When a patient has a missing tooth, a slew of unexpected problems can follow suit, including shifting teeth and gum disease. Replacing a missing tooth effectively has also, historically, been somewhat difficult – until dental implants! Dr. Geelan offers dental implants at his downtown Portland dental office.
Dental implants are the most modern, most innovative method of replacing a missing tooth. Atop a medical-grade biocompatible titanium post, a replacement tooth made out of a special material can return full functionality to a patient’s dentition. These dental implants look, feel, and function like real teeth, requiring little more than standard maintenance (brushing, flossing, regular check-ups). Dr. Geelan has been performing dental implants in Portland since opening his practice.
Missing teeth aren’t the disaster they used to be. Patients who have a missing tooth can get it replaced with full functionality. In fact, patients with many missing teeth can get them all replaced with all-on-4 implant-supported dentures. As with any cosmetic procedure, every case is different. When I speak to a patient and learn what they want, we take every step with the goal in mind, and then it’s just a matter of time before we get there.
Come see why patients come from all over to visit Geelan Dental Care in Downtown Portland Oregon for Dental Implants!
