Teeth Replacements for Monroe, Washington

Dr. Irene Chasen Provides Implant Dentistry

At Chasen Smiles, we offer implant dentistry for patients seeking to fill in their smile gaps. Dr. Irene Chasen can restore your dental implant with a single-tooth porcelain crown or attached a dental prosthesis, a bridge or partial denture. Dental implants have remained at the forefront of tooth-replacement technology. An implant uses a biocompatible fixture to take the place of a natural tooth root. Dental implants offer unrivaled support, function, and longevity. Monroe implant dentist Dr. Chasen can restore your dental implant with natural-looking crowns and bridges at our Monroe dental office.

Dental implants have been used in dental practices for more than sixty years. In fact, the first American dentist to place a dental implant did so in 1952. But dental implants have an even longer history. Ancient implants have been found in Mayan jawbones, Egyptian mummies, Middle Eastern skeletons, and Roman soldiers. The great thing about modern dental implants is that the fixtures used today are biocompatible. That means the bone treats the implant like a tooth root, and will fuse around it. Chasen Smiles is your implant dental practice!

So why get a dental implant? When teeth fall out, the roots typically come with them. Dental implants are the only restorative solution that replaces these roots, closely mimicking nature’s design. The implant is placed in the jaw bone, and over time, the bone tissue grows around the implant. This helps promote healthy bone mass and provides a stable foundation for a new tooth. At our implant dental office in Monroe, WA, we will be happy to assess your jaw and gum to determine if dental implants are the right solution for improving your smile.

During your comprehensive exam at Chasen Smiles, our Monroe implant dentist takes digital X-rays of your mouth, examines your teeth, checks your jaw, and assess your gum health. A thorough, complete study of your mouth is an integral part of the implant dentistry process. We also review your medical history as part of your overall assessment. Lifestyles choices, such as smoking, and other health concerns, including heart problems, may affect your implant eligibility.

Once your implants are placed, you’ll come in for your restoration appointment at our Monroe implant dentistry. Dr. Chasen can affix a custom crown or a porcelain bridge. Dentures, full or partial, can be either retrofitted (if you already have a set) are created to be implant-retained. Implant-retained dentures can be used with traditional implants, or for patients with not as much bone structure, with mini implants. With implant-retained dental prostheses, you won’t have to worry about your dentures, slipping, clicking, or affecting your speech and eating habits.

Your dental implants will last a very long time! You care for them in the same way you do your regular teeth, with brushing, flossing, and rinsing with fluoridated products. And getting regular checkups at our Monroe implant dental practice will ensure the longevity of your implants, too.
