Dr. Shane Ellsworth and our team can replace the teeth missing in your smile through implant dentistry. Dental implants are stable, modern restorations that consist of artificial tooth roots that are topped with natural-looking crowns. You don’t need to be embarrassed about missing teeth when you come to Evans Street Dental for dental implants in McMinnville, Oregon.

Dental implants are a solution for replacing missing teeth. They are made to give you the strength, stability, and resilience of your natural teeth. They serve as substitutes for both the root and the tooth, lending functionality and support to your jawbone. Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, a few teeth, or a full arch of teeth. Based on your individual needs and desires, Dr. Shane Ellsworth may recommend:

  • A single implant to support a dental crown
  • One or multiple implants to support a dental bridge
  • Multiple implants (typically 4-6) to stabilize a denture

If you have been wearing ill-fitting dentures, we may suggest using dental implants to support and stabilize your dentures. This can offer enhanced stability and an improved fit, helping to minimize slipping and giving your dentures a more natural, comfortable feel.

Unfortunately, sometimes an implant may fracture, become damaged, or otherwise deteriorate. This can be due to a number of different conditions and accidents. We understand that this can be troublesome and difficult to deal with.

That is why in our practice, we have implemented the ability to correct and restore old restorations, including implants. We will take these old restorations and re-create them to bring your mouth and teeth back to full functionality. There is no need to persist with broken or old restorations and implants. We can fix your implants and make them stronger and more durable than ever. Call Dr. Ellsworth today to see if you can benefit from dental implants.
