Dental Implant Treatment
Missing a tooth? It’s more common than you may think. While society unfairly judges those with missing teeth, the good news is you have an option, a dental implant, with the dental specialists at Dental Studio.
Dental implants, AKA a dental crown, come in all shapes, sizes, materials, and more. Whether you’re missing one tooth or a group of teeth, we can help with a dental implant procedure that won’t disappoint!
Missing teeth aren’t something anyone wants to live with. They leave our mouth feeling strange as the tongue explores the area where a tooth used to exist and it can be quite stressful.
Over the years, dental implant surgery is something that’s has existed in many different shapes and forms, and even today there are many types to choose from.
Using different materials in our dental office, a modern implant can be color-matched to your existing teeth leaving you with a smile that looks as if no tooth or teeth had been missing in the first place.
Why is it important to get an implant done as soon as possible? When teeth are missing, your jawbone evolves. With no pressure on the bone, it changes shape and withers.
In some cases, existing teeth may start to shift, and in the case of numerous missing teeth, the bone can fade away making it difficult to get an implant done.
In severe cases, a bone transplant may be required to build up enough area for the
implant to be inserted.
Dental implants from Oregon Dental Studio can be your ticket to a normal and healthy-looking smile, and as mentioned above, they can prevent your jawbone from changing shape.
With proper care, an implant can last you a lifetime. With color-matching available, your preferred choice of material, and custom shaping to match the rest of your teeth, you can go through life with missing teeth and nobody will know but you.
If that sounds like something you’re interested in, call our friendly and professional staff. We are eager to answer any questions you may have.
When looking at replacing multiple missing teeth, the all on 4 and 6 procedures are worth being considered.
These procedures involve surgically implanting an overdenture through either 4 or 6 implants. Think of it like having that set of teeth all connected, with only 4 or 6 roots into your jaw.
What makes all on 4 and 6 procedures attractive? Many years ago, the only option to replace numerous teeth at once required each tooth to be implanted separately, causing significant pain and healing time (upwards of 6 months in some cases).
With the all on 4 or 6 procedures, you have fewer surgical implants, and therefore the less healing time needed (usually around three months). Our dentists can also provide you temporary removable dentures while your implants heal.
