Dental implants in Hillsboro, OR, are replacement tooth roots that provide a foundation for fixed, permanent teeth that look and feel like natural teeth. They are a great option for patients who have lost a tooth for any reason. Even patients who still have some of their natural teeth can benefit from implants, as they can help support remaining teeth and prevent the bone loss that’s common after tooth loss.
The dental implant procedure consists of two phases—placement of the implant post and attachment of a crown or bridge to the implant. First, the dental implant is placed into the jawbone. Most patients are able to return to work the next day following the placement procedure. After about three months, the implant and post have fused with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. Once this has happened, you’ll return to our office to begin the second phase of treatment. The dentist in Hillsboro will attach your new crown or bridge to your newly cemented dental implant. Dental implants in Hillsboro, OR, are virtually indistinguishable from your real teeth – even up close! You’ll leave our office with a complete smile that looks healthy and natural.
Dental implants in Hillsboro, OR, are durable, strong, and long-lasting. As long as you practice excellent oral hygiene habits, including brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing daily, your dental implants will last you for a lifetime.
