Dental Implants

Missing or Broken Teeth? Problems with your dentures? Does that relate to you?

Whether you have one tooth missing, several or a complete set, Dr Brown and the team at Timberline Dental are passionate about restoring not only the teeth of our patients, but their self-confidence too!

When you lose teeth, the bone in your jaw that supported them starts to shrink. The sockets recede, and over time the bone gets smaller and smaller. For many people, this results in a sunken-faced look that could easily have been avoided.

Not only does the bone shrink, but as that process continues, it can result in the shifting of your teeth, leading to a domino effect of tooth loss. While dental restorations like bridges can slow the shifting of teeth, they don’t prevent bone loss and eventually can still result in the same troubles.

Dental implants are able to stop bone loss by replacing the lost roots of your teeth. This means that the bone won’t shrink, and you’ll be saving the rest of your teeth as well! By providing a lasting, positive result, dental implants can improve your self-esteem and confidence in your smile and your oral health.

    What Is A Dental Implant?

    Dental implants are small titanium screws that are about the size of the roots of your natural teeth. The dental implant is placed in your jaw and fills the role of your missing root. Implants are threaded on the inside and outside, so once your implant is placed, we are able to finish it with a variety of dental restorations.

    Dental implants act a lot like any other permanent surgical material – they integrate with your bone to create an incredibly strong and permanent bond. Just like screws used in other surgeries, titanium is the material of choice due to its excellent ability to integrate with bone.

    Who Is A Good Candidate For Dental Implants?

    Dental implants are a good option for anyone in good health. In order to place the implant, you must have healthy gums and enough bone below the implant to support it. If either of these are an issue for you, there is a way to treat either of these conditions first before placing an implant.

    Does Dental Implant Treatment Hurt?

    Many do not experience any pain at all throughout the process. Most people are able to work the next day after each step in the treatment process. If you do experience pain, we are happy to provide adequate pain medication. We are also available for quick follow-up appointments if you’re feeling any unexpected discomfort during the recovery process. We want you to be as comfortable as possible!

    One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is that, in most cases, they prevent future pain and complications. Dental implants are a permanent solution that allow you to turn back the clock on your teeth. They’re just like having your real, healthy teeth back.

    Dental Implant Cost
