MILL CREEK, WA, March 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Before the development of implants, traditional dentures and bridges were the only solutions available to replacing a missing tooth or multiple teeth. Today, implants - titanium structures that are placed in the area where the tooth is normally occupied by the root - have been designed to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth, allowing Dr. Chad Slocum and Dr. Sara Lundgaard to help restore a patient's natural smile.
"Tooth loss affects both your appearance and the functionality of your teeth. It is no wonder why so many people are constantly seeking restorative treatments that bring their smile back to life," said Mill Creek dentist, Dr. Chad Slocum. "Today, there is an array of options available, with the most sought after treatment being dental implants because this treatment option offers a permanent solution to tooth loss, providing maximum strength and stability."
Dental implants are long lasting tooth root replacements that are securely placed into the jawbone to replicate the root of a single pre-existing tooth or multiple teeth. They are natural looking-virtually indistinguishable from other teeth-and provide the same function as a natural tooth root while preventing further decay, dental disease and bone deterioration.
The dental implant procedure is a multi-step process that involves placing metal anchors into the bone of the jaw, allowing the anchor and bone to fuse, placing an extension in the anchor, and fixing a prosthetic tooth, or crown, on the extension. Dr. Chad Slocum and Dr. Sara Lundgaard, dentists in Mill Creek, work together to supply their patients with the best treatments available.
Dental implants are an all-around better solution for restoring missing teeth. One of the main advantages of dental implants for Mill Creek patients is the esthetic implication involved. They look and feel like they are a person's natural teeth. Since implants are surgically placed into the structure of the jaw bone, they prevent the loss of bone and gum recession that often occurs with other tooth restoration procedures.
Not everyone is a good candidate in Mill Creek for dental implants. Patients must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant, as well as the commitment to maintaining proper oral hygiene. This includes exceptional oral hygiene and regular visits to Penny Creek Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. It is possible to live confidently with dental implants from Mill Creek dentists, Dr. Chad Slocum and Dr. Sara Lundgaard-call today.
