Smile Confidently with Dental Implants in Bend, Oregon
Why get dental implants?
Losing one or more teeth in your mouth can have long-term negative effects on your oral health, which include:
- Bone loss in the area where the tooth was lost
- Orthodontic problems from the drifting of adjacent teeth, as well as gingivitis and periodontitis
- Reduced chewing efficiency
- Reduced esthetics
What are dental implants?
Implants are titanium anchors shaped like your original tooth root, which are permanently placed in your jaw and attach to a crown that replaces your original tooth. They are an ideal option for tooth replacement because they look, feel and function like your natural tooth.
It’s no surprise that there is a high demand for dental implants at our office. Our patients have found that this type of replacement tooth, anchored in the bone, significantly enhances their quality of life – not only in terms of appearance, but also in the health and function of their teeth.
At Select Care Dental, we conveniently keep the entire implant process in house, from the surgical placement of the implant to the final restoration and replacement of the missing tooth. If you would like to learn more about dental implants, please give us a call and set up a consultation with one of our highly skilled doctors.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are implants removable?
No, implants are permanent restorations that look and feel like natural teeth, and are not taken in and out of the mouth.
How long does the process of getting an implant take?
Depending on the condition and location of the implant site in the mouth, implants usually take 2-5 months from start to finish.
