A dental implant offers an excellent solution for one or more missing teeth. Implants look like your natural teeth, feel secure and, most importantly, prevent bone loss in the affected area.
Dental Implants replace missing or problem teeth, leaving you with a natural-looking, beautiful smile that was designed to last a lifetime.
Modern dentistry’s main focus is to preserve a damaged tooth at all costs, however, tooth loss still happens as a result of decay, periodontal disease (gum disease), or injury. Filling the gaps left by these lost teeth were mostly reserved for bridges, partial dentures, or full dentures, now with new technology, dental implants can help to restore your smile. At our Idaho Falls dental implant office, our skilled dental technicians employ this method to improve the look and feel of our patients’ teeth, leaving you with a smile you’ll love showing off.
Dental implants are designed to function much like the roots of your natural teeth and can also serve as anchors for crowns, bridges, and full and partial dentures, depending on what your dental needs and goals are. Since these “root replacements” actually fuse with the jaw bone, the end result is a very solid and stable “root”. Not only do dental implants provide a strong base for a crown, bridge, partial dentures, etc., but dental implants are one of the only ways to prevent bone loss from occurring once the natural tooth root has been removed.
