Did you know, dental implants can be an option when it comes to smiling restorations? Well, it’s true! Dental implants offer a way to improve your smile and restore a lost tooth. That is why, our office here at PR Cosmetic and General Dentistry in Puyallup, Washington, is happy to provide you with basic tips on dental implants and if they are right for you.

When a tooth is lost due to injury, cavities, or gum disease, over time you can suffer from bone loss. To avoid this and other oral health conditions, having a dental implant might be ideal. A dental implant is well-matched with the human body and goes deep into the jaw acting as the root of a tooth, so your jaw stays healthy and strong and the crown over your implant stays supported.

After your dental implant is put in, there will be a healing period. During this time, you may want to chew on softer foods to help your mouth heal effectively. Once the healing time has passed, our dentist may place a dental crown over the top of it, to blend in with your surrounding teeth and restoring your smile.

Here at PR Cosmetic and General Dentistry, we take pride in your oral health care and treatment. Our talented and professional staff stands ready to assist you for any of your oral health care needs. If you feel you have any questions about dental implants or wonder if they are best for you, please call us today at 253-435-0333 to set up an appointment. Dr. Paul Roe, Dr. Kevin Kim, and Dr. Hyun Lee look forward to helping you create the smile of your dreams!
