Benefits of Dental Implants



A Happy smile woman smiling about the Benefits of Dental Implants in Bremerton, WAThanks to technological advancements, patients today have several options to choose from when it comes to restoring missing teeth. At Pacific Ave. Dental, we believe dental implants are the ideal choice. For patients with missing teeth, dental implants have proven to be a durable and esthetically-pleasing solution. Thanks to dental implants, Dr. Hablutzel can restore your smile back to its beauty and function!

What are Dental Implants?


A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed below the gums and into the jaw bone. During the healing period, the implant and bone will fuse together to create a powerful bond. This process is known as osseointegration. Once the bone and the implant are properly fused, we attach an abutment. Abutments can be used to support dental crowns, fixed bridges, or even dentures. The type of restoration you receive depends on the amount of missing or decayed teeth. For patients missing one tooth, we use a dental crown. For patients missing several teeth, multiple implants are used to support a fixed bridge. When an entire arch of teeth needs to be replaced, we can use an implant-retained denture.


The Advantages of Implants


Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth. The implant serves as the root of the tooth, and as such, mimics the strength and stability of your natural teeth. When compared to other restorations, implants offer some advantages:
•  Increased comfort. Other restorations rest on the gum and can irritate. Your dental implant will become a part of you. Some patients even forget they have an implant!
•  Better speech. Removable restorations like dentures and false tooth retainers can slip or cause you to mumble your words. Implants are a permanent solution with a superior fit.
•  Improved bite force. Implants allow you to eat all your favorite foods with confidence. With the stability and strength of an implant, there are no issues chewing tough foods.
•  Convenience. Other restorations require specialized tools, adhesives, and cleaning techniques. With implants, you can brush and floss as you normally would.
•  Durability. Implants have an unmatched durability. In fact, implants have a 98% success rate. Under the proper care, your implant can last decades or even a lifetime.
•  Improved self-esteem and esthetics. Smiling can be an awkward and embarrassing experience when you are missing a tooth. Also, patients with removable appliances may have to worry about slips and inferior esthetics. Patients with implants experience the very best in stability and cosmetics. With dental implants, you can smile with confidence!
•  Better oral health. One of the biggest benefits of implants is an improvement in your long-term oral health. Traditional bridges and crowns require a reshaping of your enamel, which can lead to decay and structural issues later down the road. Implants do not alter surrounding teeth or require any reshaping. Also, osseointegration helps you retain more of your natural bone structure. Without teeth, your jawbone will deteriorate over time. Implants mimic the function of the root, stimulate the bone, and halt deterioration.
