Dental Implants in Bellevue
If you have lost one or more teeth due to an injury, periodontal disease or any other reason, we would like to introduce you to one of the best and newest dental procedures: Bellevue Dental Implants. Implant dentistry is an effective procedure when your natural teeth cannot be restored. An implant looks and feels just like your natural teeth and most people will never be able to tell that you lost your teeth to begin with.
How Bellevue Dental Implants Work
A dental implant consists of three components.
- Fixture: This is the new tooth root system. The fixture resembles a screw or cylinder and is placed directly into your jaw. There it will be left undisturbed for a period of 3-6 months to give it time to fuse to the bone. The fixture will act as an anchor for the new artificial tooth.
- Abutment: After fusion occurs, a metal post called an abutment will be placed on the fixture. The abutment will act as an extension and is the foundation on which your new tooth will be placed. At this time, an impression will be taken so that a dental crown can be fabricated.
- Dental Crown: This is a replacement tooth and will be attached to the abutment. It won’t take long before your confidence and your ability to smile, chew food and speak are completely restored.
