Dental Implants bring you as close to growing new teeth as possible. Expertly placed in the same bone that once supported teeth, you’ll enjoy the strength and function of a natural tooth. Modern porcelains produce a result so life-like, you may forget they aren’t your natural teeth. The stability and sense of confidence you develop with implants will leave you smiling.
If you are considering choosing a tooth implant to restore your smile, the first place to start is an evaluation with Dr. Hedstrom. He will perform a thorough examination and take x-rays of your teeth and jawbone to ensure that your bone can successfully support a dental implant.

Dental implant restorations are prosthetic teeth that are designed to attach to your implant, and restore your smile. For single-tooth implants, a dental crown is usually used. This crown functions just like a real tooth and is crafted to fit into your smile perfectly. In conjunction with the titanium implant, your new tooth will function just like your natural tooth did.
Single-tooth implants can be treated just like a natural tooth. Simply brush and floss your teeth normally, and your implant will remain healthy and strong for years to come. Dental implants typically last 30+ years with proper care.
A Multi-Tooth Implant Bridge is similar to a Single-Tooth Implant, but is used to replace a series of failing or missing teeth. Two dental implant screws are placed into the jaw bone and a series of strong, custom teeth bridge the gap.
Snap-In Dentures (also called Click-In Dentures or Overdentures) are a cost-effective alternative to traditional dentures that utilizes strategically placed implants for added retention. Snap-In Dentures are removable by the patient for easy cleaning, but offer superior stability when compared to conventional dentures. Dental implants can eliminate the need for the palate portion of top dentures (the part that covers the roof of the mouth), thus helping to reduce gagging sensations and diminished ability to taste food. Snap-In Dentures can also make a loose lower denture more stable, keeping it from floating around in your mouth. Snap-In Dentures can help to increase your confidence, comfort, and function, thereby greatly increasing your quality of life.
Permanent, All-on-4 implants can help make your dentures more stable so you can function better and have increased confidence. Permanent-teeth-in-a-day uses 4-6 angled implants to place an entire arch of non-removable teeth in just one day!
Due to the advancements made in dental implant technology, permanent-teeth-in-a-day is more affordable than ever. And unlike many other teeth replacement options utilizing implants, with permanent teeth-in-a-day you leave that same day with fixed teeth.
