Expert Care from Idaho’s Top Maxillofacial and Oral Surgeons
Dental Implants can significantly improve your quality of life. Implant reconstruction may be an unplanned event after an injury, tooth fracture, or failed root canal. Many patients have had the ongoing difficulty and discomfort of poor-fitting or unattractive dentures, severe bone loss, facial wrinkles, and sunken lips. Whatever the circumstances, implant reconstruction and other aesthetic treatments can offer you a solution to restore your confidence with natural function and beauty.
An implant is a small titanium, artificial tooth root that is inserted into the jaw to replace a missing tooth. Once healing is complete, usually within 3-4 months, the implant provides a solid foundation for a dental crown, restored by your dentist. In some cases, a provisional (non-functional) temporary tooth can be placed at the same visit as the implant insertion.
