What Are Dental Implants?
Dealing with damaged teeth is necessary for the general health and appearance of your mouth. To allow Ashburn, VA patients to safely move past extracted or missing teeth, owner Dr. Joanna Claustro is extremely excited to provide lifelike dental implants for tooth replacement. A fixed implant is made up of a metal screw that acts as a stand-in tooth root. A personalized crown, bridge, or full arch replaces the erupted part of the lost tooth (or teeth). If you experience missing teeth or require tooth removal, arrange a visit at Joanna Claustro DMD & Associates and find out about your oral implant alternatives.
What to Expect from Dental Implants
The treatment for oral implants consists of the careful placement of the screw and the attachment of a lifelike oral replacement (like full-arch pieces, crowns, or bridges). As soon as the area is ready for surgery, it is desensitized with local anesthesia. Oral-conscious or IV sedation dentistry may also be utilized to help you feel calm throughout your session. The metal implant will be strategically secured within your jawbone at the correct spot and given a period of time to fuse with the jaw via a process referred to as osseointegration. Once the implant area has fully healed (usually at least six months afterward), Dr. Claustro will attach a specially made fixed denture, crown, or full-arch restoration and analyze the alignment of your jaw.

Dr Claustro and her team keep me coming back because of her and her awesome team. Always a great experience.
Dr Claustro is amazing. She’s hands down the best dentist I’ve been to. She’s conservative in her methods and applies practical guidance and education on treatments.
I never write reviews but I had to for this - absolutely amazing experience. Who knew a dentist could also change the way your face looks??? I have tried MANY different face treatments for melasma and aging, and I have never seen results like I did with Dr. Claustro. The Opus Plasma did wonders to diminish wrinkles and tighten my skin, with no downtime at all. I coupled my treatment with the Resurfacing treatment and just wow. Anyone that actually has melasma knows that it is never going to go away, but I have not seen anything diminish it's appearance like this and I have tried EVERYTHING. Add in the amazing staff and Dr. Claustro herself, just top notch. Run don't walk to try these treatments! You will thank me!
She and her staff were professional and very likable. I recommend that others seek her service.
One of them best Dentist that I have ever had, great staff and a wonderful office. Joanna is very skilled, knowledgeable and compassionate. She cares about her patients and is always working in your best interest.

Dental Implants FAQs
What can I eat after dental implant surgery?
After your dental implant surgery with Dr. Claustro and her team, you'll likely need to embrace a soft-foods diet for the first week or two. Nutrient-rich options like smoothies, protein shakes, and mashed potatoes ensure you don't miss out on essential nourishment. If your healing process is going smoothly, you might be able to introduce foods that require minimal chewing, such as noodles. As the weeks progress, you could gradually reintroduce chewy and crunchy items to your diet, but always check your healing status first to avoid compromising the surgical outcome.
How long will the dental implant(s) last?
Dental implants can be a lifelong solution with the right care and dental hygiene routine, which includes brushing, flossing, and routine cleanings. While this longevity isn't guaranteed, the dedicated team at Joanna Claustro DMD & Associates is here to guide you on how to make your implant(s) last. They'll also keep a watchful eye on your implant's health over time, ensuring that it continues to function optimally.
Is getting dental implants painful?
While dental implant procedures do involve a surgical cut into the gums, most patients report minimal pain. Dr. Claustro will first numb the area using a local anesthetic to maximize your comfort. Additionally, Joanna Claustro DMD & Associates offers sedation options for an even more relaxed experience. It's typical to experience some swelling, soreness, bruising, and sensitivity as the gums heal, but these are normal reactions and can usually be managed effectively with over-the-counter pain relievers and ice packs.
