Top 5 Reasons to Consider Dental Implants

Dental Implants are a big decision in ones life and they are a very popular solution for patients who have experienced the loss of natural teeth. There are many reasons to consider dental implants, and both Dr. Jeff & Annie Knudson DDS, of the University District area are ready to consult with patients who need their smile restored to it’s original beauty.

1. Restore Function

The first reason why to consider dental implants is because they use the existing jawbone for stability and strength when chewing. This makes them function exactly like natural teeth do. The implant itself, acts as the root, and the fitment helps the bone wrap the restoration for incredible strength. You’ll have amazing and effortless results as biting forces are redistributed to the jawbone like it should.

2. A Single Tooth or an Entire Smile

Dental implants are very versatile as they can be used for a single use application or a multiple tooth application. Implants can be restored using crowns, bridges, or dentures, depending on the needs of patient.


Another reason why we like Dental implants is because they are permanent. They do not need to be taken out like dentures do. This minor thing makes patients happy because they are such low maintenance.

With precision fitment and state of the art application, simply stated, implants are made to last.


Dental implants can be restored with bridges and crowns, which are made to mirror the existing teeth to ensure they are just as beautiful. This is a great solution for discreet restoration after tooth loss.

Furthermore, dental implants help you maintain the beauty of the smile. In fact, they provide support for your other teeth by holding them in place. After tooth loss, surrounding teeth will likely drift out of place. The  implant maintains their alignment and positioning.

5. Value

As previously state in the #3 reason, dental implants can last a lifetime. Compared to other restoration procedures, implants have the highest value and least maintenance. The only issue if there were any is upfront cost. Be sure to check with your insurance provider for what your plan includes. While they may cost more upfront, they are highly successful in placement and do not require further treatment over the course of time unlike other options.
