The loss of one or more teeth can compromise the function, comfort, and health of your smile.
Dental implants are titanium devices that can replace tooth roots to provide the best support for restorations while preventing jaw recession.
Dr. David Casagrande, with offices in Billings, MT, and Boise, ID, can help you experience the many benefits of this advanced solution...
Traditional dentures are not anchored to your jaw. This can leave them susceptible to shifting, especially while eating or speaking. Dental implants are anchored directly to the jaw, which allows patients to enjoy steaks and other chewy or tough foods without the fear of their denture slipping out of place.
Prevention of Bone Atrophy
The loss of even one tooth can lead to jawbone recession. Your dental implants will replace lost tooth roots, providing the stimulation necessary to prevent bone atrophy and avoid the related issues that can arise.
With proper care and regular visits to your dentist, titanium dental implants can last a lifetime. Thanks to advancements in dental technology and high-quality materials, implant failure is increasingly uncommon in patients with good oral health. A growing number of people with compromised smiles are seeking implants as an alternative to traditional dental solutions.
Implants can be used to help those who need to replace one tooth, several teeth, or all teeth. They can be used in many different configurations to provide support to a variety of restorations, helping virtually anyone who has suffered tooth loss to experience the benefits of a complete smile once again.

No matter which dental implant option you choose, Dr. Casagrande will use premium-quality Nobel Biocare® implants. These are the highest-quality dental implants on the market, and they offer the greatest likelihood of long-term success.
During your consultation, Dr. Casagrande may recommend that you receive:
Traditional Dental Implants
Traditional dental implants are placed vertically in the jaw by Dr. Casagrande. They can replace a single lost tooth in conjunction with a dental crown. Multiple dental implants can be placed to support a dental bridge, partial denture, or a full denture.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
Those who require the restoration of an entire arch may be good candidates for All-on-4 dental implants. The technique can be used on either the lower jaw, upper jaw, or both. Those who have suffered jaw atrophy may also be good candidates for this restorative option because often, they can eliminate the need for bone grafting.
Bridges Supported on Dental Implants
This treatment replaces an entire dental arch by using implants to support three dental bridges. During your consultation, Dr. Casagrande can determine if this or another implant configuration is the best way to meet your needs.
In order to receive dental implants, you should have enough bone tissue in the jaw and be in good overall health. To ensure the success of your dental implants, you should also be free of periodontal disease. Unhealthy habits such as smoking should be stopped prior to treatment, as these can interfere with the healing process and lead to implant failure.
Even if you have been told that you are not a good candidate because your case is too complicated to be treated, Dr. Casagrande's experience as a prosthodontist makes him qualified to undertake the most complex cases—even those involving oral trauma. He often treats patients who have been told by other doctors that they are ineligible for dental implants.
If you have been told that you are not a good candidate for dental implants due to jawbone recession, Dr. Casagrande can coordinate and oversee bone grafting procedures, which are performed by a trusted oral surgeon.
Digital computed tomography (CT) allows the doctor to evaluate your jaw and each tooth in great detail and determine whether you are a good candidate for implants and whether you might need a bone graft or sinus lift. These scans are paired with computer-guided systems to place the implants with incredible precision.
These technologies minimize the risk of implant failure and related concerns, such as nerve damage and disruption of the sinus cavity.
Dental implants are widely regarded as the most secure and functional method for replacing missing teeth. Because we use trustworthy, biocompatible materials and a precise placement technique, you can potentially enjoy the benefits of your implants for the rest of your life. We also use only high-quality abutments, which are the devices that attach your implants to your restorations. If you are looking for a respected and skilled prosthodontist in Boise or Billings to place dental implants, we welcome you to contact our office online.
If you decide to receive implants at our Billings, MT, or Boise, ID, offices, Dr. Casagrande will discuss all of your surgical and sedation options to make certain that you feel comfortable about your procedure. During your surgical care, we will place the titanium implants into your jaw through small incisions in your gums. Dr. Casagrande uses computer-guided technology to ensure precision and minimize the risk of a failed implant. This advanced technology can also help ensure a lower risk of nerve damage, minimize bleeding, and result in an overall shorter surgery and recovery time. These sophisticated tools and methods can make your treatment timeline as efficient as possible.
My experiences with Dr. Casagrande have been wonderful. Him and his staff run a very organized and professional practice. They do a great job keeping the patients comfortable and happy. I am very satisfied with my dental services.

After oral surgery, it will take approximately four to six months before the bone tissue and the implants are fully integrated. During this time, the biocompatible implants fuse with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. While you are healing, we provide temporary restorations so that you never have to go without teeth or feel self-conscious about your smile. Dr. Casagrande will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions and teach you healthy oral hygiene habits to ensure the success of your implant treatment.
Once your implants are fully integrated with your jaw, you may return to our office to receive your abutments (small devices that connect your implants to your restorations) and your permanent dentures, bridges, or crowns. Once in place, the abutment will remain accessible above the gumline, but covered by the restoration. All restorations are custom-created for your specific needs and goals and are made of high-quality materials that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Casagrande is uniquely qualified to make sure your restorations look entirely natural.
Dental implants are not usually covered by insurance, so Dr. Casagrande strives to keep pricing low, has options to fit all budgets, and accepts financing through CareCredit® and LendingClub. Baseline cash prices at our practice, including the abutments, are:
These prices do not include sedation, which is paid directly to the anesthesiologist. Other cost factors associated with dental implants can include:
- Bone grafting
- Tooth extractions
- The type of sedation used
You can receive your personalized cost estimate (including a breakdown of individual costs), during your consultation at our Boise, ID, or Billings, MT, office. We understand that this treatment can be a significant investment, and we strive to be completely transparent regarding the costs. We offer financing to help you make the cost of dental implants a comfortable fit for your budget.
Choosing the right implant dentist is the single most effective measure you can take to ensure the success of your restorative dentistry treatment. Dr. Casagrande is an experienced and compassionate implant dentist who will guide you through every step of the procedure, from your initial consultation to the placement of your restorations. To schedule a consultation at our Boise office or our Billings office, call us at (800) 874-4667 or contact us online for more information. We look forward to helping you to experience the many benefits of a healthy, functional smile.
“On October 21, 2105, I had my new set of (implants) on the tops and the bottoms. I haven’t stopped smiling since. The other day we ran into another setback (leave it to me to be the first), and as always Dr. Dave and the staff was behind me 100% to make it right. I’ve never once looked back. Thank you for everything."”Charlotte G.
