Dental Implants – Newport News, VA

Comprehensive Tooth Replacement

Dental implants are unlike any other traditional tooth replacement treatment. Instead of just replacing the biting surface of a tooth, they also restore the root structure, which makes a vital difference. By anchoring your prosthetic to dental implants, you’ll be able to not just complete the basics, like eat, speak, and chew more comfortably—you’ll also be able to enjoy a smile that replicates nature’s design and looks and feels completely natural.

Why Choose Link, Jacobs & Link DDS for Dental Implants?

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants themselves are small titanium posts that are placed below the gumline to restore the root structure of missing teeth. Due to their biocompatible nature, they fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This allows them to provide the area with stimulation and blood flow to keep it from deteriorating, just like the roots of your natural teeth. Once this process is complete, we’re able to attach a permanent crown, bridge, or denture to restore your smile.

The 4 Step Dental Implant Process

  1. Initial Consultation. Our team will examine your mouth, listen to any goals that you have in mind, and help you determine whether dental implants are right for you. If you decide to move forward, we’ll create a customized treatment timeline and walk you through it so you know what to expect moving forward.
  2. Dental Implant Surgery. We partner with a local oral surgeon for this part of the process. They’ll surgically place your implant below the gumline and into the jawbone to restore the root structure of your missing teeth.
  3. Osseointegration & Abutment Placement. Once your implant has been placed, it will naturally fuse with the jawbone as you heal. Afterward, we’ll call you in to place a small, metal connector piece called an abutment onto your implant.
  4. Placement of the Final Restoration. As soon as your permanent prosthetic has arrived at our office, we’ll call you in to secure it to your abutment and complete the process.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants have a wide array of unique benefits to offer patients, including the following:

Who Can Dental Implants Help?

The best way to learn whether dental implants can help restore your smile is to schedule a consultation with our team. During this visit, we’ll examine your jawbone structure, ask you about your goals, and walk you through the process so you know what it entails. Based on our findings, we’ll be able to outline a customized treatment plan for you explaining how dental implants will be used to restore your smile.

Missing Single Tooth

For one missing tooth, we can place a single dental implant below the gumline. Once it has fused with the jawbone, we’ll attach an abutment followed by a customized dental crown to fill the gap between your teeth.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Instead of having to alter your natural teeth to place a traditional bridge, we can secure it to your mouth with two dental implants placed at either end of the gap in your smile. It will help keep surrounding teeth aligned by filling the space in your arch.

Missing All Teeth

Instead of having to rely on natural suction to hold your denture in place, we can secure it to anywhere from four to eight dental implants that are surgically placed below the gumline. That way, you won’t have to worry about slipping or shifting when you eat or speak.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

The entire dental implant process is customized based on factors like what type of restoration you require, how many dental implants you need to have placed, and whether you need any preparatory treatments like a bone graft. These cost-determining factors will be outlined for you during your initial consultation, and our team will walk you through any potential dental insurance benefits. We also offer flexible additional financing through CareCredit to make paying for your treatment easy.
