Restore Your Bite with Dental Implants

Losing a tooth is never an enjoyable experience and Drs. Ryan and Janie Busk know that compassionate care is a vital part of the healing process. Selecting a stable, permanent replacement can seem daunting, but with complete dental implant restoration, your smile can be restored.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is made to restore a missing tooth. First, Dr. Busk will refer you to a trusted oral surgeon who can place the implant. This small, metallic rod will be placed directly into the now-empty socket of the absent tooth. Over time, the jawbone and gum tissue in the area will fuse with the implant, forming an artificial root. When your mouth is fully healed, you’ll return to complete the process.

The final step of dental implant placement is known as implant restoration. To conclude your smile transformation, Dr. Busk will attach a realistic-looking dental crown or a sturdy fixed bridge, depending on your individual needs. In addition to restoring the function of your smile, you can also enjoy the restoration of your smile’s appearance--your implants will look and feel just like your natural teeth.


Benefits of Dental Implants

Patients who have fully restored implants are able to enjoy the renewed ability to eat their favorite foods and to smile without embarrassment.

In addition, dental implants do not shift or slip, and are the only permanent tooth replacement option since they are inserted into the jaw. You can prevent the appearance of premature aging by restoring and retaining the natural shape of your face. Implants also prevent future tooth and bone loss.


Why replace missing teeth?

When a tooth is lost, it’s important to have it replaced as soon as possible. Not only will your self-confidence be affected, but your oral health can also take a turn for the worse. The other teeth along the same gums will begin to shift inward to close the gap left behind by the missing tooth. This will alter your dental occlusion or the way your top and bottom rows of teeth fit together.


Small Dental Issues Can Become Big Problems

Sudden changes in a bite can lead to many other problems, like crowding, gaps between teeth, and even teeth grinding. Working with our Wenatchee team can prevent you from the time and expense of future reconstructive dental work.
