Washington Dental Implant Placement
Implant Site Development Services
If you have lost a tooth or need a tooth extracted, we understand that you want to be able to restore your smile as soon as possible. Our team at Four Rivers Periodontics and Implant Specialists wants to help you receive the highest quality dental implant solutions possible by performing state-of-the-art implant site development and placement treatments to patients throughout Washington and surrounding areas.
Implant site development prepares your mouth to receive a dental implant and is especially useful if you have experienced bone loss or decay. These treatments can include ridge augmentation, guided bone regeneration, or other bone and gum grafting procedures to create a solid foundation for your new tooth. Without laying this stable base layer, it is more likely that you will experience complications with your implant. To make sure you are a good candidate for these procedures, we will perform a detailed analysis of your teeth and gums and learn about your unique dental history. Our dentist will then develop a customized treatment to meet your specific needs.

Common Implant Complications
Dental implants are becoming a more popular option for tooth replacement thanks to advancements in equipment and technologies. While implants are only increasing in their success rates, there are potential complications that can happen if the implant is not placed properly, if the site is not prepared correctly, or if healthy oral habits aren’t maintained.
Some common implant complications include:
- Implant loosening
- Excess space
- Nerve damage
- Sinus issues
How Do I Care For Dental Implants?
It is essential that you take the following steps in order to take proper care of your dental implants:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day, using a toothbrush that has soft bristles. An electric toothbrush does the best job keeping your teeth and implants clean!
- Use toothpaste that is recommended by your dentist
- Utilize an interdental brush as directed by your periodontist (or dentist)
- Floss daily
- Avoid eating hard foods that could potentially damage your implants
- Contact us if you believe you are grinding your teeth
