Living with a missing tooth is not only frustrating when you want to enjoy the foods you love, but it is also a blow to your confidence when you don't feel comfortable smiling or interacting with other people the way you would like to. Dental implants in Yamhill County offer a permanent solution that not only restores your smile and confidence but also protects your oral health.

#1: Dental Implants Restore Both Your Tooth and Root

When your tooth root is lost, a few things begin to happen "behind the scenes." First, since your bone doesn't have a root to support, it stops regenerating, which means that it will begin to dissolve or deteriorate. While this may not seem like a big deal, it means loss of support for neighboring teeth and a more sunken appearance to your face that could age you before your time.

A dental implant replaces your root and promotes bone health and regeneration. It also restores your tooth, which keeps surrounding teeth in proper alignment.

#2: Dental Implants Can Replace Multiple Teeth

Patients who are missing more than one tooth can still enjoy the health benefits that dental implants offer. A few properly placed implants can hold dental prosthetics like dentures, partials, and bridges in place and provide a secure and stable fit.

#3: Dental Implants Are a Wise Long-Term Investment

For over 50 years, dentists have been utilizing dental implants to restore missing teeth, and over time, the procedure has proven to be very reliable with a 95 percent success rate. With consistent dental checkups and a commitment to your home care routine, implants also provide excellent longevity and can potentially last for decades and even a lifetime in some cases.

Covid-19 Update

We are doing our part and help get everyone through the current dilemma. We will be consolidating some of our clinics but otherwise continue to provide urgent and emergency dental care. We will be donating our extra supplies to local hospitals to help them in their effort to better care for those affected.

To also help, we are now expanding our hours in some of our clinics from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.  We hope these extended hours will not only better serve our patients but will help keep dental emergencies from overloading value space in emergency rooms.
