4 Things You Need to Know about Dental Implants

At Kennedy Dental, our implant dentists in Bellevue, NE provide quality tooth replacements for our patients. Of course, we offer other tooth replacement options, but dental implants are the preferred choice for most dentists because there are many advantages.

Let’s examine four things you need to know about dental implants in Bellevue, NE.

#1 Dental Implants Are Similar to Natural Teeth

Unlike other tooth replacement options, a dental implant replaces the entire tooth from root to dental crown.  

Your dentist surgically implants your replacement root, and it bonds with your jawbone over a period of time. When integration is finished, you’re ready for your new tooth.

#2 A Few Implants Can Support an Entire Arch of New Teeth

You may think that you need a dental implant for each lost tooth. This can be a daunting prospect if you have full tooth loss.

Four to six dental implants are often enough to fix an arch of restorative teeth to your jaw in our dental office.

#3 Implants Promote Better Oral Health

Because dental implants are tooth replacement roots, your jawbone receives needed stimulation. This prevents a prematurely aged appearance around your chin—as tooth loss usually means jawbone loss.

Dental implants also prevent tooth migration, a natural occurrence when teeth are missing, that finds teeth shifting toward smile gaps.

#4 Dental Implants Are Virtually Maintenance Free

Brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist regularly are all that are required to enjoy healthy and functioning dental implants. The way you care for natural teeth is the same way you’ll care for your implant. No adjustments or store-bought adhesives are needed!
