Tooth loss for any reason is unfortunate, but the good news is that dentistry offers several solutions to get back your healthy smile. At Sunrise Dental of Eugene, Dr. Jiyung Kang is pleased to help his patients with all types of tooth replacement. These include dental bridges, dentures and partials, dental implants, and implant dentures.
Benefits of Choosing Dental Implants
Of all of these, dental implants are the only ones that replace an entire missing tooth and use an artificial tooth root to take the place of the real thing. There are numerous benefits to using implants, which is why they are the standard of care for missing teeth.
Dentures and bridges work well and continue to benefit many patients dealing with tooth loss; however, the drawback is that they only sit on the top of your gums. A dental implant is a titanium replacement root that Dr. Kang expertly places in your jawbone and can last a lifetime.
A Beautiful, Functional Smile
As the implant heals over several months, it starts to fuse with the bone and tissue around it. When healing is complete, the implant root is every bit as stable as the natural root was—possibly more so!
The next step is for our dental implant dentist in Eugene to add to an implant a crown for a single tooth and a bridge or partial denture for multiple tooth loss.
If you are missing all your upper teeth, lower teeth, or both, Dr. Kang can place several implants in your jaw, then design full dentures that snap onto them. The result is a full set of denture teeth that look natural and stay securely in place, no matter how hard you laugh or sneeze!
