Dental Implants in Minot

What are dental implants?

Dental Implants Presentation

To provide you with a better understanding of dental implants, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to dental implants are discussed.

Dental Implants Presentation

A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown.

If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food). Both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw.

The difference is that the implant is made of titanium — the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints.

When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. To replace the tooth, the dentist first replaces the root with a small dental implant.

Time is allowed for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. A support post (abutment) is then placed on the implant and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the abutment. In many cases a temporary replacement tooth can be attached to the implant immediately after it is placed. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.

“Don’t be afraid to Smile.”

For years I’d felt like a part of my body was missing — because my teeth were. My dentist told me that dental implants would make me feel and look a lot better. OK, I said. Now, I’m thrilled. I can smile, eat anything, and enjoy a good laugh with my friends.

Surgical Advances in Dental Implants

Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Weisner is able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implant can be placed at the same time as the tooth extraction — further minimizing your number of surgical procedures.

Dental implant placement is a team effort between a periodontist and a restorative dentist. Dr. Weisner performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary. The restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.

Patient Review by Shari M

The Doctors: Michael Weisner and Marta Janion are very polite and courteous! Their work is excellent! I had an extraction and implant, Dr. Michael Weisner did and excellent job! I am very happy that he calls his patients after surgeries to check on them. Dr. Marta Janion fixed a crown last year and found the cracked tooth that I had. Hygienist Cheyenne always does a wonderful job cleaning my teeth. The Staff at the front desk and the doctors assistants are Wonderful!
