Rebuilding the Smile in Bellingham, WA
When tooth loss occurs, the most important thing to do is replace the missing portions of a smile. Traditionally, this means loose dentures or bridges being added to the smile, but our dentist can provide a better option: dental implants. These titanium posts are more secure, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing than traditional restorations.
Robert Chester, DDS, offers dental implants in Bellingham, Ferndale, and Blaine. We help all patients in Whatcom and Skagit Counties rebuild their health by providing them with new, permanent teeth.
Dental Implant Placement
The longevity and effectiveness of a dental implant are due to its nature as an artificial tooth root. Any tooth an implant supports is going to have a more reliable foundation it would have with traditional restorations that utilize neighboring teeth. In order for this titanium anchor to work as intended, it must be given the chance to integrate into the jawbone.
Dr. Chester performs the dental implant placement surgery right here in our Bellingham dental practice. He can help his patients undergo the placement of implants into the jaw in a safe, relaxing manner. Whether by providing this treatment directly or coordinating your case with a trusted oral surgeon, Dr. Chester makes sure you receive your implants with your utmost comfort in mind.
Dental Implant Restoration
Once you have a new root, Dr. Chester moves on to place your new tooth. The restoration of a dental implant is the new tooth, the portion that helps you chew food and have a great-looking smile. These prosthetics can be crowns, bridges, or full dentures designed to be supported by implants.
Once your implant has fully fused to the jaw, Dr. Chester adds these restorations to your smile. He makes sure your new teeth fit the structure of your mouth and successfully latch onto the implants. Once your new teeth are in place, you can fully enjoy the benefits of having a full, healthy smile.
The Chester Difference
Dental implants are one of the best ways to replace teeth in dentistry. After all, once integration is complete, the new tooth looks and feels as natural as its original counterpart did. However, this treatment plan is not for everyone.
While some may attempt to upsell you on implants without considering your best interests, Dr. Chester has a frank and honest discussion with everyone who visits him to have their teeth replaced. He makes sure you understand how implants can benefit you and whether they are the best solution to your particular needs. This personalized care behind implant dentistry is not found everywhere, but it is found at our practice.
