If you’ve been considering tooth replacement and have investigated your options, you have likely searched for “dental implants near me” on your phone or computer. You may have already learned that dental implants are the gold standard among tooth replacement options.

Dental implants are the only choice if you want to restore a missing tooth or teeth from the root to the crown. It’s true—no other option replaces your valuable tooth root. Your root stimulates your jawbone and may help prevent bone loss, which can give you an aged or asymmetrical appearance around your lower face.

Who Does Dental Implants Near Me?

Our dental office is centrally located, which means we provide dental implants in Boise, ID, and all surrounding locations. Additionally, we have treated countless satisfied patients in our area and other locales like Eagle and Meridian for more than thirty years. Our practice is independent, and we are always eager to meet new patients.

What Is the Dental Implant Process?

If dental implants are right for you, your dentist schedules your implant surgery. During this procedure, you will be relaxed, and the treatment area will be thoroughly numb. Your dentist surgically implants your new tooth root, and it fuses with your jawbone over months. When bonding is complete, we place your restoration tooth.

If you have more than one missing tooth, ask your dentist in Boise, ID about implant-supported restorations, including dentures. It typically takes only four to six implants to support this type of prosthetic.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

With regular dental exams and teeth cleanings, your dental implants can last for years or even for life.

And the good news is that dental implants do not require extra steps. In other words, brush, floss, and visit your dentist just as you did before you had dental implants!

To our valued patients, we wanted to communicate to you the efforts we have been making to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. Our highest priority is the health and well being of our patients, employees, and our community, and it is with these priorities in mind that we have created several new protocols. In addition to our standard disinfection and sterilization, we will be doing the following:
  • We are screening patients over the phone for symptoms or exposure, taking patients' temperatures, and having patients use hand sanitizer upon entering the office.
  • We will be scheduling extra time for each appointment for thorough office sanitation and to promote proper social distancing.
  • We ask that patients use a pre-procedural rinse which will eliminate a majority of bacteria and viruses prior to treatment.
  • All public areas will be disinfected routinely throughout the day, and all surfaces are treated daily with a 24hr treatment that eliminates bacteria and enveloped viruses (such as COVID-19)
  • The air in treatment and hygiene rooms is being filtered with HEPA air filtration units throughout the day.
  • We are limiting the use of the waiting room to ensure proper social distancing and patients are welcome to wait in their car if they are more comfortable doing so.
  • All treatment providers will be wearing masks when interacting with patients.

We will continue to monitor the situation and adapt as needed, and we hope to keep everyone healthy and safe through this trying period, and moving forward.
