Dental Implants Bellevue WA, Seattle & Mercer Island
Dental Implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. A person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.
Wisdom Teeth Bellevue WA, Seattle & Mercer Island
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. When they align properly, the gum tissue is healthy, and the teeth are easy to clean, wisdom teeth may not need to be removed. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. These poorly positioned impacted teeth can cause many problems including pain, swelling, stiffness, and infection. Early removal is recommended to avoid such problems and to decrease the potential surgical risk involved with the procedure.
