A dental implant can drastically improve your appearance and quality of life. At Family First Dental, we have a selection of implants available to suit everyone’s needs. Do you have a missing or damaged tooth that could benefit from a dental implant? Don’t wait any longer, come see Family First Dental in Kennewick, WA today!
Single Tooth Implants
These individual implants can be used for one or more missing teeth. A small surgical procedure will place the implant inside the jaw bone, where it will act as a root for your new tooth. Once the implant fuses to the bone, your new tooth (crown) will be placed attached to the implant, creating a natural-looking tooth with a strong foundation.
Unlike regular, removable dentures, an implant-supported denture secures the dentures to the jawbone creating a natural-looking, full smile that also has improved stability. This treatment can be used for those with full or partial dentures that want that added feeling of comfort and security with their dentures. The benefits of implant-supported dentures are:
- Easy to clean
- Resemble natural teeth, improving overall appearance and improving the person’s self-confidence
- Improves quality of life – eating and talking become easier
- No gum irritation as the dentures are fixed in place
- Prevent long-term tooth damage and can work to make the jawbone stronger
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are a great option for those who want to hold their dentures in place, but may be lacking the jawbone strength to support regular dental implants. While mini dental implants allow for some movement of the denture, you can still talk, eat and drink without any worry of your dentures falling out or irritating your gums. If you wish to get long-term support for your dentures, book an appointment with us now and we can choose the right implant for you!
