Dental Implant Restoration

If you have missing teeth, dental implant restoration from our Issaquah dentist can restore your smile!

dental implants

When you are missing some or all of your natural teeth, dental implants are a popular and attractive option to removable dentures. Patients appreciate the fact that implants remain in the mouth permanently and function exactly the same as natural teeth. If you have missing teeth, speak to Dr. Vanama about restoring them with dental implants. It is essential to do this as soon as possible to prevent problems with bite, alignment, facial sagging, speech, and several other issues.

The Process of Receiving Dental Implants

You must have sufficient bone strength in the area to receive the dental implant in order for Dr. Vanama to complete the procedure. If you do not, she will complete a bone graft first. This involves removing a small amount of bone from one area of your mouth and transferring it to the implant area. After completing an oral exam, X-rays, and impressions of your mouth, your dentist in Issaquah is ready to start the first phase of providing you with dental implants.

An important benefit of dental implants is that they provide you with artificial tooth roots as well as replacement teeth. Dr. Vanama screws small titanium rods into your jaw bone called abutments. These serve as your new roots. You need to wait several weeks to months for your jaw and gums to heal after this part of the procedure. This is necessary to allow your new roots to fuse with existing bone in a process known as osseointegration. Dr. Vanama may also use dental implants as an anchor for removable dentures.

Dr. Vanama attaches your replacement teeth to the abutments once she feels satisfied with the amount of healing and osseointegration that has taken place. Dental implants are constructed from porcelain and metal, which makes them indistinguishable from your natural teeth. You can smile, eat, and speak confidently knowing that your implants won’t fall out and that others have no idea you have had dental restoration completed at all.

Success Rates and Longevity of Dental Implants

According to the American Dental Association, dental implants have a 95 percent success rate with natural bone and an 85 to 90 percent success rate with grafted bone. Patients who smoke experience dental implant failure two and one-half times more often than non-smokers. Meticulous oral hygiene is important, as is keeping your regularly scheduled appointments with Dr. Vanama. These are the best ways to ensure that your new implants last for a lifetime.
