Dental Implants –┬áTacoma and Gig Harbor

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.

Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. For more information about dental implants or to schedule a consultation appointment, contact us today!

As our patient, you will have access to the most up-to-date treatment options using state-of-the-art technology to better serve you with the highest standard of care and comfort. This includes digital 2D imaging as well as cone beam computerized tomography, which allows 3D facial reconstruction and provides accurate full spectrum diagnosis with the least amount of radiation possible in an environmentally friendly fashion avoiding the use of toxic chemicals.

Dr. Manuel La Rosa and Dr. Silvia La Rosa strive to offer our patients ideal periodontal and surgical care with uncompromised personal attention. We enjoy the beautiful smiles we see as your dreams become reality.

We work as a part of an interdisciplinary team that is here to serve you better: the team members include your restorative or family dentist, your orthodontist, endodontist and when needed your primary care physician. If you do not have a restorative or family dentist, please ask either Dr. La Rosa they will be glad in giving you recommendations if necessary.

Our philosophy of work puts you, our patient, first. As a team we strive to provide you with the best possible care and the best oral surgical experience, from the moment you set foot in our office. We are here to help and encourage you to ask any questions regarding your care.
