Dental Implants in Bend, Oregon

Dental implants are artificial roots that support the placement of a manufactured tooth. These implants replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or larger prostheses such as dentures. Placing dental implants stabilizes bone levels, preventing bone loss and resulting in better long-term support, function, and aesthetics. Dental implants are a superior way to replace missing teeth since they don’t require the alteration of neighboring teeth. They are also an excellent way to stabilize a denture. At Drew Family Dentistry, we offer a wide range of affordable dental implants. Please don’t hesitate to call us to discuss which option might be best for you.

  • What is the procedure for dental implants?

    The first step in getting dental implants is to consult a dentist who will examine the site in your mouth where the implant is being considered. The dentist will need to assess if any neighboring teeth need to be removed and which type of bone graft needs to be conducted.

    After a few months of healing, the dental implant will be placed into the bone, and a healing cap will be put over the implant to begin the healing phase. Visiting the dentist every six months for a check-up is essential to ensure proper healing.

  • What types of dental implants exist?

    Dental implants are a standard dental procedure that involves the use of either endosteal or full-mouth implants. Endosteal implants are made of a titanium metal rod inserted into the jawbone and a post used to secure a dental crown or bridge. On the other hand, full-mouth implants use four to eight strategically placed implants to support an entire upper or lower denture. This system promotes faster patient recovery and reduces the risk of implant failure complications.

  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    Tooth loss can lead to difficulty in chewing and speaking, and if left untreated, it can cause several issues like tooth shifts, jawbone deterioration, facial structure, and bite imbalances. These problems usually develop over time when there is no root system to maintain bone health and alignment. Dental implants effectively treat tooth loss as they serve as an artificial root system to support a prosthetic tooth. They help overcome short-term challenges and prevent long-term problems linked to tooth loss.
