A Versatile Tooth Replacement Option for Chesapeake and Beyond

Do you need to replace one or more teeth? Achieving a full smile is possible with traditional restorative services, but functionality is limited. That’s why Estrada General, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry offers advanced restorative care with dental implants. With this versatile service, you can achieve results that look and feel natural. And because we’re equipped to handle both phases of care, we can complete your entire procedure under one roof instead of referring you to a specialist.

What are Dental Implants?

Traditional restorative services are attached using crowns, clasps, brackets, or adhesives. But with dental implants, replacement teeth are held in place by small titanium posts that mimic natural tooth roots, leading to more natural results.

Why is this significant? It’s because tooth roots have two important jobs. The first is anchoring teeth in place. The second is promoting the growth of new bone tissue in the jaw. When you lose a tooth, you also lose its root. As a result, the jaw loses bone over time. But dental implants can help you save and support you’re jaw by promoting tissue growth in addition to giving your smile a solid new foundation.

The Dental Implant Process

Treatment with dental implants occurs in two major stages. In the first stage, our Chesapeake dental team will surgically place one or more implant posts in your jaw. How many implants we place will depend on how many teeth you’re restoring. With dental implants, there’s an incredible amount of versatility; you can replace a single tooth, a few teeth, or an entire row of teeth. Once your implants are in place, we’ll then give them time to bond with your jawbone, which can take a few months.

In the second stage of treatment, known as the restoration phase, we will attach your customized crown, bridge, partial, or full denture to your exposed implant post(s). Most dental offices can help you with the restoration phase, but few specialize in placement and restoration. That’s what sets us apart. At Estrada General, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry, you never have to see an outside dentist; you can have your entire procedure completed by the team you already know and trust.

Do you want to know if you’re a candidate for dental implants. We would be happy to help with a consultation appointment. Call us today to reserve your appointment. Our office is located in the Greenbrier area of Chesapeake, on the corner of Kempsville and Volvo Parkway. We’re happy to serve patients from Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Suffolk, and all surrounding areas.
