Achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is a popular reason why most patients pursue professional oral care. But what happens when you lose a permanent tooth? If one or more of your teeth are missing, chipped, or cracked, it’s essential to have the issue addressed to prevent further oral health issues.
What Is Implant Dentistry?
Dental implants are synthetic substitutes placed in the root area of your missing tooth or teeth. Because they are anchored to your jawbone, they remain in the same position and feel like real teeth. And with new advances in implant dentistry, the majority of implants are beautifully designed to look natural and create the illusion of a real tooth.
At Dakota Dental, you’ll have access to a wide selection of professional dental implant services to replace any loose, damaged, or missing teeth with natural looking, comfortable tooth alternatives.

Dental Implants vs. Dentures
If your current solution to tooth loss involves dentures or partial dentures that won’t stay in place or are generally frustrating, dental implants may be an effective, alternative solution to natural looking teeth. Traditional dentures can cause the following oral issues:
- Delay Your Speech
- Restrict Your Diet
- Damage Your Bone Underneath
- Cause You Pain and Discomfort
Dental implants are an excellent solution to avoiding these problems while enjoying the benefits of teeth that look and feel natural.
An added benefit of choosing dental implants is that your procedure may not require general anesthesia. A dental implant procedure is minimally invasive, and most patients have them professionally placed using a local anesthetic. We also offer in-office sedation as an option.
