Specialized Restorative Care
Restoring Your Smile’s Health in Poulsbo, WA
Restorative dentistry is usually something your general dentist serves, but our practice can help you rebuild your smile through select procedures. If you have gaps in your smile caused by the loss of one or more teeth, Dr. Hanson provides teeth replacement services to restore your smile. Poulsbo Periodontics & Implant Center offers restorative dental services in Poulsbo, Silverdale, Bainbridge Island, and the surrounding communities.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants are the most effective replacement for missing teeth. Consisting of a titanium post, a porcelain prosthetic, and an abutment that connects the two, implants replace the roots and the crowns of missing teeth. Our periodontist places the posts into your smile to support those prosthetics.
Over a few months, the titanium in the implant integrates into and fuses with the bone tissue, creating a permanent and exceptionally strong support system for your new teeth. If any complications arise during this healing period, Dr. Hanson will help you resolve this concerns for a more comfortable and healthier experience.
Teeth in a Day
Traditionally, the dental implant post is left alone to osseointegrate. However, not every patient has to go without teeth during this time. Some patients may be eligible to receive a prosthetic immediately, allowing them to have the benefits of a completely restored smile without having to wait. This process is known as teeth-in-a-day, and Dr. Hanson can perform this procedure to help you receive your new, permanent teeth as soon as possible.
Extraction before Placement
If tooth loss occurred as a result of extreme tooth decay, then the remaining teeth in the smile may not be healthy enough to survive. Because these teeth will need eventual removal and replacement, it is better in some cases to extract and immediately replace their roots with implant posts during an implant placement surgery.
Poulsbo Periodontics & Implant Center can conduct same-day extraction and placement procedures in these cases. We remove the unhealthy teeth from your smile and place the number of implants necessary to host an All on 4 prosthetic. One appointment will completely transform your smile into a new, healthier one.
