Losing a tooth can affect your confidence, the way you speak and your ability to eat. Dental implants look extremely natural and also decrease your chances of bone loss by provoking new bone growth. This restorative option can be a lasting solution for replacing a single tooth, several teeth, or all of them. Dental implants can also be used to anchor a bridge or dentures into place.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Most people have their third set of molars removed since they can cause a misaligned smile and other dental complications. The average age to have your wisdom teeth extracted is between 17 and 25. At Washington Smile Center, we will get you set up with an appointment and digital X-rays to first make sure you are ready for this quick procedure that keeps your smile healthy and intact.
Periodontitis can often result in significant bone and tissue loss in your jaw. Bone grafting helps get your jaw prepared for your dental implant(s) by using bone from your body, a donor or a synthetic dental material. While this process might sound intimidating, it is typically pain-free, performed while you’re under anesthesia and normally done in less than an hour.
