Have you lost one or many teeth that you wish to replace with a fixed, permanent option? If so, Dr. Tom Brooks offers implants in Gold Hill, Oregon, that does just that!
Dental implants are products that replace tooth roots and provide a strong foundation for your bite. They have the ability of improving appearance, speech, comfort, self-esteem, and oral health. Implants are also very durable and convenient options that make eating easier. The process involves your dentist inserting a small titanium post into the bone socket of the missing tooth. The jawbone will need time to heal around the post, which could take anywhere between six to twelve weeks. Once it has healed, a connector post is attached to the titanium post to hold the new tooth. Your dentist will then make impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab to be made for you. Once they are made, they will be installed in your mouth to give you the functionality you have wanted for so long.
This process is known to be nearly painless, but you might experience a little bit of soreness after the treatment is finished. This can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications. If you have any questions about the dental implants we offer at Tom Brooks DMD, call us now!
