You’ll Start With a Free Consultation
Your journey to a restored smile with dental implants begins with a free consultation. Once you leave this meeting you should have a good understanding of your treatment options and have the information you need to decide if dental implants are the right choice for you.
Dr. Michele Taylor will examine the current state of your oral health, speak with you about your goals for tooth restoration, and explain how we customize the dental implant procedure to fit your smile needs. This consultation is also your opportunity to ask any questions you may have about tooth replacement and the dental implant process.
We’ll Create Your Personalized Treatment Plan
There are no cookie-cutter treatment plans at Denti Belli Dentistry. We always take a customized approach to tooth replacement with dental implants because we know each patient we see at our Renton, WA practice is different.
We use the information gathered in your initial consultation to create your treatment plan. This personalized plan may include all or some of the following steps:
Preparing With Supplemental Procedures
To prepare the jawbone and gums for dental implant placement, some patients may benefit from a supplemental procedure such as bone grafting or gum disease treatment. These preliminary procedures are performed at our practice and will ultimately improve the outcome of your dental implants.
Placing Your Implant
Once any necessary supplemental procedures are completed, you’ll have your dental implants placed. You may have a temporary restoration attached to your implant at this time so you don’t need to live with a gap in your smile while the area heals.
The Healing Period
Proper healing is vitally important to the success of your dental implants. While the area recovers the process of osseointegration occurs in which the implant and surrounding bone fuse together, creating a strong foundation for the replacement tooth or set of teeth.
Attaching Your Restoration
Once Dr. Taylor determines that osseointegration has been a success, you’ll return to our office to have your permanent restoration attached and you’ll leave with a fully restored smile.
Follow Proper Aftercare and Maintenance
Once you receive your permanent restoration, you’ll be able to care for your dental implants just like you would your natural teeth. Part of the appeal of implants is that they require only basic brushing and flossing to maintain. In comparison to dentures that require a lot more maintenance, dental implants are remarkably easy to care for. Your bi-annual checkup and cleaning are also important for keeping your dental implants and entire mouth healthy.
