Dental implants are a surgical addition, which is melded with the bone of the jaw or skull in order to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or denture. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dental_implant). With Tacoma WA dental services, expert dental care is provided to residents of Tacoma, Washington. We offer extensive dental services for families.

The dental practice has expanded to the third generation of the Charron Family. Northwest Dental Services and Dental Implant Center specializes in TMJ/TMD work. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, a part of human anatomy that connects the jaw to the temporal bones of the skull.

TMJ disorder is about clenching the shut and grinding teeth. TMJ pain can be due to genetics, arthritic conditions or jaw injury. The major symptom of TMJ is pain or tenderness in your jaw. (https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/tmj/symptoms-causes/syc-20350941).

TMD stands for temporomandibular disorders, which refers to disorders with the jaw or part of the joints connecting to the jaw. Dental implants are all connected to each other in some way.

Northwest Dental Services & Dental Implant Center has an on-site laboratory, run by a member of the Charron family, Kevin. An on-site lab allows the dental team to customize a solution for each patient, which is done while the patient waits. Additionally, Northwest Dental Services & Dental Implant Center has qualified assistants, dentists, and hygienists on staff that provide excellent preventative dentistry, such as average cleanings, dental fillings, and root canals.

Northwest Dental Services & Dental Implant Center provides dentures that offer both an aesthetic and functional solution that gives patients something to smile wide about, having an expert dental team on the case.

Partial dentures can help mask a group of missing teeth. Partial dentures have support with a metal framework that attaches to neighboring teeth. Interlocking Polymer Network dentures were studied by 2,000 dentists across North America, also benefiting from being durable enough to last 25 years.

Partial dentures can be replaced with a same-day order if necessary. Cosmetic dentistry is another service we provide as both an aesthetic and functional service. Cosmetic dentistry’s goal is to give patients a better smile.

Factors that require replacing teeth include missing teeth, broken teeth, off-color teeth, misshapen teeth, and teeth afflicted by tooth decay. Missing teeth can cause problems with chewing as well as speech. Overall dental health can be compromised with missing or broken teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry helps the patient’s smile as well as their self-confidence. Services offered besides dental implants in the category of cosmetic dentistry include implants, bridges, crowns, and composite fillings. Yearly cleanings can also help the patient’s fight against tooth decay.

A crown is a dentistry component that protects a damaged or fractured tooth and can hide a discolored tooth or a tooth where dental work was overdone. A bridge can be attached to a tooth in order to fill in the gap with prosthetic teeth. Contact Northwest Dental Services & Dental Implant Center today to see what we can do for your dental work.
