Dr. Datta Malyavantham and his associates at Ridgetop Dental in Northern Virginia offer advanced treatment for the replacement of missing teeth. Dr. Datta is highly trained and experienced in implant dentistry, often recommending this option because of the many benefits implants offer for both oral health and quality of life.
The prompt and effective replacement of missing teeth will restore a functional smile and avoid the development of additional complex dental problems that will reduce your replacement options and impact your overall well being and appearance.
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Root canals are typically recommended as an alternative to a tooth extraction but sometimes a tooth is beyond damage and it must extracted. Dental implants are the best solution for missing teeth. Missing or lost teeth set in motion a cascade of changes in your dental health, all of which have a detrimental impact on your smile. When a tooth is lost or removed, the tooth root dies and no longer supports healthy bone growth in the jaw. This can lead to the repositioning or shifting of remaining teeth, affecting your bite and increase your risk for gum disease and decay. It will also lead to bone loss in the jaw. This can result in a sunken in lower face that can add years to your appearance.
Dr. Datta, Dr. Shaw and Dr. Sensenbrenner offer personalized, consultative care focused on your unique needs and goals for restoring your smile with the most suitable option. We will evaluate your oral health using advanced technology to determine your options and make appropriate recommendations.
Replacing Lost Teeth: Treatment Options
There are now several options for beautiful, functional restoration of your smile and Ridgetop Dental offers the most advanced treatments, including all types of dental implants. Dr. Datta has committed many hours to advanced education and training in implant dentistry and cosmetic procedures and can help you get back your smile with results that will support long term dental health.
A member of both the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), Dr. Datta provides complete services for the placement of dental implants for consistent, convenient care. Dental implant options include:
- Single Tooth Implants
- All On Four®, Teeth-in-a-day
- Multiple Tooth Implants, Implant-supported Dental Bridge
- Full Arch Dental Implants / Implant-supported Dentures
We also offer traditional tooth replacement options that use high quality materials and the latest techniques, offering comfortable results. These options will replace the crown portion of the tooth, but not the root structure. They will prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting but will not prevent bone loss.
