Dental implanting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing teeth with metal, screwlike posts. It is composed of three different parts, namely the post, abutment, and restoration, or crown. Dental implants are beneficial to your oral health and can blend into your natural smile. The average life expectancy of implants is 10 to 30 years if they are well-cared for.
A healthy routine and maintenance are needed when caring for your implants. This habitual routine includes:
- Brushing and flossing your teeth
- A biannual visit to your dentist
- Avoid smoking
- Live a healthy lifestyle
Nothing lasts forever, so they say. This can be true if you lose several of your natural or permanent teeth. However, dentures can give your smile a second chance! And this natural-looking tooth replacement that fits your gums comfortably is customizable and removable.
What We Offer:
- Full Dentures: These dentures sit on top of your gums and replace an entire upper or lower set of teeth.
- Partial Dentures: These dentures replace a few missing teeth and are anchored to existing teeth. They help keep other teeth from moving and prevent future dental problems.
- Implant-retained Dentures (partial or full): This type of denture is secured to dental implants that act like natural roots.
Crowns and Bridges
When a tooth is severely decayed or damaged, a dental crown can protect it from further damage. The crown is placed on top of the damaged tooth to protect and restore its function and strength. With our use of modern technology, your crown will look and feel like your natural tooth while blending in seamlessly with your smile.
During the crown procedure:
- Our dentist begins by removing any decay or damage
- He then shapes the tooth to enable the crown to fit
- Impressions of your damaged tooth and surrounding teeth are sent to the lab
- Your crown is constructed using exact specifications
- Your crown is placed and attached with a special adhesive
You can enjoy a fully functional and beautiful smile once again!
Losing a tooth can be an extremely stressful situation and a potential risk for your whole health if left untreated.
With a dental bridge, Our dentist can restore your smile back to health in no time. A bridge consists of one artificial tooth bonded to and held into place by two crowns. These crowns are cemented to the teeth either side of your missing tooth. The crown then acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place and thus restore your smile.
Dental or cavity fillings in Mountain Home, ID are used by our dentists to restore your teeth that are damaged due to decay. There are several types of dental filling materials that you can choose from. Be it made out of porcelain, gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, or composite. During the procedure, your dentist removes all the affected areas in your teeth (cavities) and cleans them. Then, your chosen type of filling is placed in the area and molded. He polishes the surface to inhibit your bite.
Fillings are simple, and they last for about 10 to 15 years or longer if properly maintained. They can also withstand chewing forces and are generally aesthetic or appealing.

Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays, like fillings, are placed when a tooth has suffered extensive damage and a part of it has become lost. This procedure is a great alternative to ensure the tooth’s survival. Inlays and onlays are made of a solid, customized material to fit your tooth.
This treatment provides additional support and strength for your damaged teeth and allows them to withstand chewing pressure. When well-cared for, inlays and onlays last longer. Also, you can choose the type of inlays and onlays.
Aside from the dental services we offer here at Mountain Home Dentistry Co., we also provide temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) therapy. TMJ disorder is a common issue that occurs when the specific joint becomes inflamed and results in migraines, a sore jaw, a painful neck, and even ringing in the ears. Stress, teeth grinding, clenching, or trauma are all potential triggers for this disorder.
If you are experiencing these symptoms, your dentist will then require dental X-rays to examine your teeth and jaw. Or CT scans that can provide detailed images of the bones in your joint, or an MRI that can reveal the problems surrounding your joint’s disk or soft tissue.
While your healthcare providers here at Mountain Home Dentistry Co. always look for alternatives to ensure the survival of your teeth, sometimes restorative measures such as dental fillings are not enough. When a tooth is beyond repair and saving, an extraction will be necessary when it is already causing you so much trouble and harming your dental health. Or, at times, a tooth extraction will be required in preparation for a future procedure (i.e., orthodontics).
Extraction will be necessary and recommended by your dentist if you have experience with the following:
- Severe gum disease
- Crowded teeth
- Fractured or impacted tooth
- Severe tooth decay
- Dental injuries
