Missing teeth can negatively impact your oral health, ability to eat, and your confidence, but dental implants from Village Dental in Wilsonville can restore your smile to its best health and appearance.
Dental implants can replace your missing, severely damaged, or decayed teeth for a permanent, durable, attractive, and fully functional smile.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are metal posts with a screw-like base that are implanted into your jaw bone, acting as the root. An artificial tooth, tinted, shaped, and sized to look like your natural teeth, is attached on top of the implant. A dental implant can be used to fill the gap from a missing tooth, or replace teeth that are damaged or decayed beyond repair.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implants improve your oral health by restoring the strength of your jaw. By filling the void from your missing tooth, a dental implant prevents bacteria from building up and leading to gum and tooth issues.
Dental implants also make eating, brushing, and flossing both easier and more comfortable. And because your ability to bite and chew foods is restored, you can consume nutritious foods like crunchy vegetables and nuts, improving your overall health.
At our Wilsonville office, we also make sure your dental implants look great and natural. Our dentists will customize your artificial tooth so it blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
How do I care for dental implants?
After your procedure at our Wilsonville office, you will likely experience some soreness. Your dentist can recommend a pain reliever to take, and you will want to eat soft foods for a few days as your implant heals.
Your dental care routine will remain the same with dental implants, with brushing, flossing, and regular examinations and professional cleanings at our Wilsonville office.
