In the unfortunate event of tooth loss or a tooth that must be extracted, thanks to modern dental technology, we now have the opportunity to replace that tooth with a dental implant. Dental implants are placed in the jaw to replace the missing tooth root. It then heals for four months before a porcelain crown is placed on top. In many cases the crown can be placed the same day the implant is placed into the jaw. Missing single or even multiple teeth can be replaced by dental implants, completely restoring your smile! Sedation dentistry is available for most dental implants Portland procedures.
