Dental Implant Placement
Dental Implant Placement in Blaine, WA
If you’ve lost one or more teeth, you’re probably looking for an attractive and easy-to-care-for solution. Dentures can work in many circumstances, but they are not secure and must be removed for cleaning and sleeping. A dental bridge may be another possibility, but these require removal of your tooth structures. However, dental implants basically allow us to create a fake tooth that is fixed and does not involve removal of your tooth structures.
Dr. Yoon will first examine you to determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implants. This evaluation may involve digital x-rays, including 3D x-rays. During the procedure, you’ll receive local anesthetic for pain control followed by placement of the implants and possible bone graft. Often times, it is possible to place an implant the same day right after the tooth extraction.
The implants will need a few months to heal and attach to the underlying bone. There are temporary options during this time, if needed. You’ll receive your permanent crowns after the implants are fully integrated.
