How We Can Give You a New Tooth in Just 3 Steps

If you are missing a tooth, you probably already feel self-conscious about it. People might even make unfair judgments about you if your smile has a gap in it, particularly near the front of your mouth. Another concern you might not be aware of is that having one missing tooth can often lead to the loss of more teeth.

It’s important to take care of a missing tooth, not only for esthetics but to preserve the health of the rest of your teeth. Dental implants from your Woodinville dentist make it easy to get the form and function of your smile back.

In the following three steps, you can have a tooth replacement that looks and feels very close to your natural tooth.

Step 1—Placing the Dental Implant

Usually made of titanium, a metal that is well received by the body, dental implants are permanently placed into the jawbone to take the place of the missing tooth’s root. After a healing process of a few months, the implants fully integrate into the jawbone.

Step 2—Placing the Abutment

This is the piece that fits on top of the dental implant on which the prosthetic tooth is placed. The gum around the abutment must heal adequately before your dentist can put the restoration on it.

Step 3—Placing the Restoration

When the implant site heals completely, a prosthetic tooth, or crown, can be attached to the abutment. You will be able to chew all of your favorite foods and smile without worry.

Don’t let a missing tooth put the rest of your teeth at risk! With dental implants from your Woodinville dentist Woodin Creek Dental, you can restore your smile and your ability to chew—and protect your oral health. Call us today to find out if dental implants are right for you.
