Dental Implants in Federal Way, WA
To enjoy the security and benefits of comprehensive tooth replacement, patients choose dental implants after tooth loss. Dental implants act as a prosthetic root for the replacement device (a crown, bridge, or denture) that is secured on top. Dr. Beaty provides dental implants for patients in Federal Way, WA, as well as Auburn, Seattle, Tacoma, Lakeland South, and all surrounding areas.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Teeth replaced with dental implants are so successful because they are made of titanium, a material that has a special quality -- it fuses with bone matter. Once a dental implant is inserted into your jawbone, a recovery period of four to six months is necessary for this osseointegration process to take place. After it’s complete, your dental implants are just another part of your body. They provide unsurpassed stability as a result.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Because dental implants provide the stimulation necessary to keep your jawbone healthy, implant dentistry prevents further tooth loss and helps your mouth maintain its shape. The need to have your denture refitted to keep up with the degenerating jawbone is eliminated with dental implants. A stable jawbone makes for easier eating and better self-confidence, too, strengthening your general wellbeing as a result.
Additional benefits of dental implants include:
- No need to rely on suction or messy denture creams for stability
- The most natural-looking solution in tooth replacement
- Properly-maintained dental implants can last a lifetime
