Dental Implants, Bridges, & Other Restorative Services in Portland
- Dental Implants: An implant is the longest term solution for a lost adult tooth. The implant mimics the natural tooth root by connecting the false tooth to a post beneath the gumline.
- Dental Bridges: Bridges are another solution for a missing tooth. Like implants they use a false tooth to fill in the gap. However a bridge is connected to the surrounding teeth via crowns instead of implanted into the gum line. Bridges can sometimes require maintenance after a few years since they are not as durable as implants.
- Dental Crowns: A dental crown is a synthetic cap placed on a tooth. They are often used after root canals or after a bridge is installed. A crown might also be used if the chewing surface of a tooth has decayed.
- Dental Fillings: When decay spreads to teh dentin of a tooth it is necessary to remove the decay and fill it in. Otherwise the decay could continue to spread until the tooth is irreversibly damaged. If you have a cavity we can fill it, or if you have an issue with a filling we can replace it.
