Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dr. Negru recommends dental implants as the optimal treatment for missing teeth. He inserts the dental implant into your jawbone and connects it to a small titanium rod, called an abutment, that holds your dental crown in place.

After the implant heals, it fuses with your jawbone and acts just like a natural tooth root. A dental implant is the only option that replaces both tooth and root, leaving you with an artificial tooth that looks, feels, and performs like the real thing.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants have several advantages over other options for tooth replacement, such as dentures or dental bridges.

Strength and Durability

Dental implants are permanent, the only tooth replacement option to offer this benefit. That also makes implants the most cost-effective long-term solution to missing teeth.

They’re the next best thing to your natural, healthy teeth. Since they’re rooted into your gums just like natural teeth, dental implants are strong and stable.


With implants, you can eat all your favorite foods without worrying about problems chewing or biting. Nor do you have to be concerned that they’ll slip while you’re speaking, as dentures can do. And finally, while you need to clean and care for your implants just like regular teeth, they’ll never get cavities.

How does a dentist use dental implants?

Ultimate Smile Dental Care conveniently takes care of all your dental implant needs under one roof. You won’t have to worry about scheduling multiple appointments with a general dentist and oral surgeon because Dr. Negru has the skills and advanced technology to complete your implant surgery from start to finish.

As a fellow with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Negru has already helped hundreds of patients around Beaverton, Oregon, light up their smiles with dental implants.

What should I expect from a dental implant procedure?

First, Dr. Negru examines your teeth to determine the best approach. He can use dental implants to replace a single tooth or many missing teeth.
