Dental Implants | Newport News, VA

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the best, natural and most affordable dental solution for patients missing a tooth or teeth. They are artificial tooth roots that can work to increase bone density and prevent gum disease, and they do not even decay! Dental implants are permanent, natural, and work as real teeth to save patients from oral destruction that dentures and dental bridges can create. Check out these state- of- the- art dental prostheses, that have the ability to restore dental, oral and overall health for patients everywhere.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

There are so many reasons that dental implants are the superior choice compared to other dental devices, but the most important is that they work as a real part of the mouth due to the process of osseointegration. Dental implants actually give us the ability to fool the mouth into thinking that it never lost teeth in the first place, and even build up to restore better oral and dental health. As if that was not reason enough to choose dental implants, the material that they are composed of cannot even decay!

Dental Implant Process

The process of dental implants varies with each patient due to their lack of care for the oral cavity, damage done to the gum tissue and jawbone, and their daily dental routine. Although each patient will have a different time line with their dental implant procedure, Dr. Griffin performs each process in a timely manner that will not take too much of the patient’s time up. Each process within dental implantation is fairly simple and is completed by Dr. Griffin with a professional ease.

Dental Implants vs. Dentures

Besides the discomfort that dentures and bridges can cause in the mouth over time, patients are not even aware that these devices can contribute to the acceleration of tooth erosion and the loosening and recession of gum tissue. Dentures and bridges put unnecessary stress and pressure on the teeth and gums which cause patients to be able to bite or chew properly. Dental implants can actually restore gum tissue and increase density in the bones as a natural part of the mouth. Neither of these devices offer any of the benefits that dental implants provide for patients for the rest of their lives.

Bone Grafting

A sufficient amount, strength, and structure of the patient’s jawbone is required in order to qualify for the dental implant procedure. If someone has experienced jawbone deterioration, we schedule a bone graft procedure. A bone graft is a bone tissue transplant in which the doctor replaces the fractured or damaged osseous tissue with new and healthy bone, in order for the patient to be able endure the process of osseointegration. Dr. Griffin has successfully performed this procedure for years for patients that had no hope in their dental and oral hygiene.

Missing spaces in between teeth can be very harmful and dangerous to our oral and dental health and can easily lead to decay and possibly gum infection.
