Do you have a missing tooth or teeth in your smile? If so, Dr. Meredith McClay and our team at Creekside Family Dental understand how a missing tooth in your smile can affect your self-confidence. To restore a missing tooth, we offer dental implant restoration for our patients in Medford, Oregon. Dental implants have the ability to replace all of your teeth, several teeth or even just one, according to your needs.
Dental implants are securely planted in the jawbone to secure a tooth or teeth in place. This makes them secure, permanent replacements for missing teeth. Our dentist will place a titanium screw into your jawbone in the place where the missing tooth was located. This biocompatible screw acts as the tooth root by holding your implant in place securely.
During the healing process after the surgery, the jawbone fuses to the titanium screw. Once healing is complete and the implant is secure, our dentist will attach the tooth to the post. The type of dental restoration will depend on how many teeth are being replaced. This means you may receive custom-made complete or partial dentures, a bridge or crown. Our dentist will make sure that your implant is comfortable and pleasing so that it blends in with your smile.
Since caring for your implant is similar to caring for your teeth, and with good oral hygiene, it will last as long as your own chompers, or longer! At Creekside Family Dental in Medford, Oregon, we invite you to call 541-210-9661 to find out more about dental implant restoration, or to schedule your next visit with Dr. Meredith McClay . We look forward to helping you maintain a healthy, beautiful, confident smile.
