What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a great way to replace one or more missing teeth. A surgical treatment, dental implants are designed to look, feel and function like your natural teeth. Dr. Dustin Wilde provides high-quality dental implants in Anchorage, Alaska, to help restore your ability to chew and eat and to boost your confidence. At Advanced Family Dental Care, our dentist will work closely with you to determine whether dental implants are the best option for your smile. If dental implants are for you, our caring dentist and dental team will carefully walk you through each step of the treatment process and make sure you are as comfortable as possible.

How Will the Implant Be Placed?

To place a dental implant, we will:

  • Surgically implant a small metal post, normally made of titanium, into your jawbone
  • Allow your gums to heal as the post fuses to your bone tissues for superior strength
  • Attach an abutment (a connector) to the metal post
  • Finish the implant with a beautiful dental restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or denture
