Dental Implants

dental implantDental implants are the perfect solution to the problem of missing teeth. Northwest Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery can help you regain a beautiful smile and a healthy, well-functioning mouth. Let us work in coordination with your general dentist to fill in the gaps of missing teeth.

Why Dental Implants?

Dental implants are metal dental devices used to replace the roots of missing teeth. Typically made from titanium, these tooth prosthetics are secured into your jaw. A crown is placed on top of the implant abutment to complete the restoration. There are many advantages to restoring your smile with dental implants:

Natural Appearance: Once the crown is in place, your implants won’t look any different than your teeth. You smile will be natural and beautiful.

Comfortable: Not only do implants look natural, but they feel natural, too. Once your gums have healed and you have become accustomed to your new tooth or teeth, you may even forget that you have dental implant(s).

Durability: Dental implants are highly durable and will last a lifetime when cared for properly. Good general oral hygiene is all that is needed — brushing, flossing, and rinsing with regularity. And don’t forget about regular dental checkups and cleanings with your general dentist.

Keep Your Teeth Intact: When choosing a dental bridge to replace missing teeth, neighboring healthy teeth will be compromised and used as anchors for the bridge. Dental implants do not require you to destroy healthy teeth. Instead, keep healthy teeth healthy! Additionally, dental implants stimulate and preserve bone and prevent additional tooth loss.

If you think a dental implant is the right solution for you, consult with your general dentist and ask for a referral to Northwest Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. Our oral surgeons are experienced and trained in the use of IV anesthesia, tooth extractions, bone grafting, sinus augmentations and the placement of dental implants. Our surgeons and staff will work cooperatively with your general dentist office to coordinate your entire treatment plan, including the final restoration.
