Diagram of dental implant with post.At Oral Solutions NW we offer several implant-related treatments to replace one or more missing teeth. We specialize in implant treatment because we believe that dental implants are the ideal solution for tooth loss.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium screw that we surgically embed deep into the jawbone. Once the implant is in place, it will slowly fuse to your jaw through the process of osseointegration. After a brief healing period, the implant screw will be able to support a restoration against the strongest forces of your bite. Dental implants can be used to support a single crown, a partial bridge, and a full-arch restoration.

Single Tooth Implant

If you are missing a tooth, you may be wondering what to do next. We believe a single tooth implant replacement may be the answer. A dental implant is a small titanium post that serves as the root component of a prosthetic tooth. This implant is later attached to an abutment, or support structure, which links the post to your restoration. For a single tooth replacement, your restoration will most likely be a ceramic crown.

Full Arch Implants

If you are missing all or most of your teeth, everyday activities such as eating, speaking, and smiling can become daunting tasks. Luckily, there are more tooth replacement options than ever before. We offer full-arch restorations designed to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile. The type of restoration you receive depends on your desired results and individual situation.

Implant Retained Fixed Bridge

Implant-retained fixed bridges are a type of dental prosthesis that replaces missing teeth using dental implants. They consist of two or more implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone and act as artificial tooth roots, which support a dental bridge. This type of restoration is commonly used to replace multiple missing teeth, where conventional dental bridges may not be feasible due to insufficient support from remaining teeth.

Implant-Supported Denture

An implant-supported denture is similar to All-on-4 but usually requires more implants. We may recommend an implant-supported denture if you want a better alternative to traditional dentures. A traditional denture is a removable appliance that rests on the gums. Because it is not secured by implants, many patients experience difficulty eating, discomfort, and even embarrassing slips.

Am I a Candidate for Implants?

If you are in good oral and overall health, you should qualify for implant treatment. If you have experienced significant bone deterioration due to tooth loss, you may need a bone graft first. During your consultation, Dr. Jeffrey Crowley will be able to determine if implants are right for you. This usually involves a series of diagnostic tests that may include digital x-rays and CBCT scans.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth. This makes implants a more convenient, durable, secure, and aesthetically pleasing option over traditional restorations. The numerous benefits of dental implants have made them the industry standard for tooth replacement!

Dental Implant FAQ

We believe patient education is the cornerstone of good oral health. During your initial appointment, Dr. Jeffrey Crowley will be happy to answer any questions you have regarding dental implants. This is also an excellent opportunity for you to voice any concerns. Staying informed can help you better maintain your restoration and prevent potential problems.
