Dental Implants at Downriver Smiles, Spokane WA
We all hope to keep our natural teeth for life. However, tooth loss in an unfortunately common condition, usually caused by oral disease or injury. Patients in and near Spokane choose dental implants from Downriver Smiles for premier tooth replacement.
What are implants?
Complete dental implant treatment replicates the natural form and function of teeth. Dental implants are not technically replacement teeth; they are replacement roots. In the final stage of treatment, a customized restoration, consisting of one or several artificial teeth, will be attached to the implant or implants. We offer both standard size and mini implants. Your dentist will recommend the best option for a beautiful smile that fits your budget and meets your oral health needs.
The benefits of implants
Alternative treatments, such as standard dentures and bridgework, may replace missing teeth but they have inherent problems. Dentures can slip, bridges involve alteration of healthy teeth, and neither option replaces the roots of teeth.
Only dental implant treatment provides all of the following benefits:
Once an adult tooth is lost, it is not possible to grow a new one. Dental implants are the next best thing. Call Downriver Smiles and schedule a consultation today.
- Bone preservation – Tooth loss leads to bone loss, due to lack of stimulation from the root. Implants mimic the function of tooth roots, preventing this bone loss.
- Natural appearance – Because a restoration supported by an implant recreates the structure and anatomy of a complete tooth, it looks like a tooth.
- Fully functional – Implant restorations are precisely placed to achieve optimal tooth alignment, allowing proper function of the jaw. Additionally, implants restore full chewing efficiency, so you can enjoy your favorite foods again.
- Long lasting – With good oral hygiene and regular dental care, your new smile can last for the rest of your life.
