant Surgery

Once all implants are secure, we will place a flat healing cap over the end of the screw. This serves to protect the implant from bacteria and infections while you heal. When the healing caps are in place, we will restore the gum flaps we created and suture them in place.


The recovery process after implant surgery is lengthy. This phase is referred to as osseointegration and can take anywhere between three and six months. During this time, the implants will fuse with your bone. To avoid disturbing this critical process, you must eat primarily soft foods and very gently brush and floss your teeth and gums.


Once the osseointegration phase is complete, you will return for the placement of the abutment(s). Abutments connect the implant to the crown, bridge, or denture. We will again create flaps in your gums to expose the healing cap. We will remove the healing caps and replace them with the abutments.

Implant Restoration

You must typically wait about another week for your gums to heal around the abutments before we can place your final crown, bridge, or denture. The dental restorations we use near-perfectly resemble natural teeth, so you will leave your restoration appointment with a full, bright, healthy-looking smile.

A Great Reputation for Patient Care

"This is the absolute best place in the world for anyone/family to come for dental care. Please don't change anything. I have always been 100% satisfied with all the professional work I have had done at this dental office. They are always at the top of the latest, most efficient and painless procedures." Gotvisionz

Maintaining Dental Implants and Restorations

You may think that nothing could possibly replace your own teeth, but our restorations are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Additionally, dental implants and the restorations they support are often just as easy to care for. You typically won't have to do anything out of the ordinary to keep them clean. Fairfax Family Dental Care is here to be your partner in lifelong oral health.

Dental Implants

Once your dental implants are in place and you've healed from your placement procedure, it's fairly easy to keep them in good shape. Simply follow a good at-home oral hygiene routine and attend regular dental screenings with your dentist.

With proper care, your dental implants can last a lifetime, just like natural teeth that have been cared for properly.


Dental crowns can be treated just like your natural teeth. You can brush a dental crown twice a day with a soft-bristle toothbrush and toothpaste and floss around it once a day to keep your gums healthy enough to support the restoration. It is safe to use an antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash with these and other restorations.

Crowns can last for 10 to 15 years or longer when cared for properly.


When caring for a dental bridge, you can brush it just like you brush your natural teeth. You will also need to use super floss, a floss threader, or an interdental brush to clean your gums underneath the bridge.

Your dental bridge can last for five to 15 years with proper care.


Using non-abrasive toothpaste, brush your denture with a soft-bristle toothbrush, and floss at least once a day. Unlike traditional dentures, you don't have to remove implant-supported dentures to clean them, and they don't have to soak in water each night. Only your dentist will be able to remove your dentures to give them a thorough cleaning during regular checkups.

Implant-supported dentures can last for about 10 years.

When caring for restorations, you must also strive to keep your entire mouth healthy. This includes properly cleaning your tongue, cheeks, and the roof of your mouth. Additionally, it's important to schedule regular checkups with your dentist so they can make sure you're caring for your restoration properly.

What About Traditional Bridges and Dentures? On Common Alternatives to Dental Implants

You may be thinking, "Can't regular dentures or a dental bridge replace my missing teeth?"

It's true that traditional dentures and dental bridges are a lower-cost, quicker way to replace missing teeth. However, dentists recommend dental implants for a reason. Dental implants offer many benefits over dental bridges and dentures, including:

  • Neither traditional bridges nor dentures prevent bone loss, which can impact the health of your jawbone and any remaining natural teeth.
  • Dental bridges require altering the teeth surrounding the missing tooth. Dental implants do not alter healthy surrounding teeth.
  • Dentures can come loose even if you have creams or adhesives in place. Dental implants keep restorations fully anchored.
