Tooth Implant Dentistry in Salem OR
If you want to regain your functional and attractive smile after tooth loss, you may be considering implant dentistry. Here are a few things you should know about dental implants:
- Dental implants are quickly becoming as successful as most dental procedures with a success rate of over 95% and longevity similar to natural teeth.
- The total tooth implant procedure will take less than an hour.
- Some dental implants can be immediately restored with a crown that can look and feel like a natural crown.
- Dental implants can be used to replace a missing tooth, support fixed bridges, offer retention and support to partial dentures and full dentures.
- Placing a tooth implant is less traumatic than extracting a tooth. There is little or no bleeding and the post-operative pain usually subsides before you go to sleep that night. A prescription for pain will be provided just in case it is needed. If it is determined that an antibiotic is necessary a prescription will be provided.
- Local anesthetic is all that is needed to provide a pain free tooth implant procedure, but a sedative (such as valium (halcyon) or Nitrous Oxide N20 (laughing gas)) can be provided.
