Dental Implant Placement & Restoration

Dental implants, or titanium root replacements, are a wonderful way to replace missing teeth under many conditions. (Such things as your overall health and the length of time you have been missing your teeth must be considered.) The replacement of missing teeth using dental implants can sometimes require “bone grafting”. The bone grafting process can take 3-4 months to complete but it allows implants to be placed in areas where insufficient bone is currently present. The process allows insufficient bone to be built-up in width and density to accept and stabilize an implant. After your dentist does a thorough examination, which may include a 3D x-ray of the area, a treatment plan for implant(s) placement takes place. Most treatment can be done here at Eagle Rock Dental Care however; some cases may be referred to a specialist, a periodontist or an oral surgeon, who will place the implant(s) into the site. When healing is complete, usually after 3-6 months, we will place the crown or bridge segment on top of the healed implant(s). Some dentists are trained to place the surgical part of the implant as well as the prosthetic/tooth part. We can help you determine which implant option is right for you!

Implants are great way to replace a single missing tooth with the final product looking just like a normal tooth to match your other teeth. These types of implants and crowns look and feel natural. They also function as a normal tooth would in the mouth and the ADA has statistics of longevity being 10 to 25 years and more!

Implants can also be used to replace many or all missing teeth. Implants can be used to hold a bridge or even dentures. If you have multiple missing teeth and you are using a partial denture, implants can replace that partial denture and allow you to have a permanent restoration; instead of one you take out every night and put back in the morning.

Also, if you have a pair of complete dentures on top and/or bottom, implants can be used to better retain the dentures in your mouth. No more floppy dentures when you eat or talk. With multiple implants, the dentures can be stable! Many of the foods that were hard to eat previously become enjoyable once again!

I have been going to Eagle Rock Dental for 7 years. I have been to several different dentists throughout my life, including dentists in the Navy as well as dentists in Utah. Dr. Bauer is by far the most thorough and competent dentist I have had the pleasure of going to. He is very knowledgeable and stays current on all the new techniques. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends and family. I appreciate him repairing some of the less than satisfactory dental work I have had in the past.

Wow! Eagle Rock Dental Care is the best! As a student at BYU-Idaho, I am (obviously) SUPER broke, so it’s great to know there’s someone, literally right down the street, who is willing to work with me financially to get my dental needs taken care of, and within my budget. The front desk, hygienists, assistants, and Dr.’s are AWESOME! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Especially to College Students located here in Rexburg! The perfect fit!

Quite comfortable waiting area. It also has an area for children to play. The staff is upbeat, professional, pleasant and personable. The assistant, Melanie, and Dr. Hammond made me feel comfortable and welcomed. They both did a great job repairing my loose crown from another dentist’s work from years ago. I highly recommend this office for all your dental needs.

Great service! I’ve seen several dentists who seem like they’re trying to pay off their student loans by recommending a lot of unnecessary fillings and other work. Not here. If they see something, they’ll let you know and usually watch it for a while to make sure it actually is a problem. The hygienists are courteous and friendly, and the dentists do great work. If you or they aren’t satisfied with something, they’ll make it right.

Dr. Hammond is always so kind. Besides doing excellent dental work, he always makes me feel good about coming in. They can do crowns right in the office, which speeds up the process and reduces the number of visits. I have always received quality work. The dental hygienist that cleans my teeth, is very thorough, gentle, and easy to talk to (when her hands aren’t in my mouth). Even though I don’t live close, I am willing to drive the extra distance to see this dental team. I would recommend them to anyone!
