A dental implant is a prosthetic replacement for a missing tooth. Natural teeth consist of the crown and the root. The crown is the visible top section that is covered with white enamel. Supporting the crown is the tooth root, which extends into the jawbone. The root is the part of the tooth that is effectively replaced by an implant. The top of the tooth is replaced with an abutment and lab made crown.
We are planning to reopen on Monday April 6th, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
In the meantime, our office will only see emergency patients till further notice.
In the event of a dental emergency please contact Dr. Kassem at 703-431-7914.
