Dental implants are known as “the gold standard” in restorative dentistry, and for many good reasons. They are without a doubt the closest dental restoration to your natural teeth, providing most of the same benefits as a natural tooth. Dr. Cory Gaunt is an accomplished dental implant specialist, and he offers beautiful, functional dental implants at Downriver Smiles in Spokane.
Dental implants consist of a titanium root, similar to a hollow screw, that is surgically implanted into your jawbone. On the root, Dr. Gaunt places an abutment that allows different uses; a dental crown for single tooth replacements or attachments to implant-supported dentures or other dental prosthetics. In each option, your new teeth are anchored into your jawbone for secure, stable and totally functional new teeth, and they look completely natural.
A major benefit of dental implants is how they mimic your natural tooth to maintain oral health. The titanium screw becomes embedded into your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. The pressure of this screw into the bone as you chew acts to stimulate the jawbone, causing continued bone growth and stability – just as your natural teeth perform this same service. This means you maintain stronger jaw and facial bone structure to maintain a healthy appearance.
Excellence in Implant Dentistry
The key to beautiful and lasting dental implants lies with the implant dentist. For true excellence in implant dentistry, your dental implants must be placed precisely in the correct location for superior osseointegration and overall stability. At Downriver Smiles in Spokane, Dr. Gaunt uses our 3D cone beam scanner for meticulously placing dental implants. This helps ensure proper placement for the longest possible life and use from your implants.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, for complete mouth restorations or to anchor other dental prosthetics. You can rest assured that your dental restoration using implants will be performed correctly with superior precision and quality. Plus, our comfortable operatories and comfort amenities will help you relax throughout your dental restoration procedure.
