Missing teeth causes negative physical and psychological effects. People stop smiling to hide the fact they have a missing tooth or teeth. Some people go as far as socially isolating themselves. Not only does tooth loss causes people to feel and look older but it also lowers self-confidence. Physically, missing teeth can affect speech, bite, chewing (affects the digestive system), and overtime it shifts the position of your other teeth. Nowadays, Implant dentistry treatment is considered the gold standard when it comes to restoring your missing teeth. If you’re missing a tooth or need to have a tooth pulled, visit Dr. Foad Farhoumand and Dr. Farah Farhoumand and their team at Farhoumand Dentistry in Vienna, Virginia. They can evaluate you to see if you’re a good candidate for a dental implant and schedule your treatment. Schedule your implant consultation by using the online scheduler or by calling the office.

These fixtures are biocompatible and completely safe for the human body. Once these screws integrate with your natural bone your dentist can place a crown prosthesis simulating your own natural dentition.
