Understanding Dental Implants

Dental Implants Generally, if you have lost teeth you are a candidate for dental implants.

Where and how implants are placed requires a thorough assessment of your overall mouth and jaw structure. This assessment will allow the team at Raleigh Park Dental Care in Beaverton to plan the best location and type of implant. Understanding how each implant will function in relation to the other teeth and your jaw is critical to the long term comfort and health of your implant.

Are Implants Right for Me?

Generally speaking, dental implants are designed for patients who have lost teeth, leaving gaps or open spaces in their smile. Through the professional dental implant services from Raleigh Park Dental Care these gaps can be filled and a patient’s natural smile can be restored or improved. The new implant will look, feel, and function much the same as the original tooth. To determine if you are a good candidate for a dental implant, we recommend a brief consultation with the profession dentists at Raleigh Park Dental Care. In this assessment, we’ll quickly evaluate your tooth structure and can make recommendations on the best course of dental implant treatment.

If you are a good candidate for a single tooth or multiple tooth replacement via dental implant, a second, more thorough evaluation of your jaw structure and oral health is required. This minimally invasive assessment will include x-rays to help identify the proper placement and size of your new dental implant.

Implant Supported Overdentures

An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture supported by and attached to implants in your jaw. A traditional denture rests on the gums and is not supported by or attached to implants.

An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn’t have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants.

Implant-supported dentures usually are made for the lower jaw because regular dentures tend to be less stable there. Usually, a regular denture made to fit an upper jaw is quite stable on its own and doesn’t need the extra support offered by implants. However, you can receive an implant-supported denture in either the upper or lower jaw.
