When a permanent tooth is lost, a number of dental problems can occur. The open space can cause teeth to shift, generate problems with eating and speaking, advance bone loss in the jaw, and create a self-conscious smile. Luckily, our skilled dentist received the top training and is certified in dental implant procedures. A dental implant consists of a titanium root that is placed in the jaw and a porcelain crown that improves the esthetic appearance of the tooth. At Lansdowne Dental Arts, we like to use dental implants because they maintain the look of the original tooth but also provide functional benefits, too.
When a patient comes to our office for a dental implant, he will first meet with Dr. Jun H Chung for the initial consultation. After the procedure has been explained and all risks are understood, our dentist will then begin the dental implant process. In some cases, it may be necessary to remove a decayed or damaged tooth in order to make room for the implant. Once the area has been prepared, Dr. Jun H Chung will carefully place the implant into the jaw and fit it with the artificial crown. The titanium base will hold the tooth in place and integrate itself into the natural bone of the patient.
We are confident that our office will give fantastic service to those looking for dental implants in Leesburg, Virginia. To learn more about how Dr. Jun H Chung and the rest of our team at Lansdowne Dental Arts can help you, call our office today.
