At times, a dental implant may be the best option for restoring your mouth to its ideal appearance, function, and comfort. Our talented dentist is concerned with providing you the most enjoyable dental experience possible, regardless of the necessary procedure. If you decide a dental implant in Bend, Oregon, is right for you, Dr. Thomas E. Wold will carefully follow the three following steps to restore your smile:
- First, after administering an anesthetic and thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing any rot in the problem area, he will carefully insert a titanium screw.
- Second, after the screw has been inserted, an abutment—a small attachment that rests in top of the screw—will be inserted.
- Finally, our dentist will recommend a restoration to complete your implant. Depending on your particular, personal needs, our team may recommend a dental crown, a dental bridge, a complete denture, or a partial denture to complete your restoration.
With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Our friendly, personal team will be happy to offer you advice on how to make your implant a permanent solution. If you have any questions about dental implants at Dr Thomas E. WOLD Dentistry, we invite you to contact us today to schedule your appointment. We look forward to caring for your smile.
