Whether you’ve lost a single tooth or multiple teeth, it’s essential that you restore your smile as soon as possible. Removable options only replace those parts of the smile visible above the gum line, but dental implants replace both the roots and crowns of missing teeth. At the Dent-Plant Dental Implant Center of Tysons, we offer a wide range of tooth replacement options, including the most innovative implant technologies. We understand that one of the main reasons patients avoid tooth replacement with implants is the time commitment. We are proud to provide the option of “express” implants to expedite the process. If you want to find out more, call our team to schedule an implant consultation in our state-of-the-art Tysons dental office.
Express implants are uniquely designed, high quality dental implants. The surface of these special implants is manufactured in such a way that it speeds up the healing process by attracting bone-forming cells faster than traditional implants. Due to this faster healing, a crown can be placed onto this implant in just four to six weeks as opposed to three to four months of waiting time with traditional implants. For many patients, this faster approach may be more suitable to their dental needs and time constraints.
The placement and restoration of express implants is exactly the same as the traditional implant process, the only difference being that the waiting time between implant placement and attachment of the final crown is much shorter. Once the express implant is surgically placed, patients need to only wait four to six weeks before receiving the final crown. You’ll leave our office with a restored smile in less than half the time necessary compared to traditional dental implants.
We will carefully evaluate your smile during the treatment planning process to help you determine whether or not you are a candidate for express implants. In most cases, an express implant is only beneficial to those patients who don’t require a tooth extraction or bone graft at the same time as the implant placement.
Due to the supreme quality of the implant used, express implants do have an additional cost of just $499. Since patients save months of waiting time and require fewer visits, the additional fee may be worth the investment.
