What Are My Options for Dental Implants in Woodbridge?
Dental Implants at Venice Dental in Woodbridge
Implant dentistry will improve your smile’s health, function, and appearance. Dental implants are today’s best option for replacement teeth because of their incredible success rates. They prevent the jawbone from deteriorating, keep teeth from shifting, hold replacement teeth securely, and look completely natural.
Dental implants can be used to hold three types of restorations. They can replace a single tooth, several missing teeth, or all of your teeth. At Venice Dental in Woodbridge, Dr. Boris Dvorkin can attach a simple dental crown, bridge, or even complete dentures to dental implant posts.

Replace One Missing Tooth
Suppose you are missing a tooth due to an accident, gum disease, or even because of genetics. In that case, Dr. Dvorkin pairs a dental implant with a single crown to maintain oral health and keep teeth from shifting. An artificial tooth root made out of titanium is placed into the empty socket left by your missing tooth.
After the implant surgical procedure, you enter into a period of healing called osseointegration. The implant post requires three to six months to fuse to your jawbone. The surrounding bone forms around the implant, making it a part of your body.
Once the healing process is complete, an abutment is attached to the post. A custom-made crown matched perfectly connects to the opposite end of the abutment and fills in the gap.
Replace Several Missing Teeth
If you are missing two or more teeth in a row, bridges and dentures are the best options for restoration. A bridge is two or more prosthetic teeth fused to replace several missing teeth. The partial denture is custom-made to fill empty spaces in your arches.
Unlike dental crowns, implant-supported bridges and partial dentures do not require a dental implant post for each lost tooth. Dr. Dvorkin uses fewer implants, strategically placed, to hold your bridge and partial denture securely.
Replace All of the Teeth in the Upper or Lower Arch
A complete denture is the best option if you are missing all of the teeth in your upper or lower arch. In this case, we use a maximum of four implants to replace all of your teeth in the arch.
A complete denture is attached to the implants and completely restores your smile. You will finally eat and talk confidently, knowing there is no more embarrassing slippage with removable dentures.
