A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that looks, feels and works like a natural tooth.
The actual dental implant material is usually titanium. A post is surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation. This is critical because the root replacement post helps prevent jaw bone deterioration that generally occurs after a tooth has been lost.
When the implant has integrated securely with the bone (it can take three to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (crown) is then attached.
The industry-leading dental implants available in the Bozeman and Belgrade area are extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of configurations. One dental implant can replace one missing tooth. A series of implants can replace more than one tooth or anchor a dental bridge. Bozeman denture wearers should know that tooth implants can also act as a sturdy base for partial or full dentures.
When calculating the cost of dental implants in Bozeman, it’s critical to compare them to other restorative options such as a dental bridge.
