Dental Implants at Our Tumwater, WA Practice for the Best in Teeth Replacement

Dental Implants in Tumwater, WA - Affordable Family DentalA missing tooth or teeth needs to be replaced, not just for aesthetic reasons but also to protect the integrity of your mouth. An absent tooth can allow other teeth to shift from their proper positions. Furthermore, missing teeth can result in loss of the underlying bone and serious complications.

You have several options for teeth replacement, but dental implants are among the best. A dental implant is a simple post that is inserted surgically into the bone of your jaw. After a few months, the implant integrates fully with the bone for secure positioning. You can then have your final restoration placed, such as crowns or implant-retained dentures.

Dental implants appear completely natural and function just like organic teeth. To learn more about implants and other tooth replacement choices, please give Affordable Family Dental a call at (360) 943-5420.
