Dental Implants provide an excellent way to replace a missing tooth or teeth. The adjacent teeth are not modified or utilized in the restoration, as they would be when placing a fixed bridge or removable partial denture. The implant is a root replacement, which attaches into the bone of the jaw. A crown is then made to fit over the implant restoring the function and esthetics of a natural tooth. When there is adequate bone to receive the implant, our Boise dental implant procedure provides the longest lasting and “state of the art” way to replace missing teeth.
In situations where a patient does not have sufficient bone to receive the implant, a grafting procedure can often remedy the deficiency and allow an implant to be placed.
Dental Implants can also be used to stabilize loose dentures. Most people who have lower dentures struggle to keep them in place. Two or more conventional implants can allow a very loose denture to fit securely. When the bone has resorbed severely, mini implants can be placed to secure an otherwise unpleasant denture.
