First Hill Dental Implants For Permanent Tooth Restoration, Practice Expands

Published May 17, 2024

With this expansion, Summit Dental Care offers patients in need of permanent tooth replacement a range of dental implant options designed to replicate the look and feel of natural teeth. Where dentures tend to last anywhere from three to seven years and dental bridges from five to 15 years, dental implants stay intact for over 25 years, requiring little maintenance beyond normal oral hygiene practices.

Summit Dental Care uses the most durable dental implants available, which are comprised of three pieces: the implant, the abutment, and the dental crown. The implant itself, which is secured into the jawbone, is made of medical-grade titanium and naturally fuses into the bone to make a permanent and strong foundation. The abutment serves as the connector between the implant and the dental crown. The practice creates dental crowns that match each patient's unique tooth size, shape, and color, placing them atop the implant and abutment once the implant has securely fused into the jawbone.

Dental implants can be effective for patients with severely cracked or damaged teeth, or for those who have teeth that are already missing and wish to fill the gaps in their bites. Both missing and damaged teeth can leave patients vulnerable to gum deterioration, bone loss in the jaw, and dangerous oral bacterial infections. If left untreated, high levels of harmful mouth bacteria can eventually cause more serious and widespread health problems, affecting the digestive system, heart, and cognitive abilities.

Patients interested in dental implants can contact Summit Dental Care via phone or their website to schedule an initial consultation, learn more about implants, and start the process.

The practice's primary dentist, Dr. NamThien Vu, received his BS in Biology and Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Washington. He also completed a one-year General Practice Residency at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas, before returning home to the Pacific Northwest to open Summit Dental Care.

"At Summit Dental Care, our mission is to provide the highest quality of comprehensive dental care in a professional, caring, and comfortable environment," said one spokesperson for the practice. "We strive to support our patient's dental needs in a positive and informative manner. We will work with you to find the right solution for your needs and your budget."
