At Whidbey Dental Associates, our Oak Harbor dentists offer various dental implant solutions.
Single Tooth Replacement
Dental implants are a permanent solution for anyone with missing, damaged, or decayed teeth. They operate with your teeth by blending with your natural smile. With dental implants, you can care for them the same way that you would care for your natural teeth — by brushing and flossing regularly.
We can use a single dental implant to restore a gap in your smile — no matter where it’s located. If a missing tooth is affecting your physical and emotional health, schedule your consultation with Dr. Wirth today.
Multiple Tooth Replacement
Much like single-tooth restorations, we can use dental implants to fill the gaps left behind by multiple missing teeth. Again, this process only requires two office visits.
One way we can use implants is if you’re missing multiple teeth that are non-adjacent to one another, Dr. Wirth will use a single dental implant for each gap.
Likewise, if the gaps are adjacent, your implant dentist might recommend a partial implant-supported bridge. Dr. Wirth would prepare the teeth that we’ll use as anchors to secure a single attractive prosthetic. Then your implants will be placed and the bridge will be positioned accordingly.
Full Arch Replacement
A full arch restoration is an ideal option for those who are missing an entire arch of teeth or currently wear dentures and want a more reliable option. This restoration uses multiple implants to secure a single prosthetic. This prosthetic arch of teeth will look, feel, and function naturally. Furthermore, your restoration won’t slide around or move out of place.
One significant benefit of a full-arch restoration is that you’ll leave our office with a beautiful, functional temporary restoration. Then, Dr. Wirth will secure your permanent arch once your body has healed.
Dental Implant Candidacy
During your initial visit, you’ll undergo a thorough full mouth examination. Dr. Wirth will begin evaluating your oral health with Cone Beam X-ray technology to determine eligibility. From there, Dr. Wirth will review your medical and dental history and ask about your smile goals. This information will determine whether a dental implant is right for you.
