Benefits of dental implants for Kirkland area patients
Dr. Kelley works closely with all of her patients to help them achieve healthier, more beautiful smiles. When patients are affected by tooth loss, it not only impacts oral health, but also takes a toll on confidence. At Kingsgate Dental, we offer several solutions for restoring the smile after tooth loss.
Replacing permanent teeth after loss is important for adults in order to avoid further problems. When teeth are missing it can cause remaining teeth to shift out of alignment. This causes two problems:
- Bone degeneration
- Difficulty with plaque removal
Both of these problems can contribute to oral diseases and can drastically impact appearance. By replacing missing teeth, patients can preserve oral health. Some of the most common solutions for tooth replacement are dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants. While all three have their advantages, we encourage all of our patients to consider the advantages of dental implants.
Dental implants act as replacements for natural tooth roots. They are placed securely in the jawbone, where they fuse and become part of the natural structure. Implants can then be completed with crowns, dentures or dental bridges for a fixed solution that can stay in place for a lifetime.
Some of the many benefits of dental implants include:
Dental implants function like natural teeth. Patients will have complete functionality and the ability to enjoy their favorite foods without fear of embarrassment. Dental implants also help improve health by stimulating the jawbone and preserving the dental arches as well as the facial structure.
At Kingsgate Dental, we strive to provide services that improve quality of life. Whether its restorative options like dental implants, or cosmetic options to address imperfections, we are here to help you. If you would like more information on dental implants, please call us today at (425) 385-0080.
