Oral Surgeon West Linn, OR
At Oral Solutions NW we offer several implant-related treatments to replace one or more missing teeth. We specialize in implant treatment because we believe that dental implants are the ideal solution for tooth loss.
Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth. This makes implants a more convenient, durable, secure, and aesthetically pleasing option over traditional restorations. The numerous benefits of dental implants have made them the industry standard for tooth replacement!
An implant-supported denture is similar to All-on-4 but usually requires more implants. We may recommend an implant-supported denture if you want a better alternative to traditional dentures. A traditional denture is a removable appliance that rests on the gums. Because it is not secured by implants, many patients experience difficulty eating, discomfort, and even embarrassing slips.
If you are in good oral and overall health, you should qualify for implant treatment. If you have experienced significant bone deterioration due to tooth loss, you may need a bone graft first. During your consultation, Dr. Jeffrey Crowley will be able to determine if implants are right for you. This usually involves a series of diagnostic tests that may include digital x-rays and CBCT scans.
We believe patient education is the cornerstone of good oral health. During your initial appointment, Dr. Jeffrey Crowley will be happy to answer any questions you have regarding dental implants. This is also an excellent opportunity for you to voice any concerns. Staying informed can help you better maintain your restoration and prevent potential problems.
Many patients need a bone graft, or ridge augmentation before implantation is possible. Osseointegration, the process responsible for the many benefits of dental implants, requires an adequate amount of bone in the jaw. If osseointegration does not occur, implant failure is virtually guaranteed. Fortunately, we offer ridge augmentation to improve the quantity and quality of deteriorated bone. In many ways, ride augmentation allows patients to receive dental implants when it would otherwise be impossible.
