Have you recently suffered from an infection or accident in the mouth leading to you losing a tooth or multiple teeth? Or you had an infection that led to a tooth extraction? If so, dental implants may be the solution for your smile! Here at Quail Ridge Dental, we want to assist you to give you your best smile that will last for years to come. This includes the functionality of your speaking and eating abilities.
The restoration of your smile with dental implants are a preferred method due to the solid structure built into the jawbone. The structure is made of titanium, and it is placed after an incision is made in your gums and a small channel is drilled into the jawbone. The titanium implant is screwed into the opening. The gums are then sutured closed.
Because of its durability, the titanium will fuse with the bone in a process known as osseointegration. If needed, assistance for your implant may be needed with a denture, crown, or bridge. When your dental implant has been put in place, your dentist will provide you with information needed for the care.
To get a dental implant, give Dr. Turrell Beck a call at 509-396-6950 to schedule a consultation or make an appointment. Our dental team at Quail Ridge Dental in Kennewick, Washington, strives to provide the best dental care for our patients, so give us a call today for your tooth restoration.
