What Are Dental Implants & Crowns?
Dental implants are artificial, root replacements that are surgically placed under the gum line. These implants naturally fuse to the jawbone and serve as a stable, artificial root of a tooth. At Prairie Skies Family Dentistry, we use cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to place implants more precisely. This type of technology produces 3D images and helps us better understand your teeth, jaw, and facial shape.
When your implants heal, we can cover them with dental crowns or bridges to fully restore missing teeth. Crowns cover individual teeth, while bridges cover areas where there are multiple missing adjacent teeth. In some cases, it’s possible to place dentures over implants for a more natural and secure fit compared to removable dentures.

Restore Your Natural Smile
Losing teeth can be a life-altering event that changes the way you eat, talk, and feel. But dental implants can also change your life for the better. With dental implants, you can restore your confidence and resume your normal life activities, like eating and talking, as you did before. After undergoing treatment, it’s essential for patients to take proper care of their teeth. Brushing, flossing, and having regular cleanings and checkups are integral to maintaining your results and overall oral health.
