Implants Are Perfect for Replacing Missing Teeth

For any patient who has lost a tooth, dental implants provide the superior solution to replace that tooth. This solution is more comfortable, more natural looking, and longer lasting than partial dentures. Dr. Fisher is trained and experienced to provide quality dental implant treatment in the Nampa, Idaho, community. With the proper care, your dental implants can provide a lifetime of wonderful benefits.

What does the Process Involve?

Dental implants are replacement teeth that are permanently embedded in your jaw. The process begins with x-rays and impressions to lay out a precise plan for your implants. The integrity of the bone structure in your jaw is diagnosed, and the precise placement of replacement teeth is considered.

After formulating a specific plan for you, a titanium rod is surgically embedded into your jawbone. There is then a healing process that lasts for 8-12 weeks in order to allow the titanium post to become fused to your natural jawbone. Once the dentist is confident that the implants are prepared, artificial teeth are attached to those implants in order to replace your missing teeth.

Your overall oral health and the beauty of your smile will be greatly enhanced by dental implants.

Surrounding Natural Teeth Are Strengthened by Implants

Of the several options available for replacing missing teeth, dental implants provide the greatest long term stability. The implants embedded directly into your jaw will maintain the integrity of your existing bone structure and also provide added strength for any natural teeth that still remain.

  • Implants also provide replacement teeth that look very natural and blend with existing teeth.
  • Implants provide stable replacement teeth by creating a new root for the tooth with the titanium rod.
  • Implants improve the health of remaining natural teeth and remaining bone tissue.

Your Overall Oral Health is Improved by Dental Implants

Since implants stabilize existing tooth structure, it provides better overall oral health.

  • Surrounding bone and gum tissue will be restored
  • The tooth root provided by the titanium rod will preserve and stimulate bone tissue and gum tissue
  • In time, your dental implant and your existing bone structure will fuse together and be fully integrated.
