Periodontal Treatment .
Periodontal treatment is necessary when various conditions affect the health of your gums and the regions of your jawbone that hold your teeth in place. Retaining your teeth is directly dependent on proper periodontal care and maintenance. Healthy gums enhance the appearance of your teeth, like a frame around a beautiful painting. When your gums become unhealthy, they can either recede or become swollen and red. In later stages, the supporting bone is destroyed and your teeth will shift, loosen, or fall out. These changes not only affect your ability to chew and speak. They also spoil your smile. Our office strives to provide quality, comfortable periodontal treatment to patients of any age.
Dental Implants .
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. People with missing teeth will regain the ability to eat virtually anything and smile with confidence knowing that their teeth appear natural and their facial contours will be preserved. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. Periodontist, Dr. Wyman was one of the first doctors in Springfield, VA and one of the first in the country to place Titanium Dental Implants. Dr. Karapetian has received extensive training in the placement of dental implants at one of the premier Periodontics programs in the country.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! With implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.
