What is a dental implant?

Many patients who have missing or broken teeth turn to dental implants as their treatment option of choice. As a complete tooth replacement solution, dental implants offer patients permanence, stability, durability, and more. Dr. James Jerman offers dental implants at his Greater Montana Oral & Dental Implant Surgery practice located in Kalispell, MT.

There are three parts of a dental implant: the post, the connecting abutment, and the crown. To place a dental implant, your oral surgeon will insert a post into the jaw bone. Over time the post, which is made of titanium, will fuse with the jaw bone to create the stable foundation that dental implants are known for. The placement procedure for a single implant can take as little as half an hour to complete; however, fusing the implant to the bone will take place over several weeks.

Dental implant FAQ

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Good news! Many patients are eligible to receive dental implants, even if they were not candidates to receive other tooth replacement options. For some patients, additional procedures may be a necessary part of their dental implant treatment plan, such as bone grafting.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Dental implants are easy to care for and can last a lifetime. Brush, floss, and visit your dentist for checkups on a regular basis.

How long is the recovery period?

On average, it takes between 3 and 6 months for a dental implant post to fuse with the jaw bone. Age, jaw bone health, lifestyle, and more will all influence how long and successful your healing and recovery period will be. Make sure to follow all pre- and post-operative guidelines as provided by your oral surgeon.

How much do dental implants cost in Kalispell, MT?

Your dental implants should be seen as an investment towards your oral health. As a complete tooth replacement solution that is permanent, secure, and can last a lifetime, dental implants tend to cost more upfront than other options for tooth replacement.

Are dental implants painful?

Some discomfort may be experienced after your surgical procedure. To keep you as comfortable as possible during your procedure, your oral surgeon will discuss anesthesia options with you and select an option during your consultation appointment.

Once the healing period is over, dental implants are intended to look, feel, and function just like natural teeth!
