Are you missing one or more teeth? Our gentle dentist at Northwest Dental Arts & Sleep Therapy may recommend dental implants in Keizer, Oregon to replace your missing teeth and restore your smile. Dental implants are used to permanently replace your missing teeth. The titanium implant is surgically placed in the jawbone, replacing the missing tooth root. Because the dental implant is actually implanted into the bone, it is a very secure, stable tooth replacement. After a period of healing, Dr. Jennifer B. Frankel will place the dental implant restoration, which replaces the crown of the missing tooth. Your dental implant restoration may be a:
• Full denture or partial denture
• Dental bridge
• Dental crown
The type of dental restoration used depends on how many teeth are missing and on your personal preferences. When complete, the dental implant will look, feel, and function just like your natural tooth. If you properly care for your dental implant through daily brushing and flossing, as well as routine visits to our dental office, the implant can last for a lifetime.
