What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants can add health and happiness to your life. They provide a perfect foundation for realistic replacement teeth. Imagine being able to chew, speak, smile, and laugh without any hesitation.

Regaining a functional smile is possible with dental implants at Hillsboro Dental Excellence. The implants themselves are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone. The metal anchors act as root substitutes, and are restored with replacement teeth designed to complement your smile.

Dental implants will give you back your full and complete smile, while also preserving your facial structure and preventing bone deterioration.

The Surgical Component

The first step to getting your smile back is having the implants placed into the jawbone. We use advanced implant technology to place your implants accurately. After this first phase, the implants will gradually bond and fuse with the jawbone over a course of three to six months.
After the implant has become a part of the jawbone, the second phase will begin. Our reliable Hillsboro team will attach abutments to the implants, which will bind the dental implants to the restorations. We can place your customized restorations on top of your dental implants, giving you a smile that looks and feels real.

Our patients are generally very pleased with their dental implant procedure. We will provide you with the instructions and medications you need to remain comfortable during surgery and recovery.

Restoring your Dental Implants

How do we turn dental implants into natural-looking replacement teeth? We can use crowns, dentures, or bridges to rebuild your smile.
A dental crown is used to replace one missing tooth in an area, while a bridge can replace two or more teeth in a row. An overdenture can replace a full arch of missing or extracted teeth.
