Dental Implants in Salem, OR
Say goodbye to missing teeth forever
Get your smile back with dental implants
Missing teeth can happen to anyone. You may lose a tooth in a car accident or after falling off your bicycle. A bad cavity or gum disease might mean a tooth has to come out. Even your genetics and the natural aging process might make you more likely to lose a tooth, no matter how well you brush and floss. While preventive care and regular exams help keep your teeth healthy and happy, what can you do to restore your smile once a tooth is lost?
Lost teeth make it hard to eat, chew, and speak naturally. Many people say a missing tooth even adds years to your appearance. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The roots of your teeth strengthen the bones in your jaw. When your tooth is lost, bone tissue begins to erode, leading to a cavalcade of health and cosmetic issues.
5 reasons implants are better than dentures
- Prevent the sunken face look caused by bone loss
- Create a solid bite that allows you to eat your favorite foods
- Don’t require messy adhesives or cleaning solutions
- Can really last a lifetime with proper care
- Look just like natural teeth

What is the implant process like?
At Healthy Smiles Family Dental, we start with a consultation to assess your health and talk more about what you can expect from dental implants. After that, the process is completed over a few visits. First, we’ll place the implant and allow it to heal. Then the restoration will be designed and bonded in place.
While your tooth implant can last a lifetime, brushing, flossing, and regular checkups become more important than ever before. Gum disease is the #1 cause of complications and implant failure. Keep an eye out for tender gums and talk to your dentist to learn more about how to care for your tooth implant.
Dental implants are a permanent solution that allow you to improve your dental health and speak, eat, and smile with confidence. Your implant is made of:
- The implant itself
Made from titanium or zirconium, the implant takes the place of your tooth’s root. It actually makes the bone in your jaw grow back stronger than before.
- The abutment
The abutment is like the “foundation” of your implant. It provides a strong and stable base for the final restoration.
- The restoration
Usually a crown, denture, or dental bridge, the restoration is the final step in the process and is custom made to look just like your own teeth.
