Dental Implants: Restoring Your Natural Smile
At Woodland Family Dental, we want to help each of our patients love their smiles. Tooth loss can be demoralizing and present practical difficulties. For patients coping with tooth loss, Dr. David Welton offers treatment to help restore your natural-looking, comfortable smile with dental implants.
Dental implants are the preferred tooth replacement option because they are permanent, stimulate bone growth, and help maintain a more youthful appearance. Prostheses supported by implants do not slip or slide, causing discomfort and self-consciousness. Dr. David has additional training in implantology, and particularly enjoys placing dental implants for our Post Falls patients!
Are Dental Implants Right For You?
Are you missing one or all of your teeth? Regular flossing, brushing, and preventive checkups allow some people to maintain their natural smiles for a lifetime. However, sometimes our teeth just can’t keep up with our busy lifestyles! If you’ve lost a tooth (or teeth) due to injury or decay, dental implants could be the right solution to help repair your oral health and rejuvenate your smile.
Dental implants are well suited to patients who are in good general health, who have enough bone density in the jaw to support them, and who do not have periodontal disease. If you are wondering if you would be a good candidate, call our Post Falls office to schedule a consultation with Dr. David Welton.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Modern tooth restoration has never been better! A dental implant is a titanium screw that acts as an artificial “tooth root”, providing a secure support to permanently anchor your new tooth, bridge or denture.
Dental implants are surgically embedded into the jaw bone, fusing to it over time and stimulating new bone growth. This keeps your jaw healthier, and helps maintains the shape of your face. During the healing phase, patients wear a temporary prosthesis. Once your mouth is ready, Dr. David will use an abutment to connect your permanent prosthesis to the implant.
