If you have lost a tooth, several teeth, or even if a complete arch of teeth is missing, a dental implant may provide you with a permanent, sturdy solution. After any rot is removed, a titanium screw is inserted into the bone at the site of the missing tooth to ensure stability. After the implant post is in place, Dr. Lyudmila Shur will place an abutment—a small attachment that sits on the top of the screw. Finally, the dental implant is attached. Depending on your individual needs, our knowledgeable dentist may recommend a dental bridge, a partial denture, or a complete denture to attach to the abutment and complete your restoration. During this process, our dentist works carefully to ensure as much comfort as possible.
Dental implants are designed to be permanent, and to restore your smile to its optimum comfort, look, and performance. Because dental implants fuse with the jawbone, they will not move, shift, or slip, and with proper care, implants can last a lifetime. Our team can teach you how to keep your implants strong for years to come. If you have any questions about the benefits of dental implants in Lynnwood, Washington, please call our visit Dr. Shur Dental today. Our welcoming team looks forward to meeting with you soon.
