Congratulations! With help from The Dentists at Orenco Station, you have rebuilt your healthy and beautiful smile with dental implants. You may know that your implants take the place of both the root and crown of a missing tooth. The implant portion is embedded in your jaw and the attached restoration—a porcelain crown, bridge, partial or full denture—is what shows. Properly cleaning your implant supported teeth replacements is just as important as cleaning your own natural teeth. If you have dental implants, Hillsboro dentists Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey have some advice on how to maintain optimal oral health with proper cleaning.

Missing teeth can be a real drag for your mouth. It just feels weird. If you do have missing teeth, you probably find yourself dragging your tongue through the open area where a tooth used to stand. A missing tooth is nothing new for our office. We’ve treated many patients who’ve dealt with missing teeth throughout their lives. We hear the same thing from our patients regarding missing teeth and how it keeps them from smiling. This is simply no way to live. Smiling, just like laughing, is highly contagious. We understand why anyone with missing teeth would want to hide their smile, but there are ways to bring that same smile to full beauty.
Dental implants are excellent choices for patients that are suffering with missing teeth. It isn’t just the appearance of your smile that is at risk, your oral health is, too. Open spaces can lure bacteria in and keep it there for a long time. The longer bacteria sticks around, the greater a chance of an infection. Our office in Hillsboro, OR offers dental implants for all patients that want to do something about their missing-tooth problem. It’s tooth replacement Hillsboro residents can receive for their missing teeth.

What’s In a Dental Implant?
Dental implants work by replacing your missing tooth and root. To do this, the implant must anchor itself in the bone of your jaw (osseo-integration). Dental implants are made of titanium, a trusted bio-compatible material. Osseo-integration is the biochemical fusion of your living bone cells with an oxide layer that forms on the surface of the titanium implant post.
Are Dental Implants Right For You?
Dental implants can be used to treat tooth loss for anyone missing one, multiple, or even an entire row of teeth due to injury, defect, disease, or dental decay. Dental implants patients can look forward to:

With summer knocking at your door, many people are doing everything they can to make sure they look their absolute best for the summer season. Whether it is buying the best food for the barbeque or going to the gym to get ready for the beach, many people are wanting to have as much fun and feel as confident inside and out as possible. If you have teeth missing from your smile, you may find it difficult to find confidence in the way you look. You are sure to reconnect with old friends and meet many new people this summer season, so making the best impression is important. Drs. Brandon and Malinda Kearbey understands the struggle his patients go through when they have teeth missing from their smile, and he is able to give them the smile they have always wanted using dental implants.
A dental implant is a small piece of biocompatible titanium that is placed directly into an empty tooth socket. The titanium post-like implant will act as a new tooth root, and will prevent the rest of the teeth in your mouth from shifting to make up for the empty spaces due to the missing teeth. The bone in your jaw and your gum tissue with bond with the implant over time, creating a strong, permanent bond. After the right amount of healing time as passed, a crown is added on top of your implant– a crown that exactly resembles a natural tooth. At the end of the procedure, you are left with a beautiful, full smile you can be proud of.
Dental implants can be used to anchor a dental crown to completely recreate a tooth, or to hold a fixed bridge permanently in place. Both solutions create a natural-looking row of teeth that you are ready and willing to show off at any given moment! So if you are ready for a beautiful, full smile just in time for summer, make an appointment with Drs. Kearbey, and they will be more than happy to help!
