What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a surgical dental treatment used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants in Ellensburg, Washington are considered one of the most stable and functional types of tooth replacements available. Our skilled dental team provides high-quality dental implants to restore your smile and your confidence. Drs. Packard and Packard, our qualified dentists, may suggest dental implants to:
- Enhance the beauty of your smile
- Restore your ability to properly chew, eat, and speak
- Improve the volume and shape of your face
- Prevent any natural teeth from shifting out of place
- Relieve stress on your bite
How are dental implants done?
At Creekside Dental Ellensburg, we are ready and eager to walk you through each step of the dental implant treatment process to ensure you feel comfortable and confident in your dental care. To place dental implants, we first put a small post into the empty jawbone socket of a missing tooth. Once the bone and jaws have healed, a small attachment called an abutment is placed on the metal post. Finally, your dental restoration is put on the abutment for a long-lasting solution. If you are missing teeth and think dental implants may be right for you, please contact our dental office today. We look forward to restoring your smile!
