Dental Implants—a better, longer-lasting solution for missing teeth

Dental implants are a state-of-the-art new technology that allows your missing teeth to be replaced with biocompatible titanium posts and lifelike porcelain crowns. Once placed and restored, implants function and look exactly like natural teeth, features that our patients greatly appreciate.

We’ve found that many of our patients come to us with questions about how dental implants are placed, why dental implants are different from other tooth-replacement options, and whether they themselves are good candidates for implants.

Hopefully, the information provided here will help to answer some of your questions. Of course, if you’d like more information, you are always welcome to call our Issaquah dental office!

What Are Dental Implants?

The actual “implant” part of a dental implant is a small post crafted from titanium, a biocompatible metal, that is placed surgically in the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the implant, a process known as restoring the implant. This crown is specially designed to blend in flawlessly with your other teeth, which means that nobody will ever know your secret unless you tell them.

Implant-Supported Bridges

Implant-supported bridges are similar to traditional bridges, but are supported by implants rather than the patient’s adjacent teeth. Implant-supported bridges are used when the patient is missing three or more teeth in a row and are stronger, more durable, and can withstand greater bite pressure than traditional bridges.

A missing tooth can impact your appearance, ability to chew food, and can be costly to fix. Dental bridges offer an affordable solution. We can help you achieve a stunning result that is high quality and natural in appearance. A bridge is a number of crowns connected together that fills the space left by a missing tooth without the need for surgery. It stays above the gum line and is placed on the teeth surrounding the missing tooth. Here are a few reasons why we recommend dental bridges for many of our patients:

  • Bridges are generally a less expensive option in comparison to implants.
  • They do not require surgery or healing time.
  • Offer a natural appearance by matching color, shape and size to your existing teeth.
  • You can complete a bridge in just a few visits.
