Benefits of Dental Implants

Woman smiling and showing off her tooth replacement.If you have teeth problems and are at constant risk of tooth loss, or you have already lost teeth, visit Gresham Dental Excellence for an evaluation of your oral health. We do tooth extraction and provide replacement options, as well as restore lost teeth. Dental implants are one of the most recommended tooth replacement procedures, which our dentist will use to give you that marvelous smile you wish to have.

What Are Dental Implants?

Tooth implants comprise a metal screw and an artificial tooth crown. The metal post is fabricated of titanium or zirconia. The screw-like posts are inserted into the jawbone via a surgical process. The jawbone should have enough mass to provide a stable base for the implant. Where the bone is not enough, grafting will be done to increase its volume.

After the implant is implanted into the bone, it is left for some time to heal. During the healing, the implant bonds to the jawbone to imitate a natural tooth. A provision crown will be given during this time to cover the healing area. After it has healed completely, an abutment that will hold the crown is attached. The process is finalized by placing the artificial crown on the implant. Dental implants are a long-lasting solution to tooth loss and have many benefits, including:


The time implants last will depend on the care you give them. They can last between 20 to 30 years, or even a lifetime, with the right care. Caring for them is easy, as it is done just like you do with natural teeth. Brush and floss them daily for longer use and see a dentist frequently for checkups.

Help Retain Good Bone Health

Tooth loss will make the underlying bone start deteriorating. Teeth roots play an important role in maintaining the health of the jawbone. The chewing motion stimulates bone growth. With the implants in place, the stimulation on the jawbone is just like the natural one received from teeth roots. This shows how implants prevent bone loss.

Give an Aesthetic Look

Since tooth implants prevent bone loss, they will improve the appearance of your face. Loss of bone will make your skin sag and cheeks will look like they are sunken. As a result, it causes changes in your facial appearance. To some point, your bite may even change. A strong jawbone will maintain your natural appearance.

Stabilize the Adjacent Tooth

Dental implants are fitted firmly into the jawbone, making the teeth next to them stable. Without the implants, the teeth may lean towards the gap left by tooth loss, resulting in misalignment.

Act Like Natural Teeth

Biting and chewing are a challenge with some other forms of teeth replacement like traditional dentures. In some cases, even words become difficult to pronounce, making you have a hard time when talking. With dental implants, you will eat and talk naturally.
