Dental implants are the permanent and longest-lasting way to replace your missing teeth. Just like natural teeth, dental implants are anchored by a root-like structure that supports a fixed restoration, such as a crown or bridge.
The titanium used in implant roots encourages new bone growth to form around it, securing the implant in place. In fact, this new bone growth allows the implant to withstand more weight than even the healthiest of teeth.
At Smiles of Spokane, our patients can:
Individual dental implants can support stand-alone crowns, allowing you to replace a missing tooth anywhere in the mouth.
Multiple-tooth dental bridges are supported on either end by an implant root. They are useful for restoring up to 4 or 5 teeth at one time.
If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant retained All-on-4 denture can give you an entirely new smile with as few as 4 implants.
