Multiple Tooth Replacement & Complete Teeth Replacement
If you need multiple tooth replacement or a full teeth replacement, dental implants may be the best solution for you. A dental implant acts like a real tooth root, providing a secure foundation for a tooth crown. Dental implants work effectively for replacing just a few teeth or all of your teeth. Please contact Cooley Smiles in Bellevue and Seattle to find out if you are a candidate for dental implants.
Dental Implants Provide Durable, Secure Replacements
Compared to other tooth replacement options, dental implants have several advantages:
Dental implants fuse to your jaw bone, so the implant is very stable and secure. The durability of dental implants improves chewing function.
Dental implants do not require your dentist to reshape any of your natural teeth, as is the case with a dental bridge. Retaining your natural teeth is good for your long-term oral health.
Dental implants are matched to the color, shape and size of your other teeth, and mimic the natural structure of teeth. You can smile confidently and enjoy the benefits of natural-feeling tooth replacement.
If a tooth root is not replaced, then the underlying jaw bone begins to deteriorate because of a lack of stimulation normally provided by a natural tooth. This bone loss can result in a distorted facial appearance. Dental implants replace the tooth root, maintaining a healthy jaw bone.
Dental implants do not require daily removal and cleaning. They feel just like real teeth, and do not make noises or slide around like dentures.
Whether you need to replace just a few missing teeth or all of your teeth, dental implants may be a better option than a fixed dental bridge or dentures alone.
Dental Implants Replace Multiple Missing Teeth
Unlike a dental bridge, dental implants do not need surrounding teeth for support. Dental implants are a good solution for replacing multiple missing teeth. Implant dentistry is a surgical procedure, and you should know what to expect. The dentists at Cooley Smiles are committed to providing the most successful and effective dental implants, so they work with dental implant specialists for the installment phase. An advantage of the implant procedure is that natural teeth are retained. Dental bridges require surrounding teeth for support, and these teeth have to be ground down to accommodate the fitting of a crown. Dental implants allow you to keep your natural teeth, letting you have a natural smile.
Dental Implants for Complete Teeth Replacement
Dental implants can be used along with a full dental bridge for a new set of durable, natural-looking teeth. Bonded to your jaw bone and supporting the tooth crowns above, dental implants mimic real tooth roots. After the dental implants are placed, the dentists at Cooley Smiles will use a full bridge to replace all of your teeth, providing you with a durable and long-term solution for complete teeth replacement.
Dental implants may be the best solution for you to replace multiple missing teeth or for a full teeth replacement. For implant dentistry in Bellevue and Seattle, please contact the experienced dentists at Cooley Smiles for a consultation.
