If your mouth has one or more missing teeth, don’t despair. Dental implants have made one of the biggest advancements in history in the last 40 years to restore the smiles of people like you. At Tree City Family Dental, Dr. Connaughton will gladly grant you with a dental implant in three steps:

Step 1. Preparation: Dr. [dentist_name] will surgically place a titanium screw into your jawbone to replace the tooth root. This biochemical post ensures your dental restoration will be stable.

Step 2. Recovery: It may seem strange to have a healing period in the middle of the process, but most patients require a few months to allow the bone to bond with the biochemical post. This period is known as osseointegration. During this time, Dr. [dentist_name] may recommend a diet of soft foods.

Step 3. Fitting the implant: When you return after the healing period, Dr. [dentist_name] will place a dental implant restoration on top of the implant post. Depending on your personal needs, the implant restoration may be a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture. Whatever the dental implant restoration, it will be custom made to provide an aesthetic and comfortable fit.

Instead of worrying about the gap in your smile, we encourage you to consider a dental implant in Boise, Idaho. Contact Tree City Family Dental today at 208-286-2699 and find out if you qualify for a dental implant. Dr. Connaughton is happy to sit down with you to discuss your dental future.
