Get Your Smile Back with Dental Implants from Our Newport News Team

Benjamin T. Watson DDS, PLC, knows losing a tooth is never a pleasant experience. However, it doesn’t have to mean holes in your smile or lifelong difficulty with speaking and eating. That’s because our local practice provides Newport News dental implants for patients of all ages. These are more permanent solutions than others and can replace not only natural teeth but also a tooth’s root and crown.

When undergoing a procedure for something so lasting, it’s essential to have a dentist who’s experienced and gentle. Benjamin T. Watson DDS, PLC, matches that description perfectly and is the ideal professional to place your implants with quality care.

What Are Implants?

Dental implants are simply “anchors” that permanently support replacement teeth. They are secure and durable, plus they can be cleaned and cared for, much like your natural teeth. The procedure requires a titanium root to be fitted into your jaw to replace the lost tooth’s root.

Once the implant is anchored into the bone, it requires anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months of healing, depending on the patient’s circumstances. Once the bone has healed, a support post and replacement tooth are anchored onto the implant. Our dentist is prepared to handle every part of this process.
