Dental Implants for Fairfax Station Patients

If you are missing one or several teeth, dental implants may be the best option for you. Dental implants are considered the “gold standard” of tooth replacement options, and for several great reasons. 

When replacing a tooth (or several teeth), you not only want the result to look great, but also restore the feel and function of natural teeth. The great thing about dental implants is that the anodized titanium within the implant post integrates with your jaw bone tissue in a process known as osseointegration. This process simulates the way natural tooth roots are integrated with the surrounding tissue. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a permanent solution to tooth loss (edentulism).

The Benefits of Dental Implants

As we previously alluded to, dental implants offer numerous benefits that make them a more attractive option than bridges and dentures. Here are some of the top benefits of dental implants:


No other tooth replacement option comes close to delivering the same functionality as dental implants. Dental implants provide roughly the same functionality as natural teeth. Once the tissue around the implant has healed and the definitive restoration (crown or bridge) has been placed, you can essentially eat all your favorite foods – including steak and hard candies!

Maintain facial appearance

With conventional dentures, your jawbone will shrink over time since the tissue is not receiving the necessary mechanical stimulation needed to generate new tissue. Over time, this can give your face a "sunken-in" appearance. Dental implants, on the other hand, keep the jaw bone engaged, which helps to maintain more jaw bone tissue and thus preserve the appearance of the lower face.


Crafted from medical-grade titanium, the implant post is designed to last a lifetime. Just like natural teeth, dental implants do require regular care and maintenance to prevent infection, such as peri-implantitis, which can lead to implant failure. 


When placed correctly, dental implants should be indistinguishable from natural teeth. At Hoyos & Pinto Dentistry, we use the latest techniques and high-quality materials to ensure implants have an esthetically pleasing emergence profile. Our dental lab partner will also work to ensure your restoration, whether it's a crown or bridge, matches the shade and luster of the surrounding teeth. 

The great thing about dental implants is that they function just like natural teeth, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods, speak with ease, and smile with confidence. Unlike dentures, which can irritate the gums, implants are firmly held in place, so there is no concern for discomfort while you speak and chew.
