What is a Dental Implant?

Usually a dental implant is a piece of titanium screw that will replace the root portion of your missing tooth. It fuses with your tooth bone, and it becomes a proper anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants is good solutions for replacing single or multiple missing teeth.

Why Replace Missing Tooth?

If you have a missing tooth, the biting forces usually change on your adjacent teeth and eventually they'll shift to the empty space, and any opposing teeth may extrude out of the socket, so they could be lost.

Because your tooth is missing, it gets more difficult to chew, and it may cause any damage to your jaw joint. In addition, plaque and tartar will be accumulated and it may cause any periodontal disease, such as irritated and inflamed gum, also known as gingivitis.

A dental implant is stable and comfortable, and it will not require any additional adjustment after the placement. And it lasts for a number of years.



Benefits of Implants

A dental implant acts just like your natural teeth, and it fits firmly so that you will not feel uncomfortable at all when you chew and speak. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants don't require to shape the adjacent teeth, so their strength and intergrety is still maintained.

BEFORE THE PROCEDURE

Our dentists will thoroughly examine your teeth and take any necessary x-rays of the area to prepare for the dental implant.

INSTALLING THE IMPLANT

The implant is placed into the bone, and we cover the implant with a protective healing cap so that it can heal securely.

ATTACHING THE NEW CROWN

Once the implant is healed and placed firmly, we attach the abutment to the implant. It can be adjusted and shaped to allow the replacement tooth.

END RESULT

After the abutment is attached, we affix the crown to the abutment. The crown is crafted in our lab and it matches your other natural teeth. Your dental implant is now complete, and your new tooth will function just like your natural tooth.





Course of Treatment | Multiple Teeth

Seattle Dental Implants

When you have three or more teeth that are missing, the best possible option is to install a fixed bridge. It will contain all teeth in one piece and anchored on dental implants.



BEFORE THE PROCEDURE

Three teeth at back end of the mouth are missing. Our dentists will explain the treatment plan.


INSTALLING THE IMPLANT

Implants used to support a bridge are placed and allowed to surrounding bone in the same manner as a single tooth implant. After the appropriate healing time, healing abutments are placed on each implant to allow contouring of the tissue.


ATTACHING THE BRIDGE

When the implant is securely anchored in the bone, the healing abutments are removed and final abutments are attached to the implants. These function as the core of the replacement teeth that are attached directly to the implants.


END RESULT

The new bridge will handle all the pressure that your strong, natural back teeth did. You will have a stable and secure solution that allows you to eat what you want.

Dr. Nguyen met with me to go over the images and the status of my teeth and his treatment plan. He was very kind and put me at ease with his demeanor and delivery. I feel in very good hands. Nice work!

My 30 year old filling was replaced with a CEREC crown. Crown Hill Dental did a great job. The office is clean and pleasant. The staff are knowledgeable and ready to address any questions and concerns.

Steven R. on Google

My visit was very pleasant and professional. Considering how afraid I am, I continue to come here because of the gentle treatment I receive with needle free sedation. I was informed of each step taken which I also enjoy. This is the best dental office in Seattle and I tell others this often. Thank you!

Alan P. on Google

They also have killer technology for imaging, modeling and fabricating beautiful crowns on-site, so you can get fit THAT DAY if needed. I've been a few times now and the staff always knows my name and gets me going right on time, the support DA's are super nice and my new smile is much better feeling and looking than it was before.

Jason E. on Yelp

I have been a patient for more than 20 years. Always professional, always on time. They never scold me for not flossing enough (ahem), instead they gently offer suggestions on how I can better care for my mouth.

Robin D. on Yelp

I'm very happy with the service the hygienists provide and plan to keep coming back. 5 extra stars to the Polish hygienist; she's awesome and super friendly and takes the stress away from having someone poking around in your mouth.

Jamie K. on Yelp

It was actually the most comfortable dental experience I've ever had. The staff takes time to talk to the patients and let's you know what's going on while they do the work. I'd recommend this place to everyone! Great experience.

Amanda C. on Yelp
