Why we offer dental implants in Puyallup

At South Hill Dental in Puyallup, we are proud to offer the latest advances in dental procedures to ensure the highest quality treatment for our patients. Dental implants are the leading option for replacing missing teeth, giving patients unrivalled function and aesthetic. Here are five reasons why we offer dental implants in Puyallup:

1. Dental implants are an effective solution for replacing missing teeth

Dental implants consist of a biocompatible (usually titanium) root post placed into the jawbone, through a simple surgical procedure. During the healing process the bones fuses around the post, in a process called osseointegration. A prosthetic crown is then placed onto the post to complete the restoration. Where there are several missing teeth, your dentist may suggest a bridge or implant-supported dentures.

Dental implants in Puyallup are an ideal solution for replacing missing teeth. You will be able to eat, drink, speak and socialise as normal once the treatment is complete.

2. Dental implant surgery is backed by science

At South Hill Dental in Puyallup we use the latest advances in dental implant technology to plan and place implants. This includes using an intraoral scanner to create an accurate 3D image of your teeth, jaws and gums to plan treatment. Using the latest software your dentist can plan the ideal placement of your dental implant with absolute precision and use of computer guided surgery to place your dental implants. If there is any need for bone grafting to secure the dental implant in the jaw, this will be picked up in the planning and planned for accordingly. Using science to plan implants reduces the risk of failure of the implant.

3. Dental implants are a good solution for denture wearers

Patients at South Hill Dental who find dentures uncomfortable or difficult to manage often find dental implants a good solution. There are two options for denture wearers considering dental implants - the placing of a number of single implants and/or bridges as described above or implant supported dentures. In the latter option, a number of implants are placed in the mouth - using 3D imaging and computer guided surgery to choose the optimum placement for bone health and likelihood for success. Dentures are then placed onto the implant posts. This eliminates issues with moving or loose dentures, problems with speech and eating. Patients often feel more confident with implant supported dentures.

4. Dental implants can be beneficial to long-term health

Replacing your missing teeth is not just a cosmetic choice. Gaps between your teeth can put pressure on your remaining teeth and can affect your bite. You can also be limited in what you can eat and drink, which can have a negative impact on your diet and nutrition. Dental implants can make a positive difference to your physical and emotional well being.

5. We are skilled and trained to deliver this treatment to a high standard

We offer dental implants in Puyallup because we are proud to have a team of dental professionals with the training and experience to complete procedures to a high standard. Dr Kunal Walia is a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and has expertise in placing implants in complex reconstructions.

PATIENT REVIEWS

Friendliest and cleanest dentist office

This is by far the friendliest and cleanest dentist office I have ever been to in my fifty plus years. The staff is so welcoming and you can tell there is a great deal of respect amongst them as they work as a team. PLUS they are gentle and efficient at their duties. The dentist is awesome as well. Let's face it, going to the dentist isn't on anyone's favorite thing to do, but with the treatment and atmosphere at South Hill Dental, it was even kinda a pleasure! Five stars for them!

South Hill Dental is great!

South Hill Dental is great! I had a tooth that felt like it was ready to explode and they were able to get me in to perform what ended up being two root canals. Got in the same day i called. Jill was great and so was everyone else. Can't remember everyone's name because when you're getting work done, it's hard to remember things like names. The dentist really knew what he was doing and I'm feeling better already. I highly recommend them!
