With advances in modern dentistry, there is now an effective permanent tooth replacement option that offers a long-term solution - dental implants. Whether it's one tooth or multiple teeth that need replacement, dental implants provide an effective and reliable alternative that will stand the test of time. At North Hills Implant & Oral Surgery, we specialize in providing the highest quality care when it comes to dental implant placement. Our highly skilled professionals, Eric Hoverstad, DDS and Ryan Milewski, DDS, are well-versed in various techniques that ensure your comfort and safety during every step of the process.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a small titanium post that replaces a tooth's root and is permanently inserted into the jawbone. The result of the process is an artificial tooth root which provides a strong foundation for a single crown or support for other dental restorations such as bridges or dentures. According to Eric Hoverstad, DDS, dental implants can greatly improve oral health by strengthening the jawbone and preventing adjacent teeth from shifting.

What is the Procedure of Dental Implant Placement?

At North Hills Implant & Oral Surgery, the process of dental implants begins with an examination. After that, the implant site will be prepared by our highly trained dentist, Eric Hoverstad, DDS, and the implant will be surgically placed into the jawbone. After the implant has been placed, the patient will be given time to heal. Once the implant fuses with the surrounding bone tissue, the patient will return to our office for a custom-made restoration, such as a crown or bridge, attached to the implant.

What Are Implant Supported Dentures?

Implant supported dentures are an effective and reliable option for replacing missing teeth. In this process, a dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone, with a post attached that securely holds an artificial denture in place. Patients who choose implant supported dentures benefit from improved facial appearance, giving the patient a fully restored smile. Implant supported dentures last longer than traditional dentures and require less maintenance, making them ideal for those seeking long-term solutions.

Benefits of Dental Implants

The benefits of dental implants include the following:
•  Dental implants look and feel realistic in comparison to dentures
•  They help preserve the facial structure as they don’t require the use of other teeth for support.
•  They are very durable and long-lasting when cared for properly.
•  Unlike dentures, dental implants don’t move around or cause irritation and discomfort when speaking or eating.
•  Unlike bridges and dentures, dental implants do not require multiple visits over time to be adjusted and replaced respectively.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Most patients report experiencing minimal pain or discomfort during and after the dental implant placement procedure, which is usually performed under local anesthesia.
