Dr. Brent Moses offers full services for dental implants. In many cases, Dr. Moses will be able to surgically place the dental implant in his Virginia Beach dentist office. In other cases, he may work with a local oral surgeon or periodontist to coordinate the surgical phase of treatment. This means that as a patient, you benefit from the convenience and savings of staying in one office from start to finish. Dr. Moses will monitor your entire dental implant treatment plan for consistent and quality dental care.
Dental Implants offer many cosmetic benefits as well as health benefits. Dental implants offer our patients a stable and healthy oral foundation for a lifetime of beautiful smiles. Dental implants are the most natural-looking and advanced solution for the replacement of missing teeth. There are many cosmetic and health benefits of dental implants including:
Permanent solution for missing teeth – Dental implants are surgically implanted making them permanent. No need to worry about them falling out or slipping. No need to worry about adhesives. Dental implants are also extremely durable and will last a lifetime if cared for properly.
No food restrictions – Other dental restorations can slip around making it every difficult to eat a healthy diet. Dentures alone only deliver about a 30-40% normal chewing function. With dental implants there are no restrictions on what you can eat since they are durable, stable and permanent.
Improved appearance and self-esteem – Very simply put, dental implants are the only solution that functions, feels and looks just like your natural teeth. They are strong and stable and truly the next best thing to your real teeth. You’ll be able to smile instead of trying to hide it.
Improved speech – Other dental restorations can shift, slip and even fall out of your mouth when you talk. This can cause you to mumble or slur your words while in conversations creating a very embarrassing situation. Dental implants are surgically implanted and will not budge while you speak.
98% success rate – In general, dental implants hold a very high success rate. Every patient is different therefore your success will depend on many factors. Be sure to discuss these factors with Dr. Moses at your consultation.
Improved oral health – Getting dental implants does not require damaging surrounding teeth as a tooth-supported bridge does. A dental implant is surgically placed only the space where the missing tooth is located leaving your healthy teeth alone.
Easy to care for – Dentures require special care that is costly and time consuming. Dental implants require the same care as your natural teeth and that eliminates a lot of extra work. You can brush them and floss them without the worry of damaging them.
Bone loss associated with tooth loss – If are missing teeth, that void can cause bone loss and deterioration in your jawbone. Virginia Beach dentist, Dr. Moses, will recommend dental implants over other dental restorations because they are the only option for missing teeth that stimulates the jaw bone which helps stimulate bone growth. This will prevent bone loss.
