At JB Dental Associates and TMD & Sleep Center, we are proud that Dr. Fadi Alhrashi has been recognized with board status in implant dentistry through the American Board of Oral Implantology (ABOI). The American Board of Implantology/Implant Dentistry is not a specialty certificate; it is designated to symbolize the highest level of competence in all facets of implant dentistry, both surgical and restorative. Certification by the ABOI/ID attests to the fact that a dentist has demonstrated knowledge, ability and proficiency in implant dentistry through a rigorous examination process. If you are a patient looking for a highly qualified dental implantologist, call us today at 703-444-4188.
We may not like it, but sometimes our teeth can be damaged to the point of needing to be extracted. When this happens, it is crucial that any missing teeth be replaced as quickly as possible. That is why our dentists may offer dental implants in Sterling, Virginia. Dr. Joyce Bahng and associates have plenty of experience placing implants and can help assuage any fear related to replacement teeth. Whether you need a single tooth implant or a full arch replacement, our JB Dental Associates and TMD & Sleep Center team can discuss with you all the information you need to ascertain if dental implants are right for you.
One of the many advantages of dental implants is that they feel and function much like your natural teeth, and much like your natural teeth, you need to take proper care of your implants. With proper care, your dental implants can last you a lifetime. Here are a few tips that can help you keep you and your smile happy and healthy:
- Brush and Floss: Brushing twice a day and flossing daily can help prevent plaque and bacteria from building up around your implant, which will help your whole mouth stay healthy.
- Quit Smoking: Smoking can contribute to implant failure by weakening your bone structure.
- Attend Regular Dental Appointments: Our dentists can regularly check to make sure your implant is in good condition, and they can help clean plaque from the places in your mouth that regular brushing and flossing cannot reach.
- Avoid Chewing Hard Foods: Chewing on things like ice and hard candy can break your implant as well as your natural teeth.
