Virginia Beach, VA restorative dentist Dr. Cappy Sinclair provides complete implant services under one roof.

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically implanted into a patient’s jaw bone. The biocompatible post naturally fuses with the bone creating a permanent and secure bond. The implant takes about 2-3 months to completely integrate with your jaw. Once healed, the implant stimulates natural bone regeneration and stabilizes the oral foundation. Dental implants can help prevent jaw recession, and shifting of teeth that is commonly associated with untreated missing teeth. Healed dental implants are capped with either a dental crown, bridge, or denture for a permanent dental restoration.
