What Are The Benefits of Having a Dental Implant Procedure?
Dental Implants offer patients a wide array of long term benefits. Dental implants can replace one tooth, or many teeth, and can secure a denture or bridge into place. Dental implants are a comfortable and natural looking missing tooth replacement option. Patients will not have to fear slippage while eating or speaking as you may with traditional dentures. Dental implants are a durable restoration that can last a lifetime if cared for properly.

What Material Are Implants Made Of?
Dr. Datta uses only the most advanced technology and materials for all dental restorations. The dental implant itself is made of high quality titanium and then topped with a ceramic dental crown. Today’s dental implant materials offer natural and aesthetically pleasing results. Many patients say people can not tell the difference between their implant and their natural teeth.

Are Dental Implants Permanent?
Dental implants are a permanent dental restoration that with proper maintenance could last upwards of 30 years. Decay or discoloration is not possible in a dental implant. It is however, essential to keep the gums and surrounding teeth clean and healthy to support the implant.

Do Dental Implants Require Special Care?
Dental implants require no more care than your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing twice a day and regular visits to our Stirling or Reston dentist office can help your dental implant last a lifetime.
