Teeth Implants Give You Something to Smile About

Implants are small posts that are usually made from medical-grade titanium. Dr. Reeh will use 3-D imaging so he can determine the precise location to place your implants. After a healing period during which the implants will chemically fuse with your jawbone, the implants will be ready for new replacement teeth.

If your jaw is weak or not thick enough to support implants, Dr. Reeh can perform a bone graft procedure to help. He will place bone material in your jaw, using bone from a donor source, your own bone, or synthetic bone. Over the next few months, new bone cells will grow, and soon your jaw will be strong enough for teeth implants.

If you have any cracked teeth that need removing, or if you need any remaining teeth extracted before getting your implants, Dr. Reeh can also do that right here. He has removed many teeth over his career, so you can count on him to do it quickly and comfortably. Talk to him to find out if you’re a good candidate to get your implants placed at the same time your teeth are removed.

There are several implant restoration options available once your implants are set in your jaw:

  • Single Implant-Crown Combination – To replace just one missing tooth, Dr. Reeh will place one implant in your jaw. Your dentist can then have a crown made that will be anchored to the implant.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges – Your new bridge will replace several missing teeth in a row, anchoring to at least two dental implants for support. You’ll have a complete smile again, and you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite foods comfortably.
  • Implant-Retained Dentures – Your dentures will be stabilized by a set of dental implants that Dr. Reeh places in your jaw. You won’t need to worry about these teeth slipping or popping out of your mouth and embarrassing you.

Dental implants in Stillwater will give you back your smile. Call River Valley Endodontics today at 651-370-9498 to schedule a consultation. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

How much do dental implants cost?

There is no way to give you an accurate price on your dental implants without first performing an exam and taking a set of digital images. There are many variables to consider, including how many implants you need, where they’re located, and the condition of your jawbone. After your initial exam, we can provide you with a cost for your implants.

What are dental implants made from?

Most of the time dental implants are made from medical-grade titanium, as this metal will fully integrate with your jawbone, creating a solid base for replacement teeth. Once your jaw has healed from the implant placement, the implant and bone will have become one. This is why titanium is so popular for dental implants.

Can dental implants cause health problems?

There are no known health problems that can be caused by dental implants. Modern implants have been around for many decades and are proven to be fantastic replacements for missing teeth with very minimal side effects. Your implants should last for many years, or even for the rest of your life, with no special care or problems.
