Dental Implants in Chester, VA

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone. These implants provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth designed to match your natural teeth. The process involves placing the implant, allowing time for the bone to heal and integrate with it, and then attaching a custom-made crown.

Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Candidates for dental implants should have healthy gums and sufficient bone to support the implant. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits are essential for the long-term success of dental implants. We will evaluate your needs during your consultation and create a personalized treatment plan.

  • What is the procedure for dental implants?

    At Chester Road, we’re passionate about restoring your smile—both appearance and function. Below is our process for dental implants:

    1. Consultation: During your initial visit, we will assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and determine if dental implants are the right option for you.
    2. Placement: The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort.
    3. Healing: The healing process, known as osseointegration, allows the implant to fuse with the jawbone. This can take several months.
    4. Restoration: Once the implant is securely integrated, a custom-made crown is attached to the implant, completing your new smile.
  • What types of dental implants exist?

    • Endosteal Implants: The most common type of dental implant, endosteal implants are placed directly into the jawbone. They are typically made of titanium and shaped like small screws. They are suitable for most patients with sufficient bone density and are strong and stable, providing a durable foundation for artificial teeth.
    • Subperiosteal Implants: These implants are placed under the gum but on or above the jawbone. They are used for patients who do not have enough healthy jawbones for endosteal implants and do not want to undergo bone augmentation procedures. They are less invasive than endosteal implants, with a shorter healing time.
    • All-on-4® Implants: This technique involves placing four implants in the jaw to support a full arch of teeth. It often eliminates the need for bone grafting and is ideal for patients who need a full set of upper or lower teeth replaced.
  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    • Natural Appearance: Implants are designed to look and feel like your own teeth.
    • Durability: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
    • Improved Oral Health: Implants help maintain the structure of your jawbone and prevent the shifting of adjacent teeth.
    • Enhanced Comfort: Unlike dentures, implants eliminate the discomfort and inconvenience of removable appliances.
    • Increased Confidence: Implants provide a secure and stable solution, allowing you to speak, eat, and smile with confidence.
