Have A Gap In Your Smile?

“I Felt Hopeless About My Teeth, A Full Mouth Reconstruction Restored My Smile!”

Shane’s Story

Shane’s Story 

Reclaim a Full Set of Healthy Teeth

If your smile has deteriorated significantly, you might not just be missing teeth—you might be missing out on life. No one should have to feel embarrassed to smile or speak. To give up their favorite foods because of unhealthy teeth. To suffer the jawbone recession that follows tooth loss.

Dental implants look, feel, and perform just like real teeth—and they never decay or lose their original color. The partial dentures some practices offer can’t match their aesthetics or durability. If you’re looking for permanent smile restoration with dental implants in Issaquah, WA, you’ve found the expert. Dr. Scott Clayhold has placed 10,000 of them.

While many general dentists offer dental implants, you should always rely on a specialist for this complex treatment. A highly trained and renowned oral surgeon, Dr. Scott Clayhold has specialized surgical training and is an expert at placing dental implants. He pursued a further six years of advanced training following his completion of medical and dental school.

Now credentialed with specialized training in dentistry, surgery, medicine, and anesthesia services, he’s qualified to handle complicated cases that most general dentists decline. Empowered by his expertise and sophisticated technology, he can deliver precise, pain-free implant placement with lasting and life-changing results.

Three Steps to a Restored Smile

Step 1: Personalized Consultation

Most patients are already candidates for dental implants in Issaquah, WA. If you’re not, Dr. Clayhold can make you one after a few related treatments. He’ll determine all of these during your free initial consultation. During your visit, Dr. Clayhold will take the time to learn and understand your smile goals. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, please feel comfortable knowing that with his medical training, he can truly customize your treatment plan for the greatest success. He’ll also do a full examination and capture high-definition 3D x-ray images of your mouth using our in-house cone beam CT scanner. This low-radiation technology enables Dr. Clayhold to preplan your implant placement with the utmost accuracy. With the information he collects from the scanner, he can make a customized surgical guide. This helps him produce those exceptional results eliminating room for error.

Step 2: Expert Placement

Dr. Clayhold will place your implants during your next appointment. As an oral surgeon and one that completed an additional two-year anesthesia internship, Dr. Clayhold can make your procedure anxiety- and pain-free with the full range of anesthesia options. With sedation services including general anesthesia, IV sedation, and oral sedation, Dr. Clayhold can complete your implant placement while you’re essentially asleep—peacefully unaware of the procedure. Once you’re alert again, you’ll have no memory of your treatment. When you’re ready, Dr. Clayhold will perform any preliminary procedures to prepare your mouth for your implant placement. These may include tooth extractions to make room for your implants and bone grafting to reverse jawbone decay. Dr. Clayhold then begins the placement process by surgically inserting durable titanium implant posts into your jawbone. These top-quality implants from recognized manufacturers including BioHorizons® and Astra Tech will act as your tooth roots. A customized surgical guide will help him place the implants at the optimal location and angle. As part of the procedure, he’ll apply growth factors derived from your own blood to accelerate post-placement healing. Before you return home, we’ll provide a few items that will help during your healing process. You’ll also be able to receive a temporary crown or bridge offering immediately restored function and aesthetics.

Step 3: Exceptional Outcomes

Your implant site will gradually heal in the months after placement, aided by growth factors. During this time your titanium dental implants will fuse permanently with the underlying jawbone in a process called osseointegration. After you’ve healed completely, you’ll be able to receive your customized dental crowns or bridges. With implants that function like natural teeth and restorations that look like them, you’ll be able to truly enjoy a restored life!
