Your oral health is closely connected to your overall health and wellbeing. Having functional teeth allows you to eat, speak, swallow and smile naturally and with confidence. Without the ability to perform these daily actions, your quality of life drops significantly. For this reason, Dr. Kaveendra Ranasinghe and Dr. Kirk Christianson provide dental implants in Portland, Oregon, to replace your damaged and missing teeth. To learn more about the benefits of dental implants and schedule an appointment with one of our experienced dentists, call Downtown Dental Care today at 503-228-4122.
While there are several options available for replacing your teeth, dental implants are by far the preferred option. Unlike other replacement options, implants replace your entire tooth, including your tooth root. This means that the implant looks, feels and functions exactly like your original tooth. The implant post works to stimulate your supporting jawbone in the same way that your tooth root does, ensuring a stable foundation for your new tooth or teeth. This stability means that your implant can last for a lifetime, provided that you continue to brush and floss daily and receive preventive care from our dentists and team.
While the process of receiving an implant is more extensive and costly than other options, it is by far the best long-term option for your oral health and smile and will provide you with a better quality of life in the future than a denture or bridge. Best of all, nearly everyone can receive an implant. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy, you should not have any difficulty receiving a dental implant.
