Dentistry of Monroe is committed to offering a full range of dentistry services. Whether you’ve had repairs or need a complete replacement, we recommend continual check-ups to assess your gums and bone density to assess the surrounding areas associated with your implant.
When you have missing teeth, an alternative solution to dentures is dental implants. Unlike dentures that are removable, dental implants provide permanent new teeth to restore your mouth’s function and appearance. Dental implants tend to offer a successful and lasting solution to the loss of some or all of your teeth. At Dentistry of Monroe, placing implants is one of the restorative dental treatments we offer to our Monroe, WA patients.
When we perform a dental implant treatment, we screw or tap an implant into the gum where you have a missing tooth. This provides a new root that we finish with a crown that looks like a natural tooth. The implant gradually fuses to the jaw bone to give you a strong new tooth that works just as well as a healthy, natural one. Once you have an implant, you don’t have to remove it like with a denture, and you’ll care for it like you would a normal tooth.
We are able to provide different dental implant solutions depending on the scenario. If you are missing a whole row or all of your teeth, we could put implants throughout every missing spot. On the other hand, you might only be missing a few teeth. In this case, we can simply replace the missing ones. We also have the option to combine implants with bridges and dentures to fill in every gap. We will provide an assessment and discuss your options with you. Various factors could affect the decision. These include price, function and convenience.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Some people find it unnecessary to put dental implants throughout the entire mouth when other options such as dentures are available. But the results of implants can be very rewarding in that they provide a permanent new set of teeth that looks and functions like the real thing. Implants improve oral health by covering the vulnerable gum that was exposed to food particles that can transform into gum disease and tooth decay. In addition, missing teeth often lead to confidence concerns, so restoring the look of a healthy and beautiful smile can help your self-esteem.

Here at Dentistry of Monroe, we are proud to offer bridges to our patients.
Many patients lose teeth as they age. This can actually change the way your mouth looks and functions. It can also change the look of your face.
For this reason, we offer bridges to help fill in the gaps. Bridges with artificial teeth can get your mouth back to its correct shape and functioning as it should.
It is always important to have a thorough examination with x-rays. After that, we will be able to discuss your options so we can make the right choice for your mouth.
If you have any questions about bridges or think you might need one, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (360) 365-5165.
Inlays and Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are considered a conservative method of treating damaged teeth. They are used instead of placing a crown. Some dentists even use inlays and onlays to treat tooth decay. Instead of filling in the tooth, your dentist may use dental inlays and onlays.
Dental inlays and onlays are made in a dental lab and then fitted to your tooth. They are then bonded to your tooth.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
At Dentistry of Monroe, we offer full mouth restoration to repair and enhance many aspects of your smile at once. Full mouth restoration is dental treatment that can treat and restore a smile if it has been severely decayed, damaged, or injured. It is a procedure that often restores many or all of the teeth in the mouth.
