Dr. Jennifer Rice and Dr. James Rice at Rice Dentistry of Nellysford are pleased to offer dental implant restoration for our patients in Nellysford, Virginia, seeking to repair their smiles. Dental implants have the versatility to replace all of your teeth, several or even just one.
Our skilled dentists use dental implants to secure a tooth or teeth in place. These permanent replacements for missing teeth are permanent and securely placed in the jawbone. Our dentist performs oral surgery to place a biocompatible titanium screw into your jawbone where the missing tooth was previously located. What the titanium screw does is acts as the tooth root by holding your implant in place securely.
As the site heals, the jawbone will fuse to the titanium screw. After the healing is done and the implant is secure, our dentist will attach the tooth or teeth onto the post. The type of dental restoration will depend on how many teeth are being replaced. This means you may receive custom-made complete or partial dentures, a bridge or crown. Our dentist ensures that your implant is both comfortable and pleasing to blend in with your smile.
With our custom crafted dental implant restoration, our goal is to help your smile regain its health and function, just like your natural teeth. Caring for your implants is similar to caring for your teeth, and with good oral hygiene, they will last as long as your natural teeth, or longer!
