Revolutionary Tooth Replacement: Dental Implants
Are you living with holes in your smile left by missing teeth? Have you been struggling with the discomfort and insecurity of dentures? Are you ready for a tooth replacement option that better suits your lifestyle?
At Black Diamond Dentistry, we have turned to a revolutionary way to replace teeth. At our Black Diamond, WA office, we can rebuild your smile in a way that looks, feels, and functions just like the real thing: with dental implants.
What Is A Dental Implant?
A dental implant works as an artificial tooth root. They look similar to screws and are placed in the jawbone where they bond with the bone to create a strong base. Once the implant bonds to your jawbone, an abutment, or connector, is put on top of the dental implant to support the crown. A crown is then custom-made to match your teeth and connected to the implant to replace your missing tooth.
Dental implants are the strongest device available to replace missing teeth and support replacement teeth. They are the tooth replacement option that looks, feels, and functions the most naturally. Dental implants also prevent the deterioration of the jaw bone by providing the stimulation a healthy tooth’s roots would otherwise provide.
Replacing Teeth with Dental Implants
Typically, the procedure to place a dental implant takes several visits to our office. During each visit, we will explain each step of the process and make sure you are completely comfortable. If you are only replacing a single missing tooth, the crown will be placed once the implant heals.
However, if you are replacing several teeth, it is likely that several implants will be placed in your jaw before capping them with a dental bridge. An implant-retained bridge is longer-lasting than a traditional bridge and doesn’t require the healthy remaining teeth to be reduced in order to support it.
Sedation Dentistry for Optimal Comfort
If you are concerned about any discomfort you may experience during a dental implant procedure, rest assured that we have the tools to keep you relaxed and comfortable. At Black Diamond Dentistry, we offer sedation dentistry so that we can give our patients the best treatment possible. During your appointment, while discussing your dental implant procedure, we will go over the options available to ensure you experience minimal discomfort.
We will also share tips on how to make sure your healing process goes as smoothly as possible. Because much of the healing in between appointments is done at home, we want to make sure you feel confident and pain-free.
Our team has decades of experience in the field of dentistry. With this revolutionary tooth replacement option, we are confident we can restore your quality of life and give you the smile you deserve.
