Dental Implants in Hailey, ID
Complete & Permanent Smile Restoration
Dental implants are a complete and permanent smile restoration option for patients with missing or failing teeth. Dental implants provide long-lasting, natural-looking results, allowing patients to regain confidence and the ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Whether you require a dental implant to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire upper or lower arch, the surgeons at Whitewater Oral Surgery Group specialize in dental implant-based tooth restorations, such as full-arch restoration. They will work with you to customize a treatment solution that will restore your smile and improve your oral health.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Restore oral health
Restoring a missing tooth will help to prevent bone loss, bite alignment issues, dental shifting, bacteria buildup in the tooth socket, and more.
Dental implants are a long-term, permanent solution that can last a lifetime with proper care.
Enjoy restricted foods
Foods that are off-limits to patients with dentures or missing teeth can be eaten with dental implants. Patients can enjoy steak, corn on the cob, apples, nuts, and more.
Protect facial balance
Bone loss in the jaw causes facial sagging. Dental implants fuse with the existing bone, restoring facial aesthetics and improving oral health.
Types of Dental Implants in Hailey, ID
One missing or failing tooth is replaced with a single dental implant wherever it is needed in the mouth. This area can include the front teeth, canines, and even molars.
A traditional bridge requires neighboring teeth to be sanded down to support the prosthesis. Dental implants can be placed to support the bridge without altering healthy teeth that provide the jaw bone with stimulation and sustain its function.
Our oral surgeons can perform a tooth extraction and place a dental implant in one procedure. This requires enough existing jaw bone to support the implant. If you do not have enough jaw bone, we can place a bone graft to promote the growth of new bone.
A full-arch restoration is a life-changing procedure ideal for patients who are missing multiple or all of their teeth. Dental implants are secured to a fixed denture in one or both arches, creating a permanent and natural-looking new set of teeth.
Zirconia implants are an alternative option for patients with a metal allergy. Also known as ceramic implants, they provide the same function as traditional titanium dental implants and allow patients to experience the same long-lasting benefits of tooth restoration.
A zygomatic implant is used when a patient requires an implant in the upper dental arch. The bone that separates the maxillary sinus from the upper teeth can be very delicate, limiting its capacity to support a dental implant. A long implant post is inserted directly into the zygomatic bone, creating a stable foundation for the dental implant.
Dental Implant Cost and Value
During your consultation, you will be provided with a cost estimate of your restorative treatment. The type of implants you require, your insurance, your choice of anesthesia, and if you require additional procedures will all contribute to the complete cost.
With a high success rate and long-term results, patients can enjoy the natural look and feel of their replacement teeth. Investing in your oral health with dental implants can prevent costly treatments in the future.
The Dental Implant Surgical Procedure
During your initial visit, you will meet with one of our oral surgeons to discuss the dental implant surgical procedure, take 3D scans of your face, and explore your options for anesthesia. On the day of your surgery, your surgeon will make a small incision in the gum and position the implant post. Over the next few months, your implant post will fuse to the jaw bone. When your surgical site is healed, your restorative dentist will place the custom-made crown.
Types of Anesthesia
Whitewater Oral Surgery Group uses three main types of anesthesia:
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you get dental implants for your whole mouth?
If you are missing all of your teeth, a full-arch restoration can replace them. Dental implants will replace both lost or failing natural teeth and the tooth roots.
Who is not suitable for dental implants?
People with on certain medications or drugs that suppress the immune system may not be ideal candidates. People who severely grind or clench their teeth may put too much pressure on the implants, causing rejection or unsuccessful healing.
How painful is implant surgery?
Local anesthesia is injected to numb the nerves in and surrounding the surgical site. Your oral surgeon will ensure that you are comfortable and do not feel any pain during your procedure.
Do they put you to sleep to do dental implants?
Complete sedation is not required for a dental implant procedure, although some patients choose to rest comfortably during the procedure. Your anesthesia options will be discussed during your initial visit.
