Dental Implants Issaquah- Discovery Dental

Dental Implants

Even with regular brushing, flossing, and professional dental care, you may eventually lose some of your teeth to disease. Injuries are another major cause of tooth loss. Regardless of how you lost your teeth, replacing them with one or more implants can help improve your smile and confidence as well as restore your oral health.

A dental implant is an artificially created root shaped like a post that is surgically implanted into your jawbone. We create the root from titanium and then affix the replacement tooth to the post. You have the option of either permanent or removable implants. We typically recommend permanent implants because they are more stable and mimic the look and function of natural teeth more closely.

Single or Multiple Implant Options

If you need a single tooth replaced, one of the best implant dentist Issaquah can offer does this with one replacement tooth and an implant. For patients who are missing several consecutive teeth, a permanent bridge supported by several implants is a viable option. When all natural teeth are missing, our dentist affixes a full denture or bridge with the assistance of several implants.

Advantages of Dental Implants Over Bridges or Dentures

People with bridges or dentures often complain that they can’t smile or eat with confidence because the devices are unstable. In contrast, implants are affixed to the bone and look nearly identical to natural teeth. They also give you a stronger bite. Another major advantage is that implants don’t affect the health of your remaining teeth because they don’t rely on them for support.

Post-Treatment Care of Your Implants

It’s important to care for your replacement teeth in the same manner as your natural teeth. The best way to ensure a long lifespan for your implants is to brush and floss daily in addition to keeping your appointments for regular check-ups.

Dental Implants Issaquah

We offer the following dental implant services in Issaquah to our patients:

  • Autogenous Bone Grafting: If the area we’ve identified for a dental implant doesn’t have an adequate amount of bone to support the implant, we will need to take bone from another part of your mouth and transfer it there. This is typically from the chin area or the back of your jaw which previously held your wisdom teeth.
  • Implant Site Development: When an infected tooth is removed, it often results in bone loss around the site of the infection. We complete the bone graft while removing your diseased tooth in order to facilitate placement of an implant in the future.
  • Maintenance: Your new dental implant accumulates tartar and plaque just as your natural teeth would. That is why regular cleaning is essential to ensure the implant and the area surrounding it stays clean and free of infection. This is true whether you have one implant or several. Our staff will discuss a cleaning schedule with you once your implant work is complete.
  • Sinus Lift Augmentation: When a patient loses his or her back teeth for any reason, it often causes the sinuses to become enlarged. This makes it impossible to place a dental implant in the upper back areas of the mouth due to the air-filled space created by the sinuses. With this procedure, we restore the sinuses to their previous size and replace the lost bone. After allowing up to 12 months for the bone graft to heal, we place the new dental implant.
  • Computer-Enhanced Treatment Planning: Our 3-D dental scanning technology allows us to accurately evaluate the quality, number, and location of your jawbones. This information is essential to ensure the correct placement of your new dental implants.
