Our dentist in University Place
at Light Dental Studios of University Place offers implants to our patients in the University Place community to help regain normal function of a missing tooth without being forced to resort to a bridge or a denture. Implant consultations
are always free in any of our offices.
- The implant will fuse with the existing bone.
- The new implant will support your teeth firmly and safely.
- Your new implants are aesthetically pleasing.
- You will no longer have pain during talking or eating.
- The dental implant will prevent progressive bone atrophy.
A dental implant is a titanium fixture that is placed into the bone under gums of the mouth. After the implant body is placed the implant will be left untreated for a period of 4-6 months. During this time, the bone will grow around the implant in a process called osseointegration
The next step in the process is to attach an abutment to the tooth. This is achieved by exposing the top of the implant and placing the abutment. This is the part of the implant that will support the final crown.
Finally, an impression is taken of the implant and a final restoration is crafted. This restoration will be comfortable and cosmetically pleasing. Your completed implant will be fully functional, allowing you to resume normal activities.
Whatever your dental health situation is, your University Place dentist
at Light Dental Studios of University Place and their staff can help you feel good about smiling.
