How Dental Implants Replace Teeth
Gaps left by missing teeth affect bite function and the health of the bone. Over time, surrounding teeth can shift into empty spaces, creating teeth alignment issues. Additionally, the bone can shrink or become misshapen due to a process called resorption. Traditional teeth replacement methods do not prevent these issues, while dental implants restore teeth from root to crown. With the implant acting as a new root, resorption can be reversed and patients obtain a permanent solution to missing teeth.
Implant-supported restorations resemble and function as well as natural teeth in the smile. Implants are designed to support restorations for a lifetime and grant a solution that other methods cannot beat. This treatment protects the health of existing teeth while improving bone health, offering comprehensive benefits.
Full Dental Implant Services in Lynnwood
We offer complimentary implant consultations, as part of our routine dental examinations. We also do so when patients require teeth extractions or are experiencing resorption due to extensive teeth loss. Good candidates for this treatment are those in good oral health and have ample bone to support implant placement. For those who do not have enough bone, Dr. Daining performs the necessary procedures to shore up the jaw’s strength. He also extracts teeth that cannot be saved and preserves the area with grafting procedures.
During placement, our dentist provides nitrous sedation if desired, but the discomfort is usually resolved with local anesthetics. Implants are surgically placed into the bone, which heals and fuses to the implant, and then a restoration is attached via an abutment.
We utilize trusted implant brands that are proven to last and work with top dental labs to fashion restorations. Consider our implant-supported restoration options:
• Crowns (Single Teeth)
• Bridges (Multiple Teeth in a Row)
• Dentures (Up to Whole Arches)
At our office, patients receive their final restorations on the same day as their placement procedure, although we recommend patients allow their bone to heal. Existing dentures can be adapted to be an implant attachment, reducing the cost of restoring teeth.
