Your oral health and functions rely on every tooth. Unfortunately, despite your best efforts to preserve your teeth, you have lost a few over the years. Now, your incomplete smile makes it difficult to chew certain foods while your self-esteem also suffers. At Lakeshore Dental VA, we have the solutions you need to replace multiple missing teeth. Besides traditional treatments, you can also enjoy the security of dental implants in Virginia Beach. We will help you make the best choice for your smile to restore your quality of life.

Over the next several weeks, your jawbone fuses to the posts, allowing them to potentially remain in place forever. After your jaw has healed, abutments are placed on each post to connect your custom-made restorations.
The implant posts act as new tooth roots, allowing you to enjoy various benefits that are not possible with other treatments, including:
