The Benefits of Dental Implants
Patients who undergo dental implant surgery not only improve their appearance, they also leave our office with stronger and healthier smiles.
Implants fill in gaps left by missing teeth, restoring the look of a complete, attractive smile. With implants you will be able to smile and present yourself to the world more confidently without worrying about unattractive gaps in your mouth. Implants also restore the ability to chew, allowing you to eat with ease. Filling in gaps left by missing teeth also reduces the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, promoting good oral health. And because implants are placed in the jawbone, they help stimulate the bone to prevent it from shrinking and deteriorating. This in turn helps maintain a normal-looking facial appearance.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots designed to support dental restorations that replace missing teeth. Considered to be the most long-lasting solution to missing teeth, dental implants restore a patient’s ability to chew, speak and smile confidently.
Dental Implant Candidacy
You may be a suitable candidate for dental implants in Bellevue if you:
Candidacy for dental implants is determined on a case-by-case basis with Dr. Jones. The dentist can design a customized treatment plan for your teeth following a thorough examination of your mouth and discussion of your dental concerns.
Types of Dental Implants
Depending on your needs, dental implants can replace one tooth, several teeth or all of the teeth in the lower and/or upper jaw. Each dental implant will be customized to fit the unique specifications of your mouth. To ensure your smile looks as natural as possible, we will carefully craft your dental implant to match the size, shape and color of your natural teeth.
Single-tooth implants consist of a dental crown attached to an implant post. The post is surgically inserted into the jawbone and the crown is placed on top of the gums.
Implant-supported bridges replace several teeth and some tooth roots.
Implant-supported dentures replace an entire arch of teeth in the lower and/or upper jaw. Dentures can be fixed or removable, depending on your needs.
We are excited to have added ceramic implants, a metal-free option, to our dental restoration portfolio. Ceramic implants help those patients that have concerns about metals or have a metal allergy. Patients that have multiple sensitivities may be suitable candidates for ceramic implants.
The Implant Placement Process
Dental implant restoration and placement at our Bellevue dental practice is a multi-step process. First, Dr. Jones will listen to you to fully understand your desires and concerns about your mouth and smile. Next she carefully examines your mouth to determine the number and location of implants needed. She will also determine which type of dental restoration is the most appropriate for your case. Dr. Lynn Jones will then make impressions that will be used to craft your replacement tooth or teeth.
Dr. Jones will place the implant post or posts into the jawbone via an oral surgery procedure. Before placing your permanent dental restoration, the implant must fuse with your jawbone, a process that can take several months. During this time, a temporary tooth may be placed. Once the implant is completely fused into your jawbone, you will return to our office so Dr. Jones can place the permanent restoration in your mouth. She will make any necessary adjustments to your restoration to ensure it fits perfectly in your mouth.
The implant placement process is typically performed over the course of two appointments at our dental practice. During the oral surgery procedure, you will be placed under anesthesia for your complete comfort.
