Dental Implants

Missoula Dentist | Dental Implants, missing tooth repair, damaged teeth repair | Ronald F. Rosser DDS

Dental implants are an extraordinary blend of science and art. They are like “turning the clock back” to get “new roots” to retain new teeth. They are ideal tooth restorations for people who are missing one or more teeth as a result of injury, periodontal disease or any other reason. A dental implant is a surgical grade titanium post that an endodontist, periodontist or oral surgeon surgically positions into the jaw. Once in place and the bone surrounding the implant has had time to integrate, a replacement tooth is attached to the post. While implants are typically more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, they provide superior benefits in esthetic and function. Dental Implants are exceptionally reliable and have very high success rates.

 

Single Tooth Implants

If you’re missing a tooth and want the very best dentistry has to offer, you could be the perfect candidate for a single tooth implant. Single Tooth implants are a more favorable approach than conventional bridgework because they do not depend on neighboring teeth for support. They are securely anchored into the jaw and topped with a crown for the very best in esthetics, feel and function. Considered the optimum way to replace a missing tooth they are the closest replacement for a “real tooth” making them easy to clean and to maintain healthy gum tissue.

Implant use with Dentures

Implants can improve the retention of complete dentures especially on the lower arch. When patients have minimal bone support, implants can help to prevent any further resorption of the bony ridge while helping to retain the dentures.  Patients appreciate the improved stability of their denture and benefits from better chewing capabilities.
