Dental Implants Restorative Dentistry Service
Dental implants are replacements for missing teeth. They eliminate the need for dentures or other cumbersome appliances and allow patients to chew and speak without worry. Dental implants are a permanent solution and are designed to last a lifetime.
Dental implants are created using titanium rods. Titanium is used because the body does not reject it; it is biocompatible. The implant is inserted into the gums via oral surgery, and then some time must pass as the implant fuses with the jawbone. Afterward, a crown is placed on top of the implant to act as a replacement tooth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
There are many benefits to choosing dental implants. They are as strong as a natural tooth and allow patients to chew foods just as they normally would. Unlike dentures, they usually do not have to be replaced. Dental implants are cared for just like natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing. Many patients find that getting dental implants allows them to return to a normal lifestyle.
Of course, getting dental implants requires a visit to an implant dentist. For many people, the idea of going to the dentist conjures up feelings of fear, anxiety, and uneasiness. Perhaps they have heard that the procedure or treatment they need is very painful. Maybe they had a traumatic experience during childhood and associate going to the dentist with feeling pain. For many people, the fear of the unknown is enough to prevent them from making an appointment with a dentist, even if they are experiencing extreme pain.
Ease Your Fears with Sedation Dentistry
Sedation dentistry offers these patients a way to relax and comfortably undergo dental procedures. Using medication, Dr. Rayek alleviates dental anxiety. Dr. Rayek has been a member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation for seven years and has undergone advanced training in sedation dentistry.
There are two types of sedation dentistry available at Smiles at Fairfax Corner. The first is a pill format, which puts patients in a deeply relaxed state yet keeps them awake. Many patients say they remember very little of their appointment when using this form of sedation. They are able to simply sit back and allow Dr. Rayek to do his work. Patients can also take this form of sedation in the hours leading up to their appointment so they can relax without letting feelings of panic set in.
The second type of sedation is general anesthesia. This type of sedation is available for people who want to be completely asleep throughout their dental treatment. Dr. Rayek works with board certified anesthesiologists to ensure his patients are safely sedated before beginning the procedure.
If you need to undergo an invasive procedure such as getting dental implants and you suffer from dental anxiety, sedation dentistry may be an excellent option for you.
Smiles at Fairfax Corner is conveniently located in Fairfax, VA to offer patients a wide range of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry treatment options.
