If you have missing teeth, it is important that you get a replacement tooth so that other teeth do not try to move into the open position left by the missing tooth. Many patients at our Johnson Creek Dental Group enjoy getting dental implants to replace missing teeth because dental implants look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. Our Johnson Creek Best dentist can provide you with dental implants which are well-placed and which will be fully functional for a lifetime.
At our office, you will be able to be seen by our Johnson Creek Best dentist; our two expert dentists are Dr. Shonna Jorgensen and Dr. Jonathon Melk. When you come to our dental practice wanting to get dental implants, our dentist will first assess the health of your jawbone to make sure that it is thick enough and healthy enough to heal from the oral surgery, and to securely hold the dental implant root. Once our dentist determines that you are a good candidate for the procedure, you will have one dental implant root surgically inserted into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. This dental implant root will also keep your jawbone healthy, as it will keep your jawbone from atrophying, thus helping to maintain your youthful appearance. There is then a waiting period of several months during which time your jawbone fully heals, and the dental implant root completely fuses to the jawbone. Our dentist will determine when the healing period is over. At that point, our dentist will permanently attach a porcelain crown to each dental implant root. Your dental implants will now be complete, and no one will be able to tell that you have them in your mouth. You will be able to smile and eat again in total confidence and in total comfort.
