When facing the loss of one or more teeth it’s only natural to wonder, “Will I ever feel good about my smile again?” The exciting answer is a resounding, “Yes!” At Elliott Bay Dental, we provide beautiful dental implants to Seattle area patients representing a quantum leap forward in tooth loss – it’s almost like getting your own tooth back!
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a highly sophisticated device that is surgically placed into your jaw bone to replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth. Acting as the root of a tooth, implants provide an incredibly strong foundation for your tooth-like restoration to be placed, completing the implant process.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Some tooth replacement options (bridges, dentures, etc.) simply fill the gap left from a missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants replace the root of a tooth itself, adding strength and stability to the tooth, while most importantly preventing further bone loss. Healthy bone is vital to maintaining an attractive gum line and aesthetic smile, making dental implants a wise and long-lasting investment. If left unfilled, your neighboring teeth will shift and twist to fill the missing space, causing an array of problems in your smile.
Other advantages of implants include:
- Enhanced strength for chewing
- No need to alter adjacent teeth
- Easy to care for – brush and floss like normal!
- Indistinguishable from your natural teeth
