welcome to the world as seen through my eyes

Portland Implant Center provides dental implants for missing teeth and dental implants for denture replacement in Portland, Salem, Vancouver, Lake Oswego and Beaverton areas.

Traditional dentures have existed for hundreds of years - George Washington probably had the most famous pair of dentures, made from cow and walrus teeth. While denture technology has certainly developed since those early days, the fact remains that many denture wearers frequently complain of discomfort, pain, slippage/movement, inability to eat desired foods and an overall drop in self-confidence.

Recently, Dental Implants have become the clear treatment of choice for those missing all of their teeth on one or both arches. Unlike traditional dentures, Dental Implant supported dentures are secured, so the need for denture adhesive is eliminated. Dental implant supported dentures also allow you to speak with ease and chew most foods without the risk of denture slippage; tasting the authentic flavor of the foods you eat. Finally, only dental implant supported dentures will support the structure of your jawbone, preserving it from the shrinkage of your jaw line that is often seen in long-term denture wearers.

Immediate, same-day teeth is a revolutionary concept that we have offered our patients for over a decade which essentially provides you with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in one single procedure. Through the use of high technology and a skillful touch, we can give you a reason to smile with more confidence in ONE VISIT. The fabrication of a prosthesis is completed prior to the surgery. The computer-guided implant surgery is often done in an arthroscopic fashion without requiring any tissue reflection. This benefits the patient with less post operative discomfort, less swelling and less bruising. Often, patients can resume their normal activities the next day.
The process starts with a CT scan of the patient's jawbone. This CT scan allows for the generation of a 3-D model of the jawbone, which can then be used along with a virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are more accurate implant placement, and less chair time for the patient at the office.

You are Never Without Teeth. The same day of the surgery, we can also provide you with temporary teeth to use immediately until your final teeth are ready.

YOUR NEW SMILE WITH TEETH-IN-A-DAY

Immediate Loading of Implants

Reason for Immediate Loading of Implants

When a space where a tooth should be is left empty, the gums, bone and tissues surrounding that space will shift, causing the space to partially close up and causing the surrounding teeth to change position. These changes can have adverse affects on several oral functions, including:

  1. The ability of the remaining teeth to function properly

  2. Teeth that move to fill the space are no longer seated properly and are more resistant to gum disease

  3. Your ability to properly chew your food

  4. Your ability to speak clearly

  5. Your ability to present a clean and well maintained appearance

In delayed dental implants procedures, the bone is prepared for the implant but then requires several weeks to heal before the two can be attached. With procedures that allow the immediate loading of implants, the bone heals after the tooth is in place, lessening healing time and office visits.

It is important to replace any missing teeth as soon as possible to avoid these problems. The immediate loading of implants procedures allows for the best possible solution to avoiding these types of problems and the need for dental work in the future. Contact your periodontist if you have any of these issues.

When you have a tooth that has become too damaged to function, or has been lost due to disease or injury, a replacement tooth is the best possible solution for your continued good oral health. The immediate loading of implants to replace one or more missing teeth provides you with a new tooth more quickly than other dental solutions.

Dental implants have been used for many years to replace one or several missing teeth. When one tooth is missing, a bridge is also a common treatment. With a bridge, a new tooth is attached to the natural teeth on either side by means of a support, or bridge that secures it between the other teeth.

Dental implants provide more stability than a bridge because the new tooth is secured in place by attaching it to the bone below. Immediate loading of implants provides you with a secure replacement more quickly.
