We offer a variety of procedures and treatments for facial rejuvenation in Seattle WA. Options include both surgical and non-surgical procedures. Dr William Portuese
does this work?
Once the Surgeon/Prosthodontic team ascertains through radiographs
and examination that you have sufficient bone for implants, the Prosthodontist
fabricates a full arch set of teeth to be placed the same day as the surgeon places
the implants. The Surgeon, in two or three hours,
places the implants and if he needs to, removes the remaining ailing teeth.
a mild sedative is used or you can be put to sleep, if you like. You are driven
to the Prosthodontist's office, where in about two hours (mostly while you snooze),
the doctor fits teeth to your implants. And, you walk out with teeth fixed to
your implants ready to have dinner! No bulky dentures and baby food for you.
First, it's a more permanent solution. Implants do not decay. Dental
implants maintain bone height, which provides needed facial support as we age.
Why choose "Same
Although the initial cost is higher, there is no problem with nutrition,
speaking and over-all confidence because teeth are fixed in your mouth. The hassle
with implants has always been wearing a removable device while the implants heal
for four to six months. Now you have teeth the same day! Incidentally, sometimes
for individual single tooth situations, you can have teeth the same day as well.
