If you are finally ready to do something about those loose dentures, or need to replace one or more missing teeth, consider dental implants as the permanent answer to your problem.

Dr. E. Richard Hughes, a Northern Virginia implant and general dentist, will receive Fellowship designation from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry on November 1, 2008 in San Diego at the American Academy of Implant Dentistry convention. Dr. Hughes has been practicing implant dentistry and in particular multimodal implant dentistry for 18 years. Dr. Hughes states "Over the past decade dental implants have become the state-of-art way to permanently replace missing teeth and old fashioned dentures and partials. Finally, the looseness of dentures can be completely eliminated."

Hands down this advanced dental treatment has helped tens of thousands of patients around the world. Here in Northern VA., which is beside Washington DC and Maryland, the placement and restoration of dental implants has become a completely predictable and cost effective treatment. Studies show that over 95 percent of dental implants placed are still functioning very well after five, ten and even fifteen years.    

Having dental implants can end the embarrassment of missing one's teeth and wearing dentures. They can even improve your confidence, health, life expectancy, appearance, self-esteem in social settings, in addition to giving you the ability to eat whatever you wish, states Dr. Richard Hughes. They provide a free "face lift" to the lower one third of the face, since they restore the correct dimensions to the jaws and teeth giving an improvement in cosmetics.

Thanks to multimodal dental implant treatment, many patients have been helped that were told they were not candidates for dental implants and are often treated and restored quickly; many times they are restored in a day to a couple of months without expensive and questionable bone grafting. These patients now enjoy their favorite foods again without the pain or embarrassment of eating in public.

A dental implant is a titanium tooth root substitute that gives a strong and stable foundation for new teeth to be attached for chewing. The implant anchors firmly into the jaw where the bone structure literally attaches to it and makes it rock solid. This integration into the bone is by a completely natural process and provides the stability that natural teeth once did. In everyday terms, this means that the replacement teeth can look, feel and work just like real teeth.

If you're finally ready to do something about those loose dentures, or need to replace one or more of your missing teeth, consider dental implants as the permanent answer to your problem.
