Tooth loss affects people of all ages and can result in irregular bite patterns and loss of bone tissue and gum. Our dentists at Washington Dental have exceptional training in installing dental implants. We usually administer an initial exam to assess your suitability for the service.

How We Can Help
We acknowledge the huge impact oral health has on people's overall health. Our work is to offer you a convenient solution for maintaining healthy gums and teeth to improve your overall health. Since it is possible to catch periodontal and dental problems early, we focus on reversing or correcting them easily and affordably. You can count on us for both restorative and preventative dental services and cosmetic dentistry services (which include teeth whitening).
Our dentists can offer you expert guidelines on improving your oral health at home, work, or school. You can also seek advice on how to do the same for your children. We enjoy guiding patients through the path of healing and recovery after they undergo various dental procedures/surgeries. All in all, our services aim at helping you prevent dental problems and have them corrected early enough before they become severe.
Dentists at Washington Dental are always on-call to respond to patients' problems/emergencies. We allow patients to make requests for personalized services since they have a say in their overall oral health and take time listening to their requests. Our patient-oriented services make patients feel comfortable during dental procedures/surgeries. We believe in the virtue of building our future skills and experiences based on the knowledge and encounters we have daily. Some of the services we offer are discussed below.
Most of our dental procedures will require x-ray images. We use up-to-date digital X-ray machines to guarantee instant, high-resolution X-ray images. You can view the results on an LCD screen or have them presented on a photographic film. Our X-ray machines produce about 90 percent less radiation than other machines sold in the market today. Dental care experts at Washington Dental also rely on intraoral mini-camera technology to access the hard-to-reach mouth areas when administering exams or checkups.
White Composite Fillings
Our dentists use white composite fillings that seamlessly blend into your teeth if you have cavities. The fillings, made of composite resin, are strong, stain-resistant, and built-to-last. One good thing about white composite fillings is that they only require a small part of your tooth to be removed. They are better in terms of quality when compared to options like amalgam, silver, and gold.
Application of Dental Bonds and Veneers
Dental bonding is an effective method for sealing chips, fissures, and other imperfections found on the tooth surface. The technique also helps hide any discolorations on the teeth. Dentists at Washington Dental use affordable, safe, and durable enamel-colored bonding agents.
Apart from dental bonding, veneering also helps cover dental discolorations on the teeth. We usually use porcelain veneers, which are paper-thin in size and are suited to bond to the tooth. Veneers are effective at shrinking interdental gaps and covering the whole front or large areas of a tooth.
Terms and Frequently Asked Questions
Dental Bridges and Dentures
Bridges and dentures help eradicate gum/bone loss, difficulty speaking or chewing, and tooth migration, among other tooth loss related problems. If your teeth are far back in the mouth or missing, a dental bridge may be an ideal option. Dentures, on the other hand, may suit you if you do not want implants or if your mouth cannot stand implants. They can be removable, fixed, full or partial depending on your dental needs.
Before installing any crowns on your teeth, our dentists will help you understand the differences between various crown materials. Dental crowns help strengthen a cracked, worn out, badly damaged, or chipped tooth. They also help cap a dental implant root or root canal tooth. The various types of dental crowns offered by us include composite resin, zirconia, ceramic, and porcelain. Others include metal-fused-porcelain and metal.
Is your tooth's pulp infected, but the entire tooth structure is intact? A dental implant will work when you have a badly damaged tooth, while a filling will only work when you have a tooth cavity. You may consider getting a root canal operation, which is effective at removing the infected pulp and cleaning your tooth canal. Root canals also help cap your tooth with a crown for keeping it fully functional and strong after filling it with gutta-percha.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Our professional teeth whitening services help remove deep-seated stains (which home remedies cannot remove) found in the teeth. We usually apply zoom teeth whitening, a procedure considered by dentists worldwide for effective tooth bleaching. With this approach, our experts help your teeth achieve a brighter appearance. You only need one brief visit to our facilities to have this procedure administered to you.
Braces and Invisalign
As a type of invisible braces consisting of acrylic trays, Invisalign helps nudge your teeth into proper position. People will not notice that you are wearing Invisalign since its trays are translucent. Metal braces help treat tooth alignment problems, just like Invisalign. However, most patients prefer having Invisalign trays on their teeth over metal braces.
