Dental implants are the best way to replace lost teeth and have, since their introduction, radically changed and improved dentistry. At Redmond Signature Dentistry, we are experienced and capable, your Redmond dentist for implants.
What is an Implant?
An implant is a titanium post, surgically inserted into the gum line, that allows bridges and teeth to be placed securely and with a natural look. Unlike bridges, teeth inserted on an implant don’t need to be anchored to other teeth.
What are the advantages of implants?
Implants have revolutionized dentistry because, compared to bridges and dentures, they are:
• Functional. They allow you to eat, smile, and chew in a completely natural fashion.
Implants will also restore or retain your true facial shape, filling out sags made by missing teeth and fitting naturally, unlike some bridges and dentures.
They also have a much higher success rate than bridges and dentures.
Am I a candidate for implants?
Implants will work for most individuals. Certain diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as some bone conditions may, however, make them unsuitable for some individuals. Make an appointment with your Redmond Signature dentist to see if this outstanding dental technology is right for you.
