Dental Implants – Minnetonka Dental

If you’re in need of a solution for your missing tooth or missing teeth, dental implants may be a great solution. Minnetonka Dental offers dental implants that can provide your mouth with a strong foundation and our options are available in a permanent or a removable solution to replace missing teeth. This dental option is an alternative to bridges, partials and full dentures, if you’re a candidate.

Natural Looking & Feeling Dental Implants

Our technology allows for the most natural results, in an appearance aspect and actual function. Minnetonka Dental offers implants that look and feel like your natural teeth, they are custom fit to your mouth and securely rooted. No more uncomfortable dentures that don’t stay secure, no more slurred speech, the mess of getting them to stay or the embarrassment of being caught without your teeth in.

Care for your dental implants is just like caring for the rest of your natural teeth. Brushing, flossing and regular dental cleanings and preventative appointments twice yearly is recommended. A great positive about dental implants is that the surrounding teeth will not be affected by any means, there’s no need to reduce other teeth, like other procedures require. Access is easy because no teeth are covered up, so maintaining the rest of your natural teeth and overall oral health is just like before, just maybe with a little more diligent routine than before.

Dental Implant Process

Minnetonka Dental’s first step in the process of dental implants is a thorough evaluation. After determining you have adequate bone structure and discussing the ins and outs of living with dental implants our process can begin.

- Oral surgery is the first step, this process will consist of implanting a titanium post into the jawbone, for each missing tooth or for the complete new set of teeth that will anchor a bridge or denture. Doing this will create a solid foundation because your jawbone will then fuse to with the titanium post.

- After the implants are secure, then a permanent, handcrafted crown will be attached to each crown post. All of these additions will look like natural teeth and seamlessly blend in with your smile. They will also be as secure as a healthy, natural set of teeth and with proper care can last a lifetime.

Dental implants allow restored function, improved speech, less restricted diet and will give you the strong, new smile you’ve always envisioned. Call Minnetonka Dental at 952-474-7057 for a permanent solution and added confidence!
