What are Dental Implants?
The permanent solution for missing teeth.
At Denti Belli Dentistry, we use the most up-to-date technological advances in dentistry to provide you with multiple restorative options under one roof. Why do we recommend dental implants as the gold standard for replacing missing teeth?
You may feel a missing tooth or two is not a serious problem. However, these empty spaces result in significant tooth movement, which will affect your bite, causing excessive tooth wear, decrease forces of chewing, chronic headaches, and jaw pain.
By replacing missing teeth with implants, patients experience:
Why should you choose dental implants?
Replacement teeth are made to match the shade and shape of your teeth, blending with your smile. No one can tell the difference! Plus, you can eat all of your favorite foods!
Implants fill the empty space without having to damage or grind down adjacent natural teeth.
Dental implants are cavity resistant! With proper care and good oral hygiene, your implant can last almost a lifetime.
Replacing missing teeth quickly can prevent the need for extra procedures in the future. Your investment now can save you time and money down the road.
After a tooth is lost, it is common to lose both bone height and width. Although bone grafting can replace this bone, the procedure can be uncomfortable and costly. Dental implants can prevent this.
Missing teeth and bone structure may cause your lips to lose support and your cheeks to sink in. These changes to your facial structure and appearance can make you appear older and result in wrinkles.
The procedure consists of three parts:
- The Titanium Post: Dr. Taylor starts the implant procedure From there, it takes about 3-6 months for the gum and jawbone to fuse with the post. Once it fuses, we can place the abutment and crown.
- The Abutment: Dr. Taylor will put on the abutment, which is the foundation to place the crown.
- The Crown: Lastly, Dr. Taylor will place a crown on the abutment to blend with your natural teeth. You’ll walk out of your Renton dentist’s office with a beautiful smile.
