Dental Implants - Issaquah, WA
Starting with a consultation between the patient and doctor, the journey towards a new smile begins. A consultation offers the opportunity to ask questions and to develop a plan that addresses the specific needs of the patient.
If it is discovered that the patient requires treatment, this must first be completed. Problems like gum disease, poor bone density, untreated injuries, or severely decayed teeth are all treatable and this step must be taken to ensure the patient is in the best condition prior to placement surgery.
After determining the mouth is healthy enough, the placement procedure will take place. The doctor first creates a small incision above the implant placement area. Through this opening, a titanium post will be inserted and anchored to the jawbone. The incision site will then be closed and left to heal for between three and six months.
After having enough time to integrate with the supporting bone structure, the implant post should be stable enough to place an abutment. An abutment acts as the connecting piece between the implant post and dental crown, connecting the entire appliance together.
Based on the patient and doctor's consultation, a customized crown is built to match the patient's preference for color, size, and shape. Once the crown is cemented or screwed into place, the patient will enjoy a strong, healthy, and appealing smile for a lifetime.

Very professional team. I have been doing all the procedures at Eastside Family Dentistry for 3 years, and always done perfectly. Recommend with confidence!
I have been a patient for at least 11 years and I have had wonderful care with both doctors. Thanks to them, at age 75, I still have all of my teeth including one that is an implant. The practice is very professional and all team members radiate good cheer and a caring attitude. Their equipment is state of the art and their skills are exceptional. I highly recommend the entire team and I am grateful to be their patient.
Very friendly, caring, and capable. I think so highly of them that I’ve referred 2 friends here, and they’re both very happy with them.
My teeth have been treated by the doctor of Eastside Family Dentistry for 24 years. I consider the doctor to be professional, knowledgeable, thoughtful, and artistic.
