Dental Implants

Dental Implants Diagram | Salem ORUnlike dental bridges or dentures, dental implants require adequate time to complete. 

Most patients find that their results are well worth the wait and rave about their smiles.

Why choose dental implants?

Dental implants are the most stable and long-term solution to missing teeth because they integrate with your jawbone and become a functional and reliable part of your complete dental system. They are the most natural and lifelike way to replace missing teeth.

Opting for dental implants also improves your food options. You have no restrictions because your implants will not move or shift while you chew.

Do you qualify for dental implants?

A full evaluation will determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Most patients will qualify for implants even if they have bone loss. Additional treatments, such as bone grafting and sinus lifts make dental implant treatment possible.

In some cases, we can immediately restore a dental implant, but in most cases, allowing 3 to 4 months for your dental implant to fuse with your jawbone will improve the outcome.

To learn if dental implants are an option for you, and to receive an accurate timeline regarding your treatment, we welcome you to contact our Salem, OR dental office to book a dental implant consultation with Dr. Seth Huish.
