The advantages of dental implants
Implants help prevent jawbone loss. If you lose a permanent tooth, deterioration of the supporting bone structure is inevitable. This occurs because the tooth root is no longer stimulating that area of jawbone so it is re-absorbed into your body. An implant helps prevent this bone loss thanks to the titanium implant screw. When inserted, this screw provides the same stimulation to your jawbone that came from the root of your natural tooth.
Unlimited food choices
An implant is extremely durable, which means you regain a greater amount of your chewing ability than you had with missing teeth. You can start enjoying all the foods you once avoided.
An implant is fixed in the mouth because the implant screw has been installed surgically in your jawbone. That means it won’t slip or shift. You can smile with confidence, and won’t have to worry about your implant affecting your speech. A dental implant is as stable as your natural teeth, so you can feel confident with your tooth placement option.
Cleaning your dental implant is simple. Just brush and floss your implant as you would your other natural teeth. Be sure to clean along the gumline under your implant crown. Floss this area daily to remove bacteria and food particles that could lead to gum infection or total implant failure.
Because the crowns are crafted with beautiful dental porcelain, your restoration will look natural, and blend seamlessly with your smile.
By maintaining a diligent regimen of oral care that includes twice-yearly visits to your Bellevue dentist for a check-up, an implant could last the rest of your life. Dental implants are considered the only virtually permanent tooth replacement option in dentistry.
Of all dental implant procedures, 98 percent of them are successful with diligent care and oral hygiene.
