Tooth loss can significantly affect your quality of life and cause difficulties with daily activities such as eating and talking. Although modern dental restorations have resulted in a significant reduction in the number of teeth extracted each year, many people still have one or more natural teeth lost in their mouths.
It is estimated that around 70% of persons between the ages of 35 and 44 have lost at least one of their natural teeth. If you are one of them and are looking for options to replace missing teeth permanently and for life, dental implants should be your first choice!
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant in Portland is a device that is embedded in the jawbone and replaces natural teeth by using prostheses such as crowns or prostheses that can be removed or repaired. After insertion of a dental implant, bone formation is formed near the implant, which leads to strong fixation and stability of the denture.
How do dental implants work?
The success and endurance of excellent dental implants depend on their ability to make direct contact with the surrounding jawbone. This process is called osseointegration and ensures that each prosthesis placed on the implant remains intact and remains stable, thereby restoring optimal function of dentures.
