Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, you are not alone. Tooth loss is fairly common among adults and can come from a variety of factors including poor diet, trauma, and lack of proper oral hygiene. While you may think that a single missing tooth is not a big deal, it is actually extremely important to treat missing teeth as soon as possible. Without treatment, missing teeth can lead to gum disease, bone tissue loss, and decay of remaining teeth.
Fortunately, Dr. Jean-Claude Kharmouche is an experienced periodontist who offers many treatment options to restore health and beauty to your smile. Dental implants may be the right solution for your situation, and they offer many benefits to the right patients. Costs can vary depending on your exact issues and treatment plan. Here are some factors that can affect the cost of dental implants in Leesburg, VA.
Number and Type of Implants
Dr. Kharmouche may recommend dental implants for a single missing tooth or implant-supported dentures if you have multiple missing teeth. You may also require extractions of severely decayed and damaged teeth. The number of implants is one determining factor in how much your implants will cost. Multiple single implants and implant-supported dentures require additional materials and a longer implantation procedure.
If your tooth loss is due to gum disease, it is extremely important to restore the health and strength of your gums before completing the implant procedure. The costs will vary depending on the gum disease treatment Dr. Kharmouche recommends.
Untreated tooth loss can lead to loss of tissue in the jawbone. While dental implants can encourage healthy bone growth once installed, you may require a bone graft to make your jaw strong enough to hold the implants.
