Oral Surgery Aloha OR

When patients have a dental extraction, one of the biggest concerns they have is how to best replace a missing tooth. If you suspect you need an extraction, we provide oral surgery services in our Aloha, OR dental office and can plan how to replace your missing tooth before we remove your tooth.

Our dentists not only effectively and efficiently, but also comfortably, so you never have to feel stress or anxiety regarding your treatment. We also provide a wide range of options to support a healthy, beautiful smile – even on the other side of dental extractions.

Here are some ways we recommend replacing missing teeth:

Fixed Dental Bridge

A fixed dental bridge is a reliable way to fill the gap in your smile. We will place porcelain crowns on the two healthy adjacent teeth to secure an artificial tooth in place. A dental bridge is a single unite restoration designed to match your natural teeth.

Dental Implant

A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in your jawbone. Titanium is a biocompatible metal that will not deteriorate due to the conditions within your body and will integrate with your bone over several months of healing.

Partial or Complete Dentures

If you are facing multiple or complete dental extractions, dentures offer an affordable option for many patients. We can even use a few dental implants to anchor your denture in p-lace, giving you additional stability and confidence.

Our dentists are here to help you find the solution that makes the most sense for you, your health goals, and your lifestyle. If you experience dental pain or suspect that you need an extraction, contact us right away. We will always try to save your tooth. When that is not possible, oral surgery in our Aloha, OR dental office will provide great results.
