Dental Implants

Missoula General Dentistry Implant Single Tooth/ Bridge /Dentures

 

The advantage of dental implants and their development over the past several years has significantly enhanced long-term treatment successes due to the ability to segment treatment throughout the dental arch and not depend on one "key" tooth to support a major dental reconstruction. For this reason the evolution of dental implants over the last decade has made dentistry more predictable in the long term as well as frequently eliminating the need for a removable prosthesis for tooth replacement.

The current system that we utilize is the Strauman dental implant system. These implants have several decades of research verifying  long-term strength, predictability and safety. Many companies have copied design features of this system but the patented coating, superior engineering and credibility of the company make this our system of choice. The bio compatibility yields tissue adaptation that results in remarkable aesthetics.

Dental implants involve placement of a titanium fixture as a root replacement in the jaw structure. These anchors can then be utilized in various ways:

 

Bone Grafting

Dental implants require a certain volume of bone to "live" in.  Bone grafting is a general term we use to describe procedures which either help maintain the bone volume present (site preservation), or add bone to an area which has become deficient (due to the normal resorption process which occurs in the body when a tooth has been removed), to allow successful placement and healing of a dental implant.  Click here to learn more about bone grafting.
