You’ve lost a permanent tooth, now what?
Let’s face it, loosing a tooth is rarely fun. Whether deep-rooted decay has caused your tooth to become free, or an accidental fly ball to the mouth can knock out multiple teeth, adult tooth loss does happen. We have great news, after replacing your missing tooth with a dental implant, nobody will be able to tell you were ever missing a tooth at all.
Are dental implants my best option?
While we always want to do everything possible to preserve your natural teeth, sometimes a tooth is simply too far gone to save. When this occurs, the preferred method of restoring function and protecting surrounding teeth is with a dental implant. A successful implant will give you a natural-looking tooth and restore your brilliant, full smile.
How do I replace my missing teeth?
At Great Falls Dentistry, our process of replacing missing teeth begins with a consultation with Dr. Dahman to gauge your oral health and make sure you’re a good candidate for a dental implant or if another restoration option such as a bridge or denture might be preferable. During your visit, we’ll go over the pro’s and con’s of each option and answer any questions you have.
What to expect from your dental implant treatment.

- Placing the post in the jaw bone
- Allowing time for area to heal
- Setting a healing cap
- Inserting the crown
