implantAre you missing one or more permanent teeth? If you would like to restore your smile, ask Dr. Damon T. Armstrong about dental implants in Blackfoot, Idaho. A dental implant is made up of a titanium implant post and a dental restoration. The implant post is surgically placed in the jaw, where it acts as replacement tooth roots. The dental restoration, which can be a dental crown, dental bridge, or dentures, is attached to the dental implant post. The dental restoration will match the shade of your natural teeth.

Dental implants have many advantages. They look and feel like your natural teeth, so they give back your beautiful smile. Dental implants are designed to fuse with your jawbone, so they become a permanent part of your smile. Dental implants are very durable and will last many years, or even a lifetime. Dental implants have many benefits over dentures. Dentures can slip in your mouth, making you slur when you speak. Dental implants restore your ability to speak properly. Sliding dentures can also make eating difficult. Because dental implants are a part of you, you can eat all of your favorite foods with ease. Since dental implants are a permanent part of your smile, they are more convenient than removable dentures.
