Dr. Jason M. Peterson recognizes that losing a tooth can have a serious impact on your life. Whether you feel embarrassed to open your mouth or you find eating and chewing difficult, we do not want any of our patients to go without a fully functional smile. To replace missing teeth, we are excited to offer dental implants in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Dental implants are a great option for our patients looking for a permanent solution, because they are designed to look, feel, and function just like a healthy, natural tooth would.
While receiving dental implants includes a surgical process, the dental implants themselves are small metal posts that are used to replace your tooth roots. Surgically implanted into your jawbone, dental implants provide a strong and stable foundation for your new smile. Once your gums have healed and the dental implants fuse with your jawbone, we will place an abutment on top of the posts, which will hold your new tooth. Your new tooth is generally a crown, bridge, or denture. We often work with your general dentist to coordinate the placement and restoration of the dental implant.
We love helping our patients find joy in their smile again. There are many advantages to dental implants and we are excited to share them with you. If you are interested in transforming your smile with dental implants, we invite you to contact us for more information. We hope to hear from you soon!
