One of the most rewarding dental procedures your Federal Way dentist, Dr. Josephine Lee, does is restoring dental implants.
Dental Implants have become so streamline over the past 20+ years! Dr. Lee loves that dental implants restore form and function. She also loves that they maintain the bone!
For dental implants, we work with a team of oral surgeons. The oral surgeons at PNWOMS (Pacific Northwest Oral and Maxiofacial Surgery) perform the placement of the implant into the jawbone and then follow the healing. Once the healing is complete (about four months later), they are able to scan the implant. Gone are the days of gooey impressions!!! From there, Dr. Lee and her awesome dental lab take over to design the custom abutment (connector) and the actual implant crown.
We, at Avalon Family Dentistry, are blessed to have such a dedicated team of oral surgeons to work with. Your dentist in Federal Way, Dr. Lee, wanted to share a little about them so you could get to know them even before your first appointment!
If you have missing teeth and have been thinking that it is time to do something, now is a great time! Many dental insurance plans work on a calendar year, so placing an implant now and letting it heal means restoring it in the new year. This will maximize your dental benefits and minimize your out of pocket expense.
No dental insurance??? Do not worry! Both Avalon Family Dentistry and PNWOMS have companies that design easy, workable payment plans.
