Dental Implants

Dr. Welch and Dr. Schilt and their team at McKenzie River Dental provide dental implants customized to fit your needs. Dental implants take the place of roots that support crowns, bridges, and dentures. Made of titanium, dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone and act as an anchor for a crown or denture.

Dental implants look natural and are highly functional. They tend to feel better and more stable than dentures and removable partials. Best of all, they will last a lifetime if properly maintained. A dental implant requires no alterations to the adjacent teeth. Regular oral hygiene is required for implants to stay clean and healthy. It’s also important to regularly visit McKenzie River Dental for routine follow-up appointments and cleanings to keep your new smile healthy and bright!

Do you or a loved one have missing teeth?

An estimated 120 million people in the U.S. are missing at least one tooth and 36 million Americans don’t have any teeth. Missing teeth can lead to nutritional changes, obesity, diabetes, coronary artery disease, and some forms of cancer.

Dental Bridges

Dr. Welch and Dr. Schilt can provide an individualized dental bridge to replace missing teeth. Teeth adjacent to the area of missing teeth are crowned and used as anchors to support the restorations.

A strict regimen of brushing and flossing will keep the bridge and surrounding teeth clean. Good dental care of these teeth is critically important, as the bridge relies on the neighboring teeth for support.
