Tooth loss can seriously affect your oral health. Turn to dental implants to turn everything around.
When it comes to your dental health you want all the best. If you are dealing with tooth loss, you want something that will provide you with new teeth that will truly last. Dr. Trenton LeBaron, your Keizer, OR family and cosmetic dentist can show you how dental implants can improve you smile's appearance and oral health. Dr. LeBaron has received advanced dental training in the placement and restoration of dental implants.
A dental implant, which is a small metal post, mimics the roots of teeth and is designed to support everything from a single tooth dental crown to multiple teeth. This surgical procedure involves placing a metal post into the jawbone where it will naturally integrate to become a permanent foundation that will support and hold a false tooth or other dental restoration.
There are many benefits that dental implants can offer you:
- Dental implants look and feel just like a real tooth so most people won't know the difference.
- Unlike dentures, dental implants actually fuse together with the jawbone so you don’t have to worry about them slipping around in your mouth. This also means that you can enjoy eating all your favorite foods without the problems of traditional dentures.
- Implant restorations are made from titanium, so not only are they biocompatible but they are also durable.
- Getting implants can prevent teeth from shifting out of place, jawbone deterioration and facial structure changes. In fact, implants can actually stimulate the growth of new bone cells to help maintain a healthy jawbone.
If you are missing one or more permanent teeth and are in good health, then you could be a good candidate for dental implants. Implant treatment can take several months and even up to a year to complete, but what you’ll gain is a full smile that will truly last. If you are committed to maintaining good oral hygiene then dental implants could be a great option for you.
