Implant dentistry gives patients their smile back without gaps. Timothy J. Butson, DMD, MSD delivers implant dentistry in Seattle that is carefully matched to your other teeth for a natural look and feel. Our implant dentistry services include implant supported dentures, crowns, and bridges.
Implant dentistry offers solutions for replacing individual or multiple missing teeth. It allows patients the security and confidence of natural sounding speech, comfortable chewing ability, and, of course, an improved smile.
Implant Dentistry Solutions
- Implant supported dentures have many benefits over traditional dentures. The strong fixture of dentures to implants anchored in your jaw bone greatly reduces slippage while providing stronger chewing. They are also much more comfortable to wear than dentures that depend on soft tissue to stay in place.
- Dental bridges fill a gap by anchoring an artificial tooth to the natural teeth surrounding the gap or to an implant. This form of implant dentistry can be less invasive than implant dentures, especially if natural teeth are used as the anchor. Dental bridges can be made permanent or removable. Our experienced Seattle dentist ensures that your bridge sits comfortably for your bite and is a natural-looking match to your surrounding teeth.
- Crowns are a way of covering a discolored or broken tooth. It can also be used to bolster a weak tooth. A crown is prepared in a dental lab and is fixed to the existing tooth. This allows a patient to maintain a consistent color and shape to his or her teeth, improving the smile while also improving the strength of a damaged or weak tooth.
