Dental Implants in Tacoma, WA
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth.
When you lose a permanent tooth, there are a few options to replace it, but only one of those offers a complete restoration: dental implants.
A dental implant replaces your entire tooth from root to crown. This restores the function of your tooth like preserving your bone structure, which is something no other restoration offers.
The best part: Dental implants by our Tacoma dentist are made to look and feel exactly like a natural tooth. No one will notice you have a dental implant!
It’s clear to see why dental implants are the #1 recommended tooth replacement option by dentists and patients!
Here’s a preview of Dr. Giesy’s dental implants procedure in Tacoma, WA:
- Step 1: Place the post
A small titanium post is placed into your jawbone. It will take on average three to six months for the post to fuse with your jaw. Once complete, this post will mimic a tooth root.
- Step 2: Place the abutment
Next, Dr. Giesy will place a metal cap, called an abutment, on your post. This will serve as the foundation for your crown.
- Step 3: Place the crown
The final touch will be placing your custom-designed crown. Your complete dental implant will seamlessly blend in with your surrounding teeth.
