DENTAL IMPLANTS in Tigard Oregon
A dental implant can be used to restore a single tooth or an entire set of teeth. Dental implants involve the placement of a surgical grade titanium artificial root in the area of the missing tooth or teeth. After a period of healing, the artificial root forms a secure foundation for the attachment of a dental restoration such as crowns, bridges or dentures that is custom created for you. While typical dentures shift and require the use of denture adhesives to keep them in place, dental implants fit solidly, reducing the problems associated with traditional dentures such as gum sores and difficulty speaking and difficulty chewing. Dental implants are sometimes used instead of bridges to maintain the integrity of the teeth on either side of the gap.
With dental implants, your smile can be full, functional and gorgeous once again. Enjoy eating easily, smiling fully, speaking plainly and living comfortably. Whether replacing one tooth or a full set of teeth, feel confident knowing that your dental implants are secure and permanent, giving you a solution you can rely on. Dental implants can be cared for through regular maintenance and care, just as you would normally care for your teeth. Should you need a restoration to one or more of the prosthetics, your dentist can provide restorative care for you since the artificial root has already been placed.
