Dental Implants in Seattle for Denture Wearers and More
If you are tired of wearing dentures, call and schedule a no obligation dental implants consultation with the team from Dental Specialties Northwest.
Thanks to dental technology, even people who have been wearing dentures for years may now qualify for the strongest replacement for missing teeth.
What are Conventional Dental Implants?
Dental implants are posts or screws that your implant dentist surgically places in your jawbone. After healing, which can take from six to 9 months, or longer if bone grafting is necessary, artificial teeth are placed on top of the posts. Depending on your situation, you may need one, two, multiple or a complete set of dental implants.
Are Dental Implants Strong?
Because dental implants fuse to your bone, a process known as osseointegration, dental implants are as strong if not stronger than your natural teeth. They look beautiful and won’t decay. However, you must practice good oral hygiene, including regular checkups with your dentist in Seattle, and treat your new implants as you would your natural teeth.
Is Everyone a Candidate for Dental Implants?
In the past, people who wore dentures weren’t the best candidates for dental implants, but thanks to new technology, such as All on 4’s, even people who have worn dentures for years can now live a better life with permanent teeth and dental implants. Replacing bridges and dentures has never been easier thanks to the team of implant dentists in Seattle.
All on 4’s Dental Implants
All on 4s is an excellent solution for people who wear dentures and for people who have teeth that need to be extracted. All on 4’s only require four implant posts on each arch making it easy to have new teeth in a day.
Unlike traditional dental implants, there may be no need for bone grafting for people who are having teeth removed and replaced the same day.
One of the biggest advantages of the All on 4 tooth replacement system is that they don’t press on the gums like conventional dentures do. With the All on 4 dental implant system, you can eat and enjoy food like you used to.
The All on 4’s teeth are placed immediately, usually 24 hours after you have had surgery and your dental posts placed.
Single Dental Implants in Seattle
Of course, if you aren’t missing all of your teeth and have healthy teeth and gums, you may want to consider single dental implants.
Unlike dental bridges, dental implants act as a real tooth with roots that fuse to the bone. Single dental implants also mean less removal of the abutment or adjoining teeth. With single dental implants, you won’t have to worry about replacing your dental bridge either.