Washington Dental is staffed with experts specializing in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases, disorders, or conditions of the teeth, mouth, jaw, and gums. We consider these specialty areas as the basis for proper oral health. Our experts receive a lot of questions from patients regarding oral health and our services. Some of these frequently asked questions are as follows:
Why Should I Visit Washington Dental?
Visiting our facilities regularly will help keep your teeth, mouth, and the rest of your body healthy. Our services can help protect your teeth against tooth decay and periodontal disease (known for causing bone and tooth loss). We can also recommend safe flossing and brushing procedures to reduce bacteria deposits known for causing bad breath.
How is the Patient Service at Washington Dental?
Patients leave our facilities with a more attractive smile and increased self-confidence. We can help keep your teeth looking bright and prevent them from getting stained by tobacco, drinks, and food. We customize our services for patients looking to have strong teeth for them to enjoy long-term healthy and beautiful smiles.
Will I Get the Right Type of Implants?
Our dentists carry out initial exams to help determine whether you need to soft tissue grafts or bone grafts to make room for the implants. Our dental care experts can guide you through the process and ensure you make informed decisions on the right type of implant. Implant-supported permanent dentures are an ideal option for patients with most or all teeth missing on both jaws or one jaw. Single implants, on the other hand, help replace lost individual teeth.
We use modern dental implants comprising a safe-to-use titanium root. The implants work by allowing the titanium root to bond with your underlying bone tissue for them to function like natural teeth. We consider dental implants as the best option for tooth restoration. Allow us to help you restore your smile using modern dental implants.
What is Washington Dental Reputable for?
Apart from offering a broad range of dental and oral care services, we are reputable for offering patients convenient appointment schedules. Our offices are easy to get to and appear to be orderly and clean. When you visit our facilities, an expert will record your medical/dental history in a permanent file. You will also be referred to a dentist (an ADA-certified one) who will facilitate the consultation and present you information about the costs of service you are seeking.

Our expert approach to dentistry helps save our patients time while making us productive and efficient at work. Our dentists are always on call even for the minute services requested by patients. The list of our frequently-exercised dental specialty areas is highly comprehensive. You can gain more insights into our detailed service areas and services by contacting us. The service areas include the following:
- Endodontics (an example being root canals)
- Oral surgery (including extractions)
- Periodontics (a specialty area in dentistry covering the treatment of different stages of gum/periodontal disease)
- Prosthodontics (which include dental implants and dentures)
- Orthodontics (our dentists can install both Invisalign and traditional braces)
- Pediatric Dentistry (children’s dental care requiring a lot of patience/compassion and special expertise)
What Should I Do Between My Dental checkups?
Remember to use fluoride toothpaste and brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss once in a while. Avoid taking foods with a lot of sugar and consuming tobacco since they can stain the teeth and cause gum disease. Brush your tongue, too, and visit us regularly (every six months).
At What Age Should My Child See the Dentist?
AAPD (the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry) advises parents/guardians to take their children to the dentist when they are six months old. During this age, your child will start developing baby teeth — schedule regular checkups for your child every six months after the first visit.
What Should I Do When I’m at Risk of Gum Disease or Oral Cancer?
A proper diagnosis from a dentist can help determine your likelihood of developing gum disease or oral cancer. If you are at risk of these diseases, visit Washington Dental more than twice every year. Reach out to a dentist whenever you experience any signs or symptoms of the diseases.
When Should I Have My Toothbrush Changed?
Toothbrushes wear out with time, hence the need to change them every three months. Read the instructions on your electric toothbrush (if you have one) on how to maintain it. If you have gum disease, change your toothbrush every four or six weeks to prevent the spread of bacteria. Rising the toothbrush with hot water helps keep its bristles clean and kill bacteria.
Do I Need Dental checkups Every Six Months If I Have Braces?
As a patient receiving orthodontic treatment, you should visit our facilities regularly. Braces tend to trap food in places a toothbrush cannot reach. Regular checkups will ensure that your teeth stay healthy and clean as you wear braces.
How Do I Schedule My Next Dental Checkup?
We have a telephone number available to patients looking to schedule dental appointments. You can also make a request on our website for the same. If you are a new patient, we will kindly inform you of everything you need, and we will honor your request on your first visit.
