If you are living with an incomplete smile, you may feel self-conscious about your appearance as well as experience problems eating and speaking. One of the most popular ways of replacing missing teeth is through the use of dental implants. Our dentist, Dr. Brian Han, provides dental implants in Fircrest, Washington, and you can learn more about them when you call Fircrest Family Dental at 253-341-4814 to make your appointment.
What are the advantages to dental implants? Dental implants are permanent replacements and do not need to be removed to be cleaned. They can be brushed and flossed just like your other teeth, and they look completely natural. Dental implants have another advantage over other restorations in that they can improve your oral health. Because the implants are titanium posts placed directly into the jaw, they stimulate the jawbone, making it stronger. The crown or restoration that is added to the post will blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile. Some surgery is required for a dental crown to be replaced, and you need to have enough healthy jawbone to support the crown, and your gums also need to be in good shape.
