Washington DC Dental Implant Evaluation
If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by Dr. Markowitz. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure comfortable and successful.
Dr. Markowitz surgically places the implant and completes all subsequent restorations allowing his patients to have the entire implant procedure done in one office.
Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are titanium anchors, which act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Small posts are then attached to the implant. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.
For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums, gradually bonding with the jawbone.
After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. The implants will be uncovered through the gums, and we will attach a small healing collar to promote proper healing of the gums. Dr. Markowitz can then start making your new teeth. An impression must be taken. Then posts or attachments can be connected to the implants. The replacement teeth are then made over the posts or attachments. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption of their daily life.

I truly could not have asked for a more amazing experience! My self confidence had been shattered due to my dental condition and ill-fitting dentures. This long overdue process finally gives me the smile that I've dreamt about since I was a child. I'm so happy I chose Dr. Eric Markowitz. Yay to a new chapter of my life!!
