Ashburn, VA dental implants dentist, Dr. Ike Lans, is helping his local patients finally get a permanent, natural-looking smile even after experiencing tooth loss with the latest technology in dental implants. With dental implants, patients can enjoy new prosthetic teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
While bridges and partial dentures have long-been the most common alternative to conceal the void of missing teeth, these options only provide a temporary aesthetic fix and can lead to further long-term complications such as bone and gum resorption. A dental implant, however, mimics the function of natural tooth root and keeps the jaw bone, tissues, and gums healthy and viable for the lifetime of the patient.
“We’ve had phenomenal success with dental implants thus far, and our patients are extremely happy with the results they’ve received with this procedure,” said Dr. Lans. “Patients love that once the implant is complete, they can treat their prosthetic just like natural tooth again, instead of having to be reminded everyday about the tooth they no longer have because of a sub-par prosthetics.”
The design of a dental implant mimics the structure of a natural tooth root. The implant itself is a small titanium screw that is surgically inserted into the jawbone of the patient, which acts just like the root of a natural tooth would. Once the implant has healed properly and fused to the surrounding jawbone, Dr. Lans then attaches an artificial porcelain crown to the implant, which is designed to look just like the prior natural tooth. As a completed unit, the implant and crown is proven to last more than 20 years and when cared for properly, will last the lifetime of the patient.
Dental implants can be effectively used to replace a single missing tooth, a series of teeth, or even entire top and bottom arches of missing teeth. In the case of a single missing tooth, dental implants present a far better alternative than fixed bridges because the surrounding teeth do not have to be altered. Additionally, the implant helps to preserve jawbone in the localized area, whereas without an implant, bone resorption can spread and cause the loss of surrounding teeth as well.
In addition to offering cosmetic dental implants, Dr. Lans and his staff also offer a variety of other dental services to help their patients achieve their best smiles. Dr. Lans is a certified provider of Invisalign clear braces and also offers cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening, veneers, porcelain crowns, and composite bonding.
Dr. Lans has been practicing dentistry for nearly 30 years. He completed his dental education at Howard University and since graduation, has remained involved in several continuing education courses and professional dental organizations to ensure that he offers patients the best the industry has to offer. Dr. Lans has been voted one of Northern Virginia’s Top Dentist by peer and patient surveys.
