The Anatomy of a Dental Implant

Dental implants provide long-term stability for a natural, beautiful smile. 

Dental implants are the most natural and successful option for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are highly durable and designed to look and function like your natural teeth. East Market Dental of Fairfax, VA provides in-house dental implant services. We help patients manage all phases of their implant treatment for predictable and streamlined results.Dental implants boast a 98% success rate.  With proper oral hygiene, dental implants may last a lifetime.

Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that mimic the natural ingenuity of a natural human tooth. The implant will look, function and feel just like natural teeth providing patients with the ability to enjoy a secure, confident smile. Dr. Deepti Sareen is a general dentist with advanced training in implant dentistry. Using modern dental technology and 3D digital scanning, Dr. Sareen is able to provide patients with even higher success rates for a lasting natural smile.

  • The Implant- A dental implant is a small titanium screw that Dr. Sareen surgically places in the jaw. The titanium is biocompatible and designed to fuse with the jawbone helping to support the alignment of the teeth and function of the jaw. Dental implants are the only missing tooth replacement option that actually helps to promote natural bone tissue regeneration.
  • The Abutment-   The abutment is the small piece that secures the dental restoration to the implant. Once the dental implant post is surgically placed, the implant takes approximately 3-6 months to integrate with the jawbone. The abutment is then attached to the implant and used to hold the dental restoration in place.
  • Restoration-  A dental crown, bridge or denture is custom designed and fabricated by Dr. Sareen. Using 3D digital imaging, Dr. Sareen creates a lifelike dental restoration that will blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. The final restoration is secured to the abutment. Modern dental restorations are decay and stain resistant and with proper oral hygiene and routine dental exams can last for many years.
