Dental Implants and Dentures

Replacing missing teeth is no longer the daunting experience it once was. Advancements in dental technology provide Dr. Nathan G. Dustin with many minimally invasive options for providing you with attractive and stable new teeth.

We can help you with replacing teeth that are missing or need to be extracted, and we will work with you to determine the best solution for your specific needs, desires and budget.

One of the options we provide here at Columbia River Dentistry is dental implants.

Dental implants are artificial replacements for missing teeth. They can be used to replace a single tooth, and they can also be used to support several artificial teeth when multiple teeth to be replaced.

Dental implants are a great option because:

  • They provide long-term solutions: Dental implants can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared over time.
  • Be able to still eat your favorite foods: There’s nothing better than being able to eat whatever you want without having to worry. With dental implants, you can bite naturally and eat whatever you want.
  • Your teeth will be strong and stable: Dental implants act just like your natural teeth, therefore, they still look, fit and function the same way as your natural tooth.

At our offices we also offer an alternative, dentures.

Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. Like dental implants, dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth.

Dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile, and can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not change much.

Why should you consider dentures?

  • Aesthetics.
  • Improves overall eating performance if missing a lot of teeth.
  • Protects remaining teeth (if any) from excess wear.
  • Helps to support the facial and lip muscles to stop these from sinking in.
  • Cheapest way to replace many missing teeth.
