Dental Implants Seattle

Dental Implants Seattle

Dental implants is a long-term solution for tooth loss. They are also used to secure partial or complete dentures as well as support for dental bridges.

An artificial tooth is surgically anchored into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth in place. Since these implants are held by the jaw bone, they have the same, dependable foundation as natural tooth roots. With permanently placed implants, you will no longer have to experience discomfort in chewing, laughing or speaking.

Dental implants resemble natural teeth and can completely restore your smile and substantially improve your oral health. More advantages of dental implants include:

  • Improved speech – With a removable device like dentures, teeth can slip within the mouth and can cause you to slur or mumble your words. A dental implant allows you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
  • Improved comfort – Dental implants remove the discomfort of removable dentures.
  • Improved oral health – Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health.
  • Durability – With proper oral care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
  • Easier eating – Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat foods without pain.

Our team will discuss tooth replacement options with you to help you make the most informed decision. Modern technology is utilized to minimize any discomfort associated with receiving a dental implant. This allows for a very relaxed and comfortable experience, for even the most fearful patients in Seattle.

Many factors will be considered before recommending a dental implant, including adequate bone support, healthy gum tissue, overall health, and sinus and nerve location.

Dental Implants FAQs

Are Dental Implants Painful?

While the dental implant procedure involves a minor surgery, your dentist will use local anesthesia to make it as comfortable as possible. If you have dental anxiety, we can also offer sedation dentistry services to help you relax during the procedure. These include nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas), oral conscious sedation, intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia.

Some discomfort or swelling may occur for a few days after getting your surgery, but the pain is typically managed effectively with over-the-counter painkillers. The process is often described more as discomfort than actual pain.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Most people in good general health and have adequate bone density in their jaw can be good candidates for dental implant treatment. You must also have healthy gums and be free of periodontal disease. Certain specific conditions, such as diabetes or osteoporosis, may affect the success of dental implants, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you are not a good candidate.

Our dental implants in Seattle, Washington are custom-made to fit your unique needs and our experienced team can help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

What Is the Best Age for Dental Implants?

There’s no specific “best” age for tooth implants, but they’re typically recommended for adults who have completed their jaw growth. This usually occurs around age 18 for girls and 20 for boys. However, it’s always best to visit us so we can determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. We will assess your overall health, jawbone density and other factors to determine if you’re ready for dental implants.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

With good oral care and regular checkups, dental implants can last 25 years or more. However, the dental crown may need replacement every 10-15 years due to wear and tear, but the titanium implant itself is designed to be a long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth.

How Many Teeth Do You Need for Implants?

The number of teeth needed for implants depends on the amount and location of the missing teeth. Bone loss is a significant factor but can frequently be addressed by a bone grafting procedure by our experienced dental implants Seattle team. Typically, one dental implant is required per missing tooth. However, if you are missing two or more teeth in a row, only two implant placements might be needed to support 1-3 pontic teeth.

When it comes to full-mouth replacements, methods vary. Some procedures use as few as two or four implants, while others may require six or more. For instance, the “teeth in a day” procedure typically involves placing a minimum of four implants to suspend 12 teeth in each jaw.

In the case of implant-supported dentures, the number of implants can range from two to four, and sometimes even more, depending on individual patient needs.

BEFORE AND AFTER GALLERY

Cosmetic and Family dentist in Seattle, WA

Kim

Kim’s teeth had been both victim of neglect and dental fear. She was read to have her smile back. As we progressed through her treatment, Kim’s confidence grew, and her gorgeous new smile says it all!

Kim finally built up the courage to visit our office during the start of the pandemic. Her emotional story of fear and poor dentistry was presented with honesty and commitment and demanded our attention. We reviewed her x-rays and diagnostics along with leveraged compassion, care, and dental expertise to create a smile that left everyone filled with joy. We don’t fix teeth; we fix patients. In Kim’s case, we were able to not only improve her smile, but eliminate her dental fears!

Craig

Craig’s teeth were damaged from years of clenching and grinding due to stress. We came up with a plan to restore Craig’s smile and self-esteem!

Craig’s teeth suffered from years of neglect, resulting in a significant number of cavities, and punishing results of clenching and grinding (bruxism), especially at night. We sat down for a one-on-one consultation to develop a custom plan with the goal of restoring his smile and maintaining it for long-term success. Craig’s commitment and enthusiasm spread throughout our team as we custom-built his plan. His treatment resulted in a cosmetically pleasing, functional smile that was designed to resist any future stresses from bruxism.

Dr. Aranka

Dr. Aranka gave a lifetime commitment to his patients and community but did not give himself a lifetime of care for his oral health. We created a fabulous smile for him, and he shows it to us every day!

Dr. Aranka is a retired local physician who stepped through our doors. He was unhappy with his smile and the condition of his oral health. He was tired of quick fixes that ultimately did not last. We sat together in the consultation room and outlined a vision for a long-term solution that would give him a healthy, functioning, and aesthetically pleasing smile. Dr. Aranka now comes in every day smiling and thankful for what our team has provided him.

Marco

Marco didn’t like his smile but didn’t know what to do about it. Our initial consultation included examples of what could change, and now Marco couldn’t be happier with his smile!

Marco recently semi-retired from his career in commercial real estate. He’s always been a bubbly, funny man but always seemed to have a reservation about his smile. One day I asked Marco if he liked his smile, and he said he didn’t. So I invited him to a consultation and showed him all the changes that could be made aesthetically, from his gum line to coloration to lip support. We did a little recontouring for his lower arch, light dentistry for his upper arch, and a tooth bleaching, and Marco is now thrilled to share his smile.

Alexa

Alexa didn’t like how her teeth looked and was ready for a smile transformation. She had overcome major life obstacles and was ready for a smile to match her new life. After neglecting her dental health for over 10 years, she made the brave decision to visit our office for a consultation.

Alexa and I discussed her smile goals and treatment options for long-term success. She put her full trust in us and completed multiple procedures including crown lengthening, implants, and full mouth reconstruction. As her treatment progressed, her confidence grew dramatically! We completed Botox and lip/cheek filler to enhance her already beautiful features and she could not be happier with the final results. Alexa is no longer scared of the dentist and her smile lights up any room she walks into!
