Sterling, VA (PRWEB) April 16, 2015
Dr. Jean-Claude Kharmouche and Dr. Justin Hardison, leading periodontists in the Sterling area, are now accepting new patients who are in need of dental implants without requiring a referral from a general dentist. Patients can now replace their missing teeth in Sterling and Gainesville, VA without spending the extra time and money required for multiple office visits with multiple dentists. Estimates state that 69 percent of adults lose one or more teeth before the age of 44 due to injury or tooth decay and 26 percent will lose all of their teeth by the age of 74. Implants are one of the best methods available today to help these individuals reclaim their smiles and regain their self-confidence.
Dental implants have been used for decades in the U.S. to replace missing teeth. They are a permanent tooth replacement option that can easily last a lifetime if properly cared for. The implants are so long-lasting due to the material with which they are made. The implant is made up of a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jaw. During a healing period, the implant becomes fully integrated with the jaw bone in a process known as osseointegration.
Patients who opt for other methods of replacing their missing teeth in Sterling and Gainesville, VA often experience problems. Dentures have a tendency to click and slip when patients chew or speak, which can be embarrassing. Bridges, which use healthy teeth as anchors, can cause the healthy teeth to become damaged over time. Implants are also the only tooth replacement option that helps prevent the jaw from deteriorating due to bone loss.
Patients who would like to learn more about how dental implants may help them reclaim their smiles can visit either of the doctors’ offices located in Sterling and Gainesville, VA. During an appointment, Drs. Kharmouche and Hardison will create a personalized plan to help each patient with missing teeth in Sterling and Gainesville, VA get the smiles they have always wanted.
