Mill Creek, WA Dental Implants & Restorative Dentistry
A dental implant can be thought of as an artificial tooth root. When a tooth is badly broken down or is lost due to periodontal disease, a dental implant can be an excellent option. After a tooth is removed the remaining socket is grafted in order to enhance the site to receive a titanium root form implant after healing occurs.
The implant is placed with the help of a customized surgical guide and then healing is allowed to occur while the implant osseointegrates (connects itself) with the bone. After this, a crown can be built on top of the implant which can look and function just like a normal tooth. Implants are very predictable and all of the work can be performed in our office.
