Dental Implants – Potomac Falls, VA
The Permanent Solution to Tooth Loss
If you have a missing tooth, you might not think that it’s a big deal – especially if it’s a back tooth that doesn’t show when you smile. But here’s a staggering statistic: if a missing tooth isn’t replaced, up to 20% of adjacent teeth will be lost in the next 4 – 8 years. That means that even a single missing tooth puts your smile’s appearance and health at risk. How can you stop this destructive cycle? With the help of dental implants from Dr. Robert Bryce at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design in Potomac Falls, VA!

Indications for Dental Implants
Dental implants are a versatile treatment. Whether you are missing one tooth, a few teeth, or even all of your teeth, they may be able to rebuild your lost dentition and restore a beautiful, fully functional smile.
Missing One Tooth
If you are missing just one tooth, you will receive a single dental implant to replace the root of the lost tooth. Once the implant is inserted into your jawbone and has had the opportunity to bond with the surrounding tissue, Dr. Bryce will place a single crown on top of it to replace the visible portion of the missing tooth.
Missing Multiple Teeth
If your missing teeth are all adjacent to one another, an implant-supported bridge may be ideal for you. Like a traditional bridge, an implant-supported one has crowns on each end that support pontics (artificial teeth) between them. However, rather than relying on the remaining natural teeth for support, an implant-supported bridge gains all of its strength from dental implants.
Missing All Teeth
To replace an entire arch of lost teeth, Dr. Bryce will insert a number of dental implants at strategic locations throughout your jawbone. They will support an implant-supported denture. These prosthetics may be permanently fixed in place, or they may be removable and “snap” onto and off of the implants with the help of small attachments.
Start to Finish Dental Implant Treatment
Many dentists must refer patients to an outside specialist for at least part of the dental implant procedure. However, Dr. Bryce has undergone advanced training that equips him to provide our patients with full-service implant dentistry at our Potomac Falls office. He both places and restores dental implants, which means that he’ll perform each step of your smile’s transformation at our comfortable, well-equipped facility with a team that understands your unique needs and preferences.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of your dental implant procedure will depend on how many implants you need, the extent of any necessary preparatory treatment, and other factors. Although dental implants tend to cost more than other tooth replacement options, they are a worthwhile investment! Their outstanding longevity may even make them a better long-term monetary value than prosthetics that need to be replaced every few years. Financing through CareCredit or Lending Club is available to help patients manage the cost of their implant procedure.
