Dr. Anderton.says “We have been considering offering Dental Implant procedures since our acquisition of the Wenatchee Dental practice in 2016. Adding this service shows that we are addressing our patients desire for additional options to their dental care/. Our patient’s desires for expanded, affordable dental care was the key motivator for this addition to our practice… It’s always fun and exciting to add more treatment options to better serve our patients,” . Dr. Anderton has 13 years prior experience having spent 11 years in an East Wenatchee practice.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are attached in the jawbone on the area of the missing tooth/teeth. This provides patients a solid foundation for their removable or permanent teeth. It enables patients to have a natural looking and functioning teeth replacement that gives them the perfect smile and the ability to eat almost anything.
Dental implants are embedded to your jawbone during a brief surgical procedure. Your dentist at Anderton Family Dental will cut through the gum tissue, uncovering the jawbone before carefully drilling a hole where your implant will be screwed. The gum will then be replaced and stitched back in its position. Once the bone and the gum are healed after 6 to 12 weeks, your dentist will attach an abutment (a connector post) to the post that will firmly hold your new tooth. The whole process could take about 3 to 6 months and the recovery time could take anywhere from 2 to 3 months.
Communicating with our patients: Dr. Anderton is quoted saying: “We like to do things to connect with our patients. So, to stay in touch, we have a monthly email newsletter, promotions, contests and discount offers, plus a New patient referral reward system.. In addition we are active on Facebook and other social media.”
Some of Our Specialties include:
Dental Crowns and Bridges:
Dental crowns and bridges are used to repair missing or damaged teeth. Anderton Family Dental uses state-of-the-art equipment to create dental crowns and bridges that match the shape and color of your existing teeth. This procedure will also decrease the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and teeth shifting.
Bridges: A dental bridge is a metal/ceramic material or zirconia material that is normally used to replace a missing tooth. It “bridges” the gap between missing or extracted teeth. A bridge procedure is normally completed within two sessions over a course of 2 weeks to six months.
Dental Fillings: When considering dental fillings, one of the options available is composite fillings which are made from durable plastics that are similar in color to natural teeth. Because the composite fillings are tooth-colored, they look more natural and are less noticeable compared to other types of fillings.
Root Canal Therapy: Root canal treatment is the process of going inside the pulp space and removing the infected, dead tissue. The space is then disinfected and sealed with special materials. Root canal treatments are performed with advanced techniques and materials, making them far more comfortable and faster. After root canal treatment is complete, your restorative dentist will usually place a crown on your tooth to safeguard against fracture.
Tooth Extractions: A a tooth extraction is a routine procedure that according to The Mayo Clinic carries a very low risk of long-term complications. The procedure itself is painless when performed by an experienced dentist or oral surgeon, and the recovery process is usually equally simple.
