You lost a tooth. Now what? They stick a post in the spot and slap a tooth on top of it, right? Well, not quite. Let’s talk about the important parts of getting a dental implant that every patient should consider.

“Bad to the Bone”

When you lose a tooth is that all you lose? Sadly the answer is “No”. Once a tooth is removed, the bone around the missing tooth is also damaged and lost. Every time.  Big infection present?  -lots of bone loss. Hard extraction? –lots of bone loss. 

The tooth being present stimulates the jaw and keeps the bone healthy. For every year the tooth is missing an alarming amount ...

Bone Loss & Implants

What to do with implant based tooth replacement: 

Don't wait! In implant based tooth replacement this can work against the process. Once a tooth is lost, the clock starts ticking. We have a limited amount of time to place the implant before enough bone is lost that an implant is no longer an option.

Our bodies are amazing units. They heal and adapt to stress, racing resources along to build up areas that need help. The immune system ramps up when an invader is detected. Our adrenal glands start pumping out epinephrine when a dangerous or intense situation is detected by our brain.  But along with those comes some negative.

Dental Implant Advantage #1

Improved Chewing Function:

Dental Implants have a huge advantage over dentures. One of the biggest is the amount of force that can be generated. While healthy teeth are able to produce about 500 pounds of biting pressure per square inch, dentures are only able to produce about 20-30% of that force. A significant reduction in the things that can be eaten results in everyday choices about food based on, “Can I chew that?”

Patients who have dentures, as a group, consume foods that are higher in carbohydrates and processed (easier to chew) foods. This contributes to poorer diets and increases risk for diabetes, and other problems. Not to mention the ...

Dental Implant Training

Dental Implant training is an interesting topic. We all want the best-qualified practitioner providing our treatment. So, how do you find out if your dentist has appropriate training?

However, there is NO SPECIALTY FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS.

Dental Implants in Boise Idaho

Dental Implants | Boise ID Dentist

My Grandfather passed away last week. He was 101 years old, born well before the advent of Dental Implants. He was an amazing man who taught me many things, told me many stories, and was a great example of how to live a kind and humble existence. He told me many many stories about his youth. Many stories were about the Indians, the Spanish Flu pandemic, and the Great Depression. Some of those stories were about going to the dentist and what it was like 100 years ago. Stories about no anesthetic, no x-rays, and no gloves. He did not like going to the dentist when he was ...

Large decay, fractured root, infection; all bad news. Any one of these may result in the loss of a tooth. Now what? Luckily there are several options for replacement of your tooth.

Your Boise dentist may recommend a dental implant as the best option for several reasons:

  • A Dental Implant is the only option that will preserve the jaw bone health after extraction.
  • A Dental Implant is a “stand-alone” tooth replacement, keeping a one-tooth problem son-tooth problem.
  • A Dental Implant can’t get a cavity and is a life-long solution.

You can brush it, floss it, and is not removable. As close as you can get to having your tooth back! Ask ...
