Boise, ID practice makes dental implant restoration a reality
A dental implant does something no other restorative dentistry technique can do. It replaces the root of a tooth as well as the crown. This preserves bone, helping to avoid a collapsed facial appearance, and contributing to optimal oral function. It’s a small wonder the implant has become the preferred method to replace a missing tooth. Dr. Sarah Enright is passionate about making dental implant restoration feasible for her patients in the Boise, ID area.
Much more than a “fake tooth”
Implant dentistry has changed the way we replace teeth. In a brief oral surgery, a tiny screw made of strong biocompatible material is precisely positioned in the jawbone. Over the course of several months, bone fuses with the implant, forming a solid base for a restoration.
Most often a single missing tooth is replaced in this manner, and the implant is topped with a porcelain crown. Implants can also be used to transition from a removable partial denture to a fixed prosthesis, called an implant-retained bridge. An entire arch of teeth can be anchored with as few as four implants, for an unbelievable level of stability.
Because the implant becomes part of your body (rather than sitting on top of gum tissue, as a bridge or denture), it provides natural stimulation that maintains bone mass. A dental implant restoration requires no special care. With good oral hygiene and a healthy lifestyle, your implant may last a lifetime.
