Dental Implants

 A close up of a single dental implant and its components. Some people may still believe that the only way to get their smile back is by using traditional dentures. Nowadays, however, there are more alternatives to teeth replacement than just dentures. At Forest Grove Dental Studio we want to help give you the smile that you have always desired. Our dental team will do an examination to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants, which are now the most common form of teeth replacement. Dental implants will transform your smile both in aesthetics and function.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are devices made of titanium that are placed into the jawbone of those with missing teeth. Dental implants function like natural teeth. Dental implants provide stimulation to the jawbone which offers support for these new prosthetics. The implant replicates a tooth from the root to the crown. The dental implant is surgically inserted or placed on the jawbone. The bone heals and continues to grow around the implant. This means that the implant becomes a permanent part of the mouth and attaches itself to the jawbone.

Dental implants can be used if you have lost teeth due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, or for various other reasons. If you have lost bone mass, we may first recommend a bone grafting procedure to restore lost jawbone before performing dental implant surgery.

Am I Too Old To Get Dental Implants?

There is no age requirement or cut off to receive dental implants. On the contrary, the only age restriction for dental implants is for those who do not yet have a fully formed jaw - kids or young adults. Some older patients may have the wrong perception when it comes to dental implants. They sometimes believe that the procedures involved to get dental implants is not for older adults. Previous research by dentists, however, has determined that dental implants are just as effective, regardless of age. You should therefore not feel anxious about your visit to our clinic. You do not have to put up with a poor fitting denture that you have to remove every night and can become loose while you are eating or talking. You can visit us to get dental implant treatment.

If you have receding gums, you can have a bone graft procedure, which will increase your bone tissue in order to support your dental implants. This procedure will require some recovery time before your dental implant surgery. Dental implants are a safe and effective treatment solution for missing teeth in patients of any adult age.

Why You Should Invest In Dental Implants?

Dental implants integrate with your jawbone and in the process protect your jawbone from deterioration. You will enjoy more chewing power, a brighter and fuller smile, as well as the knowledge that your implants are secure and permanent, and cannot become loose or fall out while eating or talking.
