Dental Implants DC

Dental Implant Surgery

Dental implants in DC are the leading solution to replace missing teeth. When a tooth is damaged, unhealthy, or missing, a dental implant can be inserted in its place, which acts like the root of your natural tooth. An abutment and dental crown can then be placed on the anchor screw for a full, natural-looking smile. Dental implants are often recommended over traditional tooth replacement options, such as dentures and dental bridges, because they reduce the risk of jawbone loss. Additionally, dental bridges and dentures can easily slip or become dislodged while talking, smiling, or eating. At Pashapour Oral + Facial Surgery, we are proud to offer dental implants in DC, including traditional dental implants, All-On-4® dental implants, All-On-6 dental implants, hybrid dental implants, same day dental implants, zirconia dental implants, and guided dental implant surgery.

Dental Implants Washington DC

A dental implant is a missing tooth treatment that uses an anchor screw or post to securely hold a dental crown. After the placement of this dental screw, an abutment is placed, which will act as support between the anchor screw and future dental crown. Prior to the placement of the dental crown, the anchor screw must go through a process known as osseointegration. This period is where the jawbone will bond with the anchor screw, forming a durable, stable base for your dental crown. Following this period of osseointegration, a permanent dental crown can be placed.

All-On-4® Dental Implants

All-On-4® dental implants are often used to replace all the teeth of the upper or lower jaw. All-On-4® dental implants are a revolutionary treatment because they can replace a large amount of missing teeth using only 4 anchor screws. The fewer number of anchor screws used during dental implant surgery will allow for a quicker recovery. If a patient is missing all the teeth of his or her upper or lower jaw, All-On-4® dental implants can provide a full set of teeth for a natural-looking smile.

All-On-6 Dental Implants

Similar to All-On-4® dental implants, All-On-6 dental implants use 6 anchor screws to support a full set of teeth for the upper or lower jaw. All-On-6 dental implants are typically recommended in specific cases where additional support is necessary to form a secure base for the dental crowns. Because All-On-6 dental implants only uses 6 anchor screws, it is considerably less invasive than receiving individual dental implants for each missing tooth. Dr. Pashapour can help determine if All-On-6 dental implants are right for you.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction can restore your smile by replacing all the teeth of your upper and lower jaws. This procedure uses dental implants to look, feel, and function like your new teeth. Full mouth restoration can achieve a healthy-looking smile, as well as correct issues related to talking or chewing. Patients with cracked, broken, or missing teeth may be ideal candidates for full mouth restoration. Discover how full mouth reconstruction can help you smile more fully and confidently.

Hybrid Dental Implants

Hybrid dental implants are dental bridges or dentures supported by dental implants. Unlike hybrid dental implants, traditional dental bridges and dentures can easily become dislodged and put you at a higher risk for jawbone loss. Because hybrid dental implants are supported by dental implants, they promote proper jawbone density and health. Implant supported bridges are often recommended for patients who are missing several teeth in a row. On the other hand, implant supported dentures are often used for patients missing all or the majority of their teeth.

Same Day Dental Implants

Same day dental implants are often referred to as teeth-in-an-hour or teeth-in-a-day because they allow us to place your dental implants in one visit and you to leave your visit with dental implants and dental crowns. Traditionally, a dental implant would be placed, and a secondary visit for the dental crown would be scheduled several months in advance to allow for osseointegration. This is the process of your dental implant securely bonding with your jawbone, which can take 3-6 months. With same day dental implants, Dr. Pashapour is able to place a dental implant and crown in a single visit, allowing you to leave our office with a full smile.

Zirconia Dental Implants

Zirconia dental implants are white ceramic implants that are designed to match the shade of your natural teeth. Traditional dental implants are typically made of titanium, which can cause a reaction for those with a titanium allergy. Zirconia dental implants feature a biocompatible design to ensure the health of your dental implant. Ceramic dental implants are a durable solution to missing teeth that can help restore a full smile.
