Tooth In One Day

Single Dental Implants in Arlington - 1 Day

The Tooth in One Day procedure allows a patient to replace a single tooth with an implant in one day. This treatment helps to maintain the surrounding bone, keeping it strong and intact and also prevents adjacent teeth from shifting into the missing tooth space. The implant supported porcelain crown is durable and mimics natural tooth anatomy, helping to maintain a healthy bite so that patients can enjoy all their favorite foods and share their beautiful smile.

The Teeth in One Day procedure is a unique implant solution that allows patients who are missing multiple teeth to replace several teeth using implants as “anchors.”

Offering many advantages over traditional bridges, hybrids and dentures, this solution is easy to care for, simulating the look and feel of natural teeth and remaining fixed in place with the implants acting as anchors. This treatment can help alleviate the sunken look that can occur with bone loss in the jaw by stimulating bone growth in the area around the implant. This process is called osseointegration and can also help prevent future bone loss.

Patients will not experience the typical rocking and movement or gum irritation associated with dentures and can often leave the same day with a full arch of teeth, reducing both the overall cost and healing time for the patient.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full Mouth Reconstruction in Arlington

Full mouth reconstruction can return health, proper function and the pleasure of eating to patients whose dental concerns have impacted their ability to eat or their self esteem and social interaction. From the four extra years in post doctoral residencies at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Han has achieved dual specialty certificates in Fixed-Prosthesis & Periodontics/Implants.

Reconstruction can be an effective treatment when teeth no longer fit together correctly, also called a malocclusion, or when multiple teeth have been missing for a long time. Missing teeth may become loose, even with regular chewing, and may lead to premature tooth loss and subsequent bite collapse.

Our doctors will perform a thorough clinical examination to evaluate the patient’s existing dental condition and correlating jaw muscles and joints. If full mouth reconstruction is necessary, six to eight implants can typically restore the whole dentition. Our doctors employ only the most advanced implant materials, bone graft materials, and  they only work with the finest laboratories and technicians.

The scope of implant supported full mouth rehabilitation includes the following reconstructive work:

  • Dental implant placements
  • Bone Grafting
  • Sinus Augmentation
  • Tissue Grafting
  • Smile Design
  • Implant supported Crowns/Bridges
  • Implant supported Fixed Hybrid Prosthesis
  • Implant supported Overdentures

Bone & Tissue Grafting

Bone & Tissue Grafting in Arlington, VA

At Smile Designer, we understand that the loss of your natural teeth can profoundly affect the way you eat and speak. Your oral hygiene regimen, your appearance and your confidence are all impacted by tooth loss. Implant supported prosthesis, such as crown, bridges, fixed hybrid prosthesis and overdentures are all various treatment options to consider.  Sometimes bone and tissue grafting is necessary to prepare for the placement of dental implants.

Gum Grafting

Receding gums, i.e., a decreasing gum area, is a common issue affecting approximately 3 out of 4 adults, and can sometimes be a sign of periodontal disease.

Other causes of gum recession include:

  • Forceful brushing of the teeth
  • Misaligned bite issue
  • Grinding or clenching teeth

The most common treatment for gum recession is gum grafting. Used to treat root exposure resulting from receded gum tissue, gum grafting involves removing tissue from the roof of the mouth or from gum tissue near the tooth. The excised tissue is then stitched into the area needing gingival repair.

Bone Grafting

When teeth have been missing for an extended period of time, the surrounding bone resorbs or collapses, preventing the placement of dental implants. When the bone is not adequate, bone grafting is a great treatment option to enhance or replace the area of lost bone. Bone can be taken from parts of the body or from synthetic material.

Bone Regeneration

Bone Regeneration is a periodontal surgical procedure that regenerates jaw bone and the surrounding tissue. This procedure is often performed to protect your existing teeth and the tissues that keep them in place from bacterial plaque. The gingival tissue is folded back to remove the disease-causing bacteria and membranes, bone grafts or tissue-stimulating proteins can be used to encourage the body’s natural ability to regenerate bone and tissue.

Our doctors utilize either xenograft (different species) or allograft (same species) grafting materials and use a specially prepared resorbable barrier membrane to secure the bone graft.

Once the bone has been regenerated, implants can be placed for optimal support and function.

Sinus Augmentation

A sinus augmentation is a surgery that adds bone to the patient’s upper jaw in the premolar and molar areas of their mouth. An incision is made to add bone where the premolar and molar teeth were previously located. A small circular shape is made in the bone to access the sinus and the sinus membrane is gently pushed up and away from the upper jaw. Once this is completed, bone grafting material is filled into the space where the sinus was previously located, the incision is closed and the healing process begins.

Often, our doctors can perform both sinus augmentation and implant placements simultaneously to reduce the number of surgical appointments and to shorten healing time.
