Dental Implants FAQs

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts designed to mimic that natural ingenuity of natural teeth. The implant is surgically placed in the jaw bone and is used to anchor prosthetic teeth in place. A single dental implant can be used to replace one missing tooth, or several dental implants can be used to secure a denture for a full arch of missing teeth.

What is the dental implant procedure like?

The dental implant procedure is typically a multi-step process. Dr. Datta will coordinate all phases of treatment and handles all aspects of the procedure from pre-treatment planning to the surgical implantation, restoration, and follow-up appointments. Ridgetop Dental Implant Center is your one-stop dentist office for all of your dental implant needs.

We do offer All-on-Four and Teeth-In-A-Day where patients are able to receive implants and temporary restoration in just one visit to our dentist office.

What type of implants are available?

There are many techniques and styles of implants. Dr. Datta will present all viable options to patients after their personalized implant consultation. The style of implant used will depend on the number and location of missing teeth as well as the health and stability of the bone.

Can dental implants be used to replace a full arch of missing teeth?

Yes. There are several options for replacing a full arch of missing teeth using dental implants. There are removable and permanent options for securing a partial denture to replace an arch of missing teeth.

Why should I choose dental implants?

Dental implants are the most natural way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants provide patients with many advantages over traditional missing tooth replacement options. Implants help stabilize bone tissue, prevent facial regression and reduce the risk of gum disease and additional tooth loss. Dental implants support a natural bite and allow patients to enjoy a diet without restriction.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Most patients are eligible for some type of dental implant procedure. Some patients will require additional procedures to secure their oral health prior to their implant treatment. Dr. Datta offers bone grafting and tissue regeneration procedures for patients without substantial bone tissue to support dental implants. To find out if dental implants are right for replacing your missing teeth, request a complimentary consultation with Dr. Datta at our Reston or Sterling, VA dentist office.

Do dental imp lants require special care?

Dental implants can last for many years with proper oral hygiene. Different types of implants require different care. Brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist at least twice a year for checkups and professional cleanings can help to keep your gums, bone, and implants healthy.
