Dental Implants. Whats all the Buzz?

Dental Implants have been around for a long time but only recently have they been so marketed to the public. Thats because research has shown us that a PROPERLY done dental implant is the best and most long lasting option for replacing a missing tooth or teeth. An implant is the closest thing to nature we can do in dentistry. We replace the missing root with a new titanium root and then attach a post and crown to it. It mimics the natural tooth unlike a bridge or denture. Here is a diagram showing what an implant is. It mimics a natural tooth in every way. At Aesthetic Smiles in Boise Idaho an implant is the treatment of choice to replace a missing tooth.
An implant is not suseptable to things like cavities, root canals, and other things that harm natural teeth. If properly cared for an Implant has the potential to last a lifetime, which makes it much more economical then other treatment options. Implants help preserve the jaw bone which over time atrophies when a tooth is removed. Implants can be used to hold a denture in place, replace a whole mouth of missing or problematic teeth, or just replace 1 missing tooth. The possibilites are endless with dental implants. They can also look very natural if done with proper care and attention. This smile has one of their front teeth as an implant. Can u tell which one? Probably not.
Make sure that the Dentist preforming the procedure is highly qualified and has lots of experience. Ask to see examples of their work. Implants are a very technique sensitive procedure that can have devastating failures if not done correctly. Much of our practice is fixing problems from past treatment done elsewhere. At Aesthetic Smiles we use 3D technology and computer guided surgery to ensure accurate placement. Aesthetic Smiles is a leader in the dental implant industry is the Boise Idaho area. Dental Implants are a routine procedure in our office and we take the time to ensure successful outcomes.
