Implant Placement and Restoration in Spokane, WA
Dental implants are a complete way to replace the entire tooth, from root to crown. This procedure both restores the esthetics and function of the smile.
A titanium post is placed directly into the jaw bone to replace the roots of teeth, an area that traditional restorations like bridges and dentures alone fail to address. This biocompatible titanium fuses to the bone to generate united support for both the prosthetic and existing dental structure. As an esthetic alternative to titanium, we also offer zirconia to imitate the color of a natural tooth. An abutment connects the prosthetic to the implant post to complete the restoration.
Single-unit crowns replace a single missing tooth at any point in the smile. A post is directly placed in the space where the tooth’s root once was, replacing the support needed to preserve existing dental structure. Crowns using dental implants also help to maintain the alignment of existing teeth.
Multi-unit bridges replace a short row of teeth using anywhere from two to three dental implants strategically placed for optimal stability and strength. Whereas a traditional bridge uses adjacent teeth to anchor the prosthesis in place, this procedure preserves existing dentition by using the jaw bone for support.
Implant-supported dentures can replace an entire arch of teeth using a prosthetic made to look like natural gums and teeth. This method utilizes four to eight dental implants strategically placed for optimal strength and support.
