Why Should You Consider Dental Implants?

Row Of Teeth With Single Dental Implant
Are you struggling to decide which restorative option is right for you? Aside from dental implants, our dentist may also suggest alternatives including bridges and dentures. But dental implants are considered the gold standard in replacing missing teeth and for some pretty amazing reasons:

  • Permanent replacement – Up 25 years, sometimes longer.
  • More natural appearance.
  • More comfortable; when compared to dentures and bridges.
  • Prevents bone loss.
  • Can be used to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch.
  • Zero worry about dental restoration falling out.
  • Stronger replacement, allowing you to eat more foods, confidently.
  • Gain a beautiful, complete smile, sometimes at the same time of implant placement.

As you can see, there are a bunch of reasons why patients are choosing dental implants for their restorations. For those that currently have dentures, these can be an upgrade, allowing you to preserve your jaw bone by preventing bone loss, and to have more confidence that your dentures won’t come loose at inopportune times.

Every patient is different. Your unique situation will determine which restorative prosthetic is right for you. During a consultation with Dr. Kitts or Dr. Hewett, they will discuss what outcome you are expecting and tailor a treatment plan to obtain the best result possible. For a single missing tooth, the use of one dental implant and crown is the standard option, while replacing multiple teeth could have several variables. A popular option for those needing to replace an entire arch is All-On-4 Dental Implants. With this service, four titanium posts are used to support a special denture that attaches to the abutments, for a more secure fitment.

Dental implants aren’t right for every patient. One of the things that will be looked at during your consultation is the health of your jawbone, the alignment of your remaining teeth and many more factors. Those that have significant bone loss, whether due to age, or the use of dentures for several years, may not be suitable for implant placement right away. Other procedures may be necessary which could include a sinus lift or bone graft.

Are You Feeling Less Confident Because of a Missing Tooth?

Not being able to smile as big as you want to can affect many aspects in one’s life. From personal relationships to your professional career, your smile is the first thing a person will notice.

If you aren’t feeling a 100% happy with the appearance of your smile due to a missing tooth or teeth, let us help.

Dental Implants Are the Ultimate Option for Replacement Teeth

You may have heard about dental implants or seen a brochure in our office about the great benefits of dental implants and thought about replacing your current dental fixture with something more permanent. Because implants can last up to 25 years, are more comfortable, and are certainly more secure, they are a welcomed change for those that have dentures.

Never worry that your dentures will fall out, or that you will have difficulty eating the foods you want to, when you choose dental implants with our dentist in Edmonds.

Our goal is to exceed our patients’ expectations for their implant restoration, so that they leave our office feeling excited and ready to take on the world.

FAQ

Blank
How painful is getting a dental implant?
Getting a dental implant placed isn’t as painful as you might think. While your dentist will need to make an incision into the gum, patients are given a local anesthetic to numb the area. The placement of the implant isn’t painful for most people, but is more a feeling of pressure. The jawbone doesn’t contain nerve endings, which is where the dental implant will be inserted.
How much does insurance pay for dental implants?
Typically, most dental insurance companies will not contribute to the cost of a dental implant. Implants are considered a cosmetic procedure, and most don’t offer coverage for this type of process. A conservative estimate for the costs of a single dental implant is $3,000-$4,000.
Blank
How often do dental implants need to be replaced?
The great news about dental implants is their longevity. Implants are designed to last upwards of 25 years or more. Many patients won’t have to replace an implant in their lifetime, with proper care and regular checkups. In comparison, dental fixtures like bridges and dentures will only last five to ten years.
Can you have a full mouth of dental implants?
Absolutely! For those that need full arch replacements, both top and bottom, dental implants can be used. Most patients will require four implants per arch to support a complete implant-supported denture. In some instances more may be needed, and is dependent on the specific patient, their jawbone condition, and other factors.
