When you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, you might feel the loss every day in your interactions at work, during meals, and while brushing your teeth. Some patients have even reported a lower quality of life because of missing teeth. We care about your happiness and your unique smile, so we offer comprehensive dental implant services in Portland, OR, to replace your missing tooth or teeth.
Dentures and dental bridges are alternative options to an implant. However, patients often complain about dentures poorly fitting, and the inconvenience of having to take them out and put them in frequently. Additionally, dentures can affect taste and food experience. The disadvantage of a bridge is the dependence on natural teeth for support.
What is the Process for a Tooth Implant?
Getting a dental implant requires several phases. The good news is today dental implants are a minimally invasive and comfortable procedure. It’s why most people now choose to replace missing teeth with implants instead of other treatments. When you first come in, we’ll use our latest technology and training to make sure you’re a great candidate and plan your treatment.
This includes a CT scanner to plan optimal placements and a surgical guide to ensure implant posts are placed in those planned locations. Proper planning using this technology helps the entire process go smoothly. Dental implants come in all sizes and shapes, so we’ll take extra care to make sure we determine the best fit for you.
We’ll see if your jawbone is ready and make sure your mouth is healthy. We’ll also take the necessary images to plan the implantation. Dental implant placement is a simple but very precise procedure, so we make absolutely sure that everything checks out.
The next step is to create a new root for each artificial tooth. This is called an “implant” because it’s a small rod implanted in your jaw to provide maximum stability for your new tooth. It replaces your lost root.
Once your new root is healed and integrated with your jawbone, you’ll come in for the last stage: restoration. We’ll place a new crown on each implant, which will look like a natural tooth. We’ll do our absolute best to match it to the color and overall look of the rest of your unique smile. It’s as simple as that. You don’t have to visit any other office during this process. We’ll give you a schedule for your visits and will be with you through every step.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Once you have your dental implants, you’ll notice a few benefits:
- Your implants won’t move or click because they are totally secure in your jawbone.
- Before you know it, you’ll forget it’s anything but one of your own teeth.
- Your restored teeth will be as strong as the rest of your teeth and ready for normal chewing and cleaning.
- And your implants can be used for other treatments in the future, such as securing a bridge or dentures instead of crowns if that becomes necessary.
