What Are Dental Implants?
Missing teeth might seem like a simple cosmetic issue, but the truth is that they can seriously affect the structure and overall health of your mouth. To help patients in Washington, D.C. who are dealing with one or more missing teeth, Dr. Kami'Lah Brown is pleased to offer high-quality dental implants. An implant utilizes a sturdy post that acts as a stand-in tooth root, and a unique crown, bridge, or denture fills in for the viewable part of the missing tooth (or teeth). Whether you've suffered a lost tooth or recently had an extraction, visit the team at Presidential Dental Group to discover more about fixed dental implants and other restorative solutions for missing teeth.
What Is the Dental Implant Process Like?
To prepare your jaw for your replacement tooth (or teeth), the implant will first need to be set into the jaw with surgery. Dental implant surgery can be done with either local or general anesthesia, depending on how many posts need to be placed. Once the anesthesia is working, the titanium implant will be installed into your jaw. Over the next several months, the implant should begin to fuse with the surrounding tissue through a process called osseointegration. Once the surgical area has completely healed (usually 6 – 9 months afterward), Dr. Brown will place a unique implant crown, denture, or full-arch piece and analyze the alignment of your bite.
Following your dental implant surgery, you may experience swelling, discoloration, and pain around the treated area. Prescribed or nonprescription pain relievers and cold compresses may help diminish any post-op aches or pains. Once your restoration is complete, you can care for it by brushing and flossing consistently. Dr. Brown will continue to monitor the condition of your implant during future cleanings at Presidential Dental Group, but with the proper care, dental implants can last for decades.
Presidential Dental Group Reviews
Dr. Hancock comes as advertised, professional, always a warm and welcoming experience. This was my second visit and she provides great insight in regards to the task at hand. I’ll say I’m glad to have Dr. Hancock oversee my oral health.
Everyone at Presidential is amazing!
Someone please explain to me why I walked out feeling INCREDIBLY BLESSED after my first dental appointment with Dr. Brown & her amazing team?! 🙌🏼 10/10 recommend!🎖️ I am new to DC so finding a new dentist was very scary for me. I’ve had horrible dentist experiences when I was younger that has given me hardcore dental anxiety. Bc of this, I am SO THANKFUL for finding Dr. Brown & her team 🙌🏼 From the great vibes, awesome music, incredible staff, amazing service - I can’t believe this is the dental experience I’ve been missing out on for most of my life! 🤯 Does anyone know of any dental awards I can nominate this practice for bc they deserve to win all of them!!🏆
When I walked into this office I was in the midst of a true dental emergency. A crown had popped off in the front of my mouth. I had visited at least 3 other dentists for implant consultations, but not one helped me. They just said I needed dental care immediately. I had booked with Dr. Brown on Zoc Doc, but I went on a Saturday and was seen by Dr. Hancock. Dr. Hancock is an excellent dentist!!! Not only did she painlessly deal with my tooth (an extraction was needed), but she helped me calm down and didn't judge me. When she saw I was freaking out she told me to focus on one thing at a time so I didn't become overwhelmed. I grew up with my grandparents and both had a full set of dentures. Nonetheless, it's not their fault. I can say I didn't take care of my teeth. I didn't brush and floss. I ate lots of sugary foods and now here I am. I'm going back this weekend for a treatment plan. I know I have a journey in front of me, but I trust Dr. Hancock's skill and I know I can take it one thing at a time. I also love the receptionist and the dental hygienist who work on the Saturdays that I've visited. Both know a lot about dentistry as well, help with billing, and explain everything thoroughly in addition to reminding you of all appointments. This is an excellent practice!! I had several consultations in my home state of NJ and the prices here are much more affordable. I feel like this is the right place for me to begin my journey toward dental health.
Great work by my hygienist and the team!
