Permanent restoration of the smile after tooth loss may seem like an unlikely option. Luckily, patients in the community of Sherwood, OR who are interested in quality repair may want to consider the benefits of placing and restoring dental implants.
What are dental implants?
Drs. Nathan Doyel, Ben Aanderud, and Ashley Bennett are dentists who highly recommend dental implants for patients seeking permanent repair of the smile. Dental implants are best described as tooth root replacements. These nail-like restorations are incredibly small, but act as a natural tooth root once did. It is placed during oral surgery directly into the bone of the jaw and is restored on the top with an abutment. Depending on the patient’s needs, the dental implant may be repaired with a crown, bridge, or denture.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
There are many advantages to using dental implants within the smile. The dentists at New Smiles Dental may encourage patients to consider dental implants because they provide permanency. They are not removable, and often last a lifetime when patients comply with proper oral health habits and maintenance. The dental implants are versatile, replacing one or more teeth within the smile depending on how they are utilized.
Who is a candidate?
Before moving forward with the placement of dental implants, patients must be approved as a candidate. The most appropriate candidates for dental implants are patients who have enough bone to fully support the restoration. Bone loss can cause the dental implant to fall out, causing it to be unsuccessful in the long-run.
