Learn more about Dental Implants
At Pacific Northwest Specialists in Periodontics and Dental Implants we offer single and full mouth dental implants. If you are missing a tooth or have loose teeth, a dental implant may be the ideal solution. Dental implants are created to match your natural teeth. They look, feel and function like real teeth.
In addition to replacing teeth, dental implants are often used to stabilize dentures. This process provides patients with a more secure feeling, while still allowing their dentures to be removed when needed. Advanced periodontal technology has made the placement of dental implants a highly accurate and successful technique. Most implant procedures can be completed a few hours.
What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts placed in the jawbone.
How do dental implants work?
Implants create a replacement for your missing tooth’s root. This provides a strong foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support a periodontal implant, more of your own teeth are left intact. Dental implants also allow easier access between teeth, making daily brushing and flossing effortless.
The benefits of dental implants include:
- Improved Function and Ability to Chew
- Improved Speech
- Improved Oral Health
- Improved Appearance
Types of Implant Treatment:
Replacing a Single Tooth-If you are missing a single tooth, you will need one single implant and a crown to replace it. Your dental implant will substitute both the natural tooth and its root.
Replacing Several Teeth-If you are missing several teeth, there are multiple treatment options. You may need multiple implants or an implant supported bridge. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of their roots.
Replacing All of Your Teeth-If you need to replace all of your teeth, Pacific Northwest Periodontics is now offering a new, state of the art treatment for tooth replacement. Visit our Teeth-in-a-Day page to see learn more about this excited technology.
