Renew Your Smile With Dental Implants

Dental implants from your dentist at Sleep Dentistry of Portland and Sleep Dentistry of Vancouver not only enhance the appearance and function of your smile but also offer a durable and natural-feeling alternative to traditional dentures or bridges.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that serve as artificial tooth roots. Titanium is a material known for its strength and compatibility with the human body. These roots are surgically placed into the jawbone, acting as a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. This innovative approach addresses both aesthetic concerns and functional needs, making dental implants a popular choice for tooth replacement.

The Placement Process

The journey to a renewed smile begins with a detailed consultation, ensuring you're a suitable candidate for implants. The actual placement involves several steps:

  • Preparation: The area is prepared, sometimes involving bone grafting if additional support is required.
  • Implant Placement: The titanium post is inserted into the jawbone, where it will fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration. This can take several months.
  • Abutment Placement: Once the implant bonds with the jawbone, an abutment, which holds the replacement tooth, is attached.
  • Crown Fitting: The final step is fitting the custom-made crown to match your natural teeth onto the abutment.

The Advantages of Dental Implants:

Implants mimic the look and function of natural teeth, blending seamlessly with your smile. By stimulating the jawbone, implants prevent the bone loss that often accompanies tooth loss. Unlike bridges, implants don't require altering adjacent teeth, preserving more of your natural tooth structure. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective long-term solution.

Dental implants represent a significant leap forward in restorative dentistry, offering a blend of aesthetic appeal, functionality, and health benefits. Contact us today to learn more about implants and restore the health and confidence of your smile.
