Even losing one tooth can be devastating, especially if it’s visible to other people. Age, accidents, and gum disease can all contribute to losing teeth. In fact, nearly 30% of adults have lost all or at least one quarter of their teeth, requiring significant restoration, such as dentures, bridges, or dental implants. At Mill Creek Family Dentistry, Dr. Brian Rutherford recommends dental implants whenever possible for tooth replacement.
Dental implants are crowns that are fixed to titanium supports that replace the root of the tooth. They’re a superior choice for tooth replacement for several reasons:
Implants can help prevent the bone deterioration that results from the removal of the tooth’s root, and are superior to dentures for your overall dental health. We are highly trained in both the surgical procedure to place the dental implants in Mill Creek, and the creation of the porcelain crowns that will be permanently fixed to the implant. The crowns will be as attractive as your original teeth, if not more so.
Contact the Mill Creek dental office of Dr. Brian Rutherford at 425.298.3925 if you have lost your teeth, or are already wearing dentures. He will discuss all your tooth replacement options, including beautiful and highly functional dental implants.
