What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a revolutionary, permanent way to replace missing teeth. If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants in Whitehall, Montana are an excellent choice for restoring your smile. Dental implants replace both the root and crown of the missing tooth, so your replacement teeth will look, function, and feel just like natural teeth.

How long does it take to get a dental implant?

The procedure for placing the actual dental implant is fairly quick, but the entire dental implant process can take a few months to complete. The dental implant, which is a post created from titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone. Dr. Dennis Sacry, your knowledgeable dentist, works closely with an implant specialist or periodontist during this phase of the treatment to ensure the best possible results for the placement of the implant. A healing period, which usually lasts a couple of months, is then allowed so the gums can heal. During this time, the jawbone begins to fuse with the dental implant, ensuring that your implant is secure and stable. Dr. Dennis Sacry will then place the dental implant restoration. Depending on your specific desires and needs, your implant restoration may be a dental bridge, crown, partial denture, or full denture.
