Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implant Restorations
Happy holidays Eugene! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of Eugene Family Dental. The holidays are a time to smile as you spend quality time with your friends and family. You can go sledding or have a snowball fight. But if you’re missing a tooth, you may feel embarrassed to smile. But luckily there’s a solution for missing teeth: dental implant restorations.
At Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR, we offer dental implant restorations because we believe they are the best method for replacing missing teeth. Countless patients come into our office with missing teeth. Some of them have lost teeth due to a poor oral health routine, but that’s far from the only reason you could lose a tooth.
Some patients have a genetic background which makes them more likely to lose teeth, so even with proper oral care they can lose a tooth. Teeth are also susceptible to being knocked-out during an accident or from trauma to your face. Although it can be frightening to think about tooth loss, many adults will have have to deal with it at some point in their life.
Dental implant restorations from Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR, are an effective way to replace missing teeth. A dental implant procedure can leave you with a whole, healthy, and happy smile. Dental implant restorations actually replace the root of your missing tooth, instead of attaching to your other teeth like a traditional dental bridge. By replacing the root, dental implant restorations are a stable and long-lasting solution for missing teeth.
Dental implant restorations are available for any number of missing teeth, from a single tooth to your entire set of teeth. During a dental implant procedure, a titanium rod the size of a natural tooth root is placed into your jaw. Once placed, the titanium rod will begin to integrate with your bone. This ensures a stable foundation for a restoration.
Dental implant restorations are an important way to prevent bone loss in your face and jaw. When you’re missing teeth, your existing teeth begin to loosen or even fall-out. Your jaw may also shrink because it does not need to accommodate as many teeth. If you’ve ever looked at long-time wearer of dentures without their dentures, you’ve seen the sunken face look caused by bone loss.
At Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR, we will refer you to an oral surgeon for your dental implant procedure. Once your implants are placed, they will begin to stabilize in your jawbone. Then we can provide you with amazingly lifelike restorations to place on your dental implant. A crown is used for a single missing tooth, but dental implants can also stabilize dental bridges and dentures.
At Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR, we offer crowns for single-tooth restorations. We offer both zirconium and e.max porcelain crowns. These crowns will look just like a natural tooth, but are also durable enough to last for decades. Once a crown has been placed on your dental implant, you can use your crown just like a real tooth!
If you’re missing several teeth, or even all of your teeth, you may be a candidate for an implant-supported bridge. At Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR, we offer all kinds of multi-implant solutions; we can even use dental implants to restore an entire argh of your teeth. Dental implant restorations are designed to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
If you have dentures, dental implant restorations can ensure a more stable fit. At Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR, we can modify your existing dentures to work as implant-supported or implant-retained dentures. These types of dental implant restorations use a ball and socket or bar and clasp to support your dentures. You just snap your dentures in place in the morning, and rest assured that they won’t slip or fall-out.
