Dental Implants

Dental implants make the perfect choice for patients needing to replace missing teeth. If you've lost a permanent tooth due to injury or dental decay, you know just how difficult a gap in a smile can make everything from eating and drinking to talking and laughing.

Implants are metal rods made from biocompatible metals that are surgically placed into a patient's jawbone. During your first treatment session, an implant will be placed in the areas of the mouth where the teeth need replacing. After giving the implants time to properly heal, the metal rod will fuse with your existing jaw bone structure. This will create an incredibly strong foundation for your new replacement tooth.

Following a second procedure where an abutment is placed on top of the implant, a final visit will enable Dr. Cardwell to place a dental crown that will look, function, and feel just like a natural tooth. When it comes to replacing a missing tooth, dental implants offer an ideal option for an affordable, long-term solution.

At Prime Dental Care, your choice for family and senior dentist in SE Portland, we offer implant restoration services for patients who have existing implants that need additional care.

Full and Partial Dentures

For patients missing some or all of their natural teeth, dentures offer an affordable and lasting solution for restoring their smile back to health. Partial dentures work to replace gaps in a patient's smile when missing multiple teeth. Gaps in a smile can contribute to future tooth loss. Teeth work together to maintain proper positioning in your mouth. When one or more teeth go missing, neighboring teeth can begin to shift to fill the gap in your smile. Without treatment, those teeth become more susceptible to dental decay and disease, which can lead to further permanent tooth loss.

Patients with no remaining teeth can receive full dentures to restore their ability to eat, drink, speak, and smile like normal. Both types of dentures look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth.

At Prime Dental Care, we understand the unique challenges that come with missing a significant number of natural teeth. As an experienced senior dentist in SE Portland, Dr. Cardwell works with patients to develop a treatment plan that will successfully restore their oral health.
