Choose the Implants Right for Your Smile

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that function much like your natural ones. Dr. Rasmussen will place these small titanium posts in your jaw. Once in place, your body will begin a process known as osseointegration. It means your implant will become an integrated part of your bone.

Before we proceed, we’ll ensure your mouth has the strength to support implants. Your dentist may suggest a procedure that prepares you for implants. For example, bone grafting replaces bone loss in your jaw to give your implants a stronger foundation. We’ll go over any necessary preparations ahead of time, including you in our entire treatment planning process.

Before you receive your restorations, your mouth will need time to heal. When you are ready, your dentist will plan your implant placement with computer-guided technology. It will ensure you have successful results.

We offer many implant options:

  • Implant-Supported Crown – You can replace a single tooth by pairing an implant with a crown. It will feel and function like a regular tooth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge – If you have one or several teeth missing in a row, we can replace them with a bridge anchored to dental implants. Unlike a traditional bridge, there’s no need to remove structure from healthy teeth for this treatment. 
  • Implant Dentures – You can pair your dentures with implants. They’ll remain secure in your mouth and give you a strong bite. You don’t have to worry about loose dentures.

If you are nervous, sedation is available to ease your anxiety. You can choose fast-acting laughing gas or IV sedation for the deepest level of calm. You can relax with a pillow and blanket throughout your appointment. We also have headphones and TVs available to block out the sights and sounds of our equipment.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Modern dental implants function as artificial roots for replacement teeth. Implants are anchored directly in your jawbone, like the roots of natural teeth are. Your jaw bonds to the implants to keep them securely in place. This provides a stable support system for crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implants also stimulate your jawbone, reducing your risk of bone loss, which is common after you lose teeth.

Do dental implants hurt?

Our patients usually experience only mild discomfort after getting their new implants. Your dentist will use local anesthesia to ensure your mouth is numb and you don’t feel any pain. Plus, we offer sedation to help you relax and eliminate any dental anxiety you may experience.

When should I get dental implants?

If you are missing any number of teeth, you owe it to yourself to consider getting implants. They are designed to function as artificial roots for your replacement teeth. Implants make crowns, bridges, and dentures more secure. They prevent bone loss by stimulating your jaw, and they restore your biting power so you can eat anything you want.
