A missing tooth or teeth can do more than have a significant effect on your comfort, ability to speak clearly, and cause embarrassment. When you lose a tooth, the gap has an impact on the state of not just your oral health, but your overall health as well.
The roots of a tooth do more than hold the tooth in place–they also stimulate the bone tissue in your jaw. Without this stimulation, the jawbone begins to atrophy. As this deterioration continues, surrounding teeth begin to shift, and your face begins to appear sunken and aged. The only dental treatment available that can stop further bone loss is dental implants.
The titanium base of dental implants work in the same fashion as the roots of a missing tooth and provide the jawbone with the necessary stimulation to cease any further atrophy. We partner with Horizon Anesthesia to provide world-class sedation services for our patients.
Straightening crooked teeth can improve the appearance of your smile and the function of your bite. Dr. Ahn uses advanced technologies, techniques, and materials to provide a full range of orthodontic options to the community of McLean, VA.

You can learn more about the orthodontic options provided at our McLean, VA, dentistry office during a visit with our team.

A Better Way To Treat Gum Disease
Our practice is excited to introduce LANAP with PerioLase, a sophisticated laser-based approach to treating advanced gum disease. When pockets of bacteria form between the gum tissue and your teeth, it is very important to eliminate the bacteria and encourage the reattachment of the soft tissue. This traditionally required using a scalpel to access the treatment area, followed by the placement of sutures to close the incisions.
Instead, we insert an ultra-fine fiber optic delivery system into the treatment area to deliver laser energy that eliminates bacteria, leaves healthy tissue undisturbed, and spurs healthy tissue regeneration. There is no downtime, no sutures, and in many cases, no need for pain meds. PerioLase is just one of the many ways we are using technology to deliver better results to our patients.
The combined specialized training of our dentists makes our McLean, VA, practice uniquely all-inclusive and convenient for patients seeking a full range of dental care treatments under one roof.
