Kirkland, WA area patients ask, why get dental implants?

Dr. Ann Kelley at Kingsgate Dental explains why get dental implants to patients in Kirkland, WA area

Tooth loss leads patients in the Kirkland, WA area to consider a wide selection of options for tooth replacement. When patients are interested in permanent, long-term solutions, we encourage them to make an appointment with Dr. Ann Kelley of Kingsgate Dental to discuss the advantages of using dental implants in the smile.

Dental implants explained

Dental implants are essentially tooth root replacements made of biocompatible materials such as titanium metal. These root replacements look like small posts that the dentist places into the bone of the jaw during oral surgery. The procedure is done right in the office and time is needed for the bone to grow around the implant—holding it firmly in place. Dr. Ann Kelley estimates the time from start to finish to take several weeks to months, depending on how the bone reacts to the placement of the implant.

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

Most patients with healthy bone structure are considered viable candidates for procedures such as the placement of dental implants. This is because the bone is required to solidify the implant in place and give it the strength it requires to withstand natural chewing and biting forces. Implants are sometimes used to stabilize dentures, so the strength of the implant and its foundation is incredibly important in situations such as this.

Why get dental implants?

Implants are chosen by many of our patients because they are:

  • A smart investment for long-term restoration
  • Easy to place during oral surgery
  • Stronger and more durable than alternatives
  • Natural-looking
  • Functional as natural teeth once were

 - 5 Star Rating Review By Kathy W Dr. Kelley and her staff are a treasure. State of the art equipment, As a past Dental Administrator for a very large practice in Lynnwood, am soo happy to know that Dr. Kelley, her hygenists who have been there for over 20 years, are bar none the most indepth and through a cleaning as you would ever find. I have never felt more then a slight prick when getting novocaine. Between numbing the gum and gentle procedure they also offer nitroux, for us real scaredy cats. Music, neck pillows and blankets all make the experience truly enjoyable. I had gone too many years neglecting my teeth and found through Tammy, my hygenist and Dr. Kelley they were able to put together a plan to save the teeth they could and design partials for the ones I could not afford to save. I am a small business owner with no insurance and yet they came up with a plan that I am so happy with. I am without any infection, so much healthier and the partials Dr. Kelley designed are like a second skin. From Jackie and MaryAnn at the front desk to the assistants, hygenists and Dr. Kelley you will be in professional and caring hands. I recommend to all my family and friends.
