Portland's Leading Implant Dentist!
Are you missing some teeth? Have gaps in your smile? Thinking about getting dentures? Dental implants may be the answer, and Dr. Fred Thompson is the implant dentist Portland patients trust to give them the smile of their dreams.
A great implant dentist can restore both the form and the function of your original teeth. Teeth serve important purposes – they help us to eat properly, aid in digestion of food, and also give structure to our faces. If you’ve lost some of your teeth, you know how devastating that loss was to your smile.
Until implant dentists perfected the art and science of dental implants, your only option was dentures. Dentures were, of course, better than nothing – but they were hard to care for, often uncomfortable, usually less than perfect fitting, and left you open to embarrassing slippage. Dental implants have none of those problems – if you go to a qualified implant dentist. Portland implant patients know Dr. Thompson can help them regain the smile they used to have – or always wanted.
Dr. Thompson is the implant dentist Portland patients come to for natural-looking, strong, and fully-functional implants. Implants look and function like natural teeth. Your implant dentist will anchor them to your jaw, which means they are strong and long-lasting.
The process an implant dentist follows includes three steps:
- Jaw preparation
- Insertion of the dental implant anchor
- Crown preparation
Who makes a good candidate to see an implant dentist? Our Portland office sees patients who need one implant – or a complete set. We’ll carefully evaluate the density and strength of the bone in each missing tooth’s area to see whether dental implants are your best option.
If your implant dentist determines that implants are the best option for you, you’ll soon find yourself enjoying meals at the best restaurants in Portland – without fear of pain as you chew, or of having embarrassing denture problems as you eat. Never again will you have to pass on favorite foods because of your teeth.
Your dental implants will require regular brushing and flossing – just like your natural teeth, although the implants themselves cannot get cavities.
Patients in our implant dentist Portland office report a boost in their quality of life. They look and feel better, enjoy eating again – like they did with their original teeth. And they sure smile a lot more.
